Snow Last Year

Snow Last Year

November 29, 2011

Sorry about the two weeks between blogging, I had a little bit of trouble posting last week.  Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Anyway, we seem to be in an odd season right now, some sort of transition between summer and winter that's supposed to be Autumn seems to have transitioned right into a Spring.  The temperatures are mild, there's sun and some rain, but the typical indicators of Autumn are completely MIA.  Not that I'm complaining about the incredible weather and the ability to go outside without a jacket, but it is a little odd given we are just a few days away from December.  Perhaps Mother Nature is just making up for that blizzard on Halloween?

I got some time in shooting large format, but of course it'll be a little while before you all see what comes from those slides.  In the meantime, I went through my archive to see what I was shooting around this time last year, and I came up with some cross processed film from last December.  Snow in Wickford.  I've always felt that if there's going to be temperatures around or below freezing, there might as well be some snow on the ground.  Not that I'm rushing into winter or anything, haha.  I definitely am enjoying my time with this mild November!

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season.  Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells.  We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F.  But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.

Board Portraits // Experiments

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.
