It costs How Much???? In L.A …. ???

Yeeeeks!

I’ve been slowly planning my trip to L.A for next year.. a bit of a holiday and a bit of work also..

Doing the usual.. looking at what’s on.. travel .. accommodation.. places to go to and things to see and do, and I’ve come to this conclusion about it all….

Holy hell .. L.A is ridiculously expensive.

How do people ever survive there ?

For the sake of context .. as of this blog post .. currency conversion is about NZD$1.68 to USD$1.00 .. yea.. that’s a big ouch. .. for me to buy say USD$1000.00 would cost me near on NZD$1500-1600 .. and that’s probably not including whatever fees the banks would want to charge…

So far, with what I’ve seen, the cheapest part of the trip would be the airline tickets .. then rental car …

Things like hotels or AirBnB is hellishly over priced. I know that food is ok as you don’t have to eat like a rock star… but coffee.. omg I’ve seen some prices like UDS$5 for a coffee.. and I know they don’t do good coffee there… we are so luckily here in NZ.

However… work wise.. I’m trying to plan a few photo shoots … and that’s an eye opener in its self..

Apparently L.A is strongly union controlled so contents and permits are generally required .. makes sense I guess… where as back home you can generally shoot .. of course the fact that my shooting genre includes nudity of the human form.. that makes it more complicated again.

I’ve been advised that leaving the L.A city limits is advisable .. but L.A is a very big place and traffic would play a part in substantial delays no doubt.

As yet I’ve not looked into studio hire rates.. mostly cause I don’t like shooting indoors anyway..

I’m going to research San Francisco also.. see if that city has similar issues or not. .. or maybe I just see if I can get a AirBnB a bit away from the city.. maybe that will be more affordable.. which kinda sucks cause the few models I really want to shoot with are in L.A .

If anyone has any advise or knows of reasonable accommodation and places I could shoot art-nudes .. then I’d love to hear from you 😁

Anyways .. enough of the ranting .. I need to get on the road again…

Please show my Instagram and website and YT some love..

BBC News: Honolulu bans texting while crossing streets in bid to curb injuries

Honolulu bans texting while crossing streets in bid to curb injuries – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40765087

I have seen some funny stuff in time but this.. is actually a smart move. Can t be a Trump idea, likely why it’s smart. 

 With the ever encroaching tech addiction that seems to freely take over what little common sense people might have had, we see more videos of pothole finders, poll grinders and car slammers.. heh oh well.. 

Raise your glasses to the end of the world as we knew it.. and drink wine ???? No that didn’t sound right. 

EAT MORE BACON.  ðŸ˜

BBC News: British troops given guide to Estonian strip clubs

British troops given guide to Estonian strip clubs – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-38972213

With the current state of Korea v Japan etc in respect to so called “comfort woman” during the wars … This stands there screaming out loud of British inability to stop acting like idiots … well I’m being so tactful right now.. but.. really? What will we see in 50 years .. Eastonian governments accusing the UK of the same thing that Korea accuses Japan of now ?

Wow.. so glad all I do is photograph natural people *cough* lol 🙂 

Meh.. who cares. 

BBC News: Tamara Ecclestone breastfeeding pictures: Why were they controversial?

Tamara Ecclestone breastfeeding pictures: Why were they controversial? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38932320

Isn’t it sad when an article like this gets commented upon.. even published… 

Because people are rapidly losing touch with how things in the real world work. 

We didn’t magically appear all washed dressed and ready to go… we all started life out as babies ..  All needed feeding , cleaning, etc.. and naturally breastfeeding feeding is how it’s done. 

This new generation of “OMG I’m so offended by that ” people – are going to be the end of sensibility in this world…. 

Lost has become most all common sense .. breading forthcoming generations of mindless uneducated out of touch with reality drones …. 

Thank goodness I still have food in my life lol

The Death of Sensibility – US warship USS Sampson heads to New Zealand – NZHERALD

wpid-wp-1428884097253.jpeg

As the flags of freedom that once flew high in our hearts and pride of this fine country are being burned by the lunatic PM John Key, the US Warship USS Sampson makes its way to New Zealand for a unwanted visit.

Back in the 1980’s when (now departed) David Lange PM made a stand that did this country proud, and helped to build NZ to what it is, we may never have thought that decades later a corrupt US controlled puppet of a waste of life John Key would come to undo this … to make NZ a place where it’s own people can no longer afford to buy a simple house or live under such high costs.. where NZ has become a tax haven for his rich buddies, welcoming them all to come fuck this country and its people over, over and over again…… …….

This… dismantling of  our proud and globally respected stance again Nukes…. will surly be the death of us.

All that needs to happen now, is the US to fuck off another country like Russia enough that New Zealand will be seen as another of the US’s allies and we will (if not already) become a target ….

I was alive to see David Lange make us proud, now, alas, it seems in my life time I will witness John key shame us to the world.

 

Dear John Key – may you suffer in what remains of your political career, and as a man outside of that, may shame and disgust rain upon you and no helping hand ever be offered to you or your blood line.

A fine moment in history, bought to us by David Lange. RIP.
