Lake Villarrica

Now that school has started I doubt I'll have a chance to make too many new images. I'll probably post quite a few "year ago today" images through Feb, like this one of a homeless man walking on the black volcanic shore of Lake Villarrica in Pucon, Chile. I wonder if he made this same walk in the summer sun today. More after the jump...

Lucky Peak, Idaho

It is too cold for this fish. Looking forward to tilting closer to the sun. More after the jump...

Old Town Iquique

When the saltpeter mines outside of Iquique Chile cranked massive amounts of money into the local economy in the early part of the 20th century this barrend desert port city imported massive amounts of lumber from the Oregon coast.

Drifter Smith

The second time I took Ed Abbey down the river I pulled him off to the side at the put-in and told him that I no longer went by Stuart. I told him that I had changed my name to Drifter. Ed Abbey looked at me and asked, "Is it all right if I call you Drift?" I said, "Surely a man of your literary talents can spare a syllable." He looked at me and said, "Words are money my friend, words are money."

First Video

Got bored/frustrated with my lame Canon S7 and stills, so I took some video and slapped this together in imovie. No real need to do a movie again. It got cropped and overexposed on upload too. More after the jump...

Camas Prairie

If I ever win the lottery I'll buy the old homestead land where my great great grandfather and great grandfather grew wheat. Like James McMurtry said however, "Don't like farming, can't take the hours," so maybe I'll put a little strawbale house out there, grade out a runway, and spend a winter building a Rans S6.
