After

It's after midnight. It's -11℃. On my way home from the indoor skate park session, I spotted a fun little wall ride session going down. I already had my camera with me, it's not like I'm just going to keep on driving home...


Dakota and Julian. Hardcore.


That's that!

My Rules

Happy Birthday to me! Saw the new Glen E. Friedman book in shrink wrap at the local book store the other day and noted to my wife that I'd love to see inside the book. Low and behold, yesterday was my birthday and voila! My Rules!


Even if for some odd reason you've never heard of Glen E. Friedman, you've definitely seen his work. With over one hundred album covers to his credit from hip hop to hardcore and years of documenting skateboarding on both the east and west coast since the 1970's, Glen E. Friedman's photography has more than likely been seen by you! From Jay Adams...


...to Ice T and back to...


...The Dead Kennedys, this book has it all!


Not to mention Minor Threat to Pussy Riot, RUN DMC to Discharge, Public Enemy to The Adolescents etc... etc... You get the picture. No pun intended. This book includes photos from previous books in a larger format as well as never seen before photos.

A must have to any photographers collection of books by other photographers. An amazing follow up to FUCK YOU HEROES, The Idealist, keep your eyes open (FUGAZI), DOG TOWN - The Legend of the Z Boys, Recognize and FUCK YOU TOO

Mecha-Streisand

The flea market is always a fun place for me to take photos. They're often packed with interesting people and at least interesting stuff. Unfortunately the last trip to the flea market; I dared to take a photo of this blonde lady without permission. I figured it would be silly to ask her as she was in fact a mannequin. Her "owner" on the other hand (lurking in the background of this photo) got super uptight and started in with an inquisition of why I'd take a photo of her mannequin. I tried to explain to her that photographers often end up taking photographs and that's kind of how it works. You can't have one without the other. She went on to accuse me (and number one son) of "casing" her booth with the intention of showing thieves all of the stuff they can steal later. Cause we all know that thieves can't be bothered to leave the couch unless someone has shown them "the goods" at the flea market in advance? I am now posting this photo, but I plead with you... please don't steal Mecha-Streisand's mannequin!

Jamie Thomas agrees

Pancakes and Skateboard "are good" - Jamie Thomas. We love it!


Our friend Lachlan (yes that's a wig), already had a one of a kind (1 of 1 limited edition) P&S shirt. Then he went and had it autographed by Jamie Thomas. Not for eBay!


...For skateboarding!


Thanks Lachlan!
