LA weather is wacky and the ever changing global climate doesn't help. Sure spring time is our rainy season but some years we go with almost no rain and this year it seems like we've had a lot. Maybe I'm noticing it more because of the three weeks of rain I endured in Miami during Art Basel. Last night I went out for my friend Lena Abujbara's birthday. Lena is an excellent photographer and one of my closest friends. I've attended her birthday every year for the last three or four years so I didn't want to miss out on this one. We both live in the Highland Park/Eagle Rock area so she chose one of my favorite bars: Verdugo Bar. What I like about Verdugo Bar is that there is a killer patio area. I'm not a big fan of bars because I don't really drink. I love to sit and converse but loud crowded bars are not the greatest for this so the patio at Verdugo is ideal. Unfortunately that spring LA rain crashed the party last night. It did not deter us from our celebration though.
It did however remind me about mini shoot I did with Minni Jo the last time it seriously rained a few months ago. I had just gotten back not long before from Miami and the rain seemed to follow with. Minni and I had set out to shoot in the beautiful overcast but a combination of factors including a late start and pouring rain cut our shoot somewhat short. However, the photos we did get were gorgeous and I'm excited to show them to you today. They have a very spiritual feel and those are generally my favorite shoots with Minni Jo.
