4th Set, December 2006

happy holidays and all of that nonesense. here is the fourth set of the ivan ives in lofi photoblog. i thought i'd go all out and finish 2006 off with a bang. so here are some premiere (and not-so-premiere) pieces i've taken over the past week and a half or so.

i've gotten some criticism about my photographs, saying that some of them are very very good and that others are "just pictures of people," or not that well composed, etc. - that i should just put up only my best work. while i respect that point of view, also keep this in mind - i'm not really a "photographer" - i'm a filmmaker, and a musician. this is something i do on the side. although i know i have an eye for interesting things/angles/etc., i also enjoy to take pictures of people in my life, and people that i encounter.

regardless, thank you to everyone that looks at my work, and i hope you continue to enjoy looking at it as i continue to enjoy capturing it. au revoir, ives.

3rd Set, December 2006

series number 3 is here. this issue doesn't have as many "hipster" girls in it, so if you were here only for the sluts, maybe this episode isn't for you. it's christmas time again, and as usual i feel very strange around this time of year - well, with being poor and dealing with overwhelming feelings of loneliness (despite the fact that i am always surrounded by people) - i'm sure a lot of you know that feeling. anyway, i started liking some of these pics and so i named this first one "dream sequence." enjoy and let me know what you think.

love, your best friend in the world,
ivan l. ives
