@Regrann from @drandallblythe - "KEEP IT LOCAL" Every few months I do one of these posts after I cruise down to the awesome @fountainbookstore here in Richmond, VA & sign a bunch of copies of my book, "Dark Days"- if you want a signed copy of "Dark Days", DO NOT go to freaking EBAY & pay a ludicrously inflated price for it (just checked- they are trying to sell signed copies for between about $60 and ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS there- WTF? I'm not even dead yet- SCREW YOU, EBAY LEECHES.) All you have to do is go to WWW. FOUNTAINBOOKSTORE.COM & order one at THE REGULAR PRICE- yes, THE REGULAR PRICE. This morning I went there & signed a bunch of hardcovers & paperbacks. Yes, Fountain Books ships WORLD-WIDE. Yes, they are INDEPENDENTLY OWNED. Yes, they are GOOD PEOPLE. Plus, if you are PATIENT & want one personalized, let them know with your order & the next time I go down there I'll even write your name in it, no extra-charge whatsoever (again, you have to be PATIENT if you want a personalized one though- I am in & out of town so much that I only stop by there once every few months- you'll get the book whenever I stop by.) Why should people pay some RIP OFF amount when they can just get the book at a regular price? And further more, once again, to you creepy Ebayers who lurk outside shows with your folders of tacky crap (pick guards, multiple copies of the same home printed photos, all that stuff- you're so obvious)-I ain't signing shit for you. You are the ones who screw it up for real fans, plus you are making money off someone else's sweat with your bullshit. So either cut me in, CASH UPFRONT, or GET A REAL JOB. If you don't like it, my advice is to go complain about what a dick I am on the internet- go ahead, get it all out & whine away- PLENTY of other people have over the years. I DO NOT CARE. IT DOES NOT BOTHER ME. AT. FREAKING. ALL. To the rest of you, have a nice day, & SUPPORT INDEPENDENTLY OWNED LOCAL BUSINESSES. #Leica#LeicaCamera#LeicaCameraUSA#LeicaQ#Summilux#Summilux28mm#LeicaCraft #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney#MKexplore#streetdreamsmag#streetphotography#RatsEyesPhotography#HoneTheAesthetic -
More Colorado shots... this one has a technical story behind it. Ever since I read @street.silhouettes "Fast Leica lenses are made for shooting wide open" article on @leicasociety Viewfinder, I've been challenging myself with that call to action. Even when in abundant lighting or with dancing&unstoppable subjects like my 4 year old daughter😍. It's trickier, but much more fun and rewarding when I get the right focus. In this particular case, I actually somewhat missed it (it's in her hand and not face), but I LOVE the effect of the spinning flower disk; it brings movement to the memory of watching her so happy with this daisy.
So in sum... when it comes to shooting for fun, my own interpretation and execution of Horatio's message is: slow down, open up, have fun!

Hello, this is @rubinsteinphoto taking over the for #apachicago this week. Follow along with me through some of my favorite personal work created so far in 2017. We will start with this favorite captured in Santiago, Chile.
Sylvia. She doesn't know, she couldn't know, what I see in her, what she is to me. Sometimes I look at her, amazed, my mother must have felt the same about me, and your mother about you. She's tough, my Sylvia. 15 hours of travel to this place, this stunning city of Santiago, Chile. She is so young, one day, she might not remember this trip. She might not remember this place, but travel changes a person young or old, and in her soul she is finding the world is vast and kind. And so, I make pictures. I make pictures for me, and I make them for you. But truly, I make them for her, and for those who one day, will amaze her too.
