First snow.

Woke up to a dusting of snow outside, before Halloween. Wasn't expecting this but it's very much welcome. I hope this I a sign of a snow heavy winter.

Brian Lotti photo

This photo of Brian Lotti appeared in Big Brother #2, I wish I could recall the photographer to give credit but I'm not exactly sure. I want to say it was Niko but again, I'm not 100% sure. Anyways, this photo is one of my all time favorites. It's not the trick, a simple noseslide on a curb. It's how it looks. The grimeyness. The way it was shot. I don't think I've seen another photo quite like this since. And even if I did I'm sure it wouldn't impact me the way this photo has. I like how you can see all four of the tiny wheels...both trucks...the board...both feet...and the curb (and the little figure inside the drain for good measure). I remember staring at this photo back in the day and wondering if the sticker/photo of the girl under the wheel was his girlfriend. This little detail has stuck with me too, I always have to have some type of sticker under one of my wheels. It's a must. 
This photo is one of the best ever.

October 1st

October, my favorite month of the year. No, not because it's the month that contains my birFday. It's the heart of Autumn. Pumpkin everything. Hoody weather. Power slides through leaves on the road. Snowboarding's right around the corner. Halloween. My wedding anniversary, again, Halloween. BUCTOBER. And yes, my birFday I suppose. 
Today's October 1st. 
Huzzah's are in order!!
