Why street you ask? Because it's documentary photography - being the candid photographing of unfamiliar subjects usually in urban environments. All walks of society, regardless of economic class, share the public spaces and one documents the human condition via capturing those chance encounters. Your internal reality will reflect elements of yourself back to you in your external environment, so documenting those “random” incidents can be of great reward since there are no coincidences.

Shooting street is Niles' main form of still work. Using the experiences of looking through a rangefinder camera as a way to look back at himself. It’s a life therapy technique he does, sometimes with others but mostly alone, to capture the light of anyone he finds interesting or compelling. Here's a blurb regarding:

Niles occasionally mentors with others which is intrinsic. Extrinsically, he's been working on bringing an intimate street photography workshop / group photo walk into manifestation. Since even the most introverted amongst us enjoy spending time with others who have similar interests.

He guarantees tons of proactivity, humor, compassion, and personality in the host! As well as exotic locations visited, beautiful photos made, philosophical discussions had, memorable fellowship gained, and all around life-changing excellence achieved. 




Most juice is loaded with sugar and is thus, deceptively un-healthy. However, if fresh and unsweetened, can be a miracle boost to your day! Thus blending plants into a goo mush and guzzling them down your pie hole is not a bad thing. Yet, it’s even more healthy to eat those plants un-blended because blending destroys many of their fibers. But, would you have even eaten them unless they were blended in the first place? Where was I?


“Scopophobia” is the fear of being looked at, seen or stared at. The origin of the word Scopo is Greek (meaning see, view, sight, look at or examine) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear).

For we all do have the ability to since when someone is looking at us. Even when we are not looking at them.


The Starbucks logo contains a Siren. In Greek mythology, the sirens were hybrid women, portrayed as seductresses who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices into dangerous waters and to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. This oftentimes resulted in their demise, thus the symbol sometimes has an affiliation with death. They are half bird and half extremely attractive woman, considered to be dangerous and thus more modern references have association with obsession and addiction.

Coffee anyone?
