For only $5.50/hr, I can lounge around naked in a heated room by myself. After a hiccup in my plans and a chilly night sleeping in a boat with another model, I am enjoying the little bit of luxury before my flight to an even colder environment in Boston and NYC for the weeks to come.
(And yes, I am sporting "sooty nipples" and "sexy hair" in these two photos. I still enjoy this hairstyle, but my nipples are only decorated with makeup upon special request.)
Okay, now I believe you. The winter is indeed here. Two days ago I took a Greyhound bus from Seattle to Portland and saw my first snow of the winter. Much, much more awaits me on the east coast.
Some people shoot pool competitively; I shoot pool as a way to socialize with my best friend. When shooting in real life I am more properly dressed, even if my technique and still leaves much to be desired.
A few months ago I found out about photos with Ken of Lost Coast Photography that were published in the Third Volume of the F-Eleven Books. I would have made an announcement much sooner, but wanted to surprise my mom with a copy for part of her birthday present first.
I am an art nude model. So technically much (or any) wardrobe is not a necessity. And when I find myself flying from city to city for months on end, my clothing for the few moments when not shooting take up much of my space. So, I wish I could schlep far more things with me to shoots, but often I am limited unless I am taking one of my crazy road trips (which is actually coming up rather soon) and in general things which are new to me (albeit, they don't need to be new at all) are rather exciting. When photographers have wardrobe for me, I am ecstatic. With a bit of cloth, thigh highs, lingerie, a belt or two, costuming, or other miscelaneous clothing items, a wardrobe and creative look can be created. I challenge you to have on hand a few items for me to play dress up in.
Of course, fanciful wardrobe is always thrilling, too. Today I got to wear part of an old flight suit. That is tough to beat. :)
I am "home" and ready to apply something I learned in Argentina to my day here in California. I shall now take my siesta, as it is the hour for this and I have been on the plane for 15 hours since I last touched Argentine soil.
