Waimea Bay

I thought I’d extend my summer a little bit and head to Hawaii for the week. My friend Jasper has been taking our crew around to a bunch of fun spots. You can only jump off this rock when the tide is high enough, so we waited until someone else went first (my feet still touched the bottom).

Be home soon.

    WOW that looks fun! Is that you in the air?

  • I love Waimea Bay. Greta beach when the surf is down. I totally wanted to jump off that rock with a bunch of kids that were doing it but my wife told me it wasn’t a good idea… Now I regret not jumping.

    Actually, that looks TERRIFYING.

  • Sue Kim

    this photo reminds me of Ryan McKinley’s works.
    Amazing!

  • Sue Kim

    Oh, I meant Ryan McGinley.. not McKinley haha

  • cliffjumping is the best thing i know.

  • Christina

    It’s actually really high and scary. Aloha from Hawaii!

  • I jumped off that rock with my brother when I went traveling a few years ago and I’d totally forgotten about it until I saw your pic. Thanks for the flashback.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December

december-600

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
