Title: Riding the Sunset

I’ve known Jeff for a few year now, he’s such a sweetheart and has the best cosmic vibes full of positivity. I also really appreciate his support of my work, it’s lovely hearing others tell me that they share my photos with other people. Oh yeah! and he’s one of my customers for my film developing services. I love him and I love his art. He’s such a talented being.
A few weeks ago we spoke about setting up a day to hang out and shoot, he was being asked to get interviewed so we thought we would get some portraits done for him to use for that as well. The evening was so wonderful. We met at his house in Echo Park and decided to walk around his neighborhood and catch the sunset. Jeff is super photogenic, I was stoked on my captures.
I had no idea that there is a mental institution randomly in this beautiful neighborhood…that’s so gnarly. We got to witness someone breaking out, like this dude jumped over the barbed wire fence and got his freedom. That was cool. I live for those moments, well I live for all these moments. The sunset was so beautiful that day, I don’t get to see it like that very often. Once the sun was gone, we went back to his place and enjoyed some joints. Jaz, his gf is amazing, aside from being extremely nice and having the best fashion, she’s a bomb ass chef. She made us an amazing dinner, served us some homemade salsa with wine and we listened to Bowie. It was a beautiful night with them.
