29. Like everyone, a huge fan of traveling. B movies. 120 film. Scifi/post apocalyptic movies.. Spicy foods/strong beers. Every band should have an accordion or violin. I mostly take pictures of musicians for a living. My previous job was the same, but replace musicians w/dolphins. For the most part this is where I place recent photos, hoping someone out there will take a gander (and let me know what they think!). There's also the occasional nerdy reblog. No biggie. For more specifics, become a "friend" or "like" on the facebook.

Went to sleep somewhere around 2am. Alarm went off at 5am. With nervous (but sleepy) excitement I gathered all my camera shiz, left the house for the beach. I unfortunately don’t shoot celestial objects too often (that’ll have to change), but got some pretty solid exposures of the eclipse/blood moon. Also found some fresh bobcat tracks, a crab made a home under my shoepod (that’s when I use my shoe as a tripod), and got to watch the sunrise. Which made me realize 2 things. I really enjoy taking photographs in unusual circumstances. AND (it’s a big and) more importantly I really, really don’t enjoy manipulating images via photoshop. Too many options, too many results, too many distractions. More photographs, less editing.  Anywho, the eclipse to blood moon over water. Moderately successful.

Looking for an underwater housing for my fancy Pentax camera (under the price of a new camera), but in the mean time… my brother purchased and let me borrow his gopro. They have advantages, but it’s not the same. That’s he surfing a small/choppy day in Florida.

collectingusedgum asked: Hello, I am getting excited for Halloween and want to read a horror anthology or two. I feel like you are the perfect person to ask. Do you have any recommendations?

neil-gaiman:

Hmm. Alberto Manguel’s BLACK WATER anthology (it may be out of print, but there are copies around aplenty). Then Kirby McCauley’s DARK FORCES anthology (a 25th anniversary edition came out a few years ago). Both big, definitive and spooky. The Manguel is a nice look at horror/weird fiction over the years, the McCauley a terrific snapshot of most of the best writers we had thirty years ago.

To remember later.

That awkward moment…                                 …Or I found Jesus on my dinner plate!——————————————————————————————————————————————
Someone posted their wonderful steak for all of facebook to see, all I could think was Eraserhead. I believe my thoughts were valid on this one.

East coast morning.

East coast morning.

More from the Pisgah Forest, North Carolina area.  It’s kind of funny. I put cameras in remarkably dumb areas. I took other shots from the same perspective with varying shutter speeds - all of those you can see water frozen in time right before they nail the camera/lens. (I may post those later) This slower shutter speed shot… everything looks so calm and quiet. Even with minimal digital manipulation, photos lie.

Walking 3 miles up a mountain, we stopped for a few minutes. Right before continuing the hike, we noticed this little creature hanging out by our feet. It’s the little (big) things.

   Just got back from western North Carolina.
   Lots of pictures, weird adventures. Might even post the ones where we’re sliding down waterfalls with Bam Margera, which is totes no big deal. First, another of Triple Falls
