Hopefully I saved a raptors life today.

So I was sitting in my usual spot in Golden Gate Park when suddenly beside me branches, a pine cone and a body came crashing to the ground. I immediately noticed the body was that of a raptor. It had feathers but no wings. The bird had fallen approx. 50 feet from it’s nest in the tree, but it was still alive. I immediately went into action, and called the Park Rangers. They transferred me to Animal Care and Control, who responded in minutes. I led them to the bird and they took it away. It appeared to be a baby hawk/raptor. Sometimes the adults will throw out the babies who they think may not live. But I felt it was worth getting that bird help.

Update: called Animal Care and Control and they said the raptor was bleeding from its mouth and was not breathing normally so they had to euthanize it.

On Wednesday April 8th, while sitting at a friends house, and I suddenly started hearing a lot of sirens. So I turned on the scanner, and a rescue operation of swimmers in the water was underway at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. After finishing up, I ran to the scene and this is what I captured.

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.

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.
