Ewa (pronounced AyyyVa like Eva) and Mike.
The young married couple. Love these two for always staying true. I met these 2 homies, cronies, buddies or whatever name you call your friends in college. Ewa the nice polish girl that she is was intimidating at first. I mean come on a polish girl in america with the heavy accent. How are you not to suspect some kind of organized crime in her? Either way my stereotypical thoughts were thrown out the door when I finally hung out with this friend. She’s cool calm and collected. Mike the rager from ohio. Pretty cool dude even though when he’s drunk words just fly out of his mouth without any kind of thought or sorrow towards whatever he’s talking about. Makes for an interesting and hilarious night. Theres acquaintances and then theres those friends that you’ll want to keep around and see them strive and be well. These 2 are just the few in the circle which I hope I stay close to for a long time. Long live Ewa and Mike!

I have two places I call home. Paterson, NJ and Florida. I just live and work in LA. Getting to the point, after 3 whole years I went back home to Paterson. Granted I dont love it there. I do love the people around me when I’m there. This person, Ralmy the little shit head that she is, is my cousin. Her kindness and loving tendencies towards her little brother makes me want to be the person I havent been to mine. I see pictures of both of them all the time and it makes for a little soft spot in me. I look at people and look at how they can make me better by what they do. It inspires me to be who I am and do what I do. I live 2,200 miles away from family and the only way I get to see them most of the time is either by photos or facetime. So when I left I packed all my cameras and tried taking pictures of everyone of them to cherish what I dont get to see everyday. However I didnt get to take pictures of everyone because my shyness drives me away from it. I’ve missed out on a lot, 3 years is a lot of time to be away from family. People change, kids grow and shit happens. Sad part about the whole trip was that I didn’t get to see everyone I wanted to.
On a happier note, I love this photo for everything that it is. The times in the middle of the night are what brought this picture to life. The parents that made this child must of had some beautiful genes but I still think she’s ugly lol. HA! Love my cousin Ralmy. Love my family. Love my siblings. Love everyone.

MY FIRST POST!
I was thinking on how revamp my blogging but in reality all I was doing was reblogging and doing nothing with my previous blogs. With some inspiration from some close friends(fistfulloffilm.tumblr.com, meddlesomfilms.tumblr.com). I decided I needed to start over again and actually keep up with the blog. To both those guys, Thank You. Your images are what made this happen and keep me going creatively.
After a year and 2 months in Los Angeles I was beginning to go a little crazy in the head. I love LA but you have to get away from time to time. My brother bought me a ticket back home to celebrate a baby shower for another brother of mine who’s about to have TWINS. Either way I took a break from LA and one day while being back east I decided to take a trip to the big city all by my lonesome self. New York is very special. Lots of characters with every turn of the head. While being lost and trying to find my way around I found this Brewery. I love beer but the sad part about it, I didn’t step foot in the door. I wanted to remind myself when I come back I will visit this place and taste the beverage that I enjoy the most BEER! Because its the “manly” thing to do.
