I know I’ve been harping on my merch stores lately, but it’s a lot of work and I’m glad to be mostly caught up. For now. Glad I don’t do this for a living.  :P 

Don’t forget to get yourself a new iPhone/Galaxy case…..  

:P

— Got some new mugs & laptop & iPad skins available…..

This applies to journalism and photography across the board, of course, not just underwater & travel work. 

PS - I actually had the amazing luck to beat Mr. Bantin in a photo contest once, but I don’t - and can’t - take that as an indication of anything other than the judges’ bent that day; he’s certainly one of the greats out there. 

We do terrible things. 

That’s right folks, keep talking about deregulation and ‘guv’ment intrusion’ on industry……….

Did I do this one? I don’t think so…. Too many pics, not enough time to clear my head. Attending a funeral service tomorrow, so too many people doing too many things over too little time & space, but it’s family, so whaddya gonna do.   :P
Rhode Island, July 2011. (Or August? I suppose I could look at the data….)

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Jesus Christ, American law enforcement. Get your fucking shit together.

FOTOBLOG!….  I missed a few days… and a few more…. Anyway. 

A couple old bull shark shots from Fiji. Conditions - and ability - weren’t much back then, so I went for “stylized”….   :P

There are some people out there that still believe that animals are just dumb beasts, but the unlikely animal friendships I’ve gathered here will prove that they are capable of feeling love and compassion just like we are.

I might have to do a little bit of tweaking on a couple images, but iFone 6 cases are available. Get a new home for your new fone!
