last shots

The lab that I've been taking my film to here in Portland happens to be really close to the famous Burnside Skate Park.

Created under the Burnside Bridge in 1990 without city permission, the project started modestly, but with passion. Within a couple years, people saw that it was a good thing, and it gained support and funding. With passion, motivation, and the money to build, it didn't take too long for the park under the bridge to become awesome. That's the short version of the story, at least.

I have memories of playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater on playstation with my friends a decade ago, with Burnside as one of the main parks.

Being under that bridge watching the people skate reminded me of those good times skating in the driveway, snowboarding in the backyard, coming inside and playing Tony Hawk while warming up to some hot chocolate...

Anyway, I had two photos to finish up before I took my film to the lab. One on my 35mm and one on my holga. Here are those last shots.

Part 3

Click here to read part 3 of the road trip journal, describing the drive from Arizona to Oregon.

Here's a shot that I took at the beginning of that part of the journey -- on an overcast evening back in July.

SE to NW

I haven't updated anything on here in a while. Sorry for that.

Towards the end of the summer I moved from the East Coast of Florida to Portland Oregon. I have a little write-up on the move in three separate parts here, and here.

Part 3 to come soon.

About a year ago, when I first got to Australia, I updated my website. I haven't really added anything since then, and it's time to integrate some of the past year's photos in, while taking out some of the old ones. Check back in a bit to see when that is finished. I expect it to look quite a bit different.

Once I'm all caught up with that, I hope to post more often on here. I have a couple video edits to show, and of course I'll have new photos. Until then, I hope you find the photos and writing from the road trip interesting.
