What dreams may publish

This Sunday former DC Metblog author Robert Walton is having a release event for his self-published book, twelve dreams: a transcription which contains some short stories and dream transcriptions.

Robert was on his way out when I was on my way in so we’ve never had the chance to meet, but I’ve been getting his sporadic email updates on his artistic progress, including his Mount Pleasant Project. It’s something a number of you might be very interested in, given the amount of heat generated by a recent post on Mount Pleasant getting a Ruby Tuesday’s.

I don’t love all his work – the soft-focus of ‘morning bridge‘ grates on me, probably as a result of my own history as a photographer who was often criticized by my cohorts for images that seemed “so commercial.” But I love many of the shots in the Mount Pleasant project, particularly “Hanging out at the 7-Eleven” and this shot from inside the Raven. I’m hopeful that he’ll put prints from ‘red chair‘ up for sale so I can get one…

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
