The Beach and the People it Attracts

Living in a vacation destination can make you jaded to the beauty of the place you live in. I try not to take it for granted. What luck growing up and living near the beach.
The coppers take a woman away for breaking one of the many laws California has on the books. Maybe she was smoking in public.
Dog and car as extension of personality and expression can say alot about you to strangers.
Everybody, look at meeeeeeee! I'm doing stuff. Well, it got me to take 2 photos, and landed you on a website views by a dozen skater kids and (wishful thinking) phototgarphy aficinados. So you win.
The kids love Satan and 666 these days. A new way to be shocking and attract worry from parents I guess. But the logic is flawed. These kids always assume that going to hell means getting to do all the bad stuff you like for eternity, like looking at and fucking naked girls and/or boys, smoking weed, etc. But hell as described in the bible is swimming in lakes of fire and gnashing of teeth. So clearly they don't want to spend eternity in constant torture. Therefore they don't really believe in hell and are just shocking people. Also, in my opinion, the devil is just as ridiculous as the Easter Bunny, the Yeti, and ghosts. Claiming devil worship is basically advertising to all, "Hey, I'm stupid."

Looks like there was a lot of strange people there. But there are strange people there Ed. I cant seem to understand the world. It is awful lately. The universe gives me something to be happy about, and then takes it away. To top it off most people are just ignorant and have no idea what the world was really meant for. Obviously not money and aesthetic shit. Have you ever seen a tortoise? They're absolutely beautiful creatures. I almost shed a tear while sitting next to one. I used to say hail satan and all that stuff, to get a rise out of the lame christian teenagers and such in my town, but now I realize its just as bad as preaching about jesus, etc. Satan is just to strike fear. Same with god I guess. I just dont understand human concepts like I said, they want the most ridiculous and farfetched things to believe in. They just need to find out what the universe and skateboarding is. I hope to see more photos and posts soon.

ideas are ideas. I feel people don't fully grasp the fact that what they have an idea(belief) about may not be what another is thinking because its more or less all in the head.
chance is a special attribute to the universe.

I'll bet that the belief is more often figurative than literal. A hyperbolic expression of disagreement maybe.

Vacation destination.
I don´t live at the beach but in a city that is hardly frequented
by tourists.Especially japanese tourists.
Filling their memory cards with all sorts of gothic looking architecture, christian kitsch and whatever they define as typically german.
Sometimes it is nerve wracking, but mostly I just look at em as prey
for my photographic interests.

The kids always loved satan and 666 shit.
Who actually invented this trend.
The metal bands of the 70´s? Ozzy? Oh, god.
It´s just as meaningless as distorted guitars nowadays.
Thanks, Linkin park.

Three guys needed to escort that little lawbreaker?
I like the way the guy on the second picture squeezes her arm.
Gotta be careful with these girls, they got fake nails and fake lashes
to throw around.Why not preventively knock her teeth out?
You never know where these bleached chompers could end at.

Guys, your cops are pussies.
But you already know that.

Hey Ed! I saw your footage from that recent RVCA demo and I had to come on here to say that you are still ripping it! Keep it up. Love the blog.

Thanks Brian!
S van, use Koln to your advantage!
Bigfoot is tight Jgonz, but sadly fake.

it looks so crowded. I love how slutty and freaky some of these people are. The place looks kinda trashy, just what I love. I wanna go there. Did you guys know that we are helping to digitalize books when we post on this site trough REcaptcha? It's a pretty cool concept.

Bigfoot is fake y'all.
Yeti is real and lives in HB. Call him if you see him, but he doesn't have a cell phone.

Yeah. I made a huge comment a while ago,but my mom closed the browser. now I'm back to try again.

I see that you used water colors to paint your prints while they're wet. Yeah, I'm gonna copy you.
You made the bad human red. Red signifies danger, and black signifies evil while white is pure and clean. But to the chinese white=death. Which I guess makes sense since they make most of our shit.

Cars. I wanted to get a new beetle, but it was too much. and somebody else backed out on selling their 02 jetta. I'm shoppin' around for a vehicle. something small.

Dozen skater kids? is that what I am? ha. jk. so i'm not a photography aficionado? lol they the ones that buy your prints and give you shows. Skater kids. god. I haven't skated in months.
Pappalardo is now my fav skater, 'cause he doesn't skate.
jk. I do like him though, even the current incarnation.
Tables and shit.

Gnashing of teeth. my girlfriend that has a christian family, she told me about how hell was described in the bible. It sounded really metal, and just made me think of Slayer and Skateboarding. all the fun stuff. anyway, you're pretty much calling Lizard King and David Gonzalez dumbasses. I do have hope in my hear that Bigfoot is somewhere out there.
The concept of hell sounds really juvenile.
I guess not caring about the consequences of hell is also seen as stupid from a Christian. blocking out their truth.
