“In high school and college the fog smelled of eucalyptus and wet gravel and tasted of weed smoke and salt water. It kept us company while drinking 40s outside the Presidio Bowl and pissing out bonfires at Ocean Beach.” . . . Writer’s block but got a few lines down. I’m so elegant lol. Hopefully finish this next blog post this week 💀
“Times are hard for dreamers” - @bahnmibabe Ok no Canadian tux today but I have this dad hat from @publicschoolnyc in support of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) - 50% goes to the ACLU. The March 5th deadline that Trump set passed yesterday with no action by Congress and a Maryland judge struck down the challenge by DACA recipients. Things are kind of up in the air until legal alternatives are provided but kids could start losing resident status soon. Some actionable items right now include continuing to call your lawmakers to voice your concerns, participating in a local protest, donating to the ACLU, and voting out these assholes in the 2018 election. These hats are available at publicschoolnyc.com #daca #aclu #dreamerswelcome #dreamact #dreamactnow
Share for the day... I wrote a blog post on Seldomseen.co on my last trip to Bali. It’s my personal “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” but on a scooter... riding for only a day... and far less philosophical. Ok it’s basically nothing like that book other than me narrating in first person 🙄 Link’s in my bio ☝🏽
I’m really making photography a focus this year. I shot a ton in 2017 which has been great for my technical development and confidence. This year the focus is on creativity, emotion, and direction. I’m usually not allowed to share images I’ve taken for @seldomseen before we post them but I’m kind of obsessed with this one I took of @raaarrrr from yesterday. It’s definitely the closest I’ve ever gotten to the style of photography I envision myself shooting. Rachel did 90% of the work and it helped that we already enjoy working together :) Check my stories for a few others pre-edit.
Happy Lunar New Year. I’m praying for an end to gun violence, white supremacy, toxic masculinity, and any combination of the three. 🏮🏮🏮
You know that excitement you feel when life is moving in a positive direction and something great is just around the corner and you just can’t wait to put all your energy into it?.... yeah that’s me right now. 2018 is the year 👊🏼
