“Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun. ” ~ John Lennon

I’m sorry but you won’t find me on wordpress if you have a desire to see more of my work. I am on Facebook, though. And Flickr. Please visit me there and say hello. Emilio Pasquale Photography. Even though my name is not Emilio. Nor Pasquale. OK, so a bit of history…

When Monochromia first started, mine was the very first post. When I thanked Joe for the honor, he admitted that he had pulled my name out of a hat. Nice guy, that Joe. He couldn’t even lie? But I still feel honored.

Then, one day I admitted that I was not a thirty-something photographer, as my caricature logo and writings had lead everyone to believe. I am a child of the 60’s, now retired. I had chosen the name in honor of my grandfather, Emilio, and my uncle, Pasquale, who had passed through Ellis Island with my grandmother on their way to Brooklyn in the early 1900’s. My father was born here in 1923.

I picked up my first camera when I was 18. My dad built me a b&w darkroom in our garage in North Hollywood California back then. Straight out of college, I got a job working as an apprentice motion picture editor. I retired in 1999 and became a Realtor in Las Vegas in 2004. I am now fully retired and loving every minute of it!

So, please come visit me on Facebook or Flickr. I also sell artwork at Fine Art America and am working on getting a portfolio together. For my third career, hopefully.

Found at an old gas station off Route 66, not far from Kingman AZ. Joe will have to help with the make and model. There was nothing readable, no logos either, on this abandoned truck.

OK, so it’s not really the New York skyline. It’s the New York New York Hotel and Casino skyline in Las Vegas NV.

But it will have to do!

There was no insignia on this truck, parked in the middle of the desert near Area 51. Maybe it was used to transport alien bodies for dissection?

“Parents and schools should place great emphasis on the idea that it is all right to be different. Racism and all the other ‘isms’ grow from primitive tribalism, the instinctive hostility against those of another tribe, race, religion, nationality, class or whatever. You are a lucky child if your parents taught you to accept diversity.”
Roger Ebert
