I hope that people start realizing how serious i am about my work.

I couldn't imagine someone contacting me telling me how inspirational i was to them to the point where they wanted me to be in their next book.I suppose some of the people who dismiss my messages, fail to ever get back to me after weeks or just flaking on me while i wait for hrs in the pouring rain just weren't meant for this at all.

I've been closer to finishing my timelapse video than the book and im only taking stills for the timelapse every other weekend!

and if your wondering, the video consists of 60,000 + High rez imges taken from all over Oakland.

here's a favorite ghetto bird image of mine taken around this time last year.
