I'll know my name as it's called again...

Random Meik! photo from the end of a fun night.
Bevy and surf films in the city...
Well super late to the Mumford & Sons Party....
I knew of their two signals and new of them...
But I never put the two together...
One of the surfers had The Cave in their part.
So I finally connected the dots yesterday.
The Cave

Can't go wrong with Little Lion Man

The lyrics sound like stuff I've been singing in the shower...
Good finally catch up on band a year or 2 late...

Train Stops and Fishy Eyes

Figuring out the this whole lens.
It's almost completely manual.
Great picture quality just a bit weird with light and focus.
Maybe I should've gotten the bower instead of the rokinon.
But I'm still happy with it, just need to try it out some more.
I'll drop the cash on the nikon fisheye maybe in 2011.
Back to the am....

Beaches minus Bette Midler


Meik Goes to Maine and Back, originally uploaded by thismeik.

I am not there but I am here.
Little over a week ago we were galivantiing around maine.
Now again I'm back in the studio for a full.
Maybe I'll scheme up some afternoon adventures later.

Oh how the birds soar...
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
Bright as the bushes
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
Beware of the rocks...
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
It be so red
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
Quick they're let their guard down...
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
We run and keep running...

Fence Caps and Beach Knives

I feel like that should be a radiohead song
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
maybe it's a b-side or on a german import.
Trapped in doors for the time to be till the sunsets.
Waiting for night to escape and join some adventure-ets...

Out in the fields with random thoughts


Meik Goes to Maine and Back, originally uploaded by thismeik.

You could probably just lay down and hide here
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
But it gets quite breezy
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
Two different waves
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
When does this change?
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
Calm, Collect, Gather and Rest...
Meik Goes to Maine and BackWait till what may come next

Taking photos through this hole


Meik Goes to Maine and Back, originally uploaded by thismeik.

A closer look, looks closer
Meik Goes to Maine and Back

These images should poignant words and commentarty.
Maybe about oceans, discovery, learning or effort.
Social values or even certain economic stances.
Instead its just the view of on fellow lying on the ground taking photos.
A windy day in november crawling on the ground snappin away.

Happy Thanksgiving!

ha! you didn't see that one coming....

Congrats to Leo Romero Thrasher Magazine 2010 SOTY


Cranberries & Coronas at KCDC, originally uploaded by thismeik.

I almost lost a lens shooting photos to close.
Keep it going Leo

Meik Goes to Maine and gets birdacious


Meik Goes to Maine and Back, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Oh look it's a seafaring bird.
Since I didn't have my zoom lens I walked closer.
Meik Goes to Maine and Back

I like this, but why not frame it a little nicer
Oh not there's a second bird....
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
the plan is compromised...get out, get out
Ohhhhhh the humanity...

Meik, Mallards and a Pug: Meiktales!



Meik Mallards and Pug, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Part of being a human is understanding.
For this you need to really get out there and experience it all.
In my case purchasing random camo gear and cameras.
Being there but not really causing a problem.
You must first be a bass am to be a bass pro.
Hmmmm not totally sure that analogy works.

So this is what I do 30 minutes before a conference call.
That noise you hear in the beginning is me using an owl call.
It gets them buggered but I really need a mallard call.
Although I'll probably get peckered or swarmed next time.

My DP would not stop shaking the cord or pushing me as I was videoing.
Meik Mallards and Pug
Hey looks like someone's getting lucky tonight
Meik Mallards and Pug
A gaggle...
Meik Mallards and Pug
I just these were funny to post for the area...
Because by this it would seem I live out in the sticks...
But alas I do not...And shall be in the city quite soon.
Quack Quack to you mallards...

Meik Goes to Maine and Back: Expired


Meik Goes to Maine and Back, originally uploaded by thismeik.

What do you mean expired?
Oh so it's 2 quarters for 1/4 of an hour.
That's not math that's just some ridiculousness.
Luckily for me this area was free parking anyways.
I like the food, the wind, the weather and the vibes of these towns.
Probably in full season it gets money or douchennial.
But like everything there's good and bad parts.
So with that it's time to move on to the next random thing.

We went to Maine and did some math
I can do this, oh wait there's a free lot 10 ft away...
Don't fall off the cliff

Fisheye Ocean by meik!


Meik Goes to Maine and Back, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Tried out the new Fisheye in some bright light.
Such a nice bright area.
I'd love to go back
And I probably will
I like how these came out but I'll still need more testing
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
Sunny clear sky
Meik Goes to Maine and Back
Some normal lens too

Wood and sand and meik!

Maine by Meik: Boston in 60 Seconds or 4 frames


Maine by Meik Part 2, originally uploaded by thismeik.

This about sums up how long I was in boston.
Riding shotgun and half awake.
I pulled out the camera and snapped rapidly.
When you're riding at highway speed it's hard to focus.

Maine by Meik: Little Compton?


Maine by Meik Part 2, originally uploaded by thismeik.

New England Skies...


Maine by Meik Part 2, originally uploaded by thismeik.

I'll probably be back there soon.
Eat, Drink and be Meik!

Meik goes to Maine: I forget if this was RI


Meik goes to Maine, originally uploaded by thismeik.

I think this random moment was from the cliff walk in RI.
It was a long haul for this trip that I finally got my rest.
You think what your going to see is just feet...
But ta daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, there's a surprise.
