wow, is this thing on?

So much has changed, so much has stayed the same.

Jan 19, 2013
Strange to be writing in this blog after so long.
It's part of my life I will never forget; maybe simpler times, but certainly not as fulfilling.
I think of how much time I spent updating this blog and think is it really worth preserving history.
Sadly; I lost the online galleries on Nightmoves before '09 but that life was disastrous at times, because you didn't know what you were getting into, and you were inexperienced in the scene. Doing photography for the sake of getting into places.

Wow; the scene has really blown up.
I was thinking back to the other day; are artists.photographers ashamed or tired of their old photos, random club shots?

Anyways; here is a current snapshot of my life. :)
Dianne,Yoga,Hyundai Genesis Coupe,Sony,Moving this year,Headstands, Inversions, Reddit, Love, Life, Energy.

Going to the last show of IRIS - Cirque du Soleil !! Dianne my girlfriend, bought surprise tickets!

Happy new year!

So much to do, so much to see; so what's wrong with taking the backstreets?

I had a great holiday season, over the break from Sony, I had company in town. Kristin was back for a month, she just left. Already miss the old roomie.

I am really digging my new work sony vaio, its windows 7 64 and I loaded it on a Vaio z591.
Anyways, first post, first toast of the new year. I will definitely be updating this with what i've been working on.

We went on lots of adventures,
My friend Diana had some friends over for a holiday party.
Took a lot of photos, we also went to Getty Villa in Malibu, Griffith Park, the beach.

Introducing a new concept for this year's WMC, Hot Natured is about artists setting free their undiscovered house and electronic disco treats.

A rare chance to witness alternative sets from some of techno's most sought-after new stars, providing insight into the varying sides of their musical personality.

Guests already announced include Craig Richards, the legendary Fabric resident and Jamie Jones, the future face of techno whose debut album will be released this summer on Crosstown Rebels.

Also on the bill are Lee Foss, the Chicago-born DJ responsible for seminal parties at the Buddha lounge and resident at LA's renowned techno shindig Droog as well as the Droog DJs, who have been responsible for throwing LA's nightlife into the spotlight. Surprise sets from old school heroes are to be announced in the coming weeks as will the location of this prolific affair.

Closing the week's festivities in true party spirit, Hot Natured announces a dancefloor friendly assault and an evening of musically-infused revelations.

I shot Mark Kane on Saturday night, we went over a style, and then I pulled it off in my parking garage. Brick looks gnarly @ f11.
Friends, if you want to see the whole set, shoot me a message.. these are some of my favs.


I've always loved how I run my photo-blog, it is very quick, concise and the quality is all there.
But, for the past year, I've always wondered if I should think of a catchy business name/spinoff...

Sometimes it's hard to remember.. or you could butcher the URL and never find my site..
soltis, solstice, saltis, whatever. ;)

kind of like chipa-topa-lay when you mean chipotle.. jack in the box anyone?

So, before Miami season, I will have shirts,flyers and free promo CD's from some of my favorite DJ's in the archive.
2YEARS later.. a lightbulb went off in my head.. so I changed it out with a CFL. ;)

and I am happy to announce

as my own sister domains..
same photoblog,same access to all the great weekly galleries.

Now you can say...
The night moves me


p.s. I may need some help patching together a logo from idea's flying around in my head...
