the drake


  1. thanks for your comment! did you go to their concert as well?
    i just saw i sometimes visit your bog, but i never commented!
    i like this pic... did you take it while driving? (i very much like pictures while driving... or rather, im just in the passenger's seat... )

  2. Nice sensation. To drive by night, calm music...

  3. My UNIQUELY styled Wallpapers. During some ten years, I have developed an extremely complex and unimitable technique that should carry some interest of anyone pursuing a serious artistic ambition and expertise. And it's quantity as well: by now close to 5 000 wallpapers, all created by me. Why not tune in on my rapidly growing art blog? Its Copyright Anyone, as it SHOULD be for this genre!

    In addition, on the long blogroll you may readily follow about 150 of the VERY BEST ART BLOGS in the world - and, indeed, if your own art blog is good enough, I will certainly add it, really boostin' it.

    I run Deviant Art in parallell:

    And I write poetry in several languages:


    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    Is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    Single Swingle


    Casualidad sopla la sangre
    de alguno señor desconocido
    durante los pocos restantes
    momentos del resplandor de faroles

    que se vislumbran tras el follaje
    flameando de las obsesiónes
    igual efimero como gotas
    del cinzano de la soledad –

    En aquel tiempo me levanta
    dentro uno incidente avejentado
    que en seguida palidece
    al camouflaje de abstraccion;

    chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
    ojos significan aún; con todo
    el sueño que hube evacuado
    tu escudriñas nuevamente.

    My Spanish poetry!



    Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

    Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

    À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.



    Das Leben dergleichen Halbfaßung
    der Welt wahr immer nicht wahr,
    nicht wahr? Die fristlos Entlaßung
    am Ende wird kaum wunderbar.

    So laßen uns Menschlingen viele
    besonders besonnene zum
    Zeitweilegem Zeiten als Ziele
    des Lebens halbfaßen darum.

    We need a new analysis of probability. My hypothesis is that disorder is as constant as energy, since increasing material disorder, entropy, is counterbalanced by increasing structural regularity, symmetry. I tell you the Law of Entropy and the Law of Symmetry, ruling approximatively equal universal validity derive through bifurcation of the still more basic Law of Probability, that is, math, and rather simple math at that. Can you dig this?

    And: reciprocity. You do me a favor promoting your blog on mine!

  4. hi CaT, no i just have their cd i love her voice! and about driving while shooting, i often take photos with my phone but it has to be at a traffic light or if the going is slow enough (like if there is a blizzard or something ha HA) so i like when i am the passenger like in this one :)

    hi Cesc thanks, me too love the night driving specially

    kraxpelax, thanks v. much for following

  5. Once again great shot. Love the way it takes you into it.

  6. This has been a shot I have wanted to take for a while...but I need a "partner in crime" to drive while I snap away and get a clean shot thru the windshield. I like you take on it very much!

  7. Such a classic Chicago urban scene and beautifully executed. I stayed at the Drake once many years ago. I had some business in Chicago and there was one of those huge trade shows at McCormick Place. Called hotel after hotel (pre-Internet) and couldn't find a thing other than the D. Pretty expensive, tiny room with a view of the air shaft.

    When we're in Chicago in April, we're staying at the cool little inn Longman & Eagle developed above the restaurant in Logan Square. It's about a block from Andy's apartment.

  8. thanks Luis, hi Ken, thanks very much- i like your site very much-so nice to see chicago through your camera eye and good luck with the hunt for a willing driver :) hi Bob, ah nice memories soon to come from your next visit...
