The Downhill Lie


The Downhill Lie



Originally drawn to the game by his father, Carl Hiaasen wisely quit golfing in 1973. But some ambitions refuse to die, and as the years–and memories of shanked 7-irons faded, it dawned on Carl that there might be one thing in life he could do better in middle age than he could as a youth. So gradually he ventured back to the dreaded driving range, this time as the father of a five-year-old son–and also as a grandfather.

“What possesses a man to return in midlife to a game at which he’d never excelled in his prime, and which in fact had dealt him mostly failure, angst and exasperation? Here’s why I did it: I’m one sick bastard.” And thus we have Carl’s foray into a world of baffling titanium technology, high-priced golf gurus, bizarre infomercial gimmicks and the mind-bending phenomenon of Tiger Woods; a maddening universe of hooks and slices where Carl ultimately–and foolishly–agrees to compete in a country-club tournament against players who can actually hit the ball. “That’s the secret of the sport’s infernal seduction,” he writes. “It surrenders just enough good shots to let you talk yourself out of quitting.”

Hiaasen’s chronicle of his shaky return to this bedeviling pastime and the ensuing demolition of his self-esteem–culminating with the savage 45-hole tournament–will have you rolling with laughter. Yet the bittersweet memories of playing with his own father and the glow he feels when watching his own young son belt the ball down the fairway will also touch your heart. Forget Tiger, Phil and Ernie. If you want to understand the true lure of golf, turn to Carl Hiaasen, who offers an extraordinary audiobook for the ordinary hacker.

April Lawyer revealing a cleat




April Lawyer revealing a cleat





April Lawyer (pro downhill mountain bike racer) poster image for Maxxis tires 2007. This image was stitched together from 3 separate images for greater resolution, using Adobe Photoshop CS3. I shot one of the bottom, one middle, and many of the top image to give me choices on expression/look. Realize that this image is stitched, and April couldn't have stood perfectly still on one leg in heels. The capabilities of the new version are AMAZING.

This poster is the followup to our last one that was one of the most popular Maxxis posters ever. This one did well as well, they ran out of them at Interbike.

Lighting info: One Dyna-light pack and head into a large softbox lighting April, another pack with two heads and grids lighting artist Bruce Rubenstein's work on the walls behind.

Mountain Bike Racer





I use to race mountain bikes. A long time ago. This photo was taken by my Dad back in 1994.

Funny story about this particular race. When this photo was taken I was in first place by a lot, like 5 minutes if not more.

Being the confident fellow that I am, I didn't take any flat tire gear with me because it was a two lap race (these were long laps, up and down a huge valley).

On the second lap I flatted on the downhill section. As the uphill section started I picked up my bike and started running. I wound up being passed at this very point which was near the finish line. I took second in that race.

Bummer huh?
