Looking South

Chong Chong, Leo, and I went on a noontime walk yesterday… me walking Chong Chong and Chong Chong walking Leo.

This picture was taken as we crossed over Hui Xin Xi Jie, the street which our apartment complex is facing (you can see one of the towers directly to the left of Chong Chong’s head). The streets and avenues here can be massive… more on the scale of major freeways in California. Likewise, the pedestrian over-crossings can also be quite huge.

Love Hotel

In the immortal words of Miles Gregory, immaculately voiced by Gwen Dickey:

Love don’t live here anymore
Just emptiness and memories
Of what we had before you went away
Found another place to stay, another home

You abandoned me
Love don’t live here anymore
Just a vacancy, babe
Love don’t live here anymore

btw, if you somehow don’t get the reference (woe unto thee), checkout this link.

Published – precis

Well, folks, I’m now a published photographer. Chris Stecher, who is the publisher/editor of precis magazine, was kind enough to put “Wife and Child” on the cover of last month’s magazine, as well as dedicating five other pages of the magazine to my work. I’m also very grateful for his editorial comments about my work on the second page.

Thanks to my brother Aram for introducing me to Chris, and my mom for helping me to choose the Beijing Sky photographs that Chris alluded to in his editorial. And, although it should go without saying, thanks to my wife and our son.

I’m a bit late in blogging about the magazine since it took awhile for the kind folks at — the publishing platform which Chris uses — to dial back their pornography-bot and allow the photograph through without requiring age verification.

If you are so inclined, please show your support for the magazine by clicking-on the above photograph, and reading the publication. (My brother Aram also has a piece in it.)

btw, looks like there’s too much “skin” showing for Chris to do a paid-blast on Facebook.
