Elliot Erwitt/Magnum Photos

Today I went to Elliot Erwitt’s lecture on his photography, and it was exactly as what I would have imagined… down to earth and hilarious.

I had the fucking nerve to ask him a question about this particular photo:

"black kid with gun"

Basically, I asked him what he thought of this image since there was no response from the audience, and that I thought it was funny. He answered frankly, “I don’t think it’s funny at all.” F***.

I felt the sodium levels rising within me at that point.

Upon further research of this pic, I found an interview that he did for a Magnum blog article, he was asked, “And if you would have to choose one of your own pictures, one that has something personal, something of yourself in it?

Erwitt reponded with, ” The black kid with the gun to his head.” Interview over.

*BIG SIGH*

Here’s a video essay of his, it’s worth the watch:

So, as expected… school is going quite slow. Why am I so pessimistic and unsure?

ABSA Boat Social

ABSA’s boat social was fun, but I think I realized that ABSA isn’t for me. I’m still a bit hesitant about throwing an entire year’s effort of meeting people out the window… but it’s time to move on.

My favorite food is tacos

I’m not going to say why, but the James and I were in a paticularly bad mood one night, so we ventured to La ¬†Mexicana for some late night eats. I have no idea why, but it hit the spot more than ever.

F***ing barbacoa with avocado, lime, onion, and salsa is the best shit ever, oh and add 2 breakfast tacos… since I love breakfast stuff.

This is my answer to Anthony Bourdain’s “What would be your last meal?” question.

Potential food blog

2009-09-04 12.26.29

I really wanted to start a food blog… but I don’t think people want yet another blog of me feeding my ego. Maybe I should just keep my favorite findings to myself and my friends.

I had lunch at Cafe Mundi on friday, which was really nice especially because Shara came along. I really liked the soup of the day, and I really recommend the joint to anyone looking for a tasty, light lunch. (Excuse my poorly composed picture from my mytouch).

Since we’re on the subject of Shara. I just can’t seem to capture her sweet and oh-so-lovable side. My goal by the end of this school year is to take at least 1 decent picture of her.

Performance Photographer?!

FSA @ Unity

So I got the opportunity to take pictures at Unity, a skit/performance contest put on by the omega phi gamma frat. I felt really cool sitting on the sidelines with a huge lens and multiple DSLRs. The thing is, I wish they gave me better notice, and a practice run through so I could have known wtf was going on.

A lot of pictures turned out quite well, so I’m happy.

Plea!

I’m a pretty lonely guy, so if you ever want to talk about anything…. I’m here for you man (or hopefully girl). As you can tell from this blog… I like food and photography, but we could talk about anything. I’m up for lunch and dinner anytime.
