So this is going to be my first blog really not about photography, but of course I will post some photos anyway.
I had a great trip to Las Vegas. I gambled when I said I wouldn’t, and I lost. Let’s just say I lost more than I could afford. It is what it is, but I have to talk about a guy I met out there. On my first night, I met a guy on the elevator, and we bullshitted for a few minutes. He mentioned he was there alone, and I mentioned the same, we parted ways and that was that. I ran into this guy about 3 times, and we talked a little each time and agreed we should have dinner since we were both alone. So yesterday I ran into him at one of my photo shoots where he was attending, we set our dinner plans for that night and finished out our days. He asked me to a restaurant that wound up being really, really expensive. I didn’t want to say I shouldn’t spend that kind of money, so I didn’t and we sat down. I should mention that I don’t drink and, to my surprise, neither does he. So, they had king crab legs on the menu. I love king crab legs. They were $65, and the meals were ala carte, so add another $40 for two sides and our dinner was going to be expensive. At the end of a really nice dinner with my new friend, Mike Perez, I was scared to see the check. This guy who I’ve know for all of 2 hours would not let me pay for my dinner; I didn’t know what to say.
Well, needless to say, I was stuck in Vegas for a day and a half more than I should have been, and we hung out, ate, and went shopping like a couple of queens.
I’m now sitting in the airport waiting to board my flight home. I don’t have any pictures from today, but here are a few of my favorites from the airport in Philadelphia where I had a 4.5hr layover on my way here.
Thanks to Mike Perez and check out his Website at perezsalonandspa.com, or if you are in the Rockville, MD area check him out. He is one hell of a guy.
And here are a few from behind the scenes at Redken Symposium 2009
