PLEASE DON’T

After Japan, I landed in LA for one night. Then SD for 1 night, then up to SF for a weekend to catch the Warriors win the NBA Finals. On the way I stopped in Santa Monica where Dennis was house-sitting to scoop up Kappy to bring with me.

Straight to the bar with Tony.

It happened to be Laura’s Bday. She might be the tallest girl I ever met.

I quickly fell in love with her friend.

Ended up at a party where a pack of girls took all their clothes off and I shot some of the best photos I have shot in a long time. Not because they were naked, but because the lighting was cool and I didn’t use flash. And it was fun. I asked them in a DM if I could use a couple of the photos in a zine and one of them expressed a huge, “Please don’t.” So, too bad.

I showed this photo to Kappy and he said, “You can have that one.”

Lots of gearing up before the game.

The Mission bus is like being in outerspace.

Sarah sent me this, her Uncle caught it and they ate it.

JAPAN PART 1 – HAKUBISHIN

I had a great time in Japan. It was my first trip there and I am already trying to book another flight for October, I just need more Japan. Dennis quoted Anthony Bourdain, “There is only life before Tokyo and life after Tokyo.” Or something along those lines. I felt it, I am feeling it.

I spent a week in Tokyo and a week in Yokohama. “Hakbushin” is a raccoon cat looking thing with a long tail. I saw one. I didn’t see the raccoon dog though, “Tanuki”. I couldn’t even find any of those little drunk Tanuki statues with the big long balls, I looked everywhere.

We had an art show. We played video games. We got free clothes. Ate super good food and drank super good sake.

I was thinking it was going to be a big task editing down photos for this Japan post, which is why I have been lagging. But since I already made 3 zines with photos from the trip, I figure I can just highlight stuff from the zines. Too much info, I know. Here you go..
