The Mulholland Drive bridge is being demolished to expand the 405 Interstate Freeway, this creates Carmageddon. So, to those that are going to be stuck in traffic, I wish you the best of luck. I think I am going to fire up my BBQ grill today.
I have been going back into my archive to remember what it used to be like back in the days as a Hollywood Paparazzo. I used to get at least 30 plus stories a month with my best month at 80 stories. My cameras were smoking. I remember the stories as if they just happened yesterday.
John Mayer and Jessica Simpson: My wife was having a late brunch with a friend when all of a sudden I get a call that John Mayer and Jessica Simpson were hanging out having lunch at this little cafe called Hugo’s in West Hollywood.
Nicky Hilton: Always stylish even to this day. I can still find Nicky hanging out doing her shopping but unfortunately she is a little hard to sell this day in age.
Ashley Olsen: I used to have a hard time taking their pictures as they were always traveling with security guards that were total scumbags. I hated working on the Olsen twins. One day, one of their security team stole my phone.
Kim Kardashian: Popular for her talents. I haven’t watched the video that made her famous, yet. I hear it is pretty good. I remember one day that she didn’t want to pose up for a photo, I told her that it was for her publicity not mine. She quickly turned around to give me a shot. Ever since then, she gets it. Now she is cool.
Every Once in a while I stumble upon an image that I just need to capture. I guess in a weird way that makes me feel like an artist, even though no other has ever stated it in front of me, to me, you know, that I am an artist. Well, maybe this Chandelier does not speak volumes to you, but it sure does to me, and to me, it is art.
As my wife and I were waiting for the lights to be turned on at the water falls, we went into downtown Niagara Falls to see the town. We picked up an ice cream cone from one of the local shops, Baskin Robbins, to cool off. We then carried on enjoying the weather and the downtown. The city felt like Universal City Wall with all the arcades, wax museums, and restaurants. All of a sudden, the whole town was being attacked by these dinosaurs. They started the city wide attack by the miniature golf place. One of them came straight for us, but I was able to fend it off. Eventually, I realized that all he wanted was my ice cream cone.
I was in shock when I saw this, I mean, who wouldn’t be? So, I called my Canadian friend and he told me that yes, the women of Canada fought for their rights to bear breasts in public. So I started to wonder why the USA women have not fought for the same rights? Well, unfortunately, she was the only one that I found.
Escaping work by taking my first vacation in six years is hard. Especially when I am connected to the company with wireless technology. Just today from my vacation, I had to reset our servers. I just can’t escape. And then I found this laptop as a Graffiti art form calling my name as my wife and I were walking down Chinatown in Ontario, Canada. Well, it was all worthwhile when just a block away, we stumbled upon a Naked News reporter. We soon found out that it is legal for females to be topless in Canada. Photos coming soon.
I love staying in touch with friends. When my friend, Rama Jay gave me a call that he was flying in from Texas, I had to reschedule everything so that at least I have lunch with him. We were once designing electronic circuits to read mammography sensors for imaging at Nova R&D, Inc. Ahh! The good ole days. Well, we were having lunch at Urth Cafe and we stumbled upon the very sexy Alexia Starchild (Read my story and see the amazing gallery of photographs on my company website. http://www.outofsightmedia.com). It was a fun day and and it was nice reminiscing about my days as an engineer.
I even had a chance to take a self portrait of myself.
