I am here again, in a familiar place feeling something Ive felt before, wondering why its still here, why I didnt deal with it more fully before. But Im glad I have a second chance at it... and I know that if I need a third chance, I'll get it. I also know that if it comes up again, I'll recognize it sooner and deal with it more readily. This is growth. And, I am happy to be alive.

Featured Photographer

Elizabeth Fernandez
     Attending CUNY Hunter, this well rounded photographer has been all over. From the controversial city as Amsterdam, to lover's paradise Paris France. Nearly completed with her double major, Ms. Fernandez has eye for the perfect shot. She has an extraordinary ability to capture a vivid story within a photograph. Simple as capturing an umbrella between rain boots... Who would of thought of that? 
     I hear by grace you with some of her work. To see more you can visit her facebook albums here.

     Heres why I think this picture is awesome... at first i thought you were out doors and the green carpet was grass. this is a snapshot of the process of industriaization. demin was thee epitome of working class garb. Plastic is one of the major advances in the textile industry and astroturf the diplacement of grass or triumph of man over nature. its like a concise story of man as god. like industrial man sitting on the throne looking down at creation. looking down at a symbol of the corporation and a simple piece of technology that again shows mans triumph over nature. i think i would also argue for the feminization of mascuinity. i mean its deni in rain boots but the city workers orange hue.

im still staring at it.
