    My attorney and I ventured through Tehachepi looking for Things, and we found several. This one really strange cloud kept following us throughout the whole later part of the day and into the night.

    Having recently acquired my first dSLR (Nikon D70s), it was time to start revisiting a few places I’d discovered before and wanted to capture better. This spot is one that I’ve been back to many, many times over the years. I love watching graffiti hot spots constantly evolve over time.

  3. The Junkyard Gospel is evolving again into a new thundering form. Come and witness the fury tonight at Scotland Yard in Canoga Park. We’re on at 10pm, followed by @magnastic.

    A night mission to Venice with The Charioteer and The Man in the Dark Alley. I’ve had a lot of damn fine adventures with these guys over the years. Many such night missions to find strange spots of light to make magic in. There was always such a great sense of experimentation on these kind of nights. Looking at some of the results now, I can’t help but feel that there’s a certain amateurish quality to a lot of them - but of course that wasn’t my main concern back then.

    Another day in Venice. Not a lot to say about this one.

    I didn’t shoot much that day, since I was trying out selling some of my prints on the boardwalk. I did this for a couple months, never really sold too many but definitely had a lot of interesting conversations with people.

    Another day in a week heavily focused on Venice Beach.

    I spent a lot of time down at Venice Beach from 2006-2008. For a good while, it was a nice default way to spend an otherwise free day, despite having to drive out there from The Valley.

    I’ve always loved the ever-changing graffiti wall out there - getting to watch artists in their process, and the perpetual chance that something entirely different could be over a piece I watched be created the next time I went out there.

    NOTE: If any of this is your art on the graffiti wall, please contact me and let me know! Or if you spot it as something a friend of yours did. I’d like to be able to credit the artists, and know whose now-painted-over art I happened to preserve with my camera.

    Roaming around Downtown LA for an afternoon, poking through all sorts of strange little shops. Some pretty good mannequin action from this day, and definitely some interesting sights at the Santeria shop.

    Stopped through Cabazon on the way back from a trip through Joshua Tree. Looking back through the photos from this day, there were surprisingly few decent images from the desert. Can’t win every time, I suppose.
