why the moon

why the moon?
even when I was alone.
I never felt lonely.
I knew that when I looked up
she was there.
somewhere.

I remember sitting in a hotel room
missing her so much.
but I knew the moon I saw out my window
saw her too.

I felt warm.

Wien Trees, Schiele Poem

egon-poem

I was really disappointed when I got this roll back from the lab ,
Everything turned red … but now it seems to work .
Yesterday I was reading a book of poems and letters by my favorite artist Egon Schiele.
He wrote :

I ENTER INTO THE REDDISH-BLACK
CATHEDRAL OF THE DENSE FIRWOODS
WHICH LIVE ABSENT OF NOISES AND
REGARD THEMSELVES
IN A FACIAL EXPRESSION
THE EYE-TRUNKS GRASPING EACH OTHER
TIGHTLY AND THE VISIBLE
WET AIR EXHALE
THE WELL-BEING EVERYTHING IS
LIVING DEAD .

-EGON SCHIELE

This photo was takin in the forest down the street from one of his studios in the 13th district of Vienna.

Egon Schiele, Studio and Death bed

love and death

From across the street , Egon Schiele would flash paintings from his studio (Right) to the house across the street (Left) where his future wife Edith lived with her parents and sister. Which would also end up being the place where the both of them took their last breath , Edith on Oct. 28th, 1918, Egon on Oct. 31, 1918.

flying home

flying home from New Mexico
my 6×9 back has a really crazy bad light leak, which is kind of a bummer ,

I’ve only shot a few rolls with this camera and had 3 or 4 photos come out without that leak ,
maybe I’ll look into getting a new one soon

I’ve been wrestling with posting some photos , I think that more will be coming up sooner than later since they are many of my favorite photos

“Hastings, Home”

hastings man red coat

hastings home
picture 1 , some dead flowers right across the street i love these flowers
2 down in the heart of the east side someone was walking around sticking random things to walls , i cant remember what the other objects were but this feather caught my eye down at the salvation army .
3 i was walking downtown and i love when light reflects off the gold windows of the buildings and shines light from the wrong direction
4 sitting on the stairs writing
5 walking across the bridge back towards home the sky looked nice

hastings home 2
walking down hastings home.
the first photo is just down the street from my house , there is usually a guy standing right under this part of the fence selling random goods , today he was packing up when i walked by so i snapped a flick .
i dunno if i gained a ton of weight , but i dont think im as large as my shadow makes it look in the second photo . this was a really weird scene , the man opening the door was walking with one of the local ladies of the street , thats one of the rent by the hour hotels about 4 blocks form my house
getting closer i saw these shoes next to a trash can , i thought it looked nice ,
next is about 2 blocks from my house it was really weird to see how empty the street was , people looked at me weird in cars when they saw me take this picture ,
the last picture just caught my eye , the colors were really nice 2 days ago

I live in one of the poorest area codes in North America.
It’s one of the craziest scenes that anyone could imagine.
Yet it’s also really beautiful if you look at it a little different.
Warm days in the fall sun are some of my favorite.

Daniel Johnston

walking away

sound check

It was pretty surreal to walk into an empty club to see Daniel standing on stage.

waiting at the light

picking a song

music

I was talking to Dick ( Daniel’s brother ) When I looked over at Daniel. He had his eyes closed and was singing along with the song ” you’re so vein ” he was so into the song, Right as I pressed the button he started to laugh, looked at me and said “I love this song” and continued to singing.

daniels hands shake

Daniel’s hands shake a lot.

daniel not shaking

Sometimes they stop though when he’s telling a story or listening to someone talk.

singing devil town

Walking down the street people kept coming up to Daniel. One Girl came up to us and said “hey”. He looked at her and said “You look like a vampire” and he just walked away. He looked at us and said “Everyone looks like vampires these days, they all have fangs” Then he started to sing “Everyone was vampires, turns out I was a vampire myself, devil town ” he laughed a little then lit another menthol cigarette.
