photoswap 2011, a set on Flickr.

last month i hooked myself up with rhianne's photoswap. pretty self-explanatory. rhianne sends you and email with someones info and you take fotos and send the roll to your partner. your partner develops it and posts it on flickr.

last year was my first time signing up & i was STOKED!! but, my partner never came through for me. i sent her my roll and waited and waited and waited...never got shit. i even emailed her and asked if i sent her some money if she would send my roll back...nada! so i gave up on it. this year when rhianne posted about it, i was totally ON IT!!

my partner was liana & she's freaking awesome!! she's from NY and knows her way around cameras.  i got her roll yesterday and developed it today. i just finished uploading her fotos & ahhhh, i LOVE them.

..till next time ;]

art is beautiful..

 checked out the lawndale art center with my mister & our friend john a couple of days ago.  the plan was to hit smash burger up first, which was deliSH btw..and then check out the big show at the art center.  the last time i'd been there was last year for the dia de los muertos exhibit and sugar skull making class.  it's always a sweet visit cause the creativity in this place is wild. it's not your typical art that you'd find at a typical museum..and it's FREE!!

i should have taken D, but instead i took granny which only had two fotos left in her lol! not a big deal though, cause that roll was for my photo-swapping buddy in NY (i'll get into that in another post).  anyways, my friend john had his nikon with him and it takes fantastical fotos. here's a couple that i liked.

GONZO247 introducing mr. pickle

check out the rest of the fotos of our outing on his flickr here.
the lawndale art center has a HUGE wall that faces out to main street, which of course receives a shitload of traffic.  the center was kind enough to let daniel anguilu set up shop and paint the hell out of that wall.  we chatted a bit with him, mostly john cause he wanted me to take a picture of him on the machine.  it happened, but he was pretty surprised cause he wasn't expecting daniel to take him to the top haha!

daniel told us that he had more art not too far from where we were.  we jumped in our cars and headed that way. not only was there more art, but he had art on every wall of the building. creative and colorful is what i got out of it.  john took pictures of those too.
..till next time ;]
