Mask 4716

My last mask post for now (just getting rid of some old photos). “The trouble with a mask is it never changes” ― Charles Bukowski

Sculpture at Ekebergparken

Woman at Ekebergparken

Ref: «self-portrait in tits» that I posted the other day. “Human relationships didn’t work anyhow. Only the first two weeks had any zing, then the participants lost their interest. Masks dropped away and real people began to appear: cranks, imbeciles, the demented, the vengeful, sadists, killers. Modern society had created its own kind and they…


…those who escape…

I’m working on some new portrait projects this weekend. Here’s a self-portrait/composite image that I made on Thursday. Five Photos / Five Stories – Black & White Challenge: This is a long exposure combined with the teeth from a skull that I photographed at a museum, plus some random this & that effects. I’m probably offline when…


I was passing by the other day…

“the workers were hardly human. their eyes were glazed, stricken, insane. they laughed at anything and mocked each other continually. Their insides were stamped out. they had been murdered. ‘those are good men,’ said the cigar. ‘sure they are. half their salaries go to state and federal taxes; the other half goes to new cars,…


The Blue Bird

«there’s a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out but I’m too tough for him, I say, stay in there, I’m not going to let anybody see you.»  – Charles Bukowski Make sure to visit for more self-portraits.

Self-Portrait with Barcode

and to these, I drink tonight

A “selfie” from the Barcode Area in Bjørvika Oslo. The Barcode has been criticized for being decadent.   “there’s nothing to discuss there’s nothing to remember there’s nothing to forget it’s sad and it’s not sad seems the most sensible thing a person can do is sit with drink in hand as the walls wave…


If you’re going to try

If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation.…


Another Rainy Day

Rain, rain, rain.  “It will rain all this night and we will sleep transfixed by the dark water as our blood runs through our fragile life.” ― Charles Bukowski These are shot with my old Canon EOS 300D camera. Still can’t get enough? Here’s more rain:  Everyday Life: Rainy Day It keeps pouring down


What makes a man a writer?

He asked, “What makes a man a writer?” “Well,” I said, “it’s simple. You either get it down on paper, or jump off a bridge. Quote: Charles Bukowski Related posts: – The W-challenge – w-archive – w-challenge


A day at the Delhi Derby

Some years back I ended up living in Delhi for a period of 3-4 months, which means that I’ve pretty much seen & experienced, if not everything, then at least most of what Delhi has to offer – both touristy & non-touristy things. Some of the stuff I’ve seen/done several times: During my stay I…


The Place Where I Create(d)

I’ve started stalking this blog (stalking sounds more fun & more creepy than following…) – – and she wrote a post about her workspace called “Where I create”. Her post is inspired by some women’s magazine where the readers gets the opportunity to get an insight into the studios & workspaces of female, high-profile…
