Happy Nude Year

I have one photo that mentions a Hummer, and another that includes "bikini" in the file name of the photo. They get a ridiculous number of hits from Google's image search. So, you sickos, this one's for you. Happy new year.

Dunas and Jarvis.


Looking Down at the Sky

"The taste for quotations (and the juxtaposition of incongruous quotations) is a Surrealist taste."

Reflections in broken glass, the Rail Lands



The boy dog of the pair hasn't had his photo shown very much recently.

Taken using my brand new FL-36 flash.

I have very few photos taken from the Bathurst Street Bridge at night.

My Fetching Redhead

My Fetching Redhead

Dog photos used to be all I took, but I've been neglecting them as I became more "Serious." Serious isn't all that great a thing to be.

This is now my 202nd post; this little doggie was also my second post. She's an absolute sweetheart. You may remember her from a more compromising moment.


The Weight

Everything is made of stone.

A piano, disassembled and abandoned in an alleyway, plays one more note.

This is my 200th post, and is presented as a tribute to a good friend in Texas. If he hadn't taken his photo first, I never would have taken this one.

There are a couple of other neat numbers to share: I've just passed my 8500th visitor, and will pass 15000 page views within a week. My main camera, the brilliant and under-appreciated Olympus E-1, is six months old and has just passed 6800 exposures. Only 143,195 until its rated service life is up. Finally, photos that do not have a grey border are being hosted from my Flickr account, which is where I'm keeping most of my presentable work these days. This blog will continue to be my 'best of' and personal showcase.


Zero Frame Exposure

Walking toward City Hall on a Tuesday Night.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
