I never understood the pictures that people take of their own open bleeding wounds, otherwise I would be shooting my legs after this massive fall today carrying 4 big wooden panels (and all the photographic gear!) through the windy-slippery-wet fields to start a new series of photography.
Legs and arms are swollen and bleeding, but the camera-tripod-lenses are ok: I made myself mattress to them. Anyway, it was just a 2 meters fall on the rocks with the wooden panels falling over.
So I didn’t cry: I’m a grown up boy.

Once I’m spending sometime in the middle of nowhere I only have satellite connection paid per minute, so I often have some tabs opened to read them offline. Brain awareness, photography, art mags, astronomy, health, human rights, sociology, history, lost cultures, literature, philosophy, etc. Closing tabs after reading them or keeping some to check another links whenever I come back online, I often get confused with this trend of acronyms as if we’re talking about companies with their FAQ’s. In a Brains’ awareness page you can read about people who have NT, ADHD, ADD, BD, HFA, ASD, AS, etc according to the DSM, which labelled all the others as PDD-NOS. Anyway, it’s all about our CNS and our XX’s that you can learn in ABA. Then you change to the next tab and you read that people have HN1 or HIV or even MCD. Almost like if you landed in a webpage of drugs, in which people talk about their LSD, MXE or THC. Then you go to another page that is not talking about LGBT and you find out that people do lots of HDR and they got a DSLR or even an EOS with EF-S for HD. All this AD, or DC, not BC or AC. Because BRB doesn’t mean TTYL. And then, there are people who “laugh” in real saying LOL. OK, OW or WS would be dead by now. Without any PhD or even MA. The worst part is that is not only in US, but in EU too. Maybe it’s just a question of DOF. OMG, I don’t even remember my PIN when I’m in front of the LCD of my 4G and it’s almost PM: I must GO!
Enjoy your WK, GB.

B Shot by a Stranger: The New Loners (NSFW)
In our generation of screenagers, it seems that loneliness is taking an incredible role. People doesn’t smell each other anymore. They don’t touch each other. They barely know what a real hug means…
Now, who’s the next volunteer for this project? Are you a loner? if you’re a young male loner, no matter where you are in the world, let me know.
We are waiting for you now!
Do you want to be part of the B Shot by a Stranger project?
Send me a picture of yourself, with name, age and location!

I must confess that recieving emails starting with “Hi there” makes me “troubled” with existentialist geographic issues. I get several per day, and never got used to it.
I might need to change my morning waking up meeting with the mirror, and say “hi here” instead of wishing “Good morning Gon!”. So I get used to it while peeing and drinking my coffee.
Yes, I am that multi-tasking.
