1. It’s really weird, you know, getting older.

    I still remember when mom quit her medication and stopped making all my friends jealous. They started to ask about her and I started to wonder, but we didn’t know about those little pills that she had to break free from. We didn’t know what dependency was.

    That’s right about when middle school started and the days on the swings ended. It all got kind of weird I guess. We started caring about girls and how we looked and what we had, and if it was good enough or not. Eventually we had to realize that being “good enough” was a pretty low standard and that we had to be okay with looking funny if we were ever going to swing higher than the other kids.

    Mostly it’s been a lot of “looking funny” and not much “swinging higher”, but it’s getting where it needs to, you know?

  4. Anberlin at Slim’s SF

    Man, as soon as Anberlin came on, it got SUPER dark haha. In cases like these, I’m glad that I sold the 24-70 and 70-200 for primes.

     

  5. It was the strangest sensation pulling my headphones from their case yesterday…

    Now that I’m living in Cupertino, everything has become quiet again. I’m still working hard, still being productive as often as possible, still buried in my own thoughts; but when I pulled the headphones from their case… The juxtaposition of life here versus life in San Francisco hit me square in the chest. I used to use music to drown out that constantly blaring, screaming, screeching of downtown; but now my relationship with music is back to normal. It’s such a relief.

  11. From Vessel early last month.

    More shots from Beyond Wonderland tomorrow…

     

  12. Went out shooting with Skyler and Ammar last month. We found a secret spot that Skyler read about… It was amazing. We also realized that the cool thing in the park in Hayes Valley is actually from Burning Man. Sweet! Good luck to Skyler with his job with Stealth Records in LA.

     

  13. Can’t believe that I have to do this friggin sandwich shot again…

    Always read the directions *before* faking natural light at 3am in your bedroom. Damn.

     

  14. New Belgium Brewing's Tour de Fat

    San Francisco, CA.

    This day was pretty dang fun. They had so many awesome bike-related things to do for the sober people, and I fully appreciate that. There aren’t many brewing companies that have events that are friendly for everyone. Even saw some little kids there! Happy times.

    PS, notice that the guy in the middle of the last picture doesn’t have any feet for some reason. He definitely has feet in all the other photos…

    PPS, everything but the last shot is from the Sigma 35mm… Thing’s sharp as hell. Look at the bigger versions!
