SmelLA

I had an extremely busy weekend with photo shoots for my upcoming show Food Porn 2. There was nothing more uncomfortable than shooting a male model with no shirt on in the middle of a Mexican Restaurant haha. I also took a trip up to LA to photograph Kristina at Line Hotel. It was the first time we ever met in person so we were both pretty nervous about the shoot. Before we ordered food from the hotel we got to know each other a little bit. I normally do this to established some sort of friendship and take the awkwardness away. We ordered some breakfast from the hotel, the total came to $66, it's like the orange juice was $20 each or something. I had the lady repeat the total to me because I thought I heard it wrong haha. Then it was clothes off for the "Breakfast In Bed" shoot. Considering her shyness, she did a very good job being calm and sexy. Made it all worth the trip and easy to work with. 

I originally wanted to come to LA to shoot and then head back home to I can make it to Cindy's birthday party. But we stayed in LA for a little while longer. Me, my brother and Kristina with out for lunch at Plan Check and a good friend of mine from LA (Bryan) met up with us. We haven't seen Bryan in a very long time, it was a treat to chop it up with him over great food. This was our second time at Plan Check on Wilshire, their food is extremely good. Not their Bloody Mary though, that shit tasted like shrimp cocktail sauce with vodka......without shrimps! 

We were greeted by this once we exit the freeway. MS13 tags on every block till we reached the middle of the K-Town.
