We are all capable of horrible things if put in the situation

I just got my Mac stolen yesterday. I have never been so angry in my life. We were on our first day of the two week trip which went horribly wrong. I got my Macbook and 30 cyanotypes stolen and my friend Bogdan has absolutely no clothes left. Along with my Mac the fucking imbeciles also took random stuff like: an elastic wrap for joint problems, napkins, a box of fuses, an elastic cable and some other shit.

On the way back, Bogdan and i wondered: "What would we do if we caught them?". This post is about contemplating that question.

The only verdict is vengeance and if i had the chance, i would mutilate the person without the least bit of humanity. It's the circle of life and, if push comes to shove, he'll be at the losing end of it all. One of the things i appreciate about Arabs is that they cut the thief's hands off, if convicted. Simple, yet so efficient.

To my own thief: pray to whatever deity you pray to that we don't meet - the savage beating you will get will be an unforgettable experience.

4 more tests before we part

Tomorrow i'm leaving for the mountains. No civilization, no phone signal, no problem. Here's some of the last tests i've done. I've just coated 33 more papers to take along for the ride - we'll see how that goes.

Cyanotype

I have just returned from the UK, where we attended my graduation. Surprisingly enough, i did graduate with a First Class BA(Hons). Now i am beginning work on my second project, and the first after leaving school. It'll be cyanotype based, but more information will be provided later on in the process. For now, all i can say is that the first tests have been a success (to my own surprise) and that i have built my own exposure frame (there is very little that power tape and a small screw driver cannot conquer or create). So, here are my first tests:




We're leaving Sunday on a long trek in the mountains to work on a common project, Bogdan and I, and i will be taking a fairly large number of cyanotype-coated papers and will try to keep a record of our journey in this particular way. So far, so good ...

nothing.

I won't be writing on the blog for a while. Got stuff to do. Race to organize. Places to go and people to avoid. Do the same.
