It's been a few weeks since my last post. I've left Virginia Beach and have been re-absorbed by Paris. I'm prowling the internet for a job, committing myself to learning my French conjugations, and walking Lucie around the park. In the meantime, my brain is a dangerous place.

So I've gotten a break- After scores of rejected applications across the nation, I've finally found my advocates- the folks of Perm, Russia!
Bus stops in the outskirts of Russian cities are not always the most aesthetically exciting places. So the city had a call to artists across the globe, for images. Whatever gets chosen is stretched to large scale- the size of a tall panel in a bus stop shelter- and rendered transluscent. I sent six images, enough for an entire shelter, and I got an email from Arseny Sergeyev that I've been accepted!
There weren't any guidelines on content beyond this: "Images should not annoy or depress those waiting in the stoppage complexes."
I figured that most people likes kissing, even bored Russians. Here's five images- I'm not including the sixth one because I don't really like it. Props to the incredible Christa Donner for spreading the word on this contest!
