I put together a video montage of my photographs from Phillies Phantasy Camp in 2011 and 2012. You can read all about my adventures here at Sarge’s Phillies Phantasy Camp Diary.
Washington, D.C.-based Fugazi is easily one of my favorite rock bands. Their live shows were (and hopefully will continue to be) nothing short of a musical religious experience. A couple years ago, their bassist, Joe Lally, started cataloging and selling recordings of select live shows. Ian MacKaye and his Dischord Records label have now taken this to the next level and have documented every show into a nice, neat database, called the Fugazi Live Series. I immediately searched for the handful of shows that I’ve been to, but only found one with images. My friends and I were dead center in front of the stage, and with my basic point and shoot camera filled with black and white film, I snapped away.
I emailed Dischord and sent along select scans of my photos from that show. Not only did I get a very nice response, but it was from Ian himself.
Recently, the site updated to feature more recordings and pictures. Luckily, my photos from that D.C. show on 9/16/95 are now up on the Dischord website. What kills me is the fact that I am obscured in the photos taken from behind the stage. Drummer Brendan Canty, is directly in front of me. So imagine, instead of his sweaty t-shirt, picture my face, with a cheap camera and awful glasses.
Back in November, my photographs of the Atlantic City boardwalk were picked up by the folks at WordPress and featured on their daily “freshly pressed” section.
No more than a couple hours after posting photos from my recent trip to the Bahamas, WordPress once again, “freshly pressed” my entry and is now featured on their homepage.
Thank you all so much for stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments! I’m truly humbled.
My wife and I just returned from a very relaxing cruise on the Norwegian Jewel. We left the cold, gloomy February weather in New York City, traveled through beautiful and eerie sea smoke, had lunch with my in-laws in Cocoa Beach, took in the perfect weather of the Bahamas, and experienced the incredible maritime exhibition at the Atlantis Resort in Nassau.
Like our last cruise in May, I was armed with my Leica M9, but added my new iPhone 4S into the arsenal. To make it even better, I was armed with the very cool olloclip lens to add a little more ‘oomph’ to my pictures.
All my photos from this trip can be viewed here on Flickr.
The website for the Golden Door International Film Festival has been revamped, and features a lot of my photographs from the opening and closing nights.
Please visit and take a peak!
