5 Years in 5 Seconds (approximately)

February 12th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

5 Years in 5 Seconds (approximately)

I recently discovered a treasure trove (?) of really stupid self portraits that collected in my computer over the years while I was working out of a particular office. May 2009 to January, 2014 – 5 years in 5 seconds (approximately).

The camera in this Mac has seen a lot – mostly me answering email and the phone, photo-correcting client images, puzzling out strings of html, css, js, and php – but also me surfing the net and taking questionable pictures of myself when I might have been working a little more diligently.

The images were not created out of vanity – well, not many of them, anyway. It’s hard to be vain when your first reaction upon seeing a camera lens is to act like a total dipstick. Instead, I created them over the years to illustrate the point, complete the joke, startle the timid, annoy the serious, and, of course, to waste the time.

Instant Coffee

wrap that hand
around that mug
handle mangle squeeze
pour a darkling
draught of drug
black or as you please
sip at steam
and bitter stain
colorize your teeth
now all the day
your breath will hint
at what must lie beneath

The Corey Fire Hydrant

June 6th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Open The Corey

A couple of years back, a friend sent me a picture message on my phone of a Corey fire hydrant. The top had “The Corey” cast in relief upon it. I was intrigued. I’d never seen or heard of such a thing. He’s sent me an image of another, since.

Sinking In

I’m not sure what would possess someone to simply abandon a vehicle to the woods but, I guess, if one had little regard for the environment and even less money …

Bare wood ceiling with tatters

I have read that it is natural to feel a little uneasy around abandoned buildings, as our instincts promote an awareness of potential danger: why was this place, which was once considered safe to inhabit, left vacant and to rot?

Looking a gif horse in the …

sniffin and gibberin

Continuing the theme of a previous post, in late 2005/2006 I began to play with myself … in Photoshop using animated gifs. I used obscure Japanese toys and my own face as subjects most of the time because very little else in the world around me was as outlandish or as willing to be made to look so.

With Abandon

February 27th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

No Diamonds, Just Rust

I went on a walk with my daughter this last weekend to a couple of areas right near my house just littered with abandoned materials. I only had my iphone but managed to capture enough interesting shots to let me know I need to go back with my real camera …

Awreety, awright – it’s time once again for me to pimp my wares (as opposed to “where’s my pimp?”) and offer you with absolutely no shame dsplayed, my 7th “annual” photography calendar.

Way More Than I Needed To Know

 

the Paeuljibras hover
the Paeuljibras flit
the Paeuljibras acknowledge
then link up, then split
the Paeuljibras look in
they dig through my mind
then fill it with theirs
’til I’m no where to find

Helpless head
ever in thrall
Beneath the flesh
a fireball
The skull is but
a porous wall
that can’t contain
the raging squall
of imagination
consensual

Croakery

Don’t expect to see a buncha flower images from me all of a sudden. Flower photos are like love poems: everyone has one and they all stink.

Or something like that.

Anyway, this is mine: crocus, I think. A nasty pop-culture infection has that name conjuring up memories of a bad Sweet cover: it’s, it’s the ballroom blech!

Peash out.

Non-Starter

Non-Starter

A&W Rootbeer (or was it Shasta soda? some other company?) had at least one commercial in the early seventies featuring clips of early automobiles crashing into each other around the notion of the beverage’s excessive foaminess.

For some reason, these commercials really struck a nerve in me and, though I was never much of a soda fan, I developed an early appreciation for vintage vehicles – particularly ruined ones; the less intact they are, the more riddled with rust, the more interested I become.

This old water tanker rests picturesquely in the front yard of my girlfriend’s rented house. It took me a couple of months but I finally crawled out there with a camera.

Chetzemoka

July 3rd, 2011 by Corey A. Edwards

I was playing around with some old shots I took in Chetzemoka, a fabulous, public park in Port Townsend, WA, trying to see if any of them were interesting enough to do anything with when this happened (you’ll want to click for detail):

Organizing my photos for a long-overdue and imminent site makeover has led to the discovery of many, many, many unfinished and/or forgotten projects. This is one.

Ahead Of The Curve (and pimping like mad)

September 16th, 2010 by Corey A. Edwards

Remember, back in the days before the internet, when your friends and neighbors would have to slog all of the way to your door in order to attempt to guilt you into buying something you never wanted and didn’t need?

Well not any more – isn’t modern convenience something?

Now my danged modem is dead at home.

You know we’re in a slump when the cable company doesn’t answer their phones on the weekend, providing you, instead, with a recording that states: “as of Friday 7pm, all services are up. Our office hours are …”

Finally got through Monday morning and it’s “oh, we’ll send a repairman around – how’s Saturday work for you?”

It’s like the universe no longer wants me on the internet.

Well, when the universe speaks this clearly to me, I know what to do: ignore it. Full steam ahead!

It isn’t often that I can get my daughter to relax enough for the kind of photo that shows off her natural beauty. I scored a bunch this week, though. Yes!

Free Idea #2 Time Lapse Lives

November 9th, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards

(I’ve had hundreds of ideas over the years and, due to finances or sheer laziness, have only attempted a few of them. As I dribble slowly towards quietus, it is time I quit holding so close to my chest the ones I am likely to never be able to attempt)

Inspired by the the writings of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and documentaries that visit people throughout various stages of their lives, this idea requires a family or group of people: Four times a year you assemble them in the same place, in essentially the same positions, and take a picture.
