Moments in the Same Place

Photographing in San Francisco, CA and seeing certain occurrences happen before my eyes I decided to photograph it.

Alright guys. Today is the last day this publication will be printed till it is discontinued. I want to thank everyone who has purchased this. To anyone that hasn't.. check it out and purchase before it leaves the shelves!


Day 274 of 365: Let it Fall

Let it Fall

As the last day of this month comes to a close I realize that I have 3 more months until I reached my goal. Now I know I shouldn't be celebrating yet, but it feels good that I've made it this far. Todays image represents the transition to what's to come in the next coming months. Until then I'll continue my commitment to this project and hope things will turn for the best.


Day 273 of 365: Birthday

Saturday, September 29, 2012


I didn't really have much of a desire to photograph today. You would think this would be one of those days where I would shoot and shoot... Nope... that was not the case at all, but I do want to thank everyone that I know that wished me happy birthday. Love you guys.


Day 272 of 365: Night Time Moments

Night Time Moments

I didn't shoot much today since my Design Tech assignment took up much of my time. This Adobe Illustrator program has gotten me interested in looking at my work differently so it's making me think. Not that I'm going to totally start dismantling my photographs with crazy designs, but I'm looking to use this program to help me layout stuff for my upcoming zines/books. Anyway... enjoy the photo.

Foundation of a Landscape - A Class Assignment Part 2

This is the second installment of this assignment series. I don't know whether if I'm finished or not, but I'm kind of done shooting and just going to turn it in. In the next few days there won't be much light available for me to shoot. And yes... one of the foundations of a landscape is "light". I think I'm done...


Day 270 of 365: Assignment 3.1 Text/Image Narratives

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Assignment 3.1 Text/Image Narratives

For my Documentary Text & Image class we are given an assignment to narrate a truth and lie about ourselves. This assignment has me slightly stumped, but I got an idea to complete it. I decided to show a vulnerable side of myself in a way that tells a truth by showing my commitment to straight edge. To many of you this idea can be a joke, but among the people who understand... it's been the best choice they've made in their life. Lots of us in this world get lost with substance abuse and don't really understand the true beauty of sobriety. Sure that it's okay to drink or smoke here in there, but as it goes out of hand the casual drink and smoke become addictions. I'm a victim to this, but have somehow overcome the struggles and am now clean. I thank the people who have supported me on this decision... and thank straight edge for being there for me.

Foundations of Landscape Photography - A Class Assignment

This is a rough edit of what I photographed today for class. I haven't figured out whether it's finished or not, but seeing as though I'm one of those individuals who want to get stuff done I might turn it in tomorrow. Perhaps I've rushed a bit in this assignment, but to tell you the truth I put a lot of thought into it. When I have set something up and am in the rhythm I'm gonna go full force until it's completed. I don't think anything else could be done. There are certain elements we could choose from in our assignment. I think these images speak "light".


Day 268 of 365: Memories of a Dog + Vlog #53

Monday, September 24, 2012

Memories of a Dog

This book is pretty amazing and I encourage any of you to check it out. Pretty much a diary of the sentimental journey he embarked while working on this project. It's a great book!


Day 267 of 365: The Week-Ender

Sunday, September 23, 2012

The Week-Ender

My girlfriend and I are finally back home from a long, but great!, weekend. There's nothing much I can say. I'm very much satisfied.


Day 266 of 365: Playing Golf

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Playing Golf

It was a good day to hang with friends. I was able to get the majority of school work done in the morning and afternoon to have time to do something fun with my girlfriend for once. Her and I don't get to anything special these days, so this is something I definitely embraced the entire time. Thanks to Jessica and Alan for being awesome... tonight we hope to have dinner. Hope you guys are having a good one!


Day 265 of 365: The Weekend Starts

Friday, September 21, 2012

The Weekend Starts

So, my girlfriend and I are back in Lowell where we will be spending our weekend just chillin'. I'll probably be looking through my online classes to make sure that I'm on track with everything throughout our stay, but more so will be doing a lot of relaxing. Let's make it happen!


Portraits I

Screen shot 2012-09-21 at 1.52.35 PM

I forgot to post this awhile back, but just recently I had the opportunity to update my web portfolio. Its "Portraits I" which is the first installment of the many portraits I've done so far. It took awhile to edit and in sequence was pretty difficult to get right. I could've just added all the portraits I've done so far, but they don't seem to flow well. I will be adding a "Still Life" section in the coming weeks so stay tuned!


Day 264 of 365: The Five Senses

Thursday, September 20, 2012

The Five Senses

For my "Documentary: Text & Image" class we were assigned to photograph the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch. The key to tackling this assignment is to try and not state the obvious, but to portray these words through imagery in a unique way. Though capturing these with a Canon G12 and a mindset such as Daido Moriyama I did the best I could to capture these senses the way would capture theme stylistically. It was fun, but I'm sure that my instructor would not see it as successful. Maybe?...


Day 263 of 365: Dowtown Walkin' Before Studies

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Dowtown Walkin' Before Studies

It was nice to finally get out and just do something. Today I went to the library to check out some books for one of my online classes. Before heading there I wanted to explore some areas I haven't explored before. I made my attempt to photograph portraits of people in the neighborhood, but they seemed to not be too keen in that department. After doing what I needed to do in the library I headed back to my car. Along the way the sun was looking amazing so I took a few snaps before heading home. Throughout the day I took pictures from my window for my Architectural/Landscape class. After that focused on school work and went out to dinner with my girlfriend. I need to get out more.


Day 262 of 365: Self Portrait - Room

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Self Portrait - Room

I seem to find myself doing weird shit all the time. Since these past few days have been uneventful, the only thing I can think of photographically is to take pictures of myself. It's been a depressing few days. Money is not rollin' in, jobs are not calling me, school on my mind, projects still unfinished - These days aren't coming through my way and this picture sort of resembles that. I'm on a rut and perhaps that may be a good thing in a way. Maybe it could motivate me to do something for a change. I'm just so stuck at being stuck it's getting annoying. I'll figure something out tomorrow.... I hope..


Day 261 of 365: It's Like a Blur

Monday, September 17, 2012

It's Like a Blur

I usually have the blinds closed and the computer on most of the day. I really don't have much going for me other than school. I haven't heard word from Saks Fifth Ave and Gus Powell in weeks. For the time being I'm gonna concentrate on these classes and wait for other opportunities to rise up. Photography hasn't been kind to me lately, but it doesn't help that the majority of my day is spent inside a box. I'm getting tired of it and I want some sort of adventure. Hopefully things will pull through.


Day 260 of 365: Light Study of the Day

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Light Study of the Day

So, being stuck at home can suck, but it can also test your abilities photographically. I know that I've photographed these areas quite a bit, but they seem to have different results each time I photograph them. It's the 16th of September and fall is soon to roll over. Lighting this time of year is my favorite. I love the color of the trees, the buildings, and the spirit people bring. I'm just counting the days.


Day 259 of 365: A Memorial of a Young Child

Saturday, September 15, 2012

A Memorial of a Young Child

Today, I was given the opportunity to photograph a memorial in downtown Middletown. It was for a baby who recently passed away from cancer. His name was Junaid and he was only 2 years old. Nur Moebius, mother of the child, decided to throw a memorial in the Luis Lopez Community Garden. The day was nice, but I had slight trouble getting the shots I wanted. I attempted to capture this by using my Canon G12. Currently, the lens on my camera is slightly scratched so there are some weird spots going on in my images. I might have to bring it to a camera shop to get it resurfaced. It's probably gonna cost an arm and a leg, but that camera is just too good to stop using. The event was great overall and I am glad I was part of it.


Documentary on Winogrand

Friday, September 14, 2012


Day 258 of 365: Garry Winogrand's 1964

Garry Winogrand's 1964

It took me awhile to understand Garry Winogrand's concept photographically. For awhile Winogrand's work didn't surface for me until recently when I had peaked his book "1964." The first time I saw this book was at my friend Sean Custer's apartment. From then on his name would come up once in awhile and I would look up him up. Until recently I started understanding his methods and what he was trying to accomplish visually... because he really didn't have much of a method. He went out, saw it, thought it was interesting, and shot it. No ifs ands or but's. He went out there and just did it. And I respect him for that. When he died he left thousands of frames undeveloped. For that matter he has a lot of history he's captured and hopefully I'll be able to do the same through the years to come. Thank's Garry for the inspiration.


Day 257 of 365: Still LIfe: Tea and Window Light

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Still Life: Tea and Window Light

Possibly over the next few days I will be doing a lot "studio" like work by using window light and taking pictures of just still life. Because of my financial situation I'm not really in position to go anywhere. This is certainly a test to see how well I use my eye. I'm not sure what my next photo will be, but for sure I'm going to do my best to figure this out. Overall, enjoy...


Day 256 of 365: At Home All Day Homework

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

At Home All Day Homework

Not much shooting was done today. I had to really make sure that I was getting stuff done for school. This semester I don't want to fall behind and am certain I can get straight A's. It's looking good so far since I got the flow going. I think tomorrow I'm going to head to downtown and shoot a bit. For now just enjoy what you see. Have a great day!

Day 255 of 365: 9/11 Thoughts

9/11 Thoughts

I remembered the day it happened. I was in my high school English class when it occurred. Though that my mindset was different back then and had different thoughts about it, looking back, it was terrible. It's been 11 years since the attack and it still feels weird. I'm not sure what to say or do, but I can only imagine the folks that had family members and friends victimized from the attack feel. Whatever anyone says about 9/11, if conspiracy subjects do tend to come up, people that were in those towers have lost their lives regardless. We can debate about this, but human life is precious. So, to the ones who died and the ones fallen victim of the attack my heart goes out to you. It's not right that this had happened, but the best we can do is hope for better futures.


Day 254 of 365: NY Capture From The Hip

Monday, September 10, 2012

New York Capture From The Hip

For the first time I had the opportunity to go to New York with the intention to photograph for my long term project. I was able to arrive in the city early in the morning, walk around, take some pictures, and really feel the moment. Through the process I did snap some photos for the blog entry so the images you see here today are a preview of what it's like. In about a couple of weeks I'm going to be attempting the same thing again, but to venture of different places that I've never been to before. Today was a good day to shoot. I'm definitely satisfied.


Day 253 of 365: At a Picnic

Sunday, September 9, 2012

At a Picnic

When my girlfriend and I came back from Massachusetts we decided to head out to the picnic she was invited to by her colleagues. The health center she works for throws these annual parties every year. We went, ate, chilled, and came home after doing some errands. It was fun just seeing people be goofy for an hour.


Day 252 of 365: Just Wandering

Saturday, September 8, 2012

Just Wandering

Didn't really do much today. The girlfriend and I just hung around the house since her mom is heading to Scotland. The only thing that was worth taking a picture of today was this picture of Jesus... and by the looks of it Jesus looks like he's in a porno


Day 251 of 365: A Day Around the Town

Friday, September 7, 2012

A Day Around the Town

Since starting school I've been heading back and forth from home to downtown Middletown in attempts to get work done. So far I've gotten a slight rhythm working through assignments, but still nervous about how the semester will go. I keep forgetting that I don't have to do everything all at once. I need to just let it ride and think these assignments through. I'm going to try and photograph all my assignments using my G12 this year. Let's hope it all works out!

Also.. for the remainder of the weekend my girlfriend and I will be in Massachusetts. Should be good with the photos in the coming days. Like always I will keep you all posted!


Day 250 of 365: Back to School... Online That Is

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Back to School... Online That Is

For the next few months I will be on the computer nonstop commenting on discussions and furthering my studies of photography. Though that I will be occupying my time with school I still gotta remember that my 365 is also important to update. Here's to insomnia and having bags in my eyes. Cheers!


Day 249 of 365: Fall Almost Home

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Fall Almost Home

Wasn't much to do today other than just chill and observe the light. It's getting better and better. Right now I am saving my time and money before heading out to NYC for the Snap! exhibition on Monday along with a weekend back in Massachusetts. Stay tuned.

Day 248 of 365: A Letter To the President

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

A Letter to the President

Dear Mr. President,

Hi, my name is Arthur Bueno, and I am writing to you on this blog today in regards to the elections coming up. I'm happy that you've been doing the best you can to help our people overcome these struggles. Even though the growth of our economy is still progress we need to find more ways to help our people survive. I am not a Republican, Democrat, or Liberal, but I am for progressive thinking, equal rights, and the ability to speak out on problems we Americans continue to face. I am not against religion nor against people that don't believe in it. I am a man who feels that everyone has rights to who they are and what they want to be. I just want equal rights between the rich and poor. I want our students that continue to struggle to pay their student loans get some help so they struggle no more. I want... what's best for this country. I want everyone to be proud to be an "American."


Day 247 of 365: Neighborhood Fall Almost Here

Monday, September 3, 2012

Neighborhood Fall Almost Here

I wasn't really motivated to do anything other than sleep and eat today. At one point the light got pretty interesting and its angle and color illuminated surfaces of the household and neighborhood around. It was beautiful and much of it really shined.


Day 246 of 365: Museums

Sunday, September 2, 2012


Today my girlfriend and I met up with some friends to hang out in downtown Lowell to check out the museums. Lowell, Massachusetts is known for its cotton mills and such since most of it used to be produced and exported here. Among the museum was two things that sparked my interest the most:


Day 245 of 365: September to Remember

Saturday, September 1, 2012

September to Remember

It's the first day of September and already the foliage starts to uncover from the beautiful landscapes of the East Coast. This month is an important month for me. It's the month that transitions to the fall and before you know it winter swings on by in front of your eyes. Today my friend Kase, girlfriend and I went to my gf's old college in UMASS Amherst. The drive is only an hour away from where my girlfriends parents live, but we decided to head out there early in the morning to avoid traffic and such. During the tour my girlfriend tells us about her experiences about the school, where she ate, which buildings she had to go to for class, and the like. During that time she reminisces her years as being a student and how amazing her experiences were. I've never seen her happy and proud. This university was the bridge to becoming the person she is today. Man... kinda makes me jealous that I've never had that experience. Oh well... today was fun just chillin'.
