shades of purple mainly but if I understood the rest I’m sure I’d point out their presence.  As you may have read, 2012 has been a year of furious uncertainty but I’ve been chasing things and that’s put my mind at ease for the most part.  What I’ve been chasing is the dream of photo-related work which involves documentary of things that I’d happily do for free and could happily immerse myself in for the foreseeable future.  I like my time and I love using it well so I’m constantly assessing avenues of preach which is why I’ve wholly pursued longboarding (because it’s the greatest activity i’ve ever done plus it’s filled with people I’d happily spend my last moments with.)  I was lucky enough to meet some rad skaters this year and through them I managed to land myself in a collective of dudes whom I’ve the utmost respect for (also varying levels of man-crush) and can’t wait to complete the immersion.  DGM is the particular situation I’m talking about and it’s a visual concept relating to longboarding, it’ll be in print but not a typical magazine, engaging but not forcibly involving and will ideally represent the side of the sport that isn’t influenced by sponsors, contracts and marketing..  Because those are the bad bits (not at all bad, just comparatively sub-ideal) My alacrity for this potential future is comforting.  Hard times spent well.


these are photos of mine that we’ve used for webcontent/casj times.   I’m heading to California to meet them all in a fortnight which is luda.. I’ve been to quite a few places this year but not to the USA and it’s the one place that I REALLY want to visit.  I’m not there for long but I’ll see enough to assess their dairy situation which directly effects the plausibility of future trips.

Chad in Carindale.


although i have these plans which i think are epic, i could happily retire tomorrow and enter full-time skate bum mode.  today/last night myself, chad, josh and nate (this rad dude that moved here from colorado) drove 6 hours to the 2nd most beautiful thing on this planet and i can’t/don’t want to describe how good it was.  here are some go-pro grabs (on my helmet) of the 9 minute run that took us through rainforest, over 2 waterfalls and inside trucks.

and here’s a photo that isn’t skateboarding.  I shot this in Salta, Argentina. 
My camera skills were quite sneaky at the time so I guess I didn’t fit in

the espresso paradox considers the point where the espresso’s speed benefits result in a longer completion time than if one had not spent time acquiring and consuming the espresso in the first place.  this point is mostly controlled by one’s desire to consume the espresso, not the resulting time gains.
