I like to do a post on photos every now and then, since those who know me know I like to take photos. A lot of photos. So I trolled through my stuff and found many pics I have snapped over the years. Then I went to BrainyQuotes to find a nice quote to start my post. I saw this one from Carlos Santana, and I thought “Perfect, he grew up on the West Coast!”
And then I saw this one by Catherine Opie, and she made me feel bad.
“Catherine Opie who?”, you may ask, as I did. Well, she is a professor of photography at UCLA, had a show at the Guggenheim, etc, etc. She specializes in documentary photography, which I guess is not cliche. Probably it’s chic and important. But, however banal, lackluster, hackneyed, derivative, and trite it may be, I am forging ahead! Because who doesn’t like an awesome sunset photo, dammit! Besides Catherine Opie that is.
