i have an interesting life.

today, i got "stood up", kinda. i had a bad feeling about todays appointment. she booked it a few weeks ago, (which is pretty much the pattern lately, all of july is completely filled, every day except for the 4th, more than half of august is filled now too..... what fucking recession?), so i was concerned and wanted to confirm things.

i called her yesterday and got her voice mail, twice. i left nice messages, saying i'm still good for tomorrow and see you soon and stuff. no big deal. called her again this morning, got her voice mail again. now, at this point i should have said fuck it and went to the pool. but instead i did what i always do, i did my job, got into my car and drove the 2 hours to just outside of philly to her house. there, in the driveway was a moving van. not only had she forgotten about the appointment, but had i been a little late, she wouldn't have even lived there anymore.

dammit

she was so nice and paid us anyway for making the trip, and rescheduled for what was my last open day in july.

this left me with nothing to do and all day to do it.

any sane person would have went home, maybe after a lunch somewhere in the city, not us. i says to sara "whose in philly?", sara says to me "maggie.... robin..." i says to sara, "maggie got the last one, today is robin"

i calls robin and robin says "lets go"

we proceed to spend the next hour or so looking for a good spot to put naked girls in front of, this is what we found:

then i came home. it was a good day, sometimes it's nice to get "stood up"

I don't think I have ever seen power lines attached to or running across a bridge before in my entire life, or have just failed to notice until now.

I absolutley love some of natural backdrops that you discover. You make me wish that I was in some of your pics or at least could find places like you do to shoot. Keep up the great work that you do and I promise to continue to admire and enjoy it.

So, oddest question of the day (well, maybe other than the shopping question) - in a case like that, do you end up paying the model for her time, does she pay you, or is it a mutual "we got nothin' to do, let's make somethin' of it!"?

You talent for improvisation knows no bounds and is especially enviable given that those options you mentioned would likely have been considered. However, the opportunity to create takes precedence, even more now that I am motivated to hustle to do so. I thank you for further inspiring me in that regard. I regret you haven't had any workshops so far, but you continue to inspire and instruct in your own way and that is what counts. Thank you for this monument to persistence in the pursuit if creating beauty! :clap: :w00t: :beer:

:lol: at least that turned out better than when i get stood up, and the shoot looks like it was a great one as well.

how are you able to do that in public tho? how often do people call the police on you when you're in the middle of a shoot like that?
