I visited the Post Falls Public Library in Idaho back in August 2006. I recall that trip fondly due to a public concert by a local band one evening that week.

Styx

My first rock concert without my parents was Loverboy & The Hooters way back in 1986. Last night Loverboy opened for Styx, a band I’d not yet experienced live. Despite the >80f temps, is was a great show.

Langston Sylvester reads about Elijah Muhammad in The African American Almanac at the Sacramento Public Library. Sylvester visited the library each day during Black History Month to study the lives of notable African Americans.

On a recent visit to the Sacramento library, the high number of homeless patrons I saw there surprised me.

Seeing them in that quiet space, consumed by traditional media, I was struck by the difference between them and most of society with its 24/7 connection to streaming digital media. I began this project to take myself out of my own patterns and habits, to change my perspective, to observe, to listen, to understand, and to share this place of quiet.

Lytro Light Field Camera
April 17th, 2015 by Michael Sauers

Yesterday I received my Lytro (1st Gen) camera and have played with it just a little. I’m taking it on a road trip this weekend to really get a chance to use it but in the meantime, here’s the “best” of what I could do last night. Keep in mind, that all three images and the movie are the result of a single snap of the shutter.
