Looking glass


Yesterday was the first snowfall since I’ve moved here. It was a feathering so light that nothing even came close to sticking, but it had the feeling of the city itself eskimo-kissing me as the greeting winter approaches and as things settle in comfortably. While there could conceivably be some passive ‘waiting for the other shoe to drop’ thoughts, since I’ve had an unbroken string of meeting fantastic people since moving here, my view on it isn’t necessarily that riddled with idealism. It’s just a very, very pleasant set of fortunate events thus far.

Two completely different sources yielded one day of my first two official Nashville models.

Ashley is actually a co-worker. Now, while certain model-body-types aren’t what I normally shoot, a 6 foot 2, attractive, slender and sweet chickie is kinda hard to ignore. And, since she wanted to actually dip her toes into the whole modeling thing, I offered to help. She’s got some fantasticness waiting to blossom.

Tori was a incredibly fortunate find on MM since an intentionally quiet reactivation of my account. The soft echoes of a young Linda Evangelista and splashes of Milla Jovovich and Audrey Hepburn peek through in her face. It’s a rather happy thing to have a totally sweet and nifty shooting partner who can flash that for my camera.

So, I had the unadulterated fun experience of having them both over, quickly making friends with each other and breaking my new place in during my first official shoot since moving here. Quite pleased, I am.
