Old People Candy

Bubbles, hooray!
This photo makes me want to use the word wisp.
The old man seems to disapprove of the youths finger pointing.

America's Safest City

Yes, this child is foreign, (note the haircut) German to be exact. And yes that is a red balloon.
Side note: This dude wiffed on breaking the board.
1st degree black belt, 2nd degree fetus.
This man takes his giant spoon full and goes throat deep, he might even be scratching his uvula.
Bindi application.
Pamphlet dispersion increases perspiration. 
2 different generations, 2 different ways of communication.
  If you live in the LA area I highly recommend going to see Deanna Templeton's amazing photography opening tomorrow night, see you there!

Venus in Burrs

If I held onto my Honda Civic until I was this lady's age would the young people of the world think it was "vintage cool?"
 Cough!, Cough! Ciao!
 Its time to clean up my act. 
Do you think this guy ever checks his crotch watch?
Another angle for you...
Recently I have learned that all the good stuff happens under the pier.

Check out this photo site, a section for everyone.

Eel River Valley Part 2

Some more ominous Redwoods looming over you.
Walked up the mountain for a birthday party with our Chilean bros/dogs.
 This is Bone an 8 year old Airedale Terrier mix with the an attitude that deserves a sweater vest and monocle to go along with it.
 Things slowly got out of hand, balls started flying at people's heads.
Then Jordon and I got into an argument about if smoking made you look cool or not.
Here he argues his case.
The next morning we went down to Dinsmore to pick up some supplies.
Finally some socks without all the BS.
Looks like mom sent in Jr. for a liquor run.
"Mommy likes whatever fits in your jacket pocket hun."
We ran into some locals on the way back, they seemed sketchy.
 Ever notice that the Brawny man lost his mustache?
 California Sister (Adelpha bredowii)
Nailed it.
I got trigger happy and started shooting every animal in sight, for scientific reasons of course.
This is a Pacific Tree frog.
 Then I got in touch with my childhood roots and instinctively nabbed this Skink.
A Western Skink to be exact, with a surprisingly strong tail.
 "Mmm yes!, now more surreal!"
Green Shards of Memory by Chance Michael-Darling 2010
Ink Jet and Canvas.
Art existing in the depths of the Redwoods.
The sun showed itself quite frequently up here, I was prepared for rain and cold.
After shooting this photo I made a personal challenge of trying to Javelin throw a tree branch through the rock arch.
Some more nature porn for you...
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind!
And then there was... the 12 hour drive home. First try, no warm up.

Eel River Valley

The ramp, the house, the Redwoods. My home for a few weeks, not bad.

Which way would Bob Frost have taken?
Sheesh, more trees. These trees were fast moving, note the motion blur.
Ive been staying well fed on the mountain, this revealing fish taco photo is proof. Probably the least flattering food photo I could have shot.
 There are plenty of animals here to keep us company/entertained.
Here Clayton gets Kai in a textbook throat hold pin.
Cuddly kittens are provided for the dudes who's girlfriends aren't around.
The dogs noticed that less attention was being payed to them...
They soon became visibly upset.
