new mexico was such a treat. desert landscapes and pueblo lands that transport you to an era of authentic cowboys & indians. one that you didn’t think could exist in this day and age. but it does. mountain vistas, rolling clouds, hot springs and a breeze that blows just a hint of sacred. simply quite magical.

not so long ago i procured my photos with more love and embellishment of internal context or adventurous tales. but the ways of the world soon set in and time has run thin. photography is now a mainstream art available to the masses on the go and we no longer have time to ponder the meaning much of anything. just a tiny manifesto that land of pop was resurrected before the days of the instagram phenomenon. and may one day return to it’s original luster of those founding BK days.

stockholm, sweden. september twenty ten.

final selections and layout for the amsterdam showing @ coffeebar…

after some prompting from friends, land of pop had its first photo display last month at coffeebar, the hip urbany mountain, best coffee in the world locale in truckee, ca. in addition to a few LA photos snapped from the driver’s seat at various traffic light stops, selected snapshots from a 2 day bike ride through amsterdam made their way to high gloss vinyl prints adhered to 12×12 custom wood and aluminum mounts. the final work pieced together looks like this –>

Amsterdam Photo Show, Coffeebar, Autumn Rose

deep gratitude for all the awesome people that came out to be merry and support the opening 12.20.11, which included works from local artists Allison Smith, Autumn Rose, Jesse De Clercq, Grant Kaye and Seth Lightcap. photos will be on display for a couple of more weeks…so indulge in a custom art latte treat and check it out…

special thanks goes out to Forrest Huisman, Chris Willford & Shannon Whitehead for inspiration, James McLeod for photo coverage and Greg Buchheister (coffeebar owner) for making it all possible. fantastique!

time lapse in more ways than one. hello land of pop! hello new york! it’s been awhile…

New York Night Skyline

london calling…take two. landmark medley, including the london eye and major tube infatuation, zig zagging every which way across the gigantic city, taking all but one or two lines. highlights: undoubtedly the east end!!!, being a super duper tourist, pub fun with local bloke mr. jones and ending it all with a night at the bedford and a wild ride home, courtesy of erin penner & tony moore (original member of iron maiden & cutting crew…how is that even possible?). yes, we’re talking ‘i just died in your arms tonight’ acclaim. awesomeness. it’s only been 5 months since part one was posted…oops.

fresh starts.

the fresh start of 2011. or so the psyche thinks. san francisco is still a beautiful place.

i was finally able to wrap my head around the amsterdam segment of my trip…it’s only been 3 months. thick, thick brain mud is to blame. looking at these brings a certain wave of sadness; of how i want to return, of how i want to keep running, of how i want to journey on around the world and yet also the heartbreaking reality of having noone to share the adventure or memories with. a semi-saving grace could be the parallel wave of excitement that also creeps in from a mixture of accomplishment, lessons learned and eye opening experiences.

bikes, bikes and more bikes! amsterdam was also full of character. not what i thought it was going to be exactly. charming as it was, there was also a sense of sketchy amongst dutch safety, a sense of wholesome amongst whore, and a sense of crankiness amongst calm. with their own dry humor, it was funny to find out how amsterdammers are somewhat a culture of complaint. all in all, i felt an odd impression of peace. it was definitely cool.

epitome of fall.
