a photographer talks

Yes I went to Austin Psychedelic Festival for the second time this year. I will start posting some photos and add as I can. I saw this on the floor at the airport waiting to get on the airplane.

This is the poster for the 2014 APF pre party at Red 7 in the city.

Breakfast was a waffle shaped like the state of Texas. I was staying at  Le Quinta Motel where Sabzz and Parker were also staying. Sabzz was flying in from Germany and Parker from Washington and I would see them at RED 7 pre party that night. 

I booked a room with 2 queen size beds so that one could be my closet. I can make a mess of a room in a very short time.

I went for a swim,  bit of a walk in the pool that was 4ft 6in at the deep end. No was around. 
Then I took a cab to downtown Austin to check out were RED 7 was and get lunch. Dave Olson was in Austin but though we messaged each other to meet for lunch it did not happen. Dave is a friend from Vancouver who was in Austin for other reasons.

RED 7, cool sign.

Another cool sign Red Eyed Fly.

So I ate at Stubbs, BBQ was ok but somehow it was not as good as I had thought it would be.

But having a friend who's last name is Stubbs, I thought is was a good place to get him a t-shirt.

I walked around the area for a while and found this red wall that has staples and more staples from many poster I guess.

I sat outside in the lane and listen to the Warlocks sound check. I did not hear my favourite song but they did play it later that night. Shake The Dope Out.

yet again

6 hours talking on the phone to a nice man I was contacted by on Plenty of Fish

that was last night

today I get a note from him that his x has contacted him, and he wants to put meeting me for coffee off, as it is not fair to her.

I blocked him, called him and said I thought his behaviour had an undertone that even having a coffee was off limits.

Yesterday he was single and today.... god I hate people that I do not know, and I love my friends, those of you that know me.

My mood.

year and no blog

Well one year I ignored this blog. Seems a bit careless on my part. That could be. I just goy back from The Austin Psych Festival. I think this is one of the most amazing little festivals. I bought my tickets for my flight in February and looked forward as the Canadian money fell in value.

Well I am sitting in the same place with the same pants on, strange loop. I often think if time and how strange it is. What do you guys think of time? The Jumbo box of raisin brand is gone.
I took this photo with my iPad Mini. I have to stop going into the Apple store, it must be the lights, or the air.
