LOST is a creative well

Premiere of Season 6 of LOST is now weeks away. These posters just reminded me — one of the things I love about the show is that can inspire such creativity.

Brigitte at 6 months by Nancy

Nancy and Craig were super nice and came by to baby sit Brigitte for 3 hours on Saturday. Linda had arranged it as a surprise so we could get out and have a “downtown date”.

So great. Brigitte loved them and I think she sold them on parenthood ;-)

Nancy took a couple shots while she was over — this one is beautiful.

Kind Lines benefit starts tomorrow

kindlines

Amazing art for a great cause.

“Kind Lines is an art show and auction to benefit Surfaid International. The event, to take place in September of 2009 in NYC, was created by Rick Malwitz, of the Brooklyn-based Malwitz Custom Surfboards. Malwitz wanted to raise money for Surfaid in a creative, fun way that would celebrate surf culture and art. When he started asking artists within the surf community if they would be interested in donating a painting for the event, the response was overwhelming. In the end, 24 artists were selected to participate. Malwitz hand-shaped and bamboo glassed canvases, each resembling a cross-section of a surfboard, and distributed these to the participants. The rules were simple: any medium, any style, any surf-related theme. In September, these 24 original works of art will be featured at gallery in NYC, and an online auction will follow. The auction will be open to anyone, and is a great way to collect original art from some of the most brilliant surf artists. 100% of the proceeds go to Surfaid. Thanks to the sponsorship by Greenlight Surf Supply, Surf Source, and Swaylocks.”

Online Auction is between September 26 – October 4th , 2009

Jim Driver and surfing CA in the 60’s

img183

Great blog to keep an eye on — Jim’s son has been posting some of his Dad’s photos and he’s already got some great shots up.

“During the early 60’s, surfing took off around the world. It was during these days that my father, Jim Driver, started getting interested in photography. During the day, Jim caught rides to the beach and photographed many of Southern California’s surfing inovators. At night, in his darkroom, he carefully developed his photos into classic images that captured the 60’s style.”

iPhone tops all cameras on flickr

iphone_small

Crazy when you think about it — right now it’s neck and neck with the far superior Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. View large version of graph above.

Apple didn’t just win the Smart phone wars — they won the Point and Shoot wars (at least on flickr).
