Shoot the Breeze: Mark Peckmezian

Intro by Darby Milbrath

Mark has taken my photo a lot. I’ve been missing him since he’s gone to NYC. He’s the most curious person I’ve ever met. He’s like a child!! He likes dogs and plants. He likes to know what you’re thinking about all the time. He asks a lot of questions. He takes pictures all the time.

1. Why do you take photos?
Some weird itch.

2. Do you carry your camera with you everywhere you go?

3. What celebrity would you like to shoot most?
Not sure.

4. What animal would you like to be, if not a human?
A mole of some sort, I think.

5. What is your favorite smell?
Wood or something. Lemon basil is pretty delightful.

6. Would you like to live forever?
No that sounds horrible.

7. What do you think is the best photo you have ever taken to date?
I like my dog photos most of all, so probably one of those. I have a soft spot for this one in particular:

8. What’s your favorite pastime? 
Chess maybe? Or biking.

9. Do you like having your photo taken? 
No I don’t like it. People accuse me of hypocrisy all the time. I’m more tolerant of it now than I use to be, though.
