new realms and their depths

I’m quite possibly the most stoked I’ve ever been…  I’ve got my own camera, which is beyond words.  I raced skateboards properly for the first time yesterday.  The one thing I’ve missed more than I’ve ever missed anything before is soon to return in one form or another and the rest doesn’t matter because I’m stoked…

returning to the best bit about it all, my camera and the fact that I own one that I can use whenever I want is by far and away the most self-liberating preach i’ve ever preached.  Having been a Nikon fanboy (until camera store and my desensitisation to camera gear/porn) I felt highly intrigued about my decision to go Canon but i thought about it and it all made sense… Nikon blew it compared to last generation, Canon did basically the same as their previous but did it better and took what i liked about Nikon and put it in a Canon.  All this means nothing really because I no longer froth on the equipment itself (having had access to all of this for free) but I was deeply qualmed, all the way to my deepest depths, by the jail i’d effective placed my spontaneity within.  Hence the sense of liberation…. I was rescued by a whole lot of dollars and a small package of limitless dreams.  I don’t own any Nikon gear (apart from an sb600) so it was an easy decision because the mk3 is a sick camera but the best bit is that i finally get to learn a camera, hold it at night and assure it that it’ll nice things one day and set it up just for lamby, not strangers that hire gear and do strange things…

p.s. you’ll probably notice this blog’s content get worse over the next x period of time, i want to get back in touch with the diary-esque aspect it once upheld.  photos will be better though i hope 😀

this is an old one of parko (now world champ)  shot on the first camera i had from BCH (nikon d80)














europe!!  I’m excited for 2013.  I had a sick time in 2012, learnt a lot about myself and travelled a lot and got deep into skating but 2013 I feel like i’ll be cashing cheques (in the non-literal sense, but hopefully the literal sense too) as I’ll be able to create the way I want to and see the places I really want to see.  Although future stoke is good, present stoke is better haha.

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.
