As I get ready to do massive catching up with this resurrected blog/site, I wanted to post this graphic that always grounds me.  I feel it is really true and good to remember as we go about our days on this planet.

Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (Experimentations)

Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez @ Hitz Boxing Fight Night 11/2014.

Going through the archives, I found a batch of shots I took with my then new Canon Powershot camera.  I tested out the optical zoom and got these photos of Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez from my seat facing the ring a bit further back.  It was an entertaining night of fights presented by Hitz Boxing. 

Most of these were taken while there was a little hiatus in the fight as Mike’s opponent had to get his boxing glove taped up again.  It lasted for a good bit of time and Mike kept his cool but countered getting “cold” by moving around on the opposite side of the ring (anxious to get back into action).

The Hitz Boxing Fight Night was a great deal of fun and the matches were pretty good that night.  If you are a boxing fan or are curious as to what a night of fights would be like, I highly recommend going.  Bobby Hitz puts on a great presentation and it always feels like a touch of Vegas comes to Chicago.

These photos are not anything special but I liked the memory of a great night and the break in the action.  Thus, these have been posted.

Special thanks to Shawna and Frankie Scalise for having me down to take pics of him backstage also.  They are the ones that gave me the pass and tickets and I got some photos of him as he prepared for his fight (you may have seen those on their Facebook page).

To view the individual photos and to see the rest of some of the boxing photos I have posted, visit my Flickr “Boxing”  photo album here.

More from the archives, I’m sure!

Joined an FB group project for “52” photos of you(any part but please keep it clean)

Typing/SwiftKey Flow-ing about challenges with arm,  music,  food and other things creative while observing safety concerns and healing of arm.   So many cool things made possible by the use of technology.

Though Flickr looks ridiculous and has a convoluted interface (basically trying to be too visually clever)  I am “starting there”  to post photos and browse to be inspired  I want to revisit full-sized pictures  I will also be trying out some different visual styles etc.

This includes all of my other projects that inhabit other artistic and creative realms. Variety is the spice of life, right?

Returning to avenues of expression that I love (and never stopped  doing/partaking in)  but with a different focus.   I join those of you that are making 2014  the year of going after what you want with passion.

Life never stopped.   It was just different.

Happy New Year to you and yours.

Ready…  Set…  Go.


PS:  Not really expecting anyone to read,  but if you do,  please share your blog,  Facebook or any other social media you are on.   I am looking at focusing on communication and interaction to an even fuller and enriching level.   If it is something you don’t want to share in public,  feel free to message me.

I would love to talk shop or maybe arrange for photo meetups or group photo  projects.   Let’s do this.
