Summer: Say “Aawwww.”~ *Summer smiled as she held out a spoon of chicken soup.*
Raven: … *Raven glared at the spoon before knocking it away the thermometer in her mouth.* Summer. I can-COUGH! COUGH!- Ahem, feed myself.
Summer: Nonsense! You are sick with a fever of, *Summer paused taking the thermometer from the taller woman’s mouth and looking at it.* Ninetynine point nine. You need to relax as much as possible! Now hold still while I put this ice bag on your head.
Raven: Siiiiiiigh, Summer. I get that you are trying to-COUGH! COUGH!- Help but you are really starting toooOOH THAT’S COOL!
Summer: It will help bring down your fever. Now eat. It will help get the taste of the medicine you took to go away. *Summer said as she scoops so more of the soup with the spoon only to find Raven averting her eyes.* … Raven… You did take your medicine, right?
Raven: … *Turns her head slightly away.*
Raven: *Now completely staring at the wall.*
Summer: OH MY GOD! RAAAAAAVEN!
Raven: IT TASTE SO BA- huh? *Raven began to argue until she turned her head back to Summer only to find her taking a swig of the medicine she was suppose to take.* SUMMER!? WHAT ARE Y-MM!? *Raven yelled when she was interrupted by Summer crashing her lips into her’s, forcing the medicine into Raven’s mouth and making her swallow by deepening the kiss. It was a moment later Summer pulled away leaving the taller woman stunned.*
Summer: Blaeh. You won’t kidding about the medicine tasting bad. Now Open up and say, “Aaawwww.” *Summer smiled once again holding up the spoon of chicken soup to which this time a blushing Raven eats.*

We are all subject to an empire of illusion, Slumbering through life beneath a veil of confusion. Wake up and see… this world is not what it seems. Wake and be free… prisoner of false dreams. Wake up and see or repeat after me: “Excuse me sir, may I have some more distractions please?”
- These words are from my own pen. Those verbalized by street poet / post-modern beat poet Speeches Beyond are his own and are also true. Video by FTH (true too).
I took the following pictures on October 21st and 25th at Zucotti Park in downtown NYC. Behind-the-scenes — sort to speak — taken with my Yashica T4 while I was shooting a personal project there, which I will unveil early next week.
Like virtually every photographer in the NYC area, I decided to visit the park and check it out. Unlike today, it was relatively calm then. The atmosphere was welcoming. The protests peaceful. The park had also become a media circus, and a tourist attraction. Businessmen stopped by on their lunch breaks. German and Japanese tourists took pictures as if this was one more stop in their Manhattan itinerary, right after walking across the Brooklyn Bridge.
So I got the crazy idea that I wanted to do something photographically about it. I wanted to take portraits of the people I encountered there, to perhaps shed a light to the whole phenomenon that Occupy Wall Street has become. In my mind, it didn’t just have to be the protesters. This had become something more… I’m oftentimes more interested in how we perceive an event in reality than the event itself. And this perception nowadays includes and is saturated by the Media, twitter, Facebook, and every passerby with their iPhone camera. But this was crazy because I thought, “how am I going to come up with something original from something I feel everybody and their mother is covering ad nauseam?”
Only time will tell.
So wait till next week for this project. I’m really excited about it. In the meantime, enjoy these.
