Portraits 2x

A few changes have been made.

1. A new blog name. Love it? Hate it? Don't care? I still giggle, so really, who cares what you think?

2. I have updated the website with a few new photos. Many of which have been on the blog. A couple which have not. Regardless, take a look. If for nothing else, at least do it to help boost my ego when I look at the web stats.

Here are two recent photos. One is from a recent trip through Mexico on the last passenger train still running. I am hoping the story with make it into publication. I am still waiting to finalize the deal. Soon I will be able to share the photos with you.

The other is my girlfriend's father. He is a retired tailor, who now tends to his land filled with olive trees, lime trees, and a few plums. Nice place to have family.

A Kiss

It's a cliché. A kiss that is.

What? It is.

Passionate and romantic. It's a simple gesture. Everyone likes a kiss. Even the bitter lover waits for a moment to close his eye and escape.

A reassuring kiss can hide a detailed fabrication or recreate a lost dream. A kiss can dry a tear or open a wound depending on the moment.

It's not a bad cliché. One of my favorites. I miss my cliché.
