Here is part two as promised. Lanah Adams knew what she was getting into when she took the Zishy gig. But as you can see in the bonus video, she had a moment of hesitation before baring her amazing breasts. This was one of the trickiest public shoots I have pulled off. Apparently, holiday destinations tend to draw crowds around the holidays. Go figure. Just the same, our mission was accomplished at Mission Inn. Madonna’s “Burning Up” is the track in the bonus video.
And now part two of my visit to Santa Monica with Tatiana Penskaya. Lighting is very important with photography. But what is even more important is that you have fun doing it. Tatiana and I get along great, which is incredible given that my Russian is quite limited. By the way, the changing rooms at Nasty Gal are a trip. Clever use of one-way glass. Too bad Nasty Gal has since left the Promenade.
Flowers are the sex organs of many plants. Some flowers do not smell like anything. You can dig your nose deep into them without detecting an odor. Some flowers, when brought indoors, can fill an entire house with their aroma, which is not always pleasant, but also not always off-putting. I suppose plant and human sex organs are parallel in that way. However you prefer your flowers may differ from how another person prefers theirs. If you enjoy bold and sultry Ukranian women, Lydia Graniva is probably your cup of tea.
Lanah Adams took the journey with me to see Riverside’s Mission Inn. This hotel and surrounding area is known for going all out with holiday decor. Lanah is a petite firecracker from the Appalachian region. She escaped the freezing temperatures to enjoy SoCal’s milder climate for a couple of weeks. Part two arrives tomorrow with a bonus video and Lanah’s sleek nude figure. We may or may not have been escorted off the premises.
Jorge, our Spanish contributor, was able to shoot Lara Maiser during her travels around Europe. She is an exquisite female who has been a muse to artists around the world. Sneaking shots of her in a public space ultimately proved to be difficult, so Jorge wisely opted to capture plenty of Lara inside a warm, private setting.
Here’s part one of my day in Santa Monica with the sweet and adventurous Tatiana Penskaya. There is a moment when you are at the beach where you become one with the sand. You realize the hopelessness of trying to keep it from crawling into your hair and up your bathing suit. You decide to pay the price of temporary discomfort for a beautiful memory in nature. Acceptance is the final stage. I will meet you there.
Wendy Patton is a rarity. She says that once she got so mad at her grandmother that she stole ten thousand dollars from her and ended up tossing it into a river. If anyone else told me a story like that, I would be skeptical. But knowing Wendy and how impulsive she can be, I can totally see that happening. I will make sure I stay on her good side.
