Keepin' up with the times...

So I decided that it was high time for me to sell my soul to the devil keep up with the times of photography. Below is an image I took and (basically butchered) tweaked a little bit; I just (oversaturated) helped the colors, and added some (absurd and impractical) subtle (I don't have a Holga or any other means of drawing natural attention to the subject) vignetting, (not to mention there is no highball like this at Way Lake so I had to crop Jeff off a picture of Natalie V8, shrink him and put him back on the same problem to get "the feel" I was going for).

Note - I do actually have a Holga and it creates really artistic, natural vignetting... I find it interesting that the more we move forward in technology, the more we strive to be old school cave-people...

Now that's out of the way... there is a new addition to the Eastside Bouldering crew (that is, if Abbie ever allows her to visit the Eastside)... I give you; Sad Daisy...


Daisy being sad that she is no longer the token barnyard animal of the Eastside crew... poor little pig dog...

No but really, we have a new dog. Her name is Sadie (which I would like to add is just a hodge podge of the sounds that make up the name, Daisy). She is a mix of Jack or Parson Russell terrier and hobo and goat... BEHOLD!!!

... and then Derek Spencer came to California (and by "and then" i mean prior to everything else in this blog, since it is exactly backwards)


Derek has made the Sierra angry...

There has been climbing, but I couldn't care less... stupid shoulder...

Sweet... you finally got photo editing software... now you can submit pictures to Climbing Magazine... I think you forgot to edit out the pads, but good job getting the spotters out of there.

I didn't realize Organic made such big bouldering pads. Where can I purchase one?

Cute, cute, cute! How is Daisy holding up? Our dog can't stand it when someone pays more attention to our chickens than to him... He turns green with envy.

We have been very conscious of treating Daisy as if she is still #1... although it is hard, since Sadie is pretty cute... Daisy is actually pretty psyched; they play ALOT
