Bleeding in the Summer

August 2, 2010

I spent this past weekend with an amazing group of friends at the Element Skate Camp in Sequoina National Park. Being from a city where building are always offering a good amount of shade, I’ve never really had to deal with light bleeding into my shots. For the first time, there was no way around it. At first, I was a bit concerned that some of my photos were ruined by it, but I’m pretty sure those exact shots turned out to be some of my favorite ones I’ve ever taken.

I’m really excited to edit through and post some more of these shots, this week.

An Equivalence Of 14,000 Words.

May 18, 2010

I would say that the past couple of days and all friends involved in them, have been pretty lovely.

I believe I’ve spoken myself into a hole on several occasions, through out this week. So I will simply be translating through pixels, for now.

Weather Tease

February 11, 2010

The fantastic photographer Olivia Wright made this really mean page over the summer for us to look back on in the middle of this “snowpocalypse” and long for warmth.

Its getting me really ready for this seasons end.

I’ve collected some photos I’ve taken through summers that have passed. I realized while going through them that I tend to make summer seem kind of bleak through my photos. This will change, this time around.

A 24 Year Olds List of 25

It’s been so long since I’ve written out a list of things that I am loving about life. This is probably because their are very few things that I have found to not love about it, in the past few months. I’ve taken a dive into jobs that have been allowing me to travel for my summer. As long as I’m not stagnant and full of sugar, I’m pleased.

  • Bacon and chocolate from a chocolate fountain, for brunch in Santa Monica
  • The art work of Tuscan tattoo artist Allyson Bannett
  • Listening to Charlie Parker by the pool as a result of a debate of where the clip used at the beginning of the Refused song Deadly Rhythm came from. (its from 52nd Street Theme)
  • A friend saved our text conversations that started at a very difficult time in my life, and is deleting them now that it is over. About 1600 text messages in a 6 month period.
  • Being able to be around my friends in far places for their first shows, birthdays, new family additions, and other memorable life events.

  • Briefly getting to see and shoot the girlfriend along with her collection of shoes, then heading straight to the airport.
  • Sitting at the new Terminal 5, photoshopping and watching the Dick Van Dyke Show as planes roll by. (I say new Terminal 5, because the original Eero Saarinen design was demolished in order to create a strip that allowed more planes behind the still erect and uniquely abandoned TWA check in building.)

  • Introducing a friend to the joys of healthy drinks
  • Relating to Paul Rudds friendship making woes in I Love You, Man.
  • My friend Beas new blog. Its such a positive little journal and filled with photos and writings of her little family, her home, and food!
  • Laughing till I cry.

  • Making cupcakes that look like ice cream, for a 2 year olds birthday.
  • Singing Happy Birthday to a two year old child. Because at that age a kid doesn’t really understand why you get a ton of sugar and people who want to sing to you while you eat, and the reaction is amazing.
  • Tom Palumbos photographs of his wife
  • Slightly gawdy and outdated luxurious interiors
  • The illustrations of miss tal
  • Red Fang..

  • Learning how to ride a Segway
  • Kusmi teas! The Prince Vladimir and Troika blends are my favorite.
  • The website Sci-Fi-O-Rama. The fake future imagery is endless!
  • Taking something that you can only get in your town with you, on a trip. For me, its Zabaars coffee.
  • Learning how to do something that I’ve previously given up on. Ryan patiently showed how to play Wii Tennis and I fucking love it, now!

  • Cleaning the hate slate. Making amends to relationships that I’ve previously taken part in destroying, even if I don’t speak to or see the people regularly.
  • Quitting my job on good terms.
  • Drinking homemade moonshine in the most manly garage I’ve ever seen.

Summer Lovin’ Ladies

June 16, 2009

Warm tea in one hand. Scrolling mouse in the other,  I looked at photos of other people being sunburnt and sweaty all day.

Looks nice, ya jerks!

flash temp

The other night I had an amazing rare and raw steak filled dinner at the soon to be Standard Grill with my  adorable glittering girlfriend and the beautiful and hilariously perverse Molly Crabapple.

Other than taking Little Richards’ temperature with my flash, girlish laughter was had through hotel antics. Gala and I frankenstein-ed digital photography by attaching my Canon flash to her Nikon camera (photo evidence will prove that Nikon is not my friend). In my typical sweet toothed hobo fashion I left with tons travel Nutella packets. And on the cab ride home I was given well needed spoken tour of my neighborhood from Fred!

As if this wasn’t a joy enough, I also got a large bump from a link to my blog! Hi! I don’t know if  Galas friends are as perverted as I am, so let me just re-warn you, new comer. Every Tuesday I like to have a reason to put up photos of happy topless ladies with real knockers and interesting photography.

So, if you look through the rest of this post all you’re gonna see is a heap of titties.

Summer lovin’ titties on a Tuesday.

Memorial Day and Metal

May 25, 2009

wasting flowers

After the bloodiest and most divisive war in American history, Commander in Chief John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic instituted the holiday at Arlington Cemetery in 1868 “For the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land.”

Photo and excerpt are from AT…

It seems that this holiday was put together so that there was a day off for people to reflect on the lost in battle and to gather themselves after the stress of spring and prepare for the summer days. 

I don’t know who we’re kidding. Celebrations of anything that has happened over 25 years before ones life and don’t involve some sort of mandatory gift giving, are easily forgotten. At this point, Memorial Day is basically is the kick off of summer. 

So Happy Summer! 

I don’t think anyone knows how to celebrate the re-welcoming of nature better than these dudes:
