Before summer became winter and we skipped fall here in Chicago, I explored some roof set ups with Kachinsky.

Polaroid film is complex.

Everyone loves playing around with instant film, so get educated a bit with this video that shows the complexity of the film and some of the manufacturing process.

We got a hot tip on a big square pool out east, about half way to Vegas. Dak, myself, Gary Young and Calvin Cosovich packed up the car with brooms, buckets and bikes and headed out into the barren wasteland on the I-15 and followed our directions to this perfectly bone dry square pool with a little bit of over vert in the deep end and pretty amazing pocket airs. There were a bunch of old dirt bike tires everywhere and they ended up being featured very prominently in one of the action photos we shot with Dak in the pocket for one of his next Vans ads. You’ll see soon enough.

Later that day we ended up at some antique store that had a bunch of Nazi war memorabilia and I ended up with a stack of old surfer magazines from 1983 for two bucks each that are still keeping me entertained with the most kooked out ads and blonde mustaches you could ever imagine. Calvin was the filmer that day and he had a blonde mustache as well. That’s what made me think of all this. I can’t grow a mustache so I hang out with guys that can.

I had a friend send me a link to Eddie’s site recently, and I was really digging his photo work. I had seen some images floating around tumblr, so some looked pretty familiar to me…but there were a lot more gems to be seen. Looking at his site it seems he dabbles in some video and more….go give it a look!

Also speaking of tumblr give the defgrip tumblr a follow!

Anthony DeRosa wowing a crowd of kids doing wheelies on department store mountain bikes last summer in Philly; shot on my dads old Minolta X-570 loaded with some Kodak Portra 400, probably at f/8 or so and a shutter of 1/1000th.
