I have a Alter Ego

Her name is Ginger.  Not Ginger-Last Name of my choice.  But JUST Ginger. 

Whats funny about my alter ego, she comes out when I don't really want to talk to someone..  Or I have a guy ask for my number, not because he will call, but he wants the bragging rights...   But also Ginger is the girl that is the perfect size when she slips on a pair of $165 jeans.

Ginger has the perfect waist and perfect tush, and doesn't drink too much. 

Ginger has guys that yell her name as she drives by.  

Ginger is the girl that has a cute car with even cuter car name.

And when she drives by folks stop look, turn, and say something like "NO I wasn't checking her out"!

I have to say this it has been months since Ginger has introduced herself.  And to be honest that is a good and bad sign.  That means I have not had my fill of seedy clubs and bad introductions, but it also means that I have not been out.  I think that the good comes with the bad, and so we adapt.   Then Ginger steps in.   She says NO far to often, kisses then walks away having given him a wrong phone number (this is called the kissing bandit), or just enjoys herself then promptly forgets.

Mello Yello...

A friend invited (actually, quite nearly demanded) that I join her on her next photo shoot.  [Thanks Peggy!]  She was going to paint a model in all yellow.

I had to shoot the model next to my yellow bug Jezebel!

I loved the tall grass as an interesting foreground..

The detail of the paint drying on her skin and in her hair.

The paint was the same shade of yellow as these small flowers, I had to shoot her holding them.

This is the ever cute Pikake.  She was along for the ride.  But did not like the sharp rocks all around so I set up a small oasis for her in my purse hanging from my tripod.

Peggy Sue had a fun surprise in her lens hood when we finished.  She must have wandered through a spiderweb and did not notice.  We all had a good laugh!

So Thursdays being one of my days off (I NEVER get two in a row) I most often hit all the local thrift stores.  Now thrifting in Hawaii is not like most.  In Montana I could find things from the 30's and the 40's every time out.  Now I'm lucky to find used clothes from 2009 in good condition.  Most good things mildew due to proximity to the ocean.  I was more than lucky to find....
A framed poster of Ansel Adams late work...   Nice and clean... 

I will always remember my father as an avid photographer.  My father had MANY cameras, darkroom, and film.  One thing I will never forget, my father's collection of Ansel Adams books.  I read a number of them as a young girl (not realizing that I would LOVE photography) and found a simple interest.

Well now my home decor is rounded out by my framed poster by Ansel Adams.  I feel whole now...
