Stardust

Shot Of The Day: May 23, 2017





QOTD:
Ziggy played for time,
jiving us that we were Voodoo
The kids were just crass,
He was the naz
With God given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar.

— David Bowie

Bombed Anyway

Shot Of The Day: May 19, 2017





QOTD:
They say this world is in a mess
What’s gonna happen next is anybody’s guess
Say this whole 3damn planet may blow sky-high one day
But I don’t worry, ’bout gettin’ bombed
No no I’m, usually bombed, anyway

This is one of my all time favourite shots. That’s me and my son in 1996 in Montreal. I was busy smoking a Rothman’s and my son was just being cute.

The Peoples Republic

Shot Of The Day: May 16, 2017





QOTD:
Ever strange the lives we lead
So detached from the things we need
Signs of greed in everyone
Instant eviction and the blood on a gun
Just when you think you’ve found it
Spinning world I want to spin around it

— New Order
