pdxsf day five and six

here's what camping looks like!

pdxsf day three

I somehow barely took any pictures in sf, and the ones I did take were shit. again, 86ing the canon after this, I'm just not in a place to learn how a new thing works. ol' reliable-ish mamiya just got a pay raise increase. ANYWAY. alex martin, one of the raddest ladies I know, took me on a whirl wind adventure where we: ate breakfast, texted in nature, drove a car, and ate at in-n-out, all while having deep conversation about life and love and sex and mental health. it was really one of the most beautiful days ever, and exactly how I wish every day of my life was. I wish I had brought some e-6, and my mamiya, cause her hair and her incredibly beautiful eyes were meant for it, and I also wish she lived near me, so we could replay days like this all the damn time.

also during this day, dean helped me get my tire fixed, I hung out with siesta dave, I caught up with veronica, and I went to the bar with all of the people above and more. zero documentation. too busy loving life?

pdxsf day two

because of our late start on thursday, we barely stopped on friday, and when we did, it was usually for gas, but I did get a couple of gems

pdxsf day one

we got a little of a late start, due to the first of two tire problems on the trip, but the fact that we made it to this spot, to take these pictures, means that our timing was perfect. nature, plus justin smoking some tobacco. cause people do that. out of glass pipes. while in nature.


so, justin asked me if I wanted to go camping. I said yes, and then altered our plan to involve motorcycles, and also a detour to san francisco. I think it was the right choice.

my first modification to my bike was the simon p green camera mount, which was followed by some of the best bungee chord attachments I've ever done. it may look like a lot of stuff, but most of that has to do with the fact that my sleeping bag doesn't really compress, and is in the bottom bag, and the other camping gear I brought with me. the casio ended up being the right choice, as well.


I think the only thing I really like about my new canon is the macro lens. so, when I 86 the canon from the group, I'll really miss that. maybe I can find one for my mamiya?

first river trip of 2011:

my first river trip involved an amazing motorcycle ride, buds, babes, perfect weather, and the river. what more could you ask for? first roll shot with the 50mm lens for the canon, and I think I'm gonna go back to the 28mm for the next roll, I like it a lot better.
