A Photographic Journey into Madness

The ZenFo Pro tests out his new used digital camera (left).

Note the gray tee shirt, as this indicates that the day this photo was taken was not a regular work day. The ZenFo Pro wears black tee shirts to work.

Just another guy, really.

The paintings (above, right) are works done by the ZenFo Pro.

Live Oak, at far right, was painted using only fingers, cigarette butts, automotive primer, and the breasts of two former lovers, including the Italian Backpacker Fling last year. (Feel free to read Part 1 and Part 2 of that sordid affair.)


You know, turning a piece of plywood into a work of art using women's breasts does sound kinda hot, now that I think about it...

The guitar, a 3/4 size acoustic (center, bottom), has been in my grubby little hands since my punk days. Paid $50 for the sucker in a pawn shop.

I've been picking on it quite a bit lately, channeling my inner Patrik Fitzgerald (samples at artist MySpace page) and butchering numerous classic punk songs.

What can I say?

I'm one strange dude.

NOTE - Post partly inspired by the much missed Mizzy B and her groovy Bohemian influences on this blog, memories of Shayna's Half-Nekkid contributions prior to pregnancy, the Well-Dressed Librarian's classy at-home interview, and, of course, poor Steph taking one for the Swingin' Friends team in terms of free expression of sexual faux-pas.

you know, I quite honestly never thought of using breasts in that manner. I must try this at my next opportunity.

I had exactly the same reaction. I must do that too.

Sometimes I just do not know what to say here.

You are one strange dude and I'm sure we wouldn't have it any other way.

Actually if you were one not so strange dude I probably wouldn't be reading this.

Yes you are super sexy,I also just got a digital camera (before I just used non-digital cameras,because they were the only ones that could take good close-up photos)and I paint,though I have not done one in awhile. p.s Johnny Cash used to have an office in the same buliding where I now work,and a house about 2 miles away from I live. CA time is 9:42pm

Love the people who inspired this post, though cab't see either MizzyB or Shayna, well maybe, both of them :)

I have been taking absurd self portraits, printing them out, cutting them up and reconstructing them.

Have to keep myself from walking around with my camera because I forget I'm actually trying to exercise and stop every two seconds--digital cameras are addictive

Oh my what sweetness to jump back into the thick of things with! You have me teary eyed amigo mio and, being one honored to have seen more than what is posted here, I must say that I LOVE your digs FO SHO!

Gracias for the sweet words... did my weary bohemian soul much good... and I hope to be back for good! Can't be missin' any more of your strangeness DAS FO SHO! And being strange, in my book, is the norm and the way to be which is why I loooooove you so! Besos!

The ZenFo Pro said...

Lol, you should try it sometime. It just came to me...

Hey, its hard to come up with things to entertain visitors out here in Oxford ;)


Yup, I'm a strange one alright.

Lol, speechless?!? You?


Lol, yeah it's been more than a year since I last did any painting. Been meaning to get back into it.

Cash? Cool shit, chica. :)

Oh hell yeah the suckers are addictive! I have a sweet Canon I use for work - thing fires like a traditional SLR, too.

Yeah, I need to start getting out more myself. Been way too much of a slug lately.

Ah, muchas muchas gracias, Mizzy :) And glad to see you're still alive, too.

Haha...yeah, it is kinda a neat place, huh?

xboxgirl said...

Me and my one-third Irishness wishes(sexy)you a happy St. Patrick's day :)

Steph said...

I wouldn't say you are strange so much
But that's a good thing.

The ZenFo Pro said...

Lol. Thanks :)

Ha! Yep...quirky...

Isn't that the same as saying "special" in place of "dented?"


Joanna said...

Ahhh, thanks for the peak into your world.... looks like quite an interesting one!

The ZenFo Pro said...

Lol, you're welcome :) Yeah, at times, it's quite entertaining ;)
