Cold Harbor

3 hour flight from Anchorage, about two thirds of the way to Dutch and our turn around. The weather is socked in at Unalaska and we are flying back to ANC. The waiting game begins.

Frontier Air

One of the greatest thing about leading the adventure life is the way you get there. 1743 Local time, first attempt to reach "Dutch".

En route to Alaska.

like the portrayal of the deep west in "Dead Man Walking" the further you head toward the frontier the more peculiar the crowd. Anchorage is a freight hub and destination. You will only notice how deep you go when you transfer to a puddle jumping service.

I usually only feature my work. Not because it is better but that this is a Pumalogy venue rather then an amalgam of random images. But rules are sometimes broken and the following visual piece is truly inspiring! I you are pursuing your dream, and have doubt, this piece will revitalize your soul. Thanks you Mickey Smith for creating "The Dark Side Of The Lens".

I believe in the pursuit of the soul, and it is a difficult endeavor at times. But I would never trade it in for anything. The "dark side of the lens" is why. On a more intellectual note, this short film symbolize the beginning of something new. Profound though, amazing images and adventure sports come together. You can't even call it extreme sports or adventure, rather they are a practice. It is a practice in the zen sense that involves a dance with the elements. And when great meaning gets expressed in the most artful way you have a stunning inspiration.

Inside and out.

I delved into my archives because I am working with a film crew from New York City. I love New Yorkers, they are smart funny and not too caught up on looks. Even when you're shooting a fashion event. It is more about the art. There is an ephemeral culture that bleeds in between each other. I'd say consciousness is shared, blurring the concrete boundaries we have defined for our bodies. For example if your group of friends and coworkers have a certain world view, let's say they love Sarah Palin, you might adopt some conservative ideas where the sphere of your awareness crosses over with others. And in a very dense city you are constantly close and near the most creative ideas. So much so that your taste is acute but you take it for granted. Because you don't see it as separate. That's why when you go to a small town art is shitty, and when you work with New Yorkers you feel a rush of hurried and cutting energy.

Here are some spaces from before, inside and out.

It's windy at 5240m.

At the end of June 2010 only one group got out of camp. The wind got increasingly worse throughout the day forcing group after group to return after attempting to descend. You know it's bad when you can't go down.

Willie Prettie, Alpine Ascents International's lead Guide, was looking for a way, and a break in the wind to see if was possible to go down. Out there while everyone else was huddled in their tents, Willie looked like a Yellow Denali Yeti.

Willie, the next day leading clients down after a successful summit bid. Mount Hunter is in the background and Windy Pass on the lower right side of the image.

It's not about resolution; the meaning of Aesthetic is about lines. I love simple lines. I love them.

Vice Broadcasting Systems

Are they promoting Vice Magazine? If you don't know what hip under the cover MTV owned media source I speak of, look for and you will understand the irony of this image.
