I recently went on this fun skate / camp trip with some good friends of mine to Bedford, VA. These are some throw away shots but I wanted to make fun of myself and kind of call my generation out on some bullshit. Definitely not pointed at any of my dear friends in these photos. Just maybe me getting old and not understanding why we are so succeptable to crap.
1.Just because it is shot with film does not make it good.
2.We used to play in bands and use nice gear, now its cool to suck and I really dont understand why.
3.Thank Alfred Stieglitz and his photo magazine from 1903 "Camera Work" for photography's use in advertising.
4.This is why Im a product of my generation.

no light meter all brain function / malfunction
I do a lot of things for my job with WRV but the best part is when I get to take these surf road trips to see the accounts we deal with. My territory is the entire East coast. Portland Maine - Miami Fla. This trip was in Florida and I had some crazy strain of the Flu. I was bleeding and dying and sleeping in the van with surfboard embryos. To stop myself from doing myself in from being sick Chris and I got these RAD adventure time T-shirts from Wal-Mart. They were originally 10 bucks, but I just took the tag off the discounted $5 Beavis and Butthead shirts and put them on these puppies.
Canonet QL17 - brained out light meter
Jeff and I went to look at a house for rent out in Pungo in my "new" 82 Toyota. It was pouring down rain and chilly but we went out to this peace lodge I had come across one time kayaking. Actually if you look back a few years on here you can see that post. Who wants to camp there one night? There is a wood burning stove, we just need to hook the chimney back up. Also these were shot using some Lomography 400-3 film. Pretty cool, has a Vietnam era / Nat Geo kind of tone to it.
Canonet QL17 - my favorite, mental light meter machine.
Above is my rolling / road tool box that I use to fix anything on this bike during trips. I guess it also serves an emergency Judys Pub tank top. I just spent well over a year rebuilding the engine on this bike. When it is tuned well and running right, nothing really beats the feeling.

Walking around with your camera has its advantages, while mirror lock makes the shutter silent. I wouldnt say Im INTO graffiti but I think its better than blank walls. Cities with more of it, or painted buildings just feel better. This bullshit suburban thing where all walls must be perfect and clean is a joke. Of course this piece is already gone but I loved seeing it while it was there.

Fuji Sensia 100 - Canonet QL17
I had never heard of St.Lucia prior to going there. Once I started talking about it, all I heard was the word HONEYMOON. We were there for 14 days, and I understand why people go HONEYMOON there but personally, from my feelings, that would sell this place short. To think of it as a perfect little island is weird. It was eerie, powerful, spiritual, lonely and haunting. The locals were acute but slow. Very kind, insanely observant and visually Im left with a movie scene - The Astronauts meet the Aliens and the suspense is drawn from the question - Can the Aliens read the Astronauts mind and see their Souls with those eyes!? There must be something more out there then diamonds and fresh shrimp. Yeah, driving on the right side of the road is different and so is the depth of the ocean but there was something to this place and its people beyond beauty. The weather was perfect. The water was blue. The leaves were green. The flowers were pretty. The hummingbirds were entertaining. The Rum was a drug and the moon was as bright as the sun (these last 3 shots were bulb exposures from moon light) If I needed to escape to record an album about spirits, ghosts and the supernatural I would go here. I dont know where to go if I ever get married.
