Procrastination ≠ Whatever Works

Procrastination from Johnny Kelly on Vimeo.

The life of arts. The life of doing... doing... doing... something? Nothing? And for what? We try to find deeper meaning to things but at the end we've gotta stick to "Whatever Works". Check it out, another great movie by Woody Allen.

Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band

Tonight was the start of Noise Pop 2010. Starting things off the festival was Yoko Ono and her son Sean Lennon performing at the Fox Theater in Oakland. the photographers were told to shoot from the second level bar therefore the live images are not very compelling. However, I took some interesting images during her slide show before she performed. Very interesting women...

Hey Guys,
This is my first post on this awesome blog. I will try to be a constant contributor as I have been working diligently to keep up with my own blog. Anyways I got an awesome opportunity to shoot Elton John and Billy Joel tonight. Thought I would share some imagery.

I like the song, and think the video is beautiful; reminds me of Bill Viola's work (oh, and Margo's movement series). Watch it bigger here.

Upcoming Exhibit Postcards

Hi Guys! Was hoping to get your input. I'm designing postcards for an exhibit I'm going to be a part of this November. Hope you all could let me know what works and what doesn't. I'm going to put my website and email add on the other side at the bottom. I think I'm going to print through MOO so I can get variety.

It would be awesome if you guys could come to the opening on Nov. 13, I'll post more info about it soon:) Thanks a ton!- Francesca

3D Anaglyph

From the assignment to shoot my neighborhood, inspired me to try something new to me.
The 3D Anaglyph is not new and still interesting to experience. You will need Red/Cyan 3D eyeglasses to view it.
