back to life

Wow, it has been a long ass time since I have been on this thing. Let's see, my last post was in May. What has gone on since then? Graduated college with a B.A. in visual and performing arts from cal state university san marcos. I also had back surgery in July to repair to blown discs in my lumbar in my spine. I surfed for the first time in seven and a half months towards the end of September. I couldn't have been more stoked being back in the water. I also threw some money down on a water housing for my canon setup. It fits both my 35mm eos 1n as well as my mark II. The boys over at www.delmarhousingproject.com did a bitchin' job on the housing. Here are some sample pics from oside with my frend bob. I'l be back soon with some more photos, enjoy for now.

Camp Pendelton

Camp Pendelton was so green this day, too bad the only plants I could find were weeds. None the less they looked dope...

Pachenga Reservation

The reservation was a great experience. The only other time I have been there was to gamble, so seeing the other side of the reservation was dope.

Indian Rock

This was a good trip to start out with. When I first arrived, I was slightly disappointed with how many people were in attendance. Usually when I am photographing landscapes I don't like anyone in my photos. I had to get over the feeling that I was going to share this spot with this many people and find a way to work around them and to incorporate them into my work. Once I started to get into a groove, shooting became pleasurable, and I sort of fed off the energy of the land and the people. Had I taken this approach the entire time I was there, I might have gotten some more bangers. Bangers is a word that I use to describe a good photograph. Anyways I hope you like my photographs, and I can't wait to get some inspiration from my fellow classmates.
