Waves Posted by Picasa
I borrowed some energetic graffiti for this one as an algorithm for turbulent water.

Paddling for sushi

paddling for sushi Posted by Picasa

I’ve started working on a new series of paddling collages. When the tide is favorable to paddle North on the Hudson we sometimes paddle to a big Japanese mall on the New Jersey side called Mitsuwa. We walk in, dripping wet, in our paddling gear. Some of us carry our paddles. We get a table by the window so we can watch our boats. Hot miso Soup and raw fish gets a cold paddler ready for the trip home.

Rolling in anger

Rolling in anger Posted by Picasa
When we learn to roll a kayak in a swimming pool or other friendly conditions that's one thing but when really rough conditions knock us for a loop and we find ourselves upside down when we want to be right side up that is an entirely different matter. These are the conditions that cause us to roll in anger.

Surfing down a wave

A concrete expression of a recent memory of surfing the waves at Breezy Point. I always wear a PFD (personal flotation device- Life jacket) but it was not part of my minds eye vision of the event and it would have broken up the composition. I use a Euro-paddle but Greenlandic paddles look better. Maybe the waves were not quite this steep but then again maybe some of them were and some of them certainly felt this steep. Lead, oxidized brass, painted concrete, painted steel ship hull.
