"God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy!"

I haven't shared a video in a while, and this one struck a chord with me, so I wanted to pass it along to y'all. I like to listen to music while I'm editing photos, and normally I just let the tunes play in the background. But the other day I happened to catch the video for this jam, and it completely changed my interpretation...

Check it out when you get a chance, and let me know what you think.

Have you ever listened to a song, then saw the accompanying music video and had a different opinion about it?

In this case I felt the story took on a whole new meaning, and really made me think about the poignant moments expressed. What first seemed comical and lighthearted soon became profound and introspective.

If you have a favorite music video, or a similar story about one, please feel free to share it in the comments below.

Have a great day!

My friend +Julian Ortiz is going to be part of an exhibit later this month in DC. If you or someone you know live in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area (or the surrounding region), I encourage you to check out his work. His street photography is truly unique, and embraces the old school (B&W) film aesthetic. Click on the original post below to learn more...
 
EXPOSEDDC 2015 - Opening reception - March 12th, 6 to 10 p.m.

Like some of you know, one of my photos, "next car reader "(http://goo.gl/SNqy06) was selected to be part of the 2015 +Exposed DC Annual Photography Show.
Here is the info of the opening reception:

venue: 1358 NE (Capital Fringe headquarters)
address: 1358 Florida Ave NE - Washington, DC 20002

Two floors of awesome D.C. photography
Available for first-time art-buyer prices
Selection of locally-made beers from Bluejacket
Complimentary wine

Full-color program exhibition available for $10
*$14 in advance: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/9982244*
$20 at the door

Maybe for a lot of you it is going to be impossible to go, but I'm pretty sure that you know someone that live here or a friend that have a friend that live here in the DC area, so I'm asking you to share all the information of the show. Like the old times, when I was the singer of a hardcore punk band and no internet. Just the simple but effective way to promote a show: a flyer and/or mouth to mouth.

If you live here in the area, come and say hi!. Don't be shy, My English has an strong Argentine accent, but it is going to be fun, and you are going to see and meet 40 DC photographers that is going to show you the city in a different way!

Thanks is advance for the share!

"Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides."
~ Junichiro Tanizaki






I understand the #MacroMonday  sub-theme this week is "Shadows", so here is my submission. Many thanks to the curators for their tireless efforts reviewing and commenting on everyone's posts. +Sandra Parlow +Wendy Baker +Jules B and of course last but definitely not least, the birthday boy +Jeff Moreau. Yeah, I know buddy, I'm a little late to the party, but I hope you'll forgive my tardiness, as I was tired from shoveling ice last night, and didn't get to post on time... Happy Birthday! +Jeff Moreau

+Anna Rimovska +Sharon P Many thanks!

+Alex James Yeah, I know what you mean. All we've had is snow and cold lately. I can't wait for Spring to arrive! This shot was from last Spring, when a sudden sun shower left these tiny droplets all over the foliage.

+Bryce Hernsdorf​ Yeah, the event was outside, and we would've stayed and watched longer but the temp was below zero! When I get a chance, I'll put up some shots I got while they were carving the ice sculptures with a chainsaw.

"Just a second, I'm almost ready for my closeup..."

As you can see, this #seagull  was a little bit of a diva, and had to finish primping before letting me click the shutter and capture some of those fancy feathers. Little did she know I had the focus beep turned OFF, so I could freely snap away quietly with these blackmail test shots...

Anyway, if you haven't already guessed today is #splatterday , or as the #gulluminati  are known to call it: #seagullbuttsaturday .  Obviously you must know by now that this is a #nontheme . So don't go looking for fancy curators and all that, just tell the little birdie she looks perfect the way she is, before she flies away again...

I was in a big hurry, lots of stuff going on over the weekend, and didn't get a chance to copy and paste all of the (official) non-curators. So I'm really grateful to those of you that took the time to stop by and share a few kind words.

I'm not sure what kind of flower bud this is, but as soon as I saw it, I thought of a magical pea pod from a fairy tale. And since today is Friday, and Fridays are #bokehlicious , I'm sharing this lovely little gem with the rest of the #bokeholics  crew: +Leo Deegan +Paul Moody +Robin Griggs Wood +Angie Smith +Wesly Smith +paula contreras +Michael B. Stuart +Kathleen Kent +Melissa Beagle +Elizabeth Hahn +Robin Cohen and many more who appreciate #bokehphotography  and #bokehphotos  as much as we do. Hope you all have a magical weekend, full of inspiration and unlimited possibilities!

Introduction

By day I work in Business Development & Marketing for an online retailer.  Some of the sandboxes I get to play in include Email Marketing, Affiliate Management, Social Media Marketing, Copy Writing, Copy Editing, Proofreading, SEO, and Google Analytics.

At night and on weekends I prefer a more creative playground, where I can experiment with Digital Photography & Photoshop.  I take my camera with me everywhere I go, but am finally starting to learn to take fewer shots and instead compose images before clicking the shutter.  As time permits, I enjoy sharing images in the +Daily Photography Themes.  I met a number of amazing photographers in this community, and constantly find new inspiration. Want to know what we talk about? Thanks to +Jari Huomo you can easily browse through some of the best conversations from my page.

Other places you might occasionally find me online include Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Klout just to name a few.

I regularly participate in +Chrysta Rae’s Photography Scavenger Hunt, which I highly recommend not only for learning more about your own photography, but for making lots of new friends.  Here are just a few of the incredible people with whom I have the pleasure of interacting: +Chrysta Rae +Alan Shapiro +Kimberly Pemberton +Gary Munroe +Mel Peifer +Eustace James +Gilmar Smith +Mark Rodriguez +LaDonna Pride +GeneBowker If you are interested in learning more about the Hunt, and perhaps wish to view some photos from the latest adventure, check out this post!

Car Sense has a very comfortable hospitality suite, complete with refreshments and free WiFi. The repair process can often be confusing and full of anxiety; but Scott left me feeling like I was in good hands, clarifying all the details and simplifying the paperwork I had to deal with. Even when I'm only there for a routine oil change, the staff is always friendly and helpful. These folks understand that an excellent Customer Service experience brings loyal patrons back over and over again. THANK YOU Scott (and the Car Sense staff) for taking such good care of my vehicle!
