The Train Ride

April 12th, 2010

At one point I was on the train to Brussels from Paris. The young man seated across from me wrapped up his jacket to use as a makeshift pillow, leaned against the window and promptly fell asleep. The image of both him and his mirror double propping up the window between their foreheads as the beautiful French countryside zipped by was too much. I had to make the picture.

More pictures coming soon!

Playing with Knives

July 28th, 2009

This past weekend, I decided to fool around with some random stuff at home and see what comes out…

I took this beautiful knife I bought from a gem of a store called We Be Knives that I unexpectedly came across in Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco. I mean, who’d have thought it? A great, quality knife shop on Pier 39 – Tourist Central?

The knife’s a joy to behold and handle – it’s a beautiful, handcrafted Sakura KB-202 field knife made by Kanetsune in Seki City, Japan. The handle (and sheath) are wrapped in cherry tree skin, hence the name – Sakura, which I understand means Cherry Tree. The damascus blade is made of 15 layers of blue steel. Stunning stuff.

I used the knife to cut up a large carboard box to make a makeshift lightbox, lit it through a large napkin, brought along a mirror for the party and introduced the victims, an orange and a pepper, to the knife. Here are some of the results:
