briandanielbaker Make sure you check out @clamsjog's page for another shot I took at the abandoned remains of the old nuclear reactor! We had a blast exploring. It was real treacherous too; definitely wouldn't have been able to do it if I hadn't gone skydiving a few years ago to get over my fear of heights.

The more we give our comfort zone the middle finger, the more possibilities we have for a fun and fulfilling life.

briandanielbaker Exploring the abandoned remains of a nuclear power plant today with @clamsjog. We went all the way inside the core of the reactor. Very cool. 3d

briandanielbaker Watching Mike (from #Aarrow) show off his sign-spinning skills at Boost Mobile today. He does this competitively. Apparently there are worldwide competitions for this! Very cool.

I love seeing companies allowing individuals to use their creativity, dexterity and talent freely when advertising their brand. Big companies would do well never to forget that.

briandanielbaker Then I said to myself, “The fate of the fool will overtake me also. What then do I gain by being wise?” I said to myself, “This too is meaningless.” … [T]hey will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. This too is meaningless. …

For a person may labor with wisdom, knowledge and skill, and then they must leave all they own to another who has not toiled for it. This too is meaningless and a great misfortune. …

And I saw that all toil and all achievement spring from one person’s envy of another. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. …

Then too, I saw the wicked buried—those who used to come and go from the holy place and receive praise in the city where they did this. This too is meaningless. …

There is something else meaningless that occurs on earth: the righteous who get what the wicked deserve, and the wicked who get what the righteous deserve. This too, I say, is meaningless.

briandanielbaker I almost never post the same thing to this account and my @BrianDanielBaker_SAwH account (my "skin art with heart" professional profile), but I've wanted to celebrate my first image to hit 1000 Likes! See my #Hipstanudes series for the original post.

It's funny: I almost didn't post this image (at least, not as a collage) at all. Ironic that it's my most-popular one! Enjoy. And follow my @BrianDanielBaker_SAwH page (and briandanielbaker.tumblr.com) if you don't want to miss the other stuff I'm always working on.

Love you all!

  •   liz.reese @briandanielbaker I know. I mean that was the point at the time. But controversy is so much more appealing as a reasoning. :) 1mon
  •   candysweets_0 This may be odd... but think of it this way.. my bf has supported my work since day one. Looking at some of my pictures has literally made him tear up. He truely thinks I am beauty in every aspect. And I am blessed to have someone feel like that abt me. Sometimes, were bad. We send eachother sexy pics ;) lol I usually send him a more sensual feminine pic bc that is what makes me feel sexy. But every once in awhile, I want to cripple him at work (for a good laugh) something that makes him run into a bathroom stale and drool over his sexy gf. And when I want to do this... I send him pics like this. ^^^^ and he melts. And its wonderful. 1mon
  •   briandanielbaker @candysweets_0: It's all about context. Striking that same bodily position with the intent to arouse will have an effect different from doing so with the intent to speak artfulness and self-respect, provided that the viewer has these cognitive categories in place. My aim is to help inspire people toward forming those cognitive categories, rather than force myself to stay inside the box of what the populace may tend to assume. 1mon
  •   candysweets_0 If you posted a picture that I sent to my bf, beside a picture like this.. and asked ppl to label one as art, they couldn't. They would put them in the same category. 1mon
  •   briandanielbaker And that's where my experience definitely parts ways with what you're saying, dear @candysweets_0. Men and women alike have told me so. 1mon

briandanielbaker After a lovely weekend in Atlanta doing shoots, I took the long route back to Nashville, stopping in Knoxville to see my buddy Brian Kaul. Then today I had some wonderful rainy-day adventures with my awesomely gorgeous friend @zoeequeen. She'd been wanting to find this overlook of the city, so we went and found it!

Mission accomplished.

As pretty as Zoee is, you guys should hear her voice. She has the prettiest voice. I'd love to hear that voice every day if I could. Just sayin'.
