371. | @timriot making photoshop magic. | The visible man, in 3d. | In front of the weird installation in the window at Madrone.

1. Whenever I walk by this gate in my neighborhood, I always notice how this 7 looks like a scythe.
2. This photo was run through so many apps I can’t even remember them all. First, a hipstamatic double exposure, then lots of Gelo gels, through decim8 and back again, add bokeh, etc. The photo is actually of Tim working on some truly epic stuff for Adobe. I’ll update you on that when it comes out to the public (I’m so proud of him!).
3. This is a weird one. This gallery down the street has these weird windows with spiral grating on them, but they wedged one half of a Visible Man doll between the grate and the window, so when the lights are on the shadow is all weird. Then I just added some 3d effect.
4. There’s a giant light up installation in the window of Madrone- which actually makes a pretty great diffused light for photos.
I might go back with a more serious camera and a crazy outfit before they take it down.


No way back. | One way to sunset. | Aerialist Electric Blue’s shadow. | Lincoln’s face on all the ads.

5. People have been wheatpasting all over the burnt out Walgreens since they boarded it up, and they’ve been shoddily painting over them the whole time. I liked this tiger and also the guy behind him.
6. Sutro Tower forevs.
7. I went to the Soviet Space themed Hubba Hubba show to see my ladyfriend do her tribute to Laika the space dog. This aerialist was awesome, but I spent almost as much time watching her shadow as I did her. It just looked so awesome against those curtains!
8. I mistakenly took this Lincoln head for street art. Apparently this is the actual Ad. I guess I was just calibrated for Lincoln fandom after the vampire hunter and Daniel Day Louis bit.


Let’s take just a moment about Because it’s awesome, and you should use it. I’m Star StGermain on there, since the period in my last name is invalid punctuation or something. :/ Anyway- if nobody objects, I’m going to put my little vine videos in these posts too, cool?
