A typewriter, a cardboard sign, some note paper, a skateboard to sit on — and you’re in business. Met this fellow at Venice Beach offering on-the-spot poetry. He asked for a topic and about a minute later produced a poem. Definitely worth two dollars. I snapped the top photo with Hipstamatic and added solarization via Dynamic Light, combining results in Photoforge2. Also met a photographer for a another blog there that day as well. Creativity and art abound = cool stuff.
