Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7

Soft Power

December 10th, 2019  |   Comments Off on Soft Power

Sunday at San Francisco MOMA. “The exhibition SOFT POWER is about the ways in which artists deploy art to explore their roles as citizens and social actors. Appropriated from the Reagan-era term used to describe how a country’s “soft” assets such as culture, political values, and foreign policies can be more influential than coercive or violent expressions of power.” If you’re in San Francisco this exhibit is worth seeing.

Monday At the Beach

Late Monday afternoon the rain eased up a little. I quickly hustled over to 
Main Beach.
I ended up photographing until just before dark. The sunset was different. 
There was not a trace of color in the west. The eastern sky was lit up spectacularly.

I made these photos a couple of weeks ago. 
There was a tiny bit of afternoon rain. It stopped and left this 
picturesque cloudy sky.

Polaroid Olive in the alley studio. This camera and film combo is totally
unpredictable. Don’t ask me why the white border turned green.
