Ikea in Burbank is crawling with people on a Sunday. It is especially busy when they are having some sort of Disney promotion just outside of the storefront. However, this did not deter the fantastic Aysha Thoen and I to try and sneak some shots as devout Christians, fresh out of mass, shopped for trendy new furnishings for their domicile.
It was tough, but we were patient and were able to find a few semi-private nooks for Aysha to show off her sensual stockings. I also did finally try the famed Ikea Swedish meatballs on this day. They paled in comparison to the lovely girl I shared them with. So here she is again, back by popular demand, Ms. Aysha Thoen.
Athena Adrianna is a young Jersey girl out in LA. She studies fashion and design. Athena is not shy and loves to rave. I tried playing some of my ‘old school’ electronica to see if she was familiar with any of it. But apparently Bassnectar and Deadmau5 are the new Aphex Twin and The Prodigy.
She still thought they sounded cool, so I was pacified. I wonder how the young kids felt when they heard Fatboy Slim at the closing ceremony for the London Olympics. I just hope they do not have the same reaction as I do to songs like Pinball Wizard. Hated it! (in flamboyant voice). Anyways, nothing but love for this fun & beautiful girl who is homesick for the East Coast.
You probably love Lily Ivy. You probably think she is the cat’s jamjams. You are probably smitten by her lively, kinky personality. Or is it her crazy good looks?
Whatever it is, you oughtta be ashamed of yourself. Be original. Resist those charms, mang. Show a little self control. Don’t be so predictable. Don’t be like me.
By heavy demand, Gillian Barnes returns. You guys probably liked her also. Gillian can be shy, but once she warms up, she reminds me why I do this sort of thing.
Beauty is fleeting, which is probably we why all consider it special and which why many of us try to hold on to it with a kung fu death grip. Thank Gillian for making your world a happier place. I have.
If I had to guess, I’d say this pictorial will receive high marks from Zishy subscribers. Ingrid Hayes granted me the amazing privileges of 1)photographing her in her bedroom, 2)while wearing this sheer body and 3)without a lick of makeup on. I am not a religious person, but days like this can make a non-believer rethink his convictions.
There is an acronym used by computer programmers called KISS. It stands for “Keep It Simple, Stupid”. And that means you should avoid making solutions to problems overly complex. So when people ask me why I don’t hire makeup artists, photo assistants, use fancy lighting equipment in a refined photo studio, apply ‘artistic’ effects in Photoshop, etc; I tell them to KISS my ass.
