June 06, 2015 4:46am This is how it happens. You shoot a cool landscape, but it's missing a definitive subject matter. So you find a model to pose in it for you, but with clothes on it looks a little unnatural like a cheesy vacation shot. Then, when she takes her clothes off and poses nude, the entire image literally comes alive! You realize that this is the quantum leap that's been missing in every landscape you've ever shot! Now you're finally shooting the true art you've always dreamed of! You've finally reached the pinnacle of everything you've ever wanted in your photographic art!... and the next thing you know... people start jacking-off to your pics, calling you a pornographer, and asking if you fucked her - lol! Ya just can't win in this world! That's why Friedrich Nietzsche proclaimed that "God is Dead." It's not because he didn't believe in God. All he ever wanted was to live a holy lifestyle. But that was impossible because of the low-lives of society that permeated every aspect of his existence; which, in turn, caused him to deem his entire existence as "absurd." Fortunately for me, I still find meaning in the purity of our art. It may be the only thing in life that is NOT absurd. :)

You look amazing.... In particular, you look great in Mono Lake. I shot there a couple times and love the images.... Try the north shore next time...veru dramatic at sunrise or moon rise. Try June full moon.
