brave the cold

There’s one thing they neglect to mention in the Oregon Visitors Guide: the water is frickin’ freezin’ here. Lauren and I went to beach right after we moved here. It was the middle of July on probably the hottest day of the year. We were all set to dive in when we noticed all the surfers were wearing full body wetsuits. Huh, that’s weird. One toe in the water later and I had a brain-freeze headache like I just pounded a 32oz Slurpee. Brrr…

Last Sunday, I was at the Oregon Coast for a portrait assignment for Saturn Signatures. I got down there an hour early to find a good location.

I mean, you’d have to be crazy to drive a sports car on the beach.
