a few pics from a big sur road trip last fall. the whole drive was beyond comprehension.
unexpected bonus: i never thought i would see pebble beach outside of a tiger woods video game! it's not pictured here (tease), but amaze! i can see why rich people like it.
Sylvia vive en el parque de eco y tiene una vida doble – asistente legal de día y toca vinil de noche. Cada vez que toca en una chamba, nos ponemos a mover la colita y sudamos como cochinitos! También prepara una riquísima carne asada, aunque diga que la compró ya preparada de la tienda … Como dice ella, "es bien chingon!"
and for the gringos...
sylvia lives in echo park and leads a double life: paralegal by day, playing vinyl by night. every time she plays a gig, we shake our booties like mad and sweat like piglets. she also makes a mean carne asada, even if she says she bought it that way from the store. as she would say, "that shit is tight!"
i am bad at editing, so i had to add a couple more of gramber. editing is my job, i know. shut it.
this was a quick snap for a shall-not-be named vampire series we were working on a while back. charlotte and i share an office and an unhealthy addiction to internet sample sales. she is a southern belle, a real texas lady.
jillian is my favorite miss bundle-of-contradictions. she is tough but sweet, femme but hard, metal and pop. she was also the first of my friends to volunteer for a studio portrait sesh. thank you, jilly!
cam is super. he let me push and pose him like an oversized figurine. thank god jill was there to talk his ear off about metal bands or he might have noticed and gotten grumpy. he rides a lot of mopeds, but i don't know much about that because i'm not very cool. he also has awesome taste in music and smiles a lot. like i said, super!
j-childs resides in new hampshire, or vermont, or both kinda. she lives with her (awesome!) boyfriend and (even awesome-er!) dog, surrounded by green. she gets to do fun things all the time, like kayak, and hike, and drink b-wheat by a fire with grass in her toes. i'm pretty sure there are other things she does, like "work" and "buy groceries" but i don't like to think about that. jennifer is usually way happier than she appears in this foto. she also has great hair. bitch.
amber is a sweet little doll who likes to brunch. she works in music, takes fotos, and writes a blog about cars. she is always full of creative ideas that i try not to steal.
