surf check

had a rare opportunity to surf two days in a row. It was my first time on a smaller board in well over three months and my first time in the water in the last month. WOW talk about rusty.... anyways i also shot some film another first in quite awhile. Playing around with some extremely expired fuji instant film and an old polaroid propack. i love the fickleness of this film and the inconsistent results when used in more extreme tempertures...

getting wet

last two days i was lucky enough to get in the 37 degree water for a little surfing. serious rust in the joints and arms but still great to get that icy water in the wetsuit

I just finished Patti Smith's memoir entitled "Just Kids". The memoir allows for an intimate and honest look at both Smith and her lover/friend/muse, Robert Mapplethorpe and their lives as emerging artists. Their relationship and the mutual passion to create is inspirational. Getting a peek into the NY underground in the late 60's into the 70's is equally as fascinating. The book recently won the national book award. check it its well worth.

subtle signs of Spring...

If you look close enough and pay attention subtle signs are evident.. Spring is slowly emerging..notice the longer days, the slightly different quality of the light and slowly receeding snow. can't wait for those fun little log sessions......


love the look of this hot rod and driver.. north county SD
