Reported on immigration/deportation protest

Leave a comment

I knew there was going to be a immigration/deportation protest in downtown San Francisco today. So I went to it and it is my opinion that I reported it faster than mainstream media.
I have no comments about immigration, except I do have experiences.
One was that one of my favorite wildlife photographers had been deported, and the other is that lady who threatened to kill me everyday for 2 weeks had been picked up by ICE.
Demonstrators say at least 2 million people have been deported. There are 13 immigration courts at 100 Montgomery street in San Francisco, and there are approx. 24,000 cases active right now in that building.

The I (Eye) in Media
Opening Night: Friday, March 14, 6 to 9pm
Gallery Hours: Sat/Sun, March 15,16 and Sat/Sun, March 22,23, 12pm to 5pm

An installation project about the “I” in media and how we make it, subculture media catalysts, and how to add your “I (Eye)” to the media.

“The I (Eye) in Media” installation shows you how easy it is to add your I (eye) to the media, celebrates coverage of protests and demonstrations, and introduces the community media champions,

World premiere of the Predicta PC steampunk TVs Episode 5 gets you into the TOHO-Scope newsrooms who report on Godzilla through the decades.

SF’s favorite costumed roller skater is having his first gallery installation, and he’s ready to talk about his slinky satire and street theater life.

“The media” is made by people, and we are the people who put ourselves in the media as much as we are the media. We are activists, makers, hacks, hackers, videographers, costume designers, internet video viralists, and culture-harvesters who post flyers. Media is all around us and our role is flippy-floppy all day long: sometimes we are absorbing and sometimes we are making.

Our Bay Area media –community, local, print, internet, television, radio– is rich with participation, and it’s your personal choice to be included in the local media, via political art and satire, flyer art, neighborhood newspapers, public access television, political demonstrations, organizing, and documenting under-reported events, and more.

Feeling down, but then I looked up.

2 Comments

After a real nice talk with one of my friends. I went to Golden Gate Park, to eat lunch. After eating I put my head into my hands and started to cry.
Life has been tough and weird lately so I take the time to reflect and analyze, and Golden Gate Park in San Francisco is the place where I go to do that. But in the middle of it all, I look up and there was the raccoon. I didn’t feed it and it didn’t want food, but he did look at me with genuine concern.
These are the acts that keep me here.

Seeking Reports of Coyote Sightings in San Francisco

Leave a comment

Dear San Franciscans: I am a wildlife photographer in San Francisco. And I am requesting that community members please report to me any sightings of Coyotes within City and County limits.
Please send sighting info to dinaboyer2 [at] gmail.com, or message me on my blog. https://dinaboyerphotography.com/

I am a wildlife photographer in San Francisco, and have been documenting the presence of Coyotes in San Francisco, for the last 3 years. There have been many sightings from all over the City and I am starting a project that will in effect document, where the Coyotes are traveling, and where they are living. The goal is make the community more aware of their presence and to educate San Franciscans about co-existing with them. I am also wanting to get Coyote crossing signs installed in various locations throughout the City.
When you report the sighting, please include, date, time, location and how many Coyotes were sighted.
Please send sighting info to dinaboyer2 [at] gmail.com

Field notes from a wildlife photographer

Leave a comment

Annoying fact. When I spot another person in the same forest I’m in, I know for a fact that the wildlife, will not present themselves to me.
External vibes, from uncontrollable sources, effect the internal interaction between species in the field.
In order for a photographer to achieve, the photographer and the subject should be alone.

Coyotes will not eat your dogs

2 Comments

Recently NBC BAY AREA came out with a report that coyotes are showing up in odd areas within San Francisco City Limits. In the piece it stated that one lady said a Coyote went after her pet Chihuahua . http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Coyote-Urban-Wild-Creatures-Appear-in-Downtown-SF–236280831.html?_osource=SocialFlowFB_BAYBrand
I don’t believe the statement.
I’ve seen Coyotes back down from Wild Turkeys.
If you see a Coyote raise your arms, stomp your feet and holler. It will back down.
Coyotes are trying to fatten-up. This is the month they mate.

Coyote sightings in Golden Gate Park.

Leave a comment

The tide has turned in Golden Gate Park when it comes to Coyote sightings, and encounters. I can walk along certain paths, then I stop listen and look and now more often than not the Coyotes are watching me and stalking me. They are not threatened by me because they look at me for extended periods of time, and then they move on or get closer.

The yearling or juvenile Coyote watching me in the photos are one of the pups in one of the photos from a year ago.
