This is some netting from fruit that was sitting in a basket that had contained strawberries. I couldn't decide what to shoot for the day. And this was sitting next to the bag of recyclables.
This is the Canoe House Restaurant in South Pasadena. A friend, Tiki Al, had a small birthday celebration at the restaurant. The food was pretty good. The drinks needed a bit of polishing. They don't have many of the traditional tiki drinks. If those went onto the menu, it would be a totally kick ass place.
Walking down my street, I saw this lovely grouping of succulents. They have become a "Thing" here in SoCal. I've seen lots of planters with succulents. Many more than a few years back. I've been thinking about creating a small planter with some different types of succulents. I have a "black thumb" when it comes to plants. So we'll have to see....
BACON!!! I went into Rocket Fizz for some soda and I found this by the fridge case. I didn't buy it. I'm not so sure how it would taste. I mean, I love bacon and I love cheese and I'm fan of Kettle Corn. But I just couldn't bring myself to try it.
Continuation from the day before, more and more fabric. As you can see there is some pretty wacky stuff. Lots of 1970's colors. Browns and oranges and greens. Not much I can use but I am pretty sure my crafting friends will be able to do something with all of the fabric.
The friend that I helped with costuming gave me a two big boxes of fabric as partial payment. The fabric was mostly 1970's vintage and had cedar shavings in them. So I had to shake out all the shavings before I could really get a good look at the fabric.
The reason I couldn't shoot Michael Half-Life for both shooting days is because the Memphis Belle came to the Burbank Airport. A few years back, I had the joy of seeing the Liberty Belle, another B17. She was involved in an accident a few years back. You can read about it here. I was so sad that we had lost one of these Flying Fortresses. The Liberty Foundation has replaced her with the Memphis Belle. This is the plane that was in the movie Memphis Belle. The Boyfriend and I get dressed up in World War 2 clothing. He in his uniform and I dressed up in my Rosies. Here's a picture of me:
On of my Facebook friends, Miley Yamamoto, posted about needing a set photographer. I posted that I also did set photos. So she got me the information. The project is called Michael Half-Life. I had a blast on set. I could only work for one of the two days they were shooting. But I got some great pictures. Pictured in the center is David Maddox, the director and creator of the project. I can't wait to see the final cut.
While the Boyfriend and I were walking in Downtown Disney, we came upon a store that had a lot of StarWars stuff. We had to go in. Towards the back of the store, they had other stuff. I found this awesome Jessica Rabbit t-shirt. I wasn't sure if I should buy it, but the Boyfriend said if I didn't that I would regret it. And he was right. So I bought it. Processed with Instagram using the X-ProII filter.
Made it down to Anaheim for WonderCon!!! The Boyfriend and I decided to have dinner in Downtown Disney. As we were walking down the way, we saw the Lego Store. This was one of the displays outside the store. So awesome!! I can't wait to go back to Disney. It's been way too long.
Prepping for WonderCon. I hadn't dumped out a few of my CF cards for my other camera. I hadn't done that in like YEARS! The camera is the Boyfriend's and we don't have a good system for when and how we dump photos from cards yet. This picture of a picture has Just Jenn's AMAZING Leia cupcakes. Check out her StarWars recipes here! You'll love it!!
Blue lights! I had gone to a electronic supply store. And they had all kinds of cool stuff. They had this stuff called Electroluminescent Wire or EL for short. You can read all about it here. This stuff is SOOO COOL!!!! It comes in many different colors but I really liked the blue light. I'm not sure how I will use it. Maybe some kind of cosplay. But for now, it sits on my desk being all bad ass. ;)
I've been so behind on posting. I haven't stopped snapping away. But the posting part, yeah.... I think part of it was switching from iPhoto back to Aperture. My hard drive that I have my Aperture libraries on has been acting strange. Weird noises. Noises that would make me wonder if the drive was crashing. But it's been fine lately. So I'll be posting a lot of pictures over the next few days. I am still really enjoying this project. I just need to make the time of posting.
I decided to check out the warehouse area just a couple of streets over from my apartment. It mostly warehouses but I found this small motel tucked in between all of this industrial area. It seems very strange but it looks like it's been there for some time. They had this amazing neon sign up. I will have to go back some night to see if it lights up. Edited in Aperture.
Driving through Los Feliz, there is this car wash that I've driving past a million times. I've always liked the spiky triangles that line the outside of the car wash. I shot this with Instagram using the Valencia filter.
