Malibu Jump!

    Newer Older

    My mom came out to visit me this week, and yesterday we went on a drive up to my favorite lookout spot in Malibu. When I saw this cliff perched above the ocean and clouds I knew I had to take a shot out there, so I handed my mom the camera, gave her a quick tutorial on how to focus, and against many objections sent her down the road to shoot me as I climbed out.

    She was doing pretty well with it until I told her I wanted to do a jump shot.

    "Hey I'm gonna jump, ready?"
    "Oh no you're not!"
    "Okay cool. One..."
    "Jer!"
    "Two..."
    "Don't you do it!"
    "Two and a half..."
    "How do I focus again?"
    "Three!"

      Sounds exactly like my mom! What a trooper though :) And I'm extremely jealous that you were in Malubu. I'm going to get myself a beachouse, a pink jeep, and a yellow lab that wears sunglasses and live out there!
