Here's what happens if you hang around at Fortress Hennepin long enough ....

Daphne went to see Trillian's new play, The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later and stuck around after the show, she had two hours to kill before dinner so she came back to our place and I had lights set up because I thought novelist Jeanine Cummins was coming over so I could do her headshot (she wasn't). So Daphne and I decided to go to the thrift store and see if there was anything cool there.

And we found this dress for $1.95. And we took some photos while Trillian did research on Ada Lovelace for a play. Then Daphne went to lunch and trillian_stars and I watched a movie that scared the chrome off of us and went to bed. That's kind of how things go around here.

You have such wonderful adventures!

Passer by: "WTF?!?!?!"
Gas Station dude: "Oh, that's Kyle, our neighborhood photographer. We just let him do his thing in our parking lot. He doesn't bother anybody."


There are some really beautiful shots in this batch. There's a window one I really like and the shlumpy one on the stairs where she's looking right at the camera (you NEVER see shlumpy + confrontation by a beautiful woman. It's GREAT!).

I'm always a little apprehensive about the passers by. Never know how people are going to react. usually it's "OMG ARE YOU A MODEL CAN I GET A PICTURE OF YOU?" but people who stand and gawk make me nervous. it's easier with a production manager / assistant who can run interference.

I think that's precisely the problem that doomed me as a photographer. I've got that Must Be Aware of Everything tic that people who were bullied as kids often have. I rarely felt completely comfortable focusing on my photograph-ing when I was outside. Studio was fine, but anywhere else was fraught with peril.

I'm having the Urge to take Good Pictures again. About to rid myself of all my film-based stuff. Might be time to get a nicer digital setup than my current point and lousy-shoot.

Totally agree on the value of the shlumpy one on the stairs. Super shot.

By the by, I was compelled - compelled - to listen to LCD Sound System while checking this out. Wonderful job on a spontaneous shoot!
