Black Eyes and Black Coffee.

1st October 2009

Saturday night I left work early to run home for my camera and shoot Rorschach downtown. It was an amazing show that I got to be a part of.

Then I went straight from there to a DIY venue in Brooklyn to shoot These Arms Are Snakes. The fan base was such a stark contrast but  the show was just as crazy in a completely different way that I still can’t pin point.

I came home and drank 4 cups of black coffee while editing. Around 7am I looked in the mirror for the first time to notice not only the bags UNDER my eye, but also the one on it.

Black eyes and black coffee are indications of a night well spent.

    Is it difficult to keep your camera and equipment safe during these kinds of shows?

    Or is that how you got the black eye? Fighting off crazies? haha

      I’d rather get the shot than spare my camera of a fixable dent or two. Its the threat of water that I can’t handle.
      Not sure at what point the black eye occurred, although I do believe it was most likely due to someone landing on me

    this show sounds fucking awesome! my back still hurts from having so many crowdsurfers land on my head at 7 seconds but i would have been all about this anyway! i’m hoping to not be broke by the time municipal waste comes around and i’m hoping you’re in charge of the photos!
