new stuff

well it is that time a year again and the snowboard magazines are starting to publish their goods once again. got my first one in the mail today, it was the new snowboard magazine buyer's guide. thumbing through it i was stoked to find a full page nikita ad with one of my shots. didn't know it was going to be there, so it was a nice little surprise at the end of a long day. check it out if you get a chance...

my moleskine

i am a big fan of my moleskine notebook. i am a bit forgetful of the majority of my life so i need to write things down, not everything, but most things. strangely enough it does not matter where i write things down, simply that i write them somewhere seems to be enough to help commit the task or object to memory. the moleskine becomes so useful because it is small enough to almost always be close, i call it the traveler size, i have no idea what they call it. at any rate my "traveler" is just about finished and that inspires a bit of reflection.
there is stuff from the days of terrain parks, with set ups and ideas.there are story notes from trips i have taken.
there are file breakdowns of photos that i liked and needed to use.and finally the journey is nicely wrapped up in totally anti-climatic mannor by the technical data from my current job.
i guess the moral of the story is that if you have a hard time remembering things, get a moleskine or any notebook for that matter. besides remembering all those really important things, you will have a fun day of reminiscing when the book is all filled... oh well off to the store to get a fresh book to fill with random tidbits and coffee stains.

midwest fall

the fall has always been my favorite season in cleveland. it is all about great colors, crisp days and the absence of the oppressive humidity that lurks during the summer. we had a taste of it this past weekend, complete with some great storms coming off the lake. reason enough to get the camera out and dust off the cobwebs...

a guide to your pants... and their placement

for all you jokers out there wearing your pants too low... i guess detroit aka "the d", aka worst place in america, is cracking down and defining decent and indecent pant placement. check out the handy guide from the detroit free press about the different levels of acceptable "sag". with this out there i would like to also institute the tightness guidelines which would assign decent and indecent levels of tightness. if we are fining the butt crack, i want to also fine the moose knuckle both male and female.

here are a few pics from the enlightened show in toronto. stopped by on the way back from canada to check out the show. it was really amazing, tons of rad photos all displayed in a really unique way. the photos were printed on a plastic material and then put in light boxes to give the effect of glowing, really cool. i think the show ended last week but it was up for a month. it is pretty cool that all so many people got to see some of what we(action sports photogs) do, and since it was also a brewery, they got to drink some pretty good beer while checking out what we do, so everyone is happy. thanks to the folks at enlightened for picking one of my photos to show , thanks to vera for doing a sick slash when it was cold out, and finally thanks to ashley for bringing a camera to the show and taking a few shots...

went to see radiohead last night, it was amazing. thom york's haunting vocals, a crazy stage and lighting set up coupled with an amazing group of musicians equals one fantastic show. there are a few photos take from my phone, should give you an idea on the light and stage situation, but as they are from my phone that would be about all they give, an idea. better yet you should make a point to see radiohead live for yourself and really enjoy two hours of solid talented music.

old photos

posting old photos makes me feel like i am doing something when in all actuality, i have not done anything in awhile. so bare with me and let me feel like i have just gotten off the hill with some new shots to look at... you could pretend too, it could be fun...
