So this was interesting - for the first time since my best friend tried her hand at photography, I was asked to be in front of the lens. I happened to meet photographer Chloe Aftel at Cheeseboard back in July and she asked to photograph me. It took two months for the card to move from my wallet to my desk, but when it finally did I recognized her work and of course, had to e-mail her. Anyway, this is the first photo from it. It's pretty gnarly, right?

Sorry for being so MIA lately. October has been a crazy, crazy month for me, topped off with a trip to Seattle next weekend to celebrate Halloweekend with my friends Sacha, Matt, Bryan, Kyle and Kyle. I'm sure there will be many photos to show. Otherwise, here's some music I find inspiring right now.

I had a brief shoot with fresh face Kelly Rose from Stars Model Management today. After shooting what seemed to be the same three models over and over again for the last few months, it was a breathe of fresh air. This was Kelly's third shoot, and I love her unique and beautiful face. Do you see those freckles? Easy going and easy to work with, we finished four changes in addition to makeup in just three hours. You know what else was neat about today's shoot? I styled all of it. With my main stylist, Ashley, gone to seek a new life in NYC (I miss you, Ash!), I am trying to build some new connections, but also take a better hold of styling myself. Joe always told me not to become dependent on a stylist. A few pieces came from my own clothes, but otherwise most pieces came from Crossroads Trading in Berkeley. Photos are coming soon!

I've been slightly obsessed with Coney Island since my American History class back in junior year of college. Popular from the mid-1800s to just before World War II...Coney Island may be a neglected and slightly creepy amusement park now, but it used to be a destination point and vacation spot for all New Yorker due to the fact that it was just the right distance away - not too close, not too far. It may look dingy in these photos, but the area used to be a major resort, a place where people of all classes could find something fun to do in the summer. I kind of wish I had been there to see it in its glory days...but a quiet Saturday morning before opening works too.
