This is a photograph I exposed a while ago. Its been posted here before but I figure alot of people might have missed it. I am so stoked to get out an start shooting super long exposures with infinite depths of field. My new camera has an f stop of 138 and a focal length of 25 mms.

Really feeling pretty frustrated as of late as I haven't been grabbing any shots and we are in another little stretch of windblown surf. I got confronted yesterday by an older gentleman as i was snapping some shots of his canvas covered 1966 Buick- Once he saw my badly battered and duct taped Diana camera he relaxed a bit realizing that I was only harmless oddity!!!
NP: Radiohead- In Rainbows- such a masterpiece!!

This past week I got in the water for five sessions. This is pretty good by my winter standards as the lack of light, a work schedule that makes dawn patrol impossible, unfavorable winds and limited free time on the weekends really gets in the way. I guess for me, its important to fully recognize the experience of surfing as it occurs and to stay in the moment as much as possible, as one never knows when the next opportunity for surf may occur again.

I surfed at an uncrowded spot with a fellow Josh Hall long fish simmons aficionado- I cannot speak enough about how much I dig my 6'9 long fish simmons- for me its the perfect combo of glide, turnability and smoothness- handles late drops so nicely!!!
I actually got the rare double session in yesterday afternoon- the swell dropped off a bit but the wave was considerably more bowly with the lower tide- still jello glass- i took out my newest addition to the quiver family (John Cherry 7'2 Simms 21)- too new to review but I am intrigued!! Seems to have full-on hull hum speed with very fishy handling- perfect combo in my opinion.
