Berlin, Germany Part 2

Soon I will go back to good ole' B&W photos, I get my film back this weekend.
A shadow of my former self.
The German edition...
The golden hour was kind to us.
Berliner Dom, springtime.
Changing film, Deanna style.
Someone lost thier photos on the train tracks...
I was hoping for some illicit imagery, but alas, twas only normal.
Hanging out in the Helmut Newton photography museum. They are total dicks about taking photos in there, so I had to sneak a few.
Two whole rooms are framed pages from his big book SUMO, sorta weird that they are not real prints, but you get to see a lot of stuff, even if you can see it all in book form at your own house.

The bookstore had The Prevailing Nothing, that was unexpected.
Saw this dude Walton Ford's show at the Hamburger Banhoff.
Giant Flea.

i won't be sick of your travel life as long as you keep posting photos of your shadowy pee-pee.

plus, i check my email, my friend's site, your site, maybe some news or, stop for a while, and then repeat. coming here has just become a habit. i'll be here in good times and bad.

i'm in germany, too. I got in yesterday--the airline lost my luggage with my board in it. my emotions -> :(

Is your stomach covering your dick in that piss photo? Get some skin tight pants and retarded sunglasses and cruise around suburbia on your bike to lose weight.

Paris au printemps.

Oh yeah, you totally bring photos of your GF's ass to Wal Mart for those trolls to develope I.E. print.

So,uh. Naked ladies and black and white photos? Boring.
My kind of art:

Imagine eating a flea that big,nevermind,you're vegan. maybe a little bite?

yeah,dude. Fuck you and fuck your traveling and actually going outside.
Just kidding :)
Is this your summer vacation or something? Enjoy your Europe days,overlord.

Vinny,it must suck all your shit is who knows where. Security guards are wiping their buttcracks with your clothes.

I sounded like a dick in that comment.

Oh yeah, I spent my time yesterday watching my Grandma die. She like just stopped breathing. I lost the charger for the nice camera so I couldn't take photos of her. She was like skin and bones and laid there staring off and had bruises and stuff from her capillaries breaking. Gnarly. I spent yesterday hugging my Mom.

Cool Captcha this time though

what the hell? it took me like 2 minutes to figure out what the first picture was and then down here in the comments everyone figured it out so quickly it seems haha.

I didn't like Walton Ford's art two years ago, now I can appreciate it. Anyone know if he also did the giant flea?

Delicious Souvenirs haha, what souvenir is edible?

on a serious note, my condolences to you Jgonz

Thanks, Mike

JGonz, you speak of death so nonchalantly, but there is no substance in these texts. I'm sorry about your grandmother.

Nudity! Yeah!

I haven't picked up Kerouac in years. I recently started Dharma Bums & Lord knows I can't stop... Nudity, booze, mountains, Buddhism, sex, etc.. He's so good.

Was your hand a marker for how big that giant flea is?

Please bring me back that book. I have money now, so I'll try to buy everything Ed T. or Toy Machine.

I'd lost the prints to my first roll of film a few years ago. My sister had them under the seat of her car for 3 years.

Nice head.

Posted By: Jgonzalez on June 10th, 2010 at 04:32PM PST

We're friends on that titty site.

Most are mine, though.

"A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist." –Stewart Alsop

"The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time." –Mark Twain

"To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent." –Buddha

"To himself everyone is immortal; he may know that he is going to die, but he can never know that he is dead." –Samuel Butler

I kinda felt like a dick thinking to myself "My grandma needs to die" because not only is there really any reason to get better since she is doomed because of her Dementia and breathing problems she has to keep on suffering. Whenever we saw her we had to remind her who's dead and where she is and why and how long she's been there. Second hand smoke ruined her lungs.

"Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone.
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go"

It's weird watching what the body does to try and survive.
Something called,you know, evolution.
