disposable camera: Camp Mackall

Just some bros, holding it down.
"Sup wit dat, my friend?"
Obama came and made sure things were chill.
But then things got heavy...

In 2006 I had a random job opportunity that fell into my lap. Being 19 years old and just moved out of my parents house I was feeling pretty adventurous at the time so I jumped at the opportunity. After a few background checks, some government clearance and a couple plane rides later I found myself at an army base in North Carolina. There were faux Iraqi villages amongst the pines with goats, chickens and bonfires a blaze. Soldiers ready for deployment were taking their final exam of engaging in mock battlefield scenarios with real Iraqi people and I was there to capture it all on video. Looking back at this experience I find myself wishing I was into shooting photos back then because of all the photo gold that was happening around me. At least I had the foresight to bring a disposable camera and here is the grainy proof.

Oui, Oui, Oui All the Way Home

The garden at the Hôtel de Sens had an interesting mix of occupants taking advantage of the peaceful setting . 
There were shirtless German frat boys, lonely guitar strummers, dry humping teens and nap taking elders.
The nanny calls into the brat hotline to determine if these tears are for real or just a ploy for attention.
There are no refunds in life.
On the fashion scale of cool this guy over shoots his mark for cutting edge high fashion and winds up some where between team sport leather and a registered sex offender.
So Parisian.
