I highly recommend going to the website of Rick Loomis. This is a photographer who hasn't gotten nearly enough recognition.

His pictures of Burning Man are incredible. He has some amazing shots in there!

However, I would also like to direct people to one set of photos that have not been shown to the US public. Go to the 'Menu' and click on 'Projects' then 'New Battle.' These pictures might disturb you, so please do not click if you're not up for it. Yes, it's related to the war; but it's not photography from within the war zone, though Loomis is also a good war photographer. Basically, what I'm saying is, if you support the war and/or the President, you owe it to yourself to check out his 'New Battle' photoessay and think. That's all.

Beyond that, he's got a lot of amazing photos in there which, no matter what your political orientation, are simply fantastic.

First, woke up badly. I'm literally exhausted from these recurring dream images.

Second, saw Live Free or Die Hard today. It was pretty cool, definitely a spiritual successor to the first movie. Some of the compositing wasn't terribly good, and a lot of the computer tech made me wince. But overall it wasn't bad. It was fairly brainless action.

Third, saw a trailer for Lions for Lambs directed by and starring Robert Redford. I'm not sure if it's a polemic against the 'war on terrorism' or for it; either way, I think it might be an untoward 'escalation' in the war of ideas that's going on in this country.

Fourth, on the topic of politics, You all know by now what happened today. I am unsurprised but disappointed.

More later, maybe. Pax.

Excuse Me?

"They can have their votes of no-confidence but it's not going to make the determination about who serves in my government."
Excuse me? "My government?" No. Oh, no. No, no, no, sir. Frack, no. You have it all wrong.

Our government.
