Photo Shoots: Ashley, Stefanie, Kristin

Ashley Pennington

Everyone’s got hobbies. Some follow sports. Some play video games. Lately mine is photography.

I’m not a photographer. I’m humble here because I have no formal knowledge of the craft at all. It’s just a hobby for fun. I don’t charge anyone, and I don’t intend to. It’s more like I’ve got a toy that I play with a lot and I’m getting better with it. I don’t even know what an F-stop is. I know my photoshop skills are still a bit amateur (I just discovered layers). I do know how to frame a decent shot and snap it. Last year I got a compact SLR (I’ll review later it on this blog) and I’ve been taking it with me everywhere. Now I’m taking more pictures than a Japanese school girl. I love how it’s going so far, and as I get better with photography I’m enjoying it more.

KristinWe live the moments of our lives, and then those moments are gone, forever. I’m happy when I can capture one of those moments in a striking and dramatic way. And I’m eternally grateful to the rapidly evolving technology that allows me to do that more easily.

I’ve been getting some good reaction to my photos, and since this blog is my way of sharing, from time to time I’ll start sharing a bit of my latest hobby with you. I’ve already shared a ton of pics from my recent Burning Man trip. Today I’ll share some shots of one of my favorite subjects to shoot, cute girls :)

I don’t know if I can call these “photo shoots” since I was just walking around with a camera in my hand with no setup and often terrible natural lighting. Especially because I’ve never even been to a real photo shoot and have no idea what it’s really like. But anyway yeah, fuck all that, here’s some pics from 2 “shoots” I did. Let me know what you think :)

Bailout the Gold Diggers

Bailout the Gold Diggers

Note: I wrote this about a year ago during the time of the bailouts.
——————

Guys this is serious. No one has been hurt more in this recession than Gold Diggers. As our country loses its Millionaires and Billionaires at an alarming rate, beautiful young women from every metropolitan city are being forced from their condos, left to fend for themselves on the streets without their Mercedes, Louis Vuitton handbags, unable to shade light without any Christian Dior sunglasses. Furthermore, this sharp rise in condo evictions is flooding our court system and causing considerable harm and embarrassment to the wives and children of the men who previously supported these Gold Diggers.

When one takes an honest and deep look into this situation, only then can one realize just how serious this crisis is, for all of us. Surprisingly the income needed to support the Gold Diggers of this country is approximately $30Trillion/year, that’s more than TWICE the Gross Domestic Product of our nation. More importantly they do not save a dollar, every penny they receive goes right back into our economy. They are the WET DREAM of any STIMULUS PACKAGE. Bailing out the Gold Diggers will provide an immediate boost to our economy. In fact, since the average Gold Digger will typically spend at least 2 to 3 times what she receives, they have the potential to get our economy completely out of this recession. Our nation can’t afford to lose this level of spending. To a lesser extent, our greater Los Angeles region can’t afford to lose Sunset Plaza, Rodeo Dr. and the whole of Beverly Hills. We need a national Bailout program of at least $5Trillion to support our Gold Diggers, bring back their spending, and finally teach our children that we do have a responsible government.
