Resonance Cascade

I never thought I’d see a resonance cascade, let alone create one! I am imagining the general theme for this entry will end up being things overlapping, like the occurrences presented and images themselves. When you’re shooting 2 cameras concurrently it creates a challenge to sort them back together, but since a couple of these rolls are rife with double exposures then perhaps the fair lady of the universe has sent a resonance upon my cortex.

Our new subway line in Vancouver has a system of television screens which appear will be used for advertising. The first time I rode the line I saw this unregistered software notification on the screen so I snapped thinking it wouldn’t last long. It was at least a couple weeks before they did something about it.

If you’re used to shooting on the street with a 35, this compositional catastrophe is what happens when you try and do it with a 50.

FRM00154

They were getting ready for Halloween already in September at Value Village.

When chasing a child around the store becomes exhausting, this is possibly your best option.

FRM00159

Until it is learned that ears could be very fun toys!

Who likes some kitty portraits? This feline’s name is Frida.

FRM00161

I still believe firmly that the best pet portraits are the ones where you can make them out like historical evil dictators. I couldn’t quite nail that mood here.

Dave.

FRM00164

Hanging out at the studio after working on some tracks.

FRM00177

And here to add some ancient history to this post are a few shots beginning with Kevin.

FRM00178

FRM00179

So this is what ends up happening when you fail to realize or remember that you’ve shot a few frames on this roll before and then pulled it back out of the camera. Oh, and not sure what Kevin is up to but we’ll get a closer look…

FRM00180

Wasn’t sure which framing worked best. The frames are completely off from being aligned.

FRM00181

Quite flattering. If I remember correctly, he had a couple drinks.

FRM00182

FRM00183

This frame helped me finally to date the exposures. It was 2 years ago last September that I was sitting at that table. I was waiting for my new landlord to meet me at the cafe to sign the lease for my new apartment. The same apartment I will leave in 2 weeks.

So this is what the kids are doing these days. They plug the iPod in to the sound system and then they don’t have to actually perform any music, they just get to sing in the microphone. It helps if the venue is almost empty.

FRM00186

This is Tom and he’s waiting to play next. A couple days ago I saw him running for the bus on Broadway. Tom, you run for buses like a fucking pro.

FRM00187

FRM00188

He’s not so bad with the sound machines either. The name of this group is Haunted Beard.

FRM00165

Now, this shot and some that follow point back towards the title of this blog, the thoughts which inspired it and the associated conflicts. If I wish to document, do I have boundaries? I have to admit I’m less and less a fan of those constructs which persist when they do so without imminent harm or danger. But again, harm and danger are too subjective for my confidence.

If you wanted to understand what’s resonating through him I encourage you to find out.

FRM00190

“It’s not what I imagined.”

FRM00192

FRM00193

My favourite for the surreal quality.

Here’s Noah. Seeing him that night was part of a long string of random coinciding encounters we had. Or maybe not so random!

FRM00174

I named this guy Disneyland. Creative, I know.

FRM00175

FRM00196

We wanted to give Scott a ride home but since we had 5 people to fit in the car, with his bike, it wasn’t meant to be.

FRM00197

Another night at Our Town. Noah again, in plaid. Actually, Disneyland is in that picture too haha!

FRM00199

The Collapsing Opposites.

FRM00200

The Head That Was Out Of Focus In The Last Frame.

FRM00201

Thee Ahs. Damn, I came across this looking them up. Big thumbs up around here.

FRM00202

FRM00203

Wasn’t allowed to type between those two.

FRM00204

Dave watching GI Joe PSAs.

FRM00205

Heading home just before sunrise.

FRM00257

FRM00258

FRM00260

Hi, me.

FRM00263

Carcassonne. These double exposures were again a mistake.

FRM00264

As an artist I have some profound statements to make.

FRM00265

See, I told you. I think this statement is something like: I know how far .7m is.

FRM00267

Another important statement: What a Bentley being towed for illegal parking in the handicap zone looks like.

FRM00268

Getting a cappuccino. These are on top of a jazz quartet if you didn’t figure out yet. And it gets weirder.

FRM00269

Like Jon sitting next to himself playing the trumpet while also blowing the trumpet in Rick’s ear back in the previous frame.

FRM00270

So something else that happened at the stag was one guy locking himself in the mens room at the restaurant for an hour. This was a case of what I’d call overenthusiastic pre-drinking. I was in the mens room with Norm, on the left, when he finally unlocked the stall. You can tell Norm isn’t quite sure about this situation.

FRM00271

FRM00272

So there’s Norm playing the drums, with Jon blowing his trumpet while Mike is exhaling his hit off the hookah on the porch behind Norm’s house.

FRM00273

Later in the morning, sitting with Norm before catching a bus back home, and… a pole on a bus.

FRM00275

Trying to look a bit proper the night of Jon’s wedding and another example of flash thievery at a party/show I went to in September.

FRM00276

Meant to do that one actually.

FRM00277

The view in the window of a restaurant with some party goers.

FRM00278

FRM00279

It was groovy to run in to Weston at that party. I had no idea he was into that scene.

FRM00280

FRM00281

This hallway we’re in was stocked with chalks for anyone inspired to create artworks.

FRM00282

Most times when individuals become aware of intended to be candid photograph attempts I’ll just stop because it becomes something I’m not interested in. But I guess sometimes it’s still a good idea to keep going.

FRM00283

Long story, short; this guy thought I couldn’t stop his eyes in a photograph in that light if he kept them moving constantly.

FRM00285

Some thing happening.

FRM00287

FRM00290

Hi, Noah! I am not sure how I received that look from her but I think it makes my temperature rise.

FRM00291

FRM00293

FRM00295

At this point I could click Save Draft and continue this entry later but I’ve reached the extent of what I currently have scanned.
