Venice, May 2014 – 56
how to advertise your business
Image by Ed Yourdon
This is one of several photos I took during a relatively brief "private gondola" ride that we took one morning, for a somewhat outrageous price.


I’ve been to Venice once or twice for brief business trips during my life, which had the same characteristics as the business trips I described in a separate Flickr album about Paris — i.e., they basically involve flying into a busy airport at night, taking a taxi to a generic business-traveler’s hotel (a Hilton in Venice looks just like a Hilton in Cairo,except perhaps for the canal outside the main entrance), and then spending several days working in the hotel (if the purpose of the trip was a seminar or computer conference), or at a client’s office (also “generic” in most cases — you can’t even tell what floor you’re on when you get off the elevator, because every floor of “open office” layouts is the same). The trip usually ends in the late afternoon or evening of the final day, with a mad dash back to the airport to catch the last plane home to NYC. Thus, a business trip to Venice is almost indistinguishable from a business trip to Omaha. Or Albany. Or Tokyo.

But Venice is different from almost any other place in the world, and I’ve had a couple of vacation trips to experience that side of the city. But it’s been a long, long time: the first such visit was back in 1976 (which you can see here on Flickr), and the second visit was in 1983 (pictures of which do exist on Flickr, but have been restricted to family-only access, since they consist mostly of boring pictures of drooling babies and kids sticking their collective tongues out at me).

Thirty years is a long time between visits … but for a city like Venice, I doubt that very much has changed. Well, perhaps there wasn’t a McDonald’s outlet in Venice when I first came here (and I did photograph one such outlet on this current visit, which you’ll find in this album), and you can certainly guarantee that people weren’t walking around with cellphones and smartphones the way they are today. And while the tourists typically did have cameras back in the good-old-days, they were typically modest little “Instamatic” film-based gadgets, rather than the big, garish, DSLR cameras that everyone now seems to carry around with them, complete with advertising logos all over the camera-straps and bodies to remind you that they, too, can afford to buy an expensive Canon or Nikon gadget that they really don’t know how to use properly. (Sorry, I got carried away there …)

But the buildings, and the people, and the canals, and the gondolas … all of that is the same. And that’s what I’ve tried to capture in this set of photos. The tourist crowds are now so thick (even in May!) that I didn’t even bother going to the square at San Marco, and I didn’t bother taking any photos from the Rialto bridge over the Grand Canal; but you will see some photos of tourists in this album, along with photos of the local people who are still here …

I don’t expect to come back to Venice again in the next year or two … but if it turns out to be 20 or 30 years before my next return, I suspect it will all look pretty much exactly the same as it did on this trip, and in 1983, and when I first saw it in 1976.

Renaissance et Réforme sont, à la fois, des événements historiques, et des appellations que les historiens ont donné à ces événements. Les événements historiques sont des faits. Les appellations que leur donnent les historiens sont des interprétations de ces faits, déformées, orientées par les idéologies existant à la période à laquelle vivent les historiens.
Il faut distinguer les deux : les faits d’une part, et d’autre part leur appellation, le nom qui leur est attribué : Moyen Age, Renaissance, Temps Modernes, Réforme, Ancien Régime, Lumières, Révolution….

1° La Renaissance est un événement idéologique, culturel.
La Renaissance n’est pas un événement politique
La Renaissance n’est pas un événement économique
La Renaissance n’est pas un événement scientifique ou technique.
Idéologiquement, culturellement, la Renaissance est une redécouverte de certains idéaux de l’Antiquité Gréco-Romaine, et parallèlement, un relatif recul de l’influence des valeurs catholiques.
Cet événement concerne seulement une petite élite, intellectuelle et sociale. Le Renaissance ne concerne pas les peuples. La société européenne du temps n’en est aucunement transformée dans ses manières de vivre. Cet événement est très lent, il se déroule sur deux siècles : 15è et 16è.
Tels sont les faits.
L’appellation de "Renaissance" n’est pas neutre du tout. Elle est très positive, très laudative. Elle a été choisie pour ce motif. C’est une falsification idéologique, volontaire, des faits historiques par l’historiographie. La Renaissance est présentée comme un événement global, merveilleux, un "renouveau", profondément ressenti en Europe. Une sortie des "Âges sombres", de la barbarie et de l’obscurantisme, une fin du "Moyen Age".
"Renaissance" s’oppose à "Moyen Age", comme le beau temps s’oppose au mauvais temps !
Non, tout ceci est faux, sauf les états d’âmes de quelques lettrés du temps, vivant en bibliothèques, magnifiés par les historiens idéologues des siècles ultérieurs !

La vraie Renaissance de l’Europe, politique, sociale, économique, technique, s’est produite aux environs de l’an 1000, quand l’Europe commence à se relever de l’effondrement général de civilisation qui est résulté des invasions germaniques, slaves, asiatiques, musulmanes, scandinaves, commencées vers 400 voire vers 250.
Vers l’an 1000 il a existé, réellement, dans les faits une Renaissance de l’Europe, un Renouveau dans tous les domaines, qui est même climatique, et qui dure jusqu’à la grande peste (1348).
Ce Renouveau se produit à une époque où l’Europe est totalement dominée par les valeurs catholiques et orthodoxes.
Mais ces faits déplaisent à certaines idéologies toujours puissantes et actives en Occident. Les idéologues changent les faits, et inventent une "Renaissance" au 16è siècle.
Alors que la Renaissance n’a absolument rien changé à la vie des peuples européens.
La Renaissance est un événement purement culturel, artistique, très important certes, mais qui a concerné seulement une toute petite élite.
Ce pourquoi le nom d”Humanisme est la seule appellation correcte, c’est à dire qui correspond exactement aux faits, non déformés par les idéologies du présent.

2° La Réforme est un événement idéologique, culturel, important, comme la Renaissance. Mais la Réforme est, aussi et surtout, un événement politique.
La Réforme n’a pas de causes ou conséquences, directement, économiques, scientifiques ou techniques.
Sauf les ravages causées par les guerres de religion, surtout en France et en Allemagne.
Idéologiquement la Réforme est une remise en cause très profonde du catholicisme, un retour à l’Ancien Testament.
Les Evangiles n’ont jamais proclamé "Enrichissez vous".
Les paraboles du Christ insistent au contraire sur la damnation du riche. Alors que les pauvres seront sauvés, par cela même qu’ils sont pauvres.
L’Ancien Testament est à l’opposé : Il n’existe aucune condamnation de la richesse matérielle dans l’Ancien Testament. La seule règle impérative est la confiance en Dieu et le respect de ses commandements (Job).
Le Protestantisme adopte cette vision judaïque du monde et de l’homme..
Autre rapprochement entre le judaïsme et le protestantisme, surtout de tendances calvinistes et ses dérivés plus ou moins lointains : l’aniconisme. Le refus de la représentation imagée de Dieu, et plus généralement de toute figuration religieuse, hormis le Christ en croix. Les conséquences dans les arts, notamment la peinture, sont évidemment très importantes.
Du point de vue culturel et idéologique, la rupture avec les valeurs catholiques et orthodoxes est infiniment plus évidente à la Réforme qu’à la "Renaissance". D’ailleurs les Papes avaient été des acteurs très importants de la Renaissance.
Autre différence : La société issue de la Réforme ne s’intéresse pas à l’Antiquité grecque et romaine.. La peinture européenne, dans les Pays Bas du Nord au siècle d’Or, en est la démonstration. Les thèmes mythologiques et ceux tirés de l’histoire grecque ou romaine disparaissent de l’art, exactement comme les thèmes religieux.
L’explication de cette rupture est simple : En Europe elle suit la frontière de l’expansion romaine. La Réforme c’est une revanche de l’Europe du Nord, non colonisée par les Romains. C’est l’aspect on dira "nationaliste" de la Réforme.

La Réforme est un important événement politique : Ses motivations ne sont pas seulement idéologiques et culturelles. A la Réforme il est essentiellement question d’Argent et de Pouvoir.
Le problème, le plus important, pour les élites, Rois, Princes, Evêques, Abbés, c’est de s’emparer des biens de l’Eglise, avec toutes les conséquences sur le pouvoir politique et économique.
Quand l’évêque proclame qu’il devient protestant, il se fait aussi duc. L’évêque ou l’abbé, devient propriétaire des biens du diocèse ou du monastère, et les transmet à ses héritiers. Quant aux rois et aux princes ils agrandissent aisément leurs domaines. Quelle aubaine cette religion nouvelle pour les élites !!!
Grâce au protestantisme encore, les grands bourgeois des villes, peuvent acheter les terres d’église, mises dans le commerce, alors qu’avec le catholicisme toutes ces terres formaient une espèce d’enclave hors du commerce. Quelle chance encore !!!
C’est l’explication réaliste, réelle et principale, de la Réforme et de son succès, et de ses terribles guerres civiles et étrangères. Les idéologies sont des habillages qui ne font qu’activer et justifier les haines et les guerres. Comme toujours.
La Réforme est bien évidemment provoquée par les élites, comme la Renaissance. Mais contrairement à la Renaissance, elle concerne très directement les peuples, absolument malgré eux. Les peuples doivent adopter, qu’ils le veulent ou non, la religion de leurs gouvernants.
La Réforme, contrairement à la Renaissance, est un événement relativement court dans le temps : Il s’inscrit essentiellement entre deux dates : 1517 publication des 95 thèses de Luther, et 1579 date de la proclamation de l’indépendance des Pays Bas du Nord. On peut aller jusqu’en 1648, quand l’Espagne reconnaît cette indépendance. C’est la fin de la Guerre de Trente Ans.

L’appellation "Réforme", contrairement à celle de "Renaissance", est presque neutre. Elle globalement plutôt positive dans l’idéologie européenne et occidentale, mais cette appellation n’est pas une falsification aussi évidente des faits que celle de "Renaissance". A condition de ne pas confondre Réforme et Progrès, ce que certains idéologues font systématiquement, on peut l’appeler Réforme, puisque le mouvement s’oppose effectivement au pouvoir catholique en place et demande la réformation de ses principes et de ses actions.


Renaissance and Reformation are, in both, historical events, and designations that historians have given to these events. Historical events are facts. The designations assigned by the historians are interpretations of these facts, distorted, guided by the existing ideologies in the period to which historians live.
We must distinguish between the two: the facts, on the one hand, and secondly, their names, the name given to them: the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Modern Times, Reform, Old Regime, Enlightenment, Revolution ….

1. The Renaissance is an event, ideological, cultural.
Renaissance is not a political event
Renaissance is not an economic event
Renaissance is not a scientific or technical event.
Ideologically, culturally, the Renaissance is a rediscovery of some ideals of of the Antiquity Greco-Roman, and in parallel, a relative decline of the influence of Catholic values.
This event concerns only a small elite, intellectual and social. The Renaissance does not concern the peoples. European society of the time is not changed in his manner of living. This event is very slow, it takes place over two centuries 15th and 16th.
These are the facts.

The appellation of "Renaissance" is not neutral at all. It is very positive, very laudatory. She was chosen for that reason. It is an ideological falsification, deliberate, of historical facts by historiography. The Renaissance is presented as a global event, wonderful, "renewal", deeply felt in Europe. An output of the "dark ages" of barbarism and obscurantism, an end of the "Middle Ages".
The "Renaissance" is opposed to the "Middle Ages" as good weather is opposed to bad weather!
No, all this is false, except the moods of some scholars of the time, living in libraries, magnified by the ideologues historians of later centuries!
In practice the true Renaissance of Europe, political, social, economic, technical, has occurred around the year 1000, when Europe begins to recover from the general collapse of civilization that is resulted from the invasions, Germanic, Slavic, Asian, Muslim, Scandinavian, begun to 400 and even to 250.
Around the year 1000 it has existed, in fact, a Renaissance of Europe, a revival in all areas, which is same in climate, and lasts until the Great Plague (1348).
This Renewal occurs at a time when Europe is totally dominated by Catholics and Orthodox values.
But these facts are displeasing to certain ideologies, still powerful and active in the West currently. The ideologues change the facts, and invent a "Renaissance" in the 16th century.
While the Renaissance has absolutely changed nothing in the life of the peoples of Europe.
The Renaissance was a purely cultural event, artistic, very important indeed, but that concerned only a tiny elite.
This why the name of Humanism is the only correct term, ie which corresponds exactly to the facts, not distorted by ideologies of the present.

2. The Reformation is an ideological event, cultural, important like the Renaissance. But the Reformation is also, and above all, a political event.
The Reform has no causes or consequences, direct, economic, scientific or technical.
Except the devastation caused by the wars of religion, especially in France and Germany.
Ideologically the Reform is a profound questionning of Catholicism and Orthodoxism, a return to the Old Testament.
The Gospels, never proclaimed : "become an wealthy"
The parables of Christ insist instead on the damnation of the rich. While the poor will be saved, for the very reason that they are poor.
The Old Testament is the opposite: There is no condemnation of material wealth in the Old Testament. The only mandatory rule is trust in God and respect His commandments (Job).
Protestantism adopts the Judaic vision of the world and of the human.
Another rapprochement between Judaism and Protestantism, especially of Calvinist tendencies and its more or less distant derivatives: The aniconism. The rejection of the pictorial representation of God, and more generally of all religious figuration, except Christ on the cross. The consequences in the arts, especially painting, are obviously very important.
Of the cultural and ideological, point of view, the break with the Catholic and Orthodox values is infinitely more obvious to the Reformation that at the "Renaissance." The Popes were very important actors of the Renaissance.
Another difference: The company resulting from the Reformation is not interested in Greek and Roman antiquity . The European painting in the Netherlands from the North in the Golden Age, is the proof. The Mythological themes and those derived from the Greek or Roman history disappear from art , just as the religious subjects.
The explanation for this break is simple: In Europe it follows the border of the Roman expansion. Reform is a revenge of the Northern Europe, not colonized by the Romans. This is the aspect we will say "nationalist" of the Reformation.
The Reform is an important political event: His motives are not only ideological and cultural. At the Reformation, the most important is the Money and Power.
The problem, most importantly, for the elites, Kings, Princes, Bishops, Abbots, is to take possession of church property, with all the consequences on the political and economic power.
When the bishop proclaims that he became a Protestant, he is also Duke. The bishop or the priest, becomes owner of the assets of the diocese or monastery, and transmits it to his heirs. As for the kings and princes, they easily expand their domains. What a boon this new religion for the elite !!!
Thanks again to Protestantism, the great bourgeois of the cities, can buy the church lands, placed on the market, whereas with Catholicism all these lands formed a sort of enclave out of the trade. How lucky again !!!
This is the realistic explanation, real and principal, of the Reform and its success, and its terrible civil and foreign wars. Ideologies are skins, that activate and justify hatred and wars. . Like always.
The Reform is obviously caused by the elites as the Renaissance. But unlike the Renaissance, it relates very directly the people, absolutely despite them. Peoples must adopt, whether they want it or not, the religion of their rulers.
The Reformation, unlike the Renaissance, is a relatively short event in time: It basically falls between two dates: 1517 publication of 95 theses of Luther, 1579 and the date of the proclamation of independence of Netherlands North. We can go until 1648, when the Spain recognized this independence. It’s the end of the Thirty Years War.
The name "Reform", unlike the name "Renaissance", is almost neutral. It is generally rather positive in the European and Western ideology, but that designation is not an obvious falsification of facts as that the "Renaissance". A condition not to confuse Reform and Progress, which some ideologues are systematically, we can call it Reform, because the movement is actually opposed to Catholic power up and demand the reformation of its principles and its actions.

I often take for granted the ease the working relationship is between Alexandra Rodionova and I. These pictures are a direct result of that comradery. If you where an onlooker on a shoot with Alex and I you would wonder why we hardly talk when we’re right in the middle of taking pictures. Well, we don’t need to communication, "stand this way, look that way, etc". We know each others every move. Thus is the benefit of working with a muse.
Alas, these days must come to an end. After 5 years of working together Alex is going her own way. So all I have now are there archived photo shoots to share. I’m sure once in awhile we’ll team up again…
…in the mean time I guess I’m in the market for a new muse!

Troy N.Y. – Mercury Grand Marquis 01
market share
Image by Daniel Mennerich
The Mercury Grand Marquis was a full-size rear-wheel drive luxury sedan that was sold by the Lincoln-Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company; the Grand Marquis was the flagship of the Mercury lineup. The nameplate had been in use since 1975 as the premium trim level of the Mercury Marquis; the Grand Marquis became a distinct model in 1983. The car was essentially Mercury’s twin of the Ford Crown Victoria with which it shared the Panther platform along with the Lincoln Town Car. After the discontinuation of the Crown Victoria at the end of the 2007 model year, the Grand Marquis had largely taken its place as the entry-level Panther-platform model.

The Grand Marquis was manufactured at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant in Southwold, Ontario, Canada though it was also produced from 1983 to 1985 at Ford’s St. Louis, Missouri facility. With the discontinuation of the Mercury brand, the Grand Marquis ended retail production in October 2010 while production for fleet sales continued until January 2011. The last Grand Marquis, which was also the last Mercury ever produced, rolled off the assembly line on January 4, 2011.

For 2006, Mercury gave the fourth-generation Grand Marquis a facelift. From the rear, the trunk panel between the taillights was changed from red to gray. From the front, the changes became more substantial. In an effort to look like the 1988–1991 models, the rounded grilles that had been used since 1992 were replaced with a rectangular one. Fog lights became a first-time option.

Interior changes included a new instrument cluster, which featured the addition of a tachometer and digital odometer/tripmeter. The mast antenna on the right rear fender was integrated back into the rear window and new wheel designs were made available. This was the first year for the 4R75E transmission.

In 2007, the "Palm Beach" trim package became an option for LS models; it consisted primarily of special upholstery and badging. On all models, flex-fuel capability (E85) was added. Other new options included a conventional spare tire and an auto dimming rear view mirror.

For 2008, the Handling and Performance Package as well as the 5-passenger front bucket-seat option were both discontinued; both were similar to the Crown Victoria’s LX Premium Sport and Handling Package. These were the only post-1992 Grand Marquis variants produced for North America to be equipped with dual exhaust.

The Ford Crown Victoria moved exclusively to fleet sales beginning with the 2008 model year, leaving the Grand Marquis with no distinct competition (in terms of price). In Canada, the Grand Marquis (a Ford since 1999) was replaced in retail markets by the Fifth-generation Ford Taurus (formerly the Ford Five Hundred).

For 2009, the base GS trim level was dropped from the lineup; leaving 2 variants, LS Fleet and LS Retail. The LS Fleet was available for fleet purchase only in Canada and the United States, and the LS Retail was available on dealer special orders only in the United States. Also, Lincoln-Mercury dealers in the United States have a "No stock" rule in effect for the Grand Marquis, as incentives as high as 00 were becoming a requirement to remove them from dealer lots, usually after several months.[citation needed] A change made to the Grand Marquis due to federal legislation was the standardization of side-impact airbags and the addition of recessed window switches. 2010 marked the 35th year of Grand Marquis production, overtaking the Cougar as the longest-produced Mercury. Due to a government mandate, the VIN designations were changed for 2010, replacing the seventh character with a letter instead of a number. The Grand Marquis LS now carried an M7F designation, whilst the export-only GS carried an M7E designation. As the Mercury brand was phased out, a short run of 2011 Grand Marquis models were produced, with retail production ending in September; the last fleet model was produced in January, becoming the last new Mercury-brand vehicle made by Ford.

Sweet sweet galaxy is a unique installation depicting an infinite psychedelic landscape. An amalgamation of numerous materials including coloured sugar, fine sand, cake decorations, origami, found objects, LED lights and sound, this colourful sensory kingdom will be constructed directly in the gallery space in early January.

The soundscape, created in collaboration with Melbourne-based John Kassab, adds another layer of immersion to the audience experience and sense of being transported to a faraway or imagined place. Whilst the soundscape adds to the narrative of the imagined landscape, interpreting the sounds with sugar has been central to Pip & Pop’s process when working with John.

The sugar used in this exhibition has been kindly donated by Silverspoon. As the sole producers of homegrown British sugar the company supports 1200 East Anglian beet farmers. According to Dan Gough of Silverspoon: "the sugar used in this exhibition was grown an average of 30 miles away from the gallery".

View of the production line at Wright’s Biscuits Factory, South Shields as biscuit mixture passes through the ovens.

Wright’s Biscuits was a well known company in South Shields, South Tyneside. Set up as a maker of biscuits, they started out by supplying their stock to ships in 1790, but after a fall in demand, Wright’s turned to making more up-market biscuits. Wright’s Biscuit factory closed in 1973.

Turner’s was established in Newcastle upon Tyne in the early 1900s. It was originally a chemists shop but in 1938 become a photographic dealer. Turners went on to become a prominent photographic and video production company in the North East of England. They had 3 shops in Newcastle city centre, in Pink Lane, Blackett Street and Eldon Square. Turner’s photographic business closed in the 1990s.

The first news of which has its existence dates back to 978. Around the church of Sant Marti, as documented by the year 1088 began to wake up the first houses in this picturesque town that even today retains all its medieval charm.
Historically, work in the field was the main dedication of its people; particular importance was conreo of grapes, from the eighteenth century shifted more traditional forms of agriculture. This was a particularly arduous task given the characteristics of the mountainous terrain, settled in part by building jars at the foot of vineyards, which were used for the storage of must and grapes. Already into the nineteenth century, the phylloxera conditioned conreo and resulted in a significant decline in population. Another important task, until mid-twentieth century, was the development of charcoal, until such time as the electricity found their disappearance. Since then, its people were devoted to another kind of work in line with the changing times. It set up a textile factory in the early twentieth century, which was in operation until the year 1964. Logically, closing it was important socio-economic consequences on the lives of the people, determining the migration of population towards the industrial cities or to neighboring towns. Since then, the physiognomy of Mura se ha ido transforming into a large number of people with second homes, laying the groundwork for a tradition tourist potential. Precisely for the new work and revenue earned from tourism, was very relevant to the creation of the Natural Park Sant Llorenç del Munt i l’Obac, in 1972. Since then increased the number of tourists and visitors. Nobody is aware that, as in many other municipalities of Catalunya, tourism could ensure the future of the people so that asentare solidly its core population.

TECHNOLOGIES: surface mountthrough-hole
Surface mount technology (SMT) is a method for constructing electronic circuits in which the components (SMC, or Surface Mounted Components) are mounted directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Electronic devices so made are called surface-mount devices or SMDs. In the industry it has largely replaced the through-hole technology construction method of fitting components with wire leads into holes in the circuit board.
An SMT component is usually smaller than its through-hole counterpart because it has either smaller leads or no leads at all. It may have short pins or leads of various styles, flat contacts, a matrix of solder balls (BGAs), or terminations on the body of the component.
This platform for Pentium III is not wholly obsolete, but its use is today limited to the above specialty applications, having been superseded by Socket 423/478/775 (for Pentium 4 and Core 2 processors). Via is at present still producing Socket 370 processors but committed to migrating their processor line to ball grid array packages.
Perplexing Circuit Board Lines
Despite what appears to be a perplexing mishmash of lines, there’s an actual method to this madness. These lines conduct electricity to get the data to the on-chip processor with no interference, thusly unlike traditionally insulated wires, circuit board lines cannot cross each other. – The darkred circles of the photo allow the data signal to safely transfer from one side of the circuit board to the other, and get past any electronic obstacles in its way.

printed circuit board (PCB)
A printed circuit board (PCB) is a circuit board fabricated by densely mounting a plurality of parts on a plate made of phenol resin or epoxy resin and densely forming curtailed circuits on the surface of the plate to connect the respective parts to each other. A printed circuit board is typically produced by alternately stacking a plurality of substrates with conductive circuits formed thereon and prepreg sheets, bonding them under heat and pressure, forming holes to allow electrical parts to be mounted on the insulating plate, and plating them with copper or other metallic materials to provide an electrical connection between the surface and inner layers. Printed circuit boards have a variety of electric or electronic parts soldered to their circuit patterns which are formed by labyrinth-like copper foils, each having electric or electronic parts soldered to lands with their terminals inserted in the terminal holes, which are made in the lands. Printed circuit boards are classified into single-sided PCBs, double-sided PCBs and multi-layer PCBs depending the number of wiring circuit surfaces. A multi-layer PCB provides a plurality of electrically conductive layers separated by insulating dielectric layers. A typical multi-layer PCB includes many layers of copper, with each layer of copper separated by a dielectric material. Multi-layer printed circuit boards are commonly used in electronic devices to connect electronic components such as integrated circuits to one another. Printed circuit boards used in various types of data processing systems (especially in computers) are typically mounted within a plastic or sheet metal housing structure, and are conventionally referred to as motherboards …

Cool Business Plan images

Check out these business plan images:

Amber’s dream worlds
business plan
Image by new 1lluminati
Lifting the veil: wakey wakey

It’s time to awaken from the larval dream. It’s time to emerge from the chrysalis and metamorphose. It’s time to step out of the plastic straitjacket and remove the blindfold tightly tied around body and mind by insecure family, indoctrinating schooling and insincere relationships. It’s time to decide who you really are, what you’re truly here for – and why.

It’s time to ask, “what’s ‘work’, what’s a ‘job’, what’s freedom, and what in hell is everyone doing – and why?” It’s time to stop making non-existent illusory money and garnering disinterested social approval by giving your time and energy to speed the destruction of Planet Earth’s biosphere – time to live a real life in a real living world instead of running a rat race through a pseudo civilisation of loathsome architect-designed concrete toilets in a pointless maze of toxic termite towers.

Yes, yes, you’ve heard it all before and you already know what’s going on. You don’t need to be told. You know what you need to do. You already know how you really could be living, thanks very much. You’ll get around to it in your own sweet time, when you’ve paid off your debts, when your family’s grown up, when you get some free time to pause and change tack, when you retire, when you win the lottery. When you’re good and ready.

Sure, buddy. Sure sis. You’ll get around to doing the right thing when you’re dead – in your next incarnation on a planet you’ve helped to thoroughly degrade and ruin – when you’re reborn in Bangladesh or Mongolia or sub-Saharan Africa, instead of in a better, blessed place where you can actually be free and make a difference, like here and now.

It’s time to find ways to share what remains of our beautiful planet with honour and without guilt. It’s time to decide whether to live a life of truth and beauty or die for a lie you know to be false. You’ve already chosen; your actions and ‘lifestyle’ are your choice, and the time has come to reassess your decisions and remake your destiny.

It’s time to realise why you’ve given yourself such an incredibly rare and privileged life that you actually have the space, mentality and leisure time to sit back and read this little diatribe. Now is the time and you are the person on the spot. You’re the one we need to save the world – now, at this critical juncture betwixt future and past. Living for life or dying for death? Choose. Now.

The system is set up to make you think you’re either on the high road to material success or sliding down a slippery slope to a loser’s failure; yet it’s designed to ensure you fail in the end. ‘Society’ is set up to ensure anything you build or create is taken from you, bit by bit, clod by clod, and stolen from any you choose to bequeath it to. Putrescent obsolescence is built into everything you’re sold and all that you’re told.

In modern all-consuming societies you’re taxed more highly than any ancient feudal serf, and even when you buy something outright you’ve just begun paying for it with the only thing you can ever really own – your time. The time of your life is taxed and stolen by those you vote for on behalf of remote controllers who think they ‘own’ the world. There are plenty of alternatives to their manipulated systems, but they’re all carefully concealed from you.

Most humans base their entire lives – plans, hopes, fears, dreams and strategies – on outdated assumptions programmed into them by brainwashed timeservers. They smother their kids in regimental uniforms and don’t care enough to notice how playtime becomes muted, how minds are restrained and freedom retrained into uniform mindlessness. They follow in the footsteps of torpid dolts and wonder why a
regimented life is boringly doleful. Trained to subservience by millennia of feuding feudalists, humankind can only approach absolute truths (and long term survival) by roundabout routes that invariably lead people further astray.

Schooling isn’t education. It’s a system where open minds are successfully closed and everything not forbidden is compulsory. ‘Modern’ schooling ensures that cheats always prosper and that bullies and liars always prevail in the ‘real’ outside world of business and finance. Today’s educational establishments are dopey money factories designed to extort obedient volunteer slaves. No intelligent independent minds are found in them; none can survive there.

Schools, colleges and universities are quagmires of brainwashing, cultural imperialism and mindless training for destructive jobs that will soon cease to exist – training yards designed to serve the momentary needs of industries owned and run by short sighted paranoid sociopaths. They’re the birthplace of hierarchy and corruption. You know it’s true. Any real learning achieved is incidental. Scores and scoring a cushy job where you can lord it over others are everything. Learning and knowledge are secondary, sacrificial goals.

The system is thoroughly rigged by and for the worst elements to make sure that only most egregious people rise to the top of the dung heap and prosper. Only the worst control freaks and insecure jerks with killer ‘instincts’ claw their way to the summit. You know it’s true. There’s no ‘survival of the fittest’ (or even of the most adaptable) involved. Societies aren’t interested in change and evolution, but in security, status and stasis. And sooner or later stasis always means extinction, not survival.

But you can be different. So can your children. Deny the unloving death of blind conformity and confirm a free loving life with every action. Be what you always wanted to be, ’ere it harm none. If you’re well intentioned and wise the multiverse will provide. Choose. Now….

For the past several years, my family has spent a week, in early January, at the Club Med village in Punta Cana, on the southwestern shore of the Dominican Republic. (Our first visit to Club Med was back in 1985, and some photos of last year’s trip can be seen here.)

This year’s visit coincided with the awful earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince, Haiti — about 260 miles away, on the eastern coast of the island of Hispaniola. From what I understand, the fault line went straight west, in our direction, but then cut south at approximately the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. In any case, none of the vacationers at Club Med felt even the slightest tremor; we got all of our news of the ensuing events just like everyone else, by watching CNN. But because we expected the capitol city of Santo Domingo to be chaotic and congested with relief efforts, I decided to skip a daylong trip that I had tentatively planned to photograph the churches and markets of what turns out to be the oldest city in the Western hemisphere (settled in 1497 by Christopher Columbus’ brother).

In recent years, most of my photographic efforts have focused on the vacationers who fill the beaches and pool — especially the children, who come from Canada, France, Venezuela, and various other parts of the world besides the United States. So I decided to focus on something else this year, and … well, you can judge the results for yourself…
