Here are the first three-and-a-half minutes or so of my 10-minute film “Patch Eye’s Heist,” which I made for my intermediate film-making class at Montgomery College in Takoma Park Maryland USA.
It is a hoot – a quirky film in which a gangster girl outsmarts all of the boys and makes off with the money.
She murders her boyfriend Icepick – with an ice pick, of course – along the way.
Let me know what you think.
Thanks a lot.

I didn’t include the second half of the film because it is too long to upload to YouTube;
more important, it has a copyright issue – a Coca-Cola sign, which I have to edit out.
That might take me a few days to figure out how to do.
I will post the rest of the film after I fix that problem.
Thanks again.
Tim

Seems I have been traveling the Washington D.C. USA subway a lot lately. Lookin' for different novel offbeat angle-never-seen-before kinda stuff photographs. Don't remember how I took this one tho. Must have been waitin' for a train and gettin' ready to board this one. Yes, that's it. I remember now.
After I took the pic and looked at it on the back of camera after I had boarded the train, I was hopeful, but not excited. When I go home and loaded the thing on my computer and saw it bigger, I got excited and had an idea.
I cropped by about a third, bringing attention to the blur and the play of the two people on the train. I did some tricky sneaky stuff with the color, tone and sharpness, and here we have it.
One note: There seems to be one imperfection in the pic, a little dot up there toward the middle right. In the old days, we would call this a dust, spot and we would agonize while tying to get rid of it.
I don’t think tho this a dust spot, which on digital cameras would mean you have dust on the sensor on the inside of your camera, which is a real big expensive problem.
I think this is dot, or whatever, is something on the woman’s clothing, maybe a button. I don’t know.

"Cezanne Woman" Down at the Judiciary Square subway stop Washington D.C. USA. I was headed down to a talk on Wei Wei at the Hirsshorn Thurs. eve. Talk started at 7. I got there at 10 of. Guard shook his head when he saw me. "Talk's been cancelled," he said. "Talker got sick this morning." "Tonsillitis?" I thought. (ha-ha). Walked it on back 10 miles to the subway--10 miles (ha-ha). Took 10 pictures of people by the escalators. (this is true.) This pic here is a portion of one of the pics I took. I shamelessly cropped this thing like mad. And the woman does remind me of some Cezanne, can't remember which one. Facebook won't let me tag from this page any more. Anybody know why? Thanks. Yay Cezanne.

I don't care much for this kind of photograph. It's catchy, and people say stuff like: "Oh, my, look at that," but still I don't get excited. The best thing about this it is that it catches a crucial moment, not an easy thing to do, but the bcakground is too easy, and it is not mine. It is Roy Lichtenstein's at the National Gallery of Art Washington D.C. I made a video of this child as he approached, eyed and left this huge Lichtenstien reproduction. I photographed this moment off the video, as I played it on my computer screen. I edited it dark. It was a bright photograph originally. I am editing everything dark these days, and I am not sure why.

Here is a sad shot. Most people don't like photorealism; it isn't the kind of stuff they would like to hang in their living rooms, and I don't blame them. I wouldn't hang this kind of stuff in my living room. If it ever does get hung, it is likely to be an an art gallery, focusing on street, or under-the-street, photography. This sort of photograph comes from a long tradition. Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Jacob Riis--they all did this kind of stuff in black and white. This is a photograph of two elderly women in a waiting room of a doctor's office. The office was next to my oral surgeon's office, and my surgeon had moments earlier told me that I did not have some dreaded disease which was gonna kill me.

This picture I heavily cropped. I was taking pictures of a woman sitting across from me underground at a subway stop at Judiciary Square Washington D.C. I was trying to blur her a bit, but everything was coming out mushy. She was wearing glasses too, and an obnoxious blue shined like gross spotlights from two places on her face. I thought I would try a shot just for the hell of it, turning to a group of people on the platform just to my right. There was an attractive young woman in the group, and I thought I might as well take a pic of her. I did and caught a group of men behind her. She didn't turn out too good, so I cropped including just the men. They didn't turn out too good either, so I cropped in just this guy. I like the painterly effect. It reminds me of some modern painter, but I can't remember who. Traditional photographers--particularly photojojournalists--do not like this kind of photography, but I like it and think it is the stuff of the future.
