Barcelona for the NY Times 8

Earlier this year I went to Barcelona with the New York Times Style Magazine, "T," to shoot photos for a travel story revolving around the fact that Barcelona has historically been a hub of Skateboard, Art, and Graffiti culture. Sadly, the article (and hence my photos) will never run because of staffing changes at the magazine. So I will do a series of posts sharing the photos I took on that trip to Spain this April, 2012.

Posted November 29th, 2012 by Yes the leg is fucking up my life.
I never broke anything in my life except for promises and the law
so what do I know how tough it can be.But everytime life shows it´s ugly side I ask myself "What would Bruce do?" (Springsteen, not Lee or Wayne)
No surrender........
I´m just shit talking.

Good to see you´re making progress.Get well, Ed.

These are phots far from boring, they've been a big source in my entertainment since I lost my job.
A great way to kill time

And as for BA in pretty sweet.
So glad he's doing bonelesses! So sick in my opinion

Oh and as for the Newton quote, while couch-ridden I reccommend the Noam Chomsky lecture "The machine, the ghost, and the limits of understanding: Newton's contribution to the study of the mind"

www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5in5EdjhD0

The lecture runs about 45mins, it's fun to take notes and doodle while listening and it's nice to hear Chomsky on something a little less political and "urgent" than usual

The next toy board should be your leg.

The beach looks incredible. Way to go, nature! haha

Outdoor couches. I hope they take those cushions in at night, I get weird about that shit. Between rain and bugs, I don't love it, but it looks really nice and probably was awesome to sit in.

Foldedshirts, some of those photos are awesome.
I wish it weren't always so gloomy here, it's nearly impossible to take photos unless it's the summer or you want to shoot at f/1.4

Silas Baxter Neal gets down with Toy Machine socks.

Anyone else remember that post where we had to guess who was wearing Toy Machine socks?
Posted By: Mike on December 2nd, 2012 at 03:16PM PST
Yea I remember that post with Silas!

Ed, would you sell me some of your old/used leg bandages? Lol if not you should put it on eBay.

I've always wanted to skate at the school where Silas does that front blunt 360, it's in Portland about 15 minutes away from me and I've still never done it
The ground, ledges, and benches all look so smooth and perfect
