A friend of mine recently came out to Colorado to catch the first few weeks of the new season before heading back to Michigan to catch the start of their season. Bringing the Midwest luck with him Luke arrived to a snow covered Denver as we had just received a second fall storm. After an interesting day of attempting to film, a trip to the ER (not for us) and some epic mini shred, Luke still wanted more. So off we ventured through neighborhoods and up mountain sides looking for something, anything that looked like it could help us have fun on our snowboards. Finally, we stopped at the base of a very worn out looking sled hill and Luke giving me the look that says “well, how bout it?” stepped out of the car. Here we are on the edge of the Mile High city, at the base of the Rocky Mountains and of all the places we could have chosen to go snowboarding, we picked this haggard looking hill. Turns out, it was the best pick of the day. Dodging mini boulders and cacti, we dropped in on the sled hill and a blast of nostalgia hits…
Finally, I have a camera to call my own, a Canon T2I. The other week I went up near St. Mary’s glacier, Eclipse to be exact, and shot some photo’s of snowboarding and scenery to test out the new camera. Unfortunately a few of the shred photo’s are up in the mix here and there, so I’ll keep those on the DL for now. In the meantime check out some of my favorites from the journey.
I finally got the chance to develop the third and forth rolls of film from my camera the other day. Here are some of the highlights. One of these photo’s resulted in a blood bath and my finger needing five stiches, which one?
I got a new toy for my birthday this year, a fisheye camera. It’s pretty much a point and shoot 35mm, but it’s got a few tricks hidden up the sleeve. There’s a manual exposure option, a multiple exposure option and a pre-set shutter speed option. Might not sound like much, but it certainly makes for some fun, interesting photo’s. That being said, here are few highlights from the first two rolls.
