The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Iconic and graffiti. These are shots from the other day. Here in Oaxaca, the graffiti comes and goes, so one has to shoot it while its hot. So these are all iconic images of Oaxaca, the knife-sharpener, the blind accordianist, the shoe shine boy, the man with the triangle, who you can hear from blocks away. I think he sells limonada. Also the hurdy gurdy man is there, but is already started to be covered up. I should add that the average hurdy gurdy man does not normally have an electric meter coming out of his back. He is the ever-ready bunny version, I guess.
