The Apprentice

Rin Hutcheson is definately a little up and comer in the Freo skate scene to keep an eye on. Hes only 13 but skates like someone much older. Unlike a lot of kids his age that just tend to throw themselves down the biggest set of stairs they can find, Rin can skate any ledge or transition and with the speed and style to make it look good as well. He seems to be pretty unlucky with injuries at the moment sadly so hasnt been shredding as much, but i have been trying to teach him how to use a camera... give him something else to do while hes out and about for now. heres a little collection of mixed media i had lying around of Rin.

Mans best freind?

I dont like this dog, and he doesn't like me.
Every day i skate to work down this quiet little bush track to the beach i have been attacked by this angry little mut. I meen we know some dogs hate the sound of the hard wheels smashing along the bitumen but this is insane. He is the gaurd dog at some industrial yard i go past and from nearly 100 meters away i have been gauranteed to see this thing coming flying around the corner and strait for me trying to tear my ankles off until i am forced to get off my board. Anyway i needed to finish off a roll after shooting some maysive hammers so thought id get try get some of the pup, was not easy taking a photo of something that would not stay still constantly circling and snapping... My old dog used to be terrified of cameras he would run and cowar at the sight of them, and seems this one may have been the same. I dont know if the dog now associates the sound of the skateboard with the soul stealing lense i carry around but i havent been hassled by the thing since!
there is a few other arty photos at woolies from the batch as well, including some of some nice treats Dom brought back from Melbourne.

Wildlife

Im at my mums for lunch and noticed she still has quite a few decent sized frogs in here pond. My cat Cali tends to catch them and leave them dead on the living room floor along with birds and possums that iv heard about her hunting down aswell...
Theres hundreds of tiny tadpolls in there now aswell so she should have a lot of fun this summer.
Heres the only frog that didnt run away when i went out with my mums camera to get a flik no wonder they get eaten when they just sit on the rocks like this.

Houghton Ensign

This has got to be my trendiest post yeti would say.
This photos are absolute shit, they were basically an experiment with a Houghtons Ensign 2 1/4B.Box from the 1920's.
Alberts dad found the camera in one of his tenants backyards or something and so i was lucky enough to get my hands on it and have a play. Turns out its only worth $10 or something even with its antiqueness. It did have a few things wrong with it that im working on fixing up, the thing that i gues would be like a dark slide had come off and one of the rollers for the film snapped a pin so its a bit loose. Plus i had to take the whole thing apart to fix the shutter. But the whole camera is so basic in every way its just fascinating seeing how much cameras have changed.
Il have to take some photos of the box so you can see what im talking about sometime.
but anyway these photos are shit and to make things even trendier i chucked my bike in there...
The shutter speed is stupidly slow so nothing is verry sharp and the focus seems to be set more for long landscape style shots then close up stuff.
im sure il put a few more rolls through it before i get sick of wasting my time and money, but for now this is it.

Poaching the Lynx

Quayde Baker may be one of the easiest people to take a photo of while hes on his board, with so much style and talent he would have something for nearly any spot.
Getting a decent portrait photo of him on the other hand is a completely different matter. The second he sees a camera on his face hes outa there.
I managed to catch him with his gaurd down after destroying a certain secret spot.








If you wana see more Quayde check him out here on the GMTA site.

Postcards from Sydney

If your'e on my blog im sure you realised i was away in Sydney and Melbourne for the last 2 weeks. Being such a tourist in Sydney i took lots of photos and if you were lucky enough you would have received a limited edition Aidan White Photography postcard.
Its looking like some of them were lost in the post (not yours albert you just didnt get one)
i scanned them all up last night so you can all check them out anyway see what everyone else got and all that i cant remember all of who got wich ones but they should all be there.
i think theyr kinda big files so might take a while to load.
