Reckoner



Radiohead, again challenging the record business, has recently released "stems" of their song Reckoner for fans to create their own remixes. I've been listening to a lot of the remixed versions on radioheadremix.com. I liked the remix by Forced Movement (Save the Kids) and Diplo, but there are plenty to check out with over 2,000 tracks uploaded onto their site.

If you're into Radiohead or not, you have to admit they're on to something with the pay what you want pricing policy. I can dig it.

More shots.

Shots from my holga...just for funzies.

These photos were all taken in Montreal. I had just purchased a new holga and was eager to try it out. So these are from my first couple of rolls. I admit, I forgot to take the lense cap off often and not many photos came out how I was imagining them to. I was taking pictures all over the place.


Cody and the cook at this great little Italian restaurante by his house. They are big Cody fans there.


First go at a double exposure in the city.


A day in the park. Good times.


Cody, again.

Plug

"Small ideas will change life habbits."



Creative. Simple. Unplug. Save energy.

SLR

Every once in a while I bring my old camera on a trip with me. I don't expect much from it, but I enjoy winding my film and waiting to see the picture later. None of the photos below are spectacular, or anything special for that matter, but they brought back good memories and moments in time that I had forgotten until now.

S.F.



I just got back from a weekend well spent in San Francisco. I left my house at 4 A.M. on Friday morning for the a Pro Women Athlete's Career Conference. I was thinking, "I'm going to a conference I should dress nice." So I showed up at 8 A.M. with a nice top and my jeans. Little did I know we were going to be working out. I figured I would be fine to work out in my jeans. First lunge I hear a rip. Yes, I ripped my jeans. This was a first for me. The workout that we were all being introduced to is called Cross Fit. It's all about power!

Following this workout session all the ladies were taken over the Fort Mason for the conference. My "nice" clothes were dirty, so I was dressed rather casual at the actual conference. There were amazing guest speakers from many different sports and different angles within the industry of women athletics. I had no idea what to expect from this conference, but I walked away with a lot more than I thought possible. Not only did I get to hang out with a bunch of amazing women, I also got to hear different perspectives on women in sports. It was a powerful conference. I'm glad that I was invited to attend. She Jumps did an incredible job putting the whole thing together. Thanks to Lynsey, Claire, and Vanessa for the invite, to Dr. Kevin Stone for being so hospitable, and to all of the absolutely inspiring guest speakers.

F-22 Raptor

Air Show

I went to the Reno Air Show not long ago. I have never seen anything like it. I had no idea what to expect, but seeing the raptor was worth my money and then some.


The inside of a jet.


There were billions of dollars in planes. No big deal.


The F-22 Raptor, a fighter.


Old and new.

K2 Pink Chase


K2 Skis presents the first annual K2 Skis PINK CHASE fundraiser! This distinctively GLOBAL fundraiser interlaces two important aspects of the lives of K2 women and women all over the world--skiing and wellbeing.

During the month of October, the women of the K2 Alliance (our women development teams) around the globe (including U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan) will ski as much vertical or walk as many kilometers in a given time period on a given day with two goals in mind: to raise as much money as possible for breast cancer research and to have fun and ski their legs off with a big group of their K2 girlfriends! Four different breast cancer research organizations will benefit from all of the money raised from these online fundraisers.

For more information go to http://www.k2skis.com/pinkchase/ and click on Donate Now for more about the cause.

Seattle.

I went to Seattle recently for my cousin's hoedown themed wedding. If you're getting married, I would suggest this as a theme. I've never been to a themed wedding before, but it was a hit. We had line dancing and everything. While I was there, I stopped by the infamous Pike's Market and went to Bumbershoot to check out some bands.

I just read Tony's blog and it sounds like he had a similar weekend. Too bad we didn't run into eachother. It's always fun running into people in random places.

Bridge to Mercer Island. I ended up going to Mercer Island a few times by accident.

Another shot of the bridge.

Fresh flowers at Pikes.

Our friends had this really cool contraption for their flowers.

The end.

I'm constantly traveling. Most of my trips are only for a couple of weeks, but Argentina was for a month and a half. I got adjusted to being there really well. It felt like home. I had good friends and good times. When I left, I felt like I was going on another trip instead of going home. Now that I'm home, of course, I'm happy to be here.


Bariloche by night.


This day was really funny. Nat, Denmark, and I went on a hike. We've all done the hike a few times. It's really pretty simple, but Nat got lost. Denmark and I asked all of these kids if they had seen her. They all sprinted off into different directions calling her name. She finally answered back and she was found deep in a forest of thorns. I don't know how she got there, but thankfully our search and rescue team got to her in time before it got dark. Thanks guys!


The pellet gun was entertaining.


Laguna! Pretty fun zone. Often times we would have this whole bowl to ourselves. Just a short hike from the mountain.

One of the many beautiful views.

The snow in Bariloche is constantly changing. We decided to dig a huge pit with the camp and teach them a little something about snow.

Camp guides Skylar and Alex.

Last minute photos session on the train tracks before leaving.

The long 19 hour bus ride from Bariloche to Buenos Aires. Went by surprisingly quick.

When we made it to BA we went to a super touristy part of town to eat lunch before seeing the kids off at the airport. Sweet camel.

Some more of the touristy part of town.

After the kids left. Nat, a few of the leftover campers, and I went to Ramon's house. He had a sweet mini ramp in his backyard. I don't really skate ever, but the ramp was really fun.

Nat and I left Ramon's and headed into the city. We did some shopping and walking. I did a lot of picture taking.

I like the guys 3-d glasses.

The fat guy has a fork in his head.

Different style.

The colors in South America are brilliant.

Volcano

On May 6, 2008 Chile's Chaiten volcano erupted spewing lava and blasting ash more than 12 miles into the sky. I was in Argentina in mid July and there was a noticible cloud of smoke still present from the eruption. The volcano had been under for 9,000 years. These are pictures from the eruption. I thought they were amazing.
