Hey Matt I just cannot get the TIFFS to load on to the FTP server........ Don't panic I have loaded the 10 selects for B.......... But only as RAW files bro.......... Not sure why one can work and not the other...... oh well hopefully I will be able to hand them to you at HJ ATL airport later today............. Amin has fixed up a new about page tonight........ so hopefully that will be up over the weekend....... I will draw your attention to it when its up guys.........

I am listening to a radio piece about the life of the artist Arshile Gorky......... woow he is the archetypal suffering artist..... he had terrible things happen in his life he was with his mother as she starved to death having earlier escaped massacres......... he had terrible luck.... his wife had an affair with his best friend... he had terrible illness and an accident that temporarily left his painting arm paralysed, a fire destroyed his studio and a lot of his work ........ he ended up committing suicide....... and yet he continued to paint amazing colorful canvasses uplifting ans beautiful.......

Yesterday I was outside Alexander McQueens designer clothes store in the Meat packing district before I had heard the news of his death ....... I was struck by how amazingly flamboyant and colorful his creations were...... again his creations seemed to be so uplifting..............I was shocked to hear that he had comitted suicide later that same day.

This picture is shot on Central Park West in the snow just as the light fails.
