Discreet Desert Robots

I've been obsessing about these power towers outside the apartment complex where I'm living. It's just a bit towards where the city ends and where the desert begins. Going home from the turnpike, they loom in the horizon like the skeletal remains of a giant. Perhaps that of a robot...

Two Sisters

In any city's back streets, there would always be family businesses that specialize in a certain trade. Shoes, paper making, goldsmithing, lantern making... But none as delightful as making traditional Chinese steamed buns. These two lovely ladies have been baking red bean buns, the family specialty, for nearly 80 years. They still sit out in the afternoon and watch the rest of the world go about their business everyday at 4'o clock with tea or with the day's newspaper.

Salarymen Off To Work

Remember that time when we were bored out of our heads and we decided to take our hijinks to the train station? I remembered you wanted to somehow write our names somewhere in each car train much like how'd you used to do in Berlin, you told me. But we had to do so covertly. The JR train conductors could be a real threat (though a polite one).

Then we ate our bentos in the bench and pretended to wait for the train that we'll never board. Not that time, anyway. We both sang our favorite Bloc Party song. And like Kele, we laughed at all the people off to work. So monochrome and so lukewarm.

Do you still remember? All those salarymen we all thought to be ants. And we, for a time, thought we had everything all figured out?

Juice Box Camera

So I've got this weird new little guy I've been carrying around and snapping photos with...

Think it's a juice box? Well think again!..... 

This harmless looking gizmo packs so much color and takes wide angles.. 

It's my favorite camera right now... Heeeee...

Breaking Waves

I like bringing my Smena 8 around on clear sunny days. Alex is somewhere in this photo breaking waves and outsplashing the rest. Yey!
