Revelers set themselves adrift on buoyant objects running the gamut from large inflatable castle to overnight twin mattress in an effort to spend spring break appropriately inebriated.
Goddamn Cobra’s first Cobra Den Invitational with Wakey! Wakey! covering Yeasayer.
I just finished reading Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits by Linda Gordan and got pretty excited about the photographer-writer team that was Dorothea and her husband Paul. Collaboration baby! I suggest you read it. Linda Gordan is a history professor at NYU and takes an academic route in her writing, analyzing events, stating information where primary documents are scarce, which isn’t always the case in biographies.
At the end of the book they mention a grant set up in their names for a writer-photographer team. I’m a fan of collaboration and the cohesion that exists in a piece when information is shared and stories are worked on together.

Jackie didn’t get around much in February, probably because of what you people outside of Southern California call weather. I’m sure she has her reasons, but feel free to shame her into taking more photos this month.
Here is my producing debut. I shot the video on my 5d mark II and then edited it on Final Cut Pro. I only had a 4 gig card, severely limiting what I could shoot, so please excuse the lack of b-roll.
