Ms. Lady Ripper

EDIT: Guess I got on the wrong side of some photog with these pics. A Mr. Randy Wright who shoots great pics daily it seems. Sorry man, the internet is a big and wonderful thing and I guess I can't put a picture that I didn't shoot in my journal on the internet. I see a lot of the same shots on many sites, but they must all be getting paid. What a gig! What is the difference if you grab a picture from the web for your collection of "cool surf shots" and play it as a screensaver? More people probably see that than this dumb little journal I keep. Is that wrong too? How do people put up music songs on their sites? I guarantee they are not paying the artist. I am all for you getting as much money as you can for your photos, you deserve it, but to cry and complain over a little surf site where I write my ramblings seems a little extreme. Oh well. Sorry. I apologize. Don't need your snaps.

Most people would be stoked to see their picks show up on some stoked surfers site.

Off to get a sunset seshy as the swell seems to be still here!!

This girl was r.i.p.p.i.n.' the other night in the windswell mush. Stylin' bottom turns to quick snaps. Using every part of the wave. Big floaters where I would have punched through the wave. Grace. Flow. Beauty. Smilin'. Schwackin'. In love.

Sorry Randy if I offended you. I was just stoked on your pics but now they don't look as good to me anymore. Good luck with your photography.

Hey Pushingtide,
Thanks for your apology...
When I first checked out your blog, I was very impressed with the skill of the person who shot all of these beautiful surfpix, which I thought and assumed was YOU!
Until I saw the above images, which I had indeed shot one crappy night at Bay Street in Santa Monica...
Sorry if you felt like I was givin' you a hard time, but seein' how we aren't pals, buddies, etc., and you didn't have the courtesy to even ask if you could post these crappy surfpix of mine on your blog, I took offense to your doing so...
And I had every right too...

You write nice, wity stories about surfing...

I have a gallery of about 15,000images...
Would you be mad if I started copying your verse to make my gallery surfpix look better and more interesting?
Without first introducing myself? Without asking for your permission?
And then not crediting you for the material I would use for free, just because I too have a gallery/blog and also find the internet is a big and wonderful place?
Some people feel a sense of entitlement, but ya know, others don't...
And after hooking up lots and lots of people in the LA area with some free surfpix the last coupla years, I don't like it when a stranger feels he is entitled to use my sh!t without asking...
Surf on...

That was no apology. That was a "Sorry I got busted. I don't need your shit anymore, anyways."

Word spreads and karma is a bitch.

Cool Randy. Sorry again. I understand more now.

And it was an apology there big brianoc. I just really didn't think it was wrong to put up a couple little pics on my dumb little surf journal. I just try to find pics that convey my stoke of the day and session.

Maybe in the future I could put up some of your pics to spread the stoke, even the crappy surf days which are sometimes the most fun, but of course by asking the photog's permission now.

Hope you got some fun ones over the weekend Randy.

I'm seeing the bar raised quite high by the local chicas around here, both in and out of the water :D
