Burlesque in the streets! ()

I always love seeing my pictures large on Sunset Blvd, and for the second time I have the corner spot opposite the Arclight. A very big thanks to BLT and Sony for the opportunity and the placement.

Last night I headed out to shoot the billboard at around midnight, when the traffic dies down just to the right amount to get the shot. I left the keys in the car so my pups could enjoy some music, but while was I setting up my silky new tripod from Really Right Stuff in the street, Coco managed to step on the central door lock on the dash, and I was trapped outside in the cold wind! Happily my cell was in my pocket, and AAA arrived in half an hour, but it then took the locksmith over an hour to pick the lock, he said that German cars are the hardest to break into, which is good to know. The moral of the story is never, ever leave your keys in the car with your pups!

    The pups are as impatient as the otters

    Just by the Arclight! You should come back out again for sure, maybe in the spring? Weather has been very odd this year, so not sure that we’ll be having as good a holiday as usual.

    Indeed, and the lock on my car is now totally broken, made that a jolly expensive picture!

    Didn’t you have Patrick Dempsey in the same place last year?

    Well remmbered, yes, I think more like a couple of years ago for Made of Honor.
