Today I shot downtown for the Merchandise Mart. You’re a better person than I if you knew who Barbara Barry was before you saw these images:
I’m off for a shoot downtown today. I’m hoping all kinds of havoc will be wreaked while I’m gone on this Happy Humpday Blasphemy Day.
While I’m shooting people, I’d like to know: What’s your favorite blasphemy? If you could think of one thing that would offend you, what would it be?
Here are some other shots I grabbed while around Cloud Gate.
I had a family portrait shoot on Saturday. Shooting groups are difficult, because there are so many personality dynamics to tackle. These are some of the shots the family won’t see, but I thought were interesting.
I knew you were curious about what my Ps looked like. Here they are near Chicago’s “Cloud Gate” (aka the Bean*).
*FWIW, I find it a little lacking that people call a piece of art by a moniker rather than its name. As an artist, I would want people to respect the name I gave the art. So when I can, I encourage people to refer to Cloud Gate as Cloud Gate. Not the “Bean”.
172 communication majors at the University of Quebec @ Montreal strung together this epic single-take lipdub of the Black Eyed Peas’ hit single “I Gotta Feeling” soup-to-nuts in all of two hours.
The kid or kids who directed this bit probably have a nice long career ahead of him/her/them.
It’s very well done for being what it says it is.

I want to do a post on these two wiki articles about the names of god and the word and derivation the word “satan“. I think they are fine reads for people who have an inkling of interest in history, etymologies, and the like.
I haven’t time to hack out my thoughts, but I wanted to put it up. I think the link for “god” puts you at “shaddai” but you can scroll back up for other information.
