The Pictures Aren't Pretty






















All the people you see in the street, who would rather wear sunglasses than know where they're going, they get put back in the gallery at night, they get covered up for the next day. So they can think that a road is a grey river that'll take them anywhere, as long as they can float. So they can carry on. There are so few real people in this world. Thank you for being one of them.

Dont get lost in the shadows. You hind behind your sunglasses.

I really don't know what this picture yields. But it's a wonderful one. The way I see it, there's a naked women covering herself with plastic.
Great, Jon. And thank you for your words, Iain.

wow...beautiful... the picture's so mysterious... but though it's hard to understand it, it's a very provocative picture in a way that it's mysteriousness provokes a mysteriosu emotion, too.

It sounds silly, but for the first time in a long time I did something I wanted to do today. And all it was was to run through the rain barefoot and jump in puddles. I'm sure there were people watching and shaking their heads, but for that 10 minute romp to my car, I felt real. I felt like I was living.

I'm trying to be one of those real people, not quite just yet.

Why do people hide behind something so see through? Stay real.

We're all "real" at some point in our lives. Even if it's just for a little while. I try to remember that when I'm the only on the street with my eyes open.
