bee side

concert stage for Blondie tour 2017.

The bee-themed video backdrop is adapted from their Pollinator album art by World-renowned street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey. Fairey created the iconic “HOPE” portrait for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Debbie Harry, a fledgling beekeeper herself, appeared onstage in a honey bee headband and a full-length cape which said “STOP FUCKING THE PLANET”. The costume was designed as a statement about protecting the dwindling bee population and the environment.

no stone unturned

stumbled upon this tiny family cemetery in the center of Bowman Orchids in apple country, upstate New York.

This is the Shepherd family cemetery located in the center of the Bowman Orchids, Wexford, NY. Bowman Orchards was originally owned by Elizabeth Shepherd and her family back in the 1800’s. Elizabeth Shepherd was the sister of John Macintosh, the man whom the Macintosh apple is named after.

the matrix reloaded


my commuter train platform has finally reopened after renovations, but now the dot matrix typography on the information displays has weird, nonsensical, thick and thin strokes.
