Morning Time

There is this thing called time. This constant in life that never pauses never stops and never sleeps. It doesn’t care if you are rich or poor. It doesn’t care if you are strong or weak. It doesn’t care if you are old or young. It treats everybody as equals and just keeps on moving. Running towards some goal that we all may never understand but wish we did. It scares people because they have no control over it. It makes them desperately run in the other direction on a moving sidewalk that has no end. And they hid their faces from it when it stares at them from the little places it likes to hide. But I say a pox on that. Look time in the face and smile, grab its hand and go dancing with it, bring it along with you as you live your life to the fullest and never turn away. And remember to always take it. Take some time, or otherwise the world will just run right on by you. So the next time you roll out of bed, stand with your back to the sun and feel the warmth run through your body. And take all the time you need.

Heres to taking time. And heres to oversized sweaters and the beautiful girls who wear them. This lovely lady is Mara, and I think she wears it well. Both the sweater and time. She Is Nicotine.

Nude.

Big Nudes - Helmut Newton

So I have been wondering for awhile now the relevance in shooting nudity. I mean to me it always seemed an easy excuse for art. Take a photo of a girl naked and instantly you have something beautiful and artistic. But really is it? I mean the human form, whether male or female is most certainly beautiful and mysterious, but then isn’t that a cop out? That was my way of thinking until I re-discovered the works of Helmut Newton. He shot nudes, but he gave them character. With him the naked body became a canvas with which to present mood, strength and  true art. He didn’t shoot nudes for the sake of the nudity itself, he used the nakedness as one part of a whole bigger theme, something that I think many photographers don’t do.

Helmut Newton is Nicotine. Big, long hair is Nicotine. Girls with nice eyes are Nicotine.
