What is will soon not be!
You know you had a great time when your abs hurt the next morning from laughing so hard. I met up with... wait for it.... wait for it...Aaron Reed and Zeb Andrews from Oregon! Rich, Dawn, Dave, Ian, James, and Jave came along too! When we got into SF I saw Zeb standing on the street corner so, I yell out the car window... "Hey, I know you!" But then I quickly realize, I really don't know him just because I've seen his photos from flickr and he really has absolutely no idea who I am so he probably thinks I'm crazy now. Great start! We all hang out for a very fun dinner while we wait for sunset. (see pics below) And I almost forgot to mention, oh em gee.. I got to sit next to THE Aaron Reed! ; )
After dinner we all head out to Treasure Island to shoot the bay bridge. The plan was to go down the very steep cliff on the side of the bridge to get down to a tiny beach down there. Now, I've already had the very special privilege of getting down here before when Ian took Annie and I on 4th of July. So really, I didn't feel any need to not be able to stand up, sit down, use the restroom because of a week of soreness...not to mention the black widows. Have fun with that one! So, me and Rich had plans to shoot something else. We dropped them off at the top of the hill in the two black SUV's and looking like we are on some swat mission, everyone jumps out on the side of the road at once and runs down towards the cliff, never to be seen again. Ok, we saw them 3 hours later.
After shooting a few more locations, we all head home and ditch plans of shooting sunrise at 3AM the next morning. I can't wait to hang out with everyone again today in Santa Cruz!
