  • “ Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, and bodies of water, light and shadows. Selects only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) with be authentic.
    Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery-celebrate it if you feel like. In any case, remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from-it’s where you take them to.”

    -Jim Jarmusch

    Why not is the question?

Plaza Reopens

The Plaza Hotel and Casino recently just reopened in downtown Las Vegas.  This place had definitely seen better days, but the 30 million dollar renovation (and the cheap furnishing from the now defunct Fontainebleau)  sure cleaned it up nice.  I have photographed the Plaza many times and watched it go from an old beat up casino to an icon Vegas can be proud of.  This first picture is  HDR (7 different exposures merged together).

Not looking too hot before, but I am digging the greens.
