Coffee Cat is #bokehlicious . YAASSSSSSSS Sneaking in under the wire... he zigs, he zags, he dodges, he drinks his face off at Henflings (a biker bar in the Santa Cruz Mountains) and yet he still makes it in time.. MUAHAHAHAH. Sorry, I may have gotten carried away. Uhmmm so Coffee Cat is a coffee joint (figured that part out did ya? Oh good) where a bunch of us are gathering tomorrow to send off +Ed Sweeney who will be moving to Washington. Santa Cruz will be less weird without this guy. Which means that now I have to try even harder to Keep Santa Cruz Weird. It's a rough job, but somebody's gotta do it.

I had a point. I'm almost sure of it.

uhmmmm. #bokeh  . there. That oughta do it.

THIS makes me glad. There is nobody I'd rather see in this seat.

Google Photos reminded me about this today. A year ago a big bunch of us gathered at Mitchell's cove for a paddle out to remember Shawn "Barney" Barron. Flea is holding up a container of Shawn's ashes as members of the surfing community circled, holding hands. Flea said some kind words (ok, shouted them) and the crowd closed in. Flea shook out the ashes and everybody pounded the water, mixing the ashes with the ocean. We smiled, laughed, cried, you name it, it happened. I've seen small paddleouts, but never anything like this. Everybody misses this local legend.

I usually have a camera with me. Today I wandered around a local community college that is undergoing some construction. There was just enough cutting, grinding, and welding to create some interesting images.

There's this spot not too far from my home in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It has moments of incredible beauty with views extending to the ocean. I'm more fond of the little details though. Honest, this was my commute to work today :) . Be good humans folks.

Story
Tagline
Exquisite combination of nerd and artist. --Leo Deegan
Introduction
I take pictures and break stuff. Sometimes in the same session. I'm a friendly guy from around Santa Cruz,CA. I work in technology and am a photographer on the side. I love anything creative. That can be fooling around with code or making a photograph that captures the imagination. 

My favorite photography subjects almost always include people. They also usually include rocks & water. So... mix in people. rocks, & water and you get a lot of surf photography from around Santa Cruz. Who knew?

Thanks for reading my story. Thanks also for following and commenting. Constructive feedback is always welcome.
Bragging rights
The truth is way more interesting than any fabrication. I don't need to exaggerate a damn thing.
