Before I was repossesed to skate, I was prepossessed to skate. This is a more recent recording of my skateboarding activities prior to the repossession.

This could be where my preoccupation with reporting from the field began. A 2008 Voicethread of my 2004 experience of Dae Borum celebration (The first full moon of the lunar new year) held on Kwang An Beach in Busan, South Korea. Voicethread is a great web 2.0 tool that allows you to sequence a series of photographs and record a narration and/or annotation. Voicethread also allows users to add their own comments in response to your ‘thread. If you can’t view my Voicethread, here’s a rough breakdown of the Dae Borum…
Sorry I’m late. Thanks for watching. The Daily Shoot #ds451 “Make a photograph that features a leading line through it today. Draw the viewers eye through the image.” The Daily Shoot #ds452 “Change your point of view. Make a photograph from an unusual point of view today.” This is the view I saw of my son Alex during his emergency caesarean section on February 10. This point of view could be considered unusual to some. The Daily Shoot #ds453 “Sometimes what’s out of focus can make the shot. Create a…
Visual Assignment 13 brief Take a concept, one word, and plug it into Flickr and take the first 50 images and average them using Photoshop or similar program. Step by step instructions available at http://is.gd/ku3UF Averaging the first eight days of my daily shoot When I started Visual Assignment 13 I had only completed eight days of the ds106 daily shoot assignment. Here is the result. I’m curious about the result of averaging all of the photographs from my daily shoots.
“We all prepare for things every day. Illustrate preparedness in a photograph today.” The Daily Shoot #ds450 – Illustrate preparedness , originally uploaded by Rowan Peter.
Design Assignment 12 brief Take any photo from The Big Picture and overlay it with lyrics from a Top 100 song. Similar to The Big Caption project. ‘I wanna get dusted, I gotta get dusted baby’ For this design assignment I used a photo from The Big Picture’s coverage of the 2011 Dakar Rally and overlayed the lyrics from an old Schoolly D song I wanna get dusted. I wanted to contrast the strict and colloquial use of the word dust.

Visual Assignment 46 brief Write a sentence (preferably somewhat coherent, yet on the nonsensical side), a poem, or a quick story using the titles of songs you have in your Windows Media Player (iTunes may possibly work as well). Print the screen. Paste it in Microsoft Paint (or some higher-end equivalent). Save it, upload it, and share. If you could even respond to the one I originally created as a challenge (possibly even embed it as a comment on that blog entry), that would be even cooler. My playlist story…

“Go abstract today and make a photograph that focuses on form and color rather than detail.” The Daily Shoot #ds447 – Form & colour rather than detail, originally uploaded by Rowan Peter. I’m not sure if this photo focuses on form and color rather than detail as perscribed by the daily shoot’s #ds447 requirements.
