On the edge shooting

way down there


The former Tart of the Arts aka Richard North and his assorted “personalities” recently posted about not having a fancy camera and having to save for one in order to get better photographs. Well, in an effort to encourage the Tart and everyone else thinking they’re stuck in a bog because they can’t afford high dollar digital camera toys I offer you the mentality of one photographer–Ken Rockwell. According to Rockwell the camera is not the most important part of the equation–it’s US and what  we do with whatever camera tool/toy we’ve got.  Rockwell says this better than moi so check out his absolutely no-nonsense thinking —> http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/notcamera.htm

Yes, ENCOURAGE your own creativity!

 Oh and as usual, I shot “way down there” with a Minolta x 700–yeah, that’s film. If you’re interested, Rockwell has a few words to say about my tool/toy of choice that might be of some interest.

Yep, this is from Scottsbluff, Nebraska.

crepes & eva’s energy-scapes on the liberty square

Below Above


Yes, this is another effort at shameless self promotion–and not so shameless promotion of some great crepe creators at Crepes on the Square in Liberty, Missouri.  For some food porn vice not from Yi-Ching in the Big Apple visit –> http://www.crepesonthesquare.com/ . I do adore  their generous banana & Nutella crepes–crispy please! But  head crepe creator Barclay claims their sweet Lemon Curds are the best. This depends on your taste for TART! index. I confess I’ve got a thing for warm gooey Nutella with bananas thrown  in for the healthy fruit justification for food vice indulgence.  Okay, now if you’re roaming through the Kansas City metro area and desire some very affordable yum yum for your tum tum good eats and a very friendly atmosphere where you can even hang out and play with your email or google directions to your next destination, then keep on driving eastward on 152 highway (aka Kansas St.), through its intersection with 291 hwy and on into and past the residential area until you’re on the historic Liberty Square. Believe me, you’ll know when you’ve reached the square. It’s a busy place but without the congested insanity of the strip mall shopping area west of 291 &  I 35. It’s considerably calmer traffic wise on the Square’s one way streets. I can’t vouch for the level of calm in the courthouse or Corbin theatre or even in Crepes on the Square. But I will vouch for the delicious crepes, soups, and sandwiches created fresh when you order them–and in plain sight–you can even watch from up top on the second floor.  Now for an added bonus you can even take a gander at a selection of my energy-scapes.  “Ley Lines”, “Nirvana”,  “She Creates”, “Swallows Wing”,  “Holy Ghost Descending” and others are hanging on that  funky mustard colored wall.  So wander on to the Libert Square to catch some cool relief from the midwest’s broiling pan with some “hot” crepes and check out eva’s energy-scapes.  Affordable deliclious food and Art in the same place–what more can you ask for? 

To read my Artist Statement, see “Wind Walking” and view more energy-scapes click on the sidebar image of “Void” under “energy-scapes”.  Enjoy. 

 Btw—Hmm, keep it clean if you care to post your ‘more’ desires (especially you, Yi-Ching, and your fellow dueler in food photo vices formerly known as The Tart of the Arts). 

       See, like I said, they’re friendly crepe-rs. Nothing to fear if you’ve never crepe-d before.    


All the young dudes a la Chefie …

Awards payback effort numero uno:

Okay, if you enjoy creating food art via  young English dude style then you ought to  visit the Tart of the Arts aka Chefie aka Kokot aka Kserverny at Kserverny’s kitchen culintary and beyond arts roadshow –>


Kserverny has no qualms about serving up videos of his original guitar melodies, videos of psycho chefs and homicidal red riding lawnmowers in addition to his explorations into poetry, photography and more traditional media of drawing and painting. He does it all with good humor and friendly conversation. Oh and yes, he is a real chef!

o!KoKot’s coming with dat big red mower and it ain’t lookin’ pretty for otto’s kitties

Oh me thinks da Chefie is after otto’s kitties and he’s making tracks for black hole cat’s litterbox of shame at dat club dey call ‘ottobiography’ .  gotta scram and warn otto and black kitty! yikes, da Chef’s closing in!
