Nine Inch Nails w/ Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Tension 2013
This is my second time seeing NIN live, and I can honestly say this concert was worth every single penny. My only regret is that I was unable to get a ticket for the General Admission floor, but my seat was excellent nonetheless.
I have never been to a concert that integrated music and art and lights as seamlessly as this. Taking into consideration that I’ve seen A Perfect Circle twice, and their shows were always visually stunning, this is a very big compliment in my opinion. Everything was precise and calculated. The colors brought out the tone and pulse of the music, and the graphics meshed with the lyrics brilliantly.
To those people who say NIN isn’t like it used to be, I personally think you’re wrong. To me, NIN is better than it’s ever been before. NIN (Trent Reznor in particular) has matured into a well-oiled machine that knows precisely how to captivate an audience, stir their emotions, and most importantly, make the fans feel like they are appreciated.

As my followers may know, I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Miami for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I got to see my family, my friends, and remember the city I’d known all my life. It was wonderful, and I am so grateful for every moment I spent there (even the ones that were not so pleasant).
I titled this “Familiar Spaces” because that’s precisely what it is. I took this self-portrait inside the small room outside my parents’ house, where they have the washer & dryer. I’d used this small room for quite a few photography projects over the years. Being able to stand inside it again was very sentimental for me.
Of all the shots I took, this one was my favorite.
I am extremely flattered that a fan of my work, the lovely Suzanne, sent me a photo of her daughter in her Halloween costume for 2012 inspired by one of my photos! This is the second costume she has made for her daughter based off my work. I asked if I could post the image on my blog, and she happily said yes. :D
