Photo Dump

Ok, here's how it's going to go: I'm going to not write anything interesting whatsoever, and post many many photographs that either already have or probably never will be printed. And you will look at them.  Goodbye!

Oh, another Matt photo snuck in. Also an oldie from an NYC trip a couple years ago... Nose manual drop at Grant's tomb

Things to be scared of

What shall go on this list... Let's keep it short and go with mediocrity. As I was falling asleep last night, the phrase "terrified of mediocrity" crept into my thoughts. The statement presents itself not as a plea for recognition, but rather as a motivation to keep on keeping on; to keep pushing for the things you believe in, and the things you know you are capable of.

Never Settle.

Now for the skate photos.

Jason Ross - Feeble pop over. After landing a couple of these, and being unsatisfied with the mediocre length of grind, Jason tried to go for a better one and got a glorious shinner by means of a skatestopper further on the rail. Nothing but a wrinkle in the day... the shredding continues. 

Jason Ross - Kickflip at a cutty ass, slightly skateable mediocre SF Spot that would likely be passed on by many others. It is a well known fact that the less skateable a spot is, the better of a photo it makes. 

Lee Goldberg - Ollie over a San Jose Bump to Hydrant. 

Tony Potenti - Rocket Air Fly out. Yes. This is a land. 

Kevin Leslie - Smith Grind. I shot this guy a couple months ago, and it was just featured in this month's photofile at the skateboard mag website. Check it while its hot!
