Teaching
November 27, 2009

Today I was one of the mentors helping some prospective students through tasters day which is pretty much where a kid experiences everything{almost everything} in one afternoon. I was pretty stoked since I’ve never “taught” more than maybe two people at a time. Hopefully everybody had some fun and will strongly consider joining the Falmouth Sportswear Department.

All the groups had to pick a muse to base their designs off. My group chose Lady Gaga. Long story short: Lady Gaga is in the secret service{ergo she wears sunnies all the time} and she went to the Queen’s garden party to protect her majesty from any ninja assassins. The dress we designed would theoretically be made completely out of bulletproof kevlar.

After finishing off the taster day I headed over to Aside to chill out and look through their library. Here’s a reflection of Ross’s screen while he checks the surf forecast for this weekend.

Not Quite Black and White

So I was going to post a bunch of BW’s on here but as I was photoshopping I thought, why not try to “cross process” a black and white picture? Here are the results:

Today we went to the Shed to celebrate Mette’s birthday which was about two months ago. I gave her a scostache for her prez. She loved it.

Hazel having some fun.

Tom eyeing is drink.

Awesome light at the shed.

I now know that basecoat does do what I denied it would do. Oh yeah I’m not longer in the Shed. {I got the peace sign idea from Mr. Kopatz}

Yesterday was the first time I ever surfed Swanpool beach. It was uber offshore and the crowd factor was redic. There were no rules any more. People were dropping in on one another left and right.

curtains scosurfWhile I was working on my laptop I looked at the window. Thought the texture in the curtains would make a cool shot with some backlight.

gylly-mini-right scosurfWe left the house pretty early and checked Swanpool. It looked rank so we checked Gylly and saw this mini right but weren’t too keen.

blue-shades scosurfWe went to Jan’s afterwards. Had another opportunity to shoot another window. Sick shade of blue.

coasters scosurfJan’s girlfriend picked up some coasters with wicked illustrations on them.

way-to-the-park scosurfWe booked tickets for 2012 which was an awesome movie. Since we had 2 hours to kill we went for a skate at the Maritime parking lot.
