As this year of photos comes to a close you might notice that I am cramming in several of my back-up ideas I’ve had that I wanted to make sure are included in my book when its done.
It was a pretty lazy friday. Mostly because it was too damn hot to do just about anything. Steph came home from work halfway through the day and brought me lunch from Sree’s, one of my favorite Indian places. Is it any wonder I’m going to marry that girl.
After she worked at home for a bit, we decided to take a swim in our pool. This led to a little discussion as to what the proper cool off temperature of a pool should be. I have a solar cover over my pool all the time when I’m not using it. It’s quite effective, and the water was at a nice brisk 93ºF. Just where I like it. In fact, I would have been quite ok with maybe 4 degrees warmer. Stephanie on the other hand seems to think that’s way too warm and would prefer to have it around 80º, as the "purpose of owning a pool is to cool off in the summer." I found it quite cooling and refreshing and thought she’d lost her mind. You see, I come from a warm weather people. I don’t understand you caucasians and your desire to swim among the polar bears and the like. I’m curious as to what other people think.
After swimming, I’ve basically been relaxing and talking with some models about potential upcoming photoshoots.
No word on the job yet.
The style of this shot by the way originated in an earlier photoshoot I did before I ever did 365. I’ve always liked it, but I’ve never done it again. Perhaps I should do a whole series like this with everyone I shoot from now on. If you’d like to see the original, I did with Nicki, it is here.
