One Night and One Day

October 23 and 24, 2010.
7287img4727.JPG
The day started with nice hair, but I digress, and will fast forward to the night.
7287img4730.JPG
Susanna Melanie Berry, a sweet soul and a sharp talent.
7287img4732.JPG
We went to the opening of Menage a Trois, with Melanie, C. R. Stecyk, and Steve Olson, (yeah, Alex's Dad.)
7287img4734.JPG
7287img4735.JPG
I need to get in with these legendary dudes.
7287img4737.JPG
Lets get Deanna in that picture...
7287img4738.JPG
Steve Olson's art kept falling off the wall.
72870260.JPG
Chloe S, Liz, yours, and Craig.
7287img4742.JPG
Then the 24th. The last possible day of renting a boat from Joe's in Avalon.
7287img4744.JPG
Off on a great adventure. Escaped the rain all day.
7287img4746.JPG
What is this, WWII?
7287img4751.JPG
California before us.
7287img4756.JPG
It was a very relaxing Sunday.
7287img4764.JPG
The water was glassy, you could see the opaleye as well as the garibaldi.
Then these guys showed up.
7287img4768.JPG
And we got close.
7287img4770.JPG
Or they 'let us' get close.
7287img4774.JPG
Quite a humbling experience.
7287img4775.JPG
These were big, I think they were Bottlenose.
7287img4784.JPG
Pared down for the winter, the harbor and pier shed boats, tourists, and docks.
7287img4785.JPG
7287img4787.JPG
This guy rules.
7287img4788.JPG
"But I found out that bones with flesh are more interesting than bones without." –James MacArthur
7287img4802.JPG
Watched a Bald Eagle eat a Western Grebe. I guess everyone eats these guys.
7287img4806.JPG
The guys from Joes Rent-a-boat haul all of the boats up to the land for the winter.
7287img4811.JPG
We watched them hoist up the very boat I drove today, #73.
7287img4813.JPG
Plowing through dolphins one minute, getting stored the next.
7287img4815.JPG
#73 gets taken away.
7287img4817.JPG
JJ, says to me today, "Have you ever Googled yourself? I checked you out and didn't know about all of your weird artwork and stuff."
Me: "So you saw Deanna naked?"
JJ: "That was the first thing that popped up."
7287img4818.JPG
See you guys next year.

South Africa 1999

Went with Mike V. and Lance Dawes.
72790208mikeandlanceshoo.jpg
We spent much of the time not skating or exploring with airsoft guns. Mike and Lance are trying to hit a bird.
72790209dawessouthafrica.jpg
These fuckers hurt like hell though.
72790209edatelephantwate.jpg
At the elephant watering hole. We ditched our "escort," much to his dismay, and rented a car and took off to go experience South Africa on our own. This was Addo Elephant Park, north of Port Elizabeth.
72790209lancewith2gunsso.jpg

72790209mikeshootsmarnie.jpg
Mike tortured Marnie, the guy charged with getting us around.
72790209mikevboardsplane.jpg
Getting back on the plane in the Sol Islands after a refueling stop, it's a damn long flight.
72790209mikevallelygun.jpg
I'm just dumping all the photos up here, so not all of them need a caption.
72790210elephantaddopark.jpg
Addo. When we drove in, an elephant crashed through the trees and crossed right in from of our car.
72790210elephantwalkings.jpg
"My roommate got a pet elephant. Then it got lost. It's in the apartment somewhere." –Steven Wright
72790210flattireafrica03.jpg
Fixing a flat inside the park where you are NOT supposed to be out of your car.
72790210flattiresa02.jpg
Luckily this park did not have lions. But it still feels being out in a place so wild that you could easily get fucked up by the wildlife.
72790210flattiresouthafr.jpg
Bummer.
72790210mikevwithhugebug.jpg
African grasshoppers are bigger.

Sidewinder Boss: Hey. Hey. How many times do I have to tell you? No shirt, no service. Get the hell out of my store. What do you think this is, Club Med?
Doug: It's called America, dude. Learn the rules.
Sidewinder Boss: "Learn the rules?" No, YOU learn the rules. We Greeks invented democracy.

Janowski is feeling something but I don't know what it is. Or does he think it's so stupid that he wants to email it to his friends so they can laugh at me. Luckily, I will not lose sleep either way.

Free beer mixed with pro skaters is always a good idea.

Weekender's Vision

Some things to look at when you find yourself drifting through a digital make-believe world that only has little to do with the real one, in that it only represents the past, and offers tales of the future, but still never compares to the real one and only offers ideas for/of your actual life.

Huntington Beach, California. Southwestern North America. Early October heat wave.

A different day, same photo. Each time I see this scene I am inspired to take a photo. Sometimes to send to my friends in Europe where the weather is already shitty. What a dick I am. I shouldn't ever do that again. When you grow up in this region of the USA it's easy to take it for granted. Until the sun goes out.
7258img4474.JPG
No better than the pervs with the long lenses. Saw a guy with two huuuuuuge long lens cameras lurking on the pier that day, and there were two teenage boys standing next to him checking out his gear. Actual conversation overheard: "Whoa, you got the stalker lenses, pretty cool!" The guy with the stalker lenses didn't say anything.

The Edison plant that fuels our electric desires and makes this series of zeros and ones you are looking at possible.

“Major labels didn't start showing up really until they smelled money, and that's all they're ever going to be attracted to is money - that's the business they're in - making money.” –Ian MacKaye

Matt B comes to peep the video, and gets inspired to go out and break-off a better "Last Trick."

Daniel is also inspired and just to-day broke himself off a mega-last-trick. Be warned that the Brainwashing will be total. Hi-Fives all around.

A non-Londoners' lament.

There's nothing to get huf about.
72533666girlhomelessmanl.jpg
These people asked me to take a photo of them with their camera. And seconds later I realized they wanted a photo in front of this sleeping homeless guy because it was funny to them. They actually called him names. My faith in humanity keeps taking serious hits. I'm at the tipping point of pessimism.

Fashion Fotografy For Fledglings

Although I have done this before, I feel like a newbie.
7228img4520.JPG
Shot Rob Straser, and his lovely Jaqueline (above), and Grant H, and his graceful Ashley in a fashion shoot for Color Skateboard Magazine in Canada.
See Ashley's Blog for her much more complete blog about this. (I was shooting film all day!)

Grant is often stoic, but never without passion.

Rob submits to the whims of Synmia and Mila.

Can't have any dog hairs in my shots. This shoot was for winter, although we shot it in the crushing summer heat in Southern California.
7228img4533.JPG
Jackie was wrapped in velvet.
7228img4541.JPG
The young Cecile was the toast of the shoot, and puppy-pooped by the end of the day.
7228img4542.JPG
I'm out.
7228img7747.JPG
I wish we had waited for this creamy orange light, but alas we had already stopped shooting.

Yup. The quite agreeable Dean and Randy of No Age were so kind to secret us in.
Thank you boys.
7228img4554.JPG
My first time at the Hollywood Bowl, Deanna's too.

We were terribly late on account of the fashion shoot and the aquisition of fuel for both car and bodies.
