Earwigs

Trying to take year long pinhole pictures of the sun's path, but instead I am providing earwigs and spiders a place to live for a year, not to mention meals as they eat my negatives and brass shim.

My weird job

Everyday that I am @ camp I have a point in my day where the weirdness of what goes on here kicks me in the face. Seriously things that go on here are not going on anywhere else in the world. This place is a temple of weird. Here are a few goofy pics of yesterday.

Skate 4 Money???? Modern day skateboarder attitude. When I was a kid my thought was "skate to be the lamest dude @ school."

We set up a crazy ass bungee thing that takes 5 dudes to stretch out and then put it in a guy on a skateboards hands. Going from 0-30mph in about 4 seconds without a hill or pushing.

This is what I look like when I'm scared and going 30 mph. You can see the bungee handle that I just let go of in the right of the picture. Goofy ass pose.

We made a new friend

So, some pals and I were sitting around shootin the shit when we started to talk about chatroulette. we were all newbies, but we really wanted to talk to some naked horny dudes. What we ended up finding was a 68 year old naked fisherman from the Netherlands, who was down to do pretty much anything wee demanded. So I did what any person in this situation would do and took some screen shots. I don't think I quite understand the naked dude chatroulette thing yet, but I do think it is amazingly funny. Enjoy......

ps. the text is amazing & sorry bout the penis thing.

Camp Stuff

I am up to my gills in little dirty hand skateboard kids. I love it. I revert into a 15 year old candy eating dirt face. I am teaching a few kids every week how to screen print shirts. Its cool to see what kind of weird stuff they come up with to screen.

Diego Printing up his Shake Junt shirt. I have no idea what shake junt means.

The Crue and their shirts

Dirty cookie eaters.

Susan Derges

There are photographers who have produced work and ideas that I am 100% envious of. Susan Derges is one of those artist. Her creativity and lack of camera use in her photography is seriously mind numbing. She has created a direct relationship with her images and the organic environment. I am serious in love with the idea of the natural environment being the main factor in creating abstraction. We take our realities as fact, and when we let a brainless object record our surrounding they never appear as we think they do. She has a ton of different series, but my favorite 2 are Chladni and River Taw.

In the series Chladni she sprinkled carborundum powder directly onto photographic emulsion where it was exposed to sound waves at different frequencies. The vibrations of the frequencies on the emulsion created abstract, organic shapes in the final black and white prints.

In the series River Taw she takes long sheets of color photo paper and submerges them in a river bed thet is near her darkroom. She lets the ambient light and the refraction of the flowing river water expose the emulsion. She then pulls the wet paper from the river and processes through.

Here is her website: Susan Derges

total toolbag


I'm way into my looks lately (this is internet sarcasm). This photo was beyond fucked up when it was taken, but I couldn't pass it up.

16 hours


I drove for 16 hours today I feel like a fried turkey. I decided to shoot some pictures while driving down the highway. Words and the brain ain't working too well right now.

teeny quiz (even though I'm 30)



I answered yes to all of these questions, and I clearly need instant relief from this world.
