Life by Matt Plunkett

I was informed early today that a friend of mine killed himself earlier this week. The idea anyone would want to end it all is a pretty heavy thought. Went surfing all morning to clear my mind.

Rico's the man, hands down. The purple tint was a mixture of your eyes adjusting to the hue of the couch and Rico's sun burn he got the day before. I liked the tone it left so I kept it. 

Much appreciation to Mike for the amazing location and Guillermo at 424 for the chains.

Shot Carti for RIF.LA earlier today. Kids rad…and it just so happens he's leading the new wave of rap. Shot this at f 4.0 at 100.

This was on my first trip to Rio. One night we stepped out to prowl the city and saw this on a wall…snapped it, and kept walking.

My buddy Nathan shot this one of me a few weeks ago. It was overcast, small, with light winds but we still took advantage of an empty beach and a great start to the morning.

We needed the rain. As crisp and refreshing the air smelled, a dull mist lingered over the city.
