Ever notice how many fences there are? Sometimes I feel like cattle, at least until my next burger. Full cows don't notice the fence.

Shell Beach

I haven't been here since I was a kid, using a towel as a parachute. Now the ocean and rocks remind me of a japanese watercolor, and some pretty hard landings.

Shots in the Dark (part 2)

Experiment gone awry: 35mm film pentax, fast 50mm lens, 3200 iso b&w film, and a broken light meter. Shooting film has always been something I wanted to get into more, much more in theory than in practice. This is the 2nd roll of film I've developed. The attraction: film grain is so much more stylish than digital noise. It turns out that developing and printing b&w film has become somewhat of a specialty since it has to be done by hand, thus more expensive and more likely to be ruined by the new guy. I will say that it was kind of fun not knowing how any of my shots would turn out until I got them back, only to curse the new guy. Live and learn: keep shooting digital.

Big Top Tear Down

Circus Vargas was leaving town and curiosity drove me to see how they break down a circus tent at night. I'm glad I went because it turned out the circus vargas folks are a great group of people, and since they were getting a new tent, it was the last time this one would be used.

Vimeo Vid

So I finally got around to editing the video I shot while wandering around the streets of Manhattan with Troy Harvey and Brett Ziegler after Eddie Adams last October (50 points if you can spot Troy)

Julia's Shoot

I'm bummed out that Julia is moving back home next week, but what better to make here glad to leave than suprise her at a shoot for her sports class at UCLA and get in the background of all of her shots?

Riding Rails

Some pics from last year that I never looked through. I went to DC and spent plenty of time riding trams and trains which was suprisingly fun.
