Joe Prints

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Our longtime friend Matt Brennan has put together a great blog remembering our mutual friend from childhood, Joe Cafferelli. Joe, who died a few years ago, was a photographer, motocrosser, carpet-layer, recovery-guy, and a good friend+family man. He left a long trail of stories and legends. When Joe was still around he’d talked with Matt about putting their images and words together. Now Matt has done so, and brilliantly.

This is a satellite picture of the Richat Structure, also known as the Eye of the Sahara, located in the Sahara desert of west – central Mauritania near Ouadane. Stopped our scrolling dead in it’s tracks, really beautiful.

Check out this collection of images taken with super powerful microscopes. So lovely and kinda spooky. Reminds me of all we can’t perceive. Despite our delusions otherwise.

Return to Bobby Orr

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Bobby Orr was a hero in my house. There he is flying through the air after winning the Stanley Cup. My dad was a hockey player himself. Good enough to get a scholarship to Boston College. My Canadian grandfather would flood their backyard in Quincy. They’d skate all winter. When I was little we’d go skate on the pond down the street. I’d bust with pride at how good he was. Boston Bruins fans are due. So go ahead boys!

But let’s return to Bobby Orr -
The Kid from Parry Sound -
The big bad Bruin is Number Four,
The toast of Boston town.

Robert Frank’s take on goodbyes. That image is straight brutal. And lovely, ugly, poignant and irreverent. Like this life.

Sista Girls

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Stumbled upon the very cool site: JCP Studios in Australia. Tons of beautiful and stirring images. These photos by Bindi Cole made me look twice. These are from a series she took on the Tiwi Islands of the very small and incredibly vibrant trans-gender community. They’re called Sista Girls.

Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley

Friday, January 21st, 2011

“Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated., When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind.” Wilson A. Bentley

(To read and reread when the piles of snow have us on our knees in Boston.)
