Another archived shot from Point Loma looking off the coast of San Diego with one of the Coronado Islands in the background. This is the same sailboat that was in one of my previous posts.
These are some old photos I just dug up from a few years ago, they were all shot using my Nikon D5000 and taken from Point Loma in San Diego and might give you a different perspective of the city than one you typically see in photos.
Back in August of this year I was up in Venice Beach working on a project with Arsenic Magazine which they've titled "A Deeper Kind of Sex." I was shooting stills for the project while Director/Writer Scott Burns (Bourne Ultimatum, Contagion, The Informant) directed the video. The video features models Tatiana Dietemen, Alyssa Smith, and Shay Maria.
From the original post on the Arsenic Magazine site:
The objectification of women: can't live with it, and can't sell billions of dollars of material items without it. It has warped a generation of men in all sorts of diabolical ways and has turned young women against food, each other and themselves. And yet here we are, confronted daily with our own appetites for youth and beauty and sex with access to an infinite internet receding into the darkest and most fascinating places. Sam Shepherd once said,
"In the middle of a contradiction, that's where you want to be."
This is where these images find all of us. - Scott Z. Burns
In September of 2007 I traveled down to South America with two friends of mine to meet a company we had been working with based out of Buenos Aires, Argentina. During that trip my friend Matt and I decided to jump across the Rio de la Plata to Colonia, Uruguay for the day. At 8AM we hopped on El Buque Bus for the hour and half ride across the river where we entered another country. Once we got off the ferry we were supposed to board a tour bus, it's only by dumb luck that we bordered the correct one. Aside from being exhausted due to the fact that I was at bar until 6AM with two Argentinian girls I had met, my Spanish wasn't (still isn't) up to par and at the time Matt's Spanish speaking skills were non-existent. Anyway, we boarded the bus and did a quick little drive through town before exiting the bus for lunch and some free time to roam around the streets for a few hours. As we wandered around I took some of these photos:
