Joe don't Ya know that I wouldn't even know if the "insta boys" are messing with me. I do not pay attention to the social medias.

The shit shack. When the shit is about 5 feet below ground level, you got to start again. You dig a new hole, somewhere else. You move the old shack onto the new hole. And fill in the old hole. Less than about 4 or 5 feet of dirt on top of a shit pit is the minimum.

For some reason, when people die, other people want to help. So when my friend Chris was killed in an avalanche, his widow ended up with quite a bit of cash. They had no kids and Chris was insured. So there was extra money. And Chris always wanted a cabin. And Chris and all of his friends are either helicopter pilots or construction guys. So the cabin is a beauty. On crown land. Open for all people. I rarely spend the night, but I have been up there a bunch over the years for day trippin.

Snow and winter. I love it a lot.

Photoshopped as it touched up some color or light possibly. Photoshoped as in it didn't happen it might be time to leave.

So nobody has to guess...

I don’t own photoshop. So nothing a shoot is photoshopped.

My photos generally have a clean vibrant appearance that not everyone likes because beauty really is in the eye.......

If your camera or phone shoots a JPG image there is an algorithm in there that adjusts the colours etc and interprets how it might look best automatically. It guesses at what would make a pleasing image.

Folks who shoot as enthusiasts or as professionals will generally shoot RAW. This means the camera has interpreted nothing. And the image needs to be processed in software such as Lightroom. I indeed use Lightroom to process my RAW images to adjust exposure, highlights, shadows, contrast, etc. It’s for all intents a virtual darkroom. It does not offer photo manipulation tools.

My style isn’t for everyone and that’s what makes it a style.

Besides that... whoever doesn’t like it is just wrong.

Photoshops internal raw set up is pretty darned good now too. Biggest benefit to Lightroom these days to me is file management.

Love the photos that Jake puts up here.
As a unicyclist, I wouldn't be trying that!!
Still get the Yike out every so often after a few glasses of wine or whatever...
Pure entertainment.

There is a cat in Bellingham that rides Uni mtb like a crazed madman. No matter what the weather is like he can be seen shirtless and padded up jamming around. I have seen him up at Galbraith in the snow FFS same... no shirt ripping it up.

I’m pretty sure Photoshop is the superior tool... I sorta stick to Lightroom because I’m old and like things simple... and it’s also nice to be able to difinitively say “no it’s not photoshopped”.

I think the entire adobe creative suite is like pennies more than buying just Lightroom so it’s purely out of spite and stigma that I don’t own photoshop and the rest of it.

There was a guy in Fontana that would run the DH courses on a uni... f*cking nuts imo, I have zero interest in one wheel action, but damn impressive to see someone manage it.
