Mr. K............

Your ignorance has now been exceeded by your stupidity.

I have been a professional photographer for most of my life, you know like make money from a skill? Like make a living from it? Do you or can you comprehend this? And by the way I have posted dozens of images on this blog. They drew no attention so I stopped long ago.

You wanna see some of my stuff? Just google any part number for a Willys Jeep, How about a Carter Carburetor 647744 for a start. The first thing you will see on the WWW in the Google Images for that item is a digital image with a watermark across it with the words WILLYS JEEP PARTS. I'll tell you something, that's my photo, along with the ten or fifteen others that follow it. I have a contract with Google that allows them to use almost five thousand detailed images of Willys Jeep parts from my website. In exchange I get an instant link to my website when someone clicks on the image. Today I was shooting pix of three wheel nut wrenches, those pix and a link to my website will be available to anyone in the world with a computer tomorrow. Meaning $$$.

Also, I have nearly twenty thousand Kodachrome photos in Getty Stock photos. I have always specialized in macro images of small animals like insects, reptiles, rodents and birds. Especially little known, rarely seen animals from shit holes around the world, mountain tops in the Andes and Hindu Kush, miserable deserts in the Middle East, North Africa and South America. Not to mention the Jungle. After my US Army days I worked as a media specialist (photographer) for several military contractors producing training media for the military helicopter industry.

I have a photo studio here at my business and use a variety of nearly twenty digital cameras every day. When digital finally got some quality I donated fifty or more Nikon and Minolta 35mm. cameras along with hundreds of lenses to the local Taco Tech Jr. "college" art department. Probably all ended up at the Goodwill.

As for your "without pictures, it never happened" is the dumbest crock of shit cliche I've ever heard in my entire life. Every asshole with a digi-phone is now photo artist? Don't need no fuggin art school? Kinda like every Instagram or Facebook "model", except for the paycheck, oh ya, it's in the mail.

The dumb assed images of someone holding a fish at arms length in front of a device in order to make it look huge passed the cornball stage years ago.

Piss off and die you up tight jerk!

I've seen one picture of you, and that was taken from another boat of you holding up a big White. I had to look hard and twice though, because at first I thought it was a photoshopped picture of Sea Elephant holding up a big White Sea Bass.

The Log from the Sea Of Cortez by John Steinbeck 1951.

Fiction? I doubt it.

JJ
Not fiction for sure, but it was unusual and maybe the only well known work of Stenbeck that was not fiction. It was taken from a log that was written for the most part by Ed Ricketts. "Oddly, it was Ricketts, not Steinbeck, who made the most complete record of their journey, and it has been widely noted that the book would be better described as having been written by Ricketts and edited (albeit heavily) by Steinbeck." A great book, and a wonderful collaboration.

CBSC Derby Second Weekend Update: Took a gamble and it didn't pay off. Wind had to have been gusting 30mph on Saturday and it did not let up, not even for 30 seconds... Stayed out till midnight at Wrecked and it was gusting as strong as is it was the whole day even though windfinder.com showed the wind coming down to 7 - 8 mph by 8am. No chance even though I held out hope. Sunday morning woke up and it was already blowing 15mph at 8am increasing until mid afternoon it started dying enough to launch the jet ski and play around in the calm bay and around the corner to Tucson beach. For fun I took the ski out past Pelican Point and there were straight SETS ROLLING in... big boys. I bet they were 4-5 foot waves from bottom of one swell to the peak of the next wave... I was jumping these waves in double almost. It reminded me of my motocross days... Sad note: broke my DIY transducer mount just below my jet pump because I was scared to drill holes in my transom so Im assuming that the mounting point was taking too much water resistance and broke. It must have broken while I was riding because the FF started beeping and came on with a warning saying transducer signal cut and to turn off FF immediately. Come to find out as soon as the mount broke it ripped the electrical wire straight out of the transducer so I lost the brand new Garmin CHRP transducer which Im sure will be almost as much as buying a whole new setup to replace. Decided to call it a day around 415pm on Sunday and took the ski for one last rip and wouldn't you know it the SEA was finally starting to lay down... I'd even say that it was fishable but we had to get out of town. Loaded up and was out of town at exactly at 610 and was home to Central Phx by 941pm.... No wait at the border and the second (N checkpoint) was closed so it made smooth sailing...

Definitely a waste of gas to lug that thing down and not really use it but live and learn... Hopefully there's one more trip in the near future before it gets too hot.

Joe...............

This cumming weekend looks purrrrrrrrrrrrr-fect.

Loaded up and heading down tomorrow. WWW.WINDTV predicts Zero to 10 mph. thru Monday.

Might mention to the F**kin Ass-Hat above that that the "photo-shopped WSB" was taken on a pass of El Producor". And the still shot from the video was taken by a chick in another boat doing a "real" estate promo of cliff side properties along La Cholla with the camera in squat mode (landscape), to make them look more impressive.

After boating that fish we had to head to the barn cause my fish boxes won't hold something that big without cutting it in half! Since that catch I've nailed three more grandes WSB of similar size at that local. I usually give the WSB's, Corvinas and Toto's to my friend Salvador at the Safe Marina launch. I don't like the taste of them. He gives them to the kids at the orphanage in town.

Tonight doing beer battered Yellow Tail strips with Cajun Yellow Rice and Sweet Corn from last winters haul.

Tight mono and decks awash in sangre de pescado.

Windy and from the SE this morning and white caps showing 1/2 mile out. 1 panga out now.

Still windy? Thanks for the updates! Went by and looked at the property. I remember a long time ago someone asked about those two fishing spots over there and I had joked that Lucky Chucky wouldn't be very happy... I remember you said that's where you were at... you weren't kidding! Many days I fished those two spots with the sidewalk down to the water. Those were my two favorite shore spots. Lots of nice fish have been pulled from that one on the east side of the point. Love the property, million dollar views, best in RP IMHO... I'll shoot you a PM. Thanks again BW!

It was starting to calm down when I left Sat at noon. You can't beat the views or the fishing on Pinto point. The sunsets are killer usually. .
I have so many of them in my photo library.

Friday afternoon looks to be OK, but Sat and Sun afternoon look to be pretty windy. Keeping fingers crossed it stays less than the forecast.

So Joe..........

Saturdays prediction is 40 mph. plus. Monday will be FLAT.

So, I'll just stay here. Planning on cooking up a big pot of West Texas Style Roadkill Chili. I'll be out on the Gila Saturday morning near Hyder with my lever action Henry Golden Boy rifle scrounging up some meat for the pot. A dozen Juancitos (Roundtailed Ground Squirrels), a Thumper (Cottontail Rabbit) or two and maybe nail a Pancake Turtle (Softshell Turtle) basking along the river bank. Get home, skin em, gut em and toss em in the pot till the meat falls off the bones. Along with five pounds of Pinto Beans, couple Onions, a hand full of fresh Garlic and a heap of just picked homegrown Tomatoes from my garden. Some salsa and salt to spice it all up. All simmering over a Mesquite and Ironwood fire.

Wish you could be here!

JJ
I like those Henry 22 mag lever actions..rabbit not so much and as for deer/turtles. I name them...hard to kill when you know the first name
