How could this be possible? I move from Austin back to Virginia...and THEN my friend Brian looks into the woods and finds this! Brian's name is Brian falls for starters, if that isnt cool enough maybe the fact that he is a legit Dr. works at a hospital and rides bmx is? Brian was my number 1 bmx buddy in austin we found the pool above together also. But alas, without me hes still finding great spots in austin. good job, this is what he said about the the bobsled.
"One day I was driving by some woods on a hill and I looked into the woods and saw what looked like an old concrete water slide. And so a few days later I went back and checked it out... guess what?!??? It was a totally rad concrete waterslide bobsled ride down a huge hill. It looked like it had been abandoned since the 1960s and had tons of graffiti covering it. It was the perfect snake run... soooo fast and soooooo much fun to ride. I wish you coulda been there. Some cool stuff about the water slide I forgot to mention was... 1) it had a PERFECT concrete berm, tight turn, everything!!!! 2) at the end, where the slides (there were 2 of them side by side) empty, there was a pool!!!! but it was full of water and leaves and crap!!! it has a perfect tranny, but would take HOURS to drain out with buckets... oh man i wish you coulda been there, then we could have drained it together."

So heres the deal with developing film and printing it yourself. it takes forever, its fun but looks whack once you scan it. I was walking through the woods and found this car...stuck between some trees in the middle of no where. I like to think that it was a deleted scene from dazed and confused- a couple drove from Texas all the way to Virginia in one night and ended up in the woods, leaving the car behind. Self portraits are lame ok, you got me, but I had to test that feature out on the camera and was into the results. Ive got tons of prints coming up. If you shoot black and white film come up here and develop with me, itd be fun. Kodak tmax 100, cannon FT-1 (ancient) 60mm lens, wide angle lens, portrait lens used on car. Photo shop used to crop.

So if you know me, you know squirrels are one of my favorite animals EVER, so getting to feed them like this was terrific! I had 3 cameras stolen from me in Acapulco as did Katy, quite a disappointment. So about 5 rolls of film will never be seen. But here are some fun times and good food from Mexico! I guess I should mention new years is a family holiday in Mexico and we got invited to a family gathering which was unreal. At midnight everyone eats 12 grapes and makes wishes for each grape, pretty neat. OH and salsa dancing with women wearing watermelon hats...cant beat that!
