This past Thursday I recieved in the mail my shipment from REI. Enclosed were a pair of the Vibram FiveFingers Shoes that allow you to run as close to barefoot as possible without cutting yourself on a junkies crack needle on a Hollywood run. I’ve been building up my mileage as of late, and 10 miles has been pretty easy for me to do at a Jaunt. When I went to REI to test out the shoes in person the sales person told me that to run 1/10th of your usual distance. That you’d hurt yourself/be in pain the next day if you didn’t heed her warning. I being one to go against solid advice and instead prove out what I was capable planned a 3 mile run to 7-11 to drop off some drop box dvds and pick up a new one. I barely made it there without feeling one of the most intense calf burning pains. I picked up my new dvd..and barely hobbled back home where I made my neighbor give me a calve massage as she is good at that sort of thing. It is now four days later and my calves finally feel ok. Going to go on Run 2 in these bad boys, wish me luck! I’m hoping to get used to these things quicker then the half a year time they say it takes.
I just finished watching Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Even though movies are such…fluff. They make you feel good and allow you relive/remind all the best moments of love. It seems like I’ve had to fight for every incredible woman I’ve met only to have life throw some curve ball eliminating a chance of something working out.
On the upside I have never had an issue with fucking beautiful women…she dating them and calling them my own. So I guess I’ll just focus on what matters…sex and my career..nothing else. I’m going to pretend like I don’t know how to love
This blog has always been a quiet platform to escape to writing down my thoughts and stories of various love circles, sexual experiences, and new friends met. While this won’t change too much, my focus will be more image driven in my posts. I’m a photographer, I travel, its best I take lots of photographs and share them to you all.
Touching back a couple posts on how I met this interesting woman from Sweden…
She carried this tiny black digital camera everywhere and took tons of images. After using it a bit I was really surprised at the capable nature of that camera. It really took ridiculously awesome photos. When she told me the camera was 4-500 dollars I thought she was exaggerating the price of it…
Turns out she was spot on. Not a cheap camera, but as Ken Rockwell raves…the BEST point and shoot out there. End of story. I’m inclined to agree.
Here are some random images taken with it when we adventured around together.
P.S. very last image is taken with my wonderful film camera. Can’t do a post with just digital pics now.
Today has been awesome overall. It started a bit slow waking up to gloomy weather and attempting a bike ride to Malibu…which lasted…5 min? I turned around and went back home…the slight wind chill and bleak clouds overhead really sucked my motivation out of me.
As I rolled up my driveway I got a text from a friend who wanted me to meet him @ the pump station. I then headed into the mix of WEHO and had peanut butter soft serve and brownies. We caught up on our talks of love and conquests…and talked some business regarding an event coming up that State Farm (he does their marketing) is sponsoring. As I was leaving I got a phone call from an actor I was supposed to shoot in Silverlake. He was coming back from Studio City and wanted to meet up at The Kings Road Cafe. I headed over there next and joined him for some lunch. We spoke about all the different areas that one can live in and how he’s found happiness in Silver Lake with his wonderful girlfriend.
After our food we went back to my place, grabbed a couple cameras and went out to shoot some portraits around town. I hope you enjoy.
