On our spontaneous run to LA to run a few errands we were craving some good Japanese grub. 

Okonomiyaki sounded good so we found this little restaurant called Gottsui right in the middle of a row other Japanese restaurants. First time here so we tried a little bit of everything. One okonmiyaki order is enough for 2 people without having that over bloated full feeling. 

I HIGHLY recommend the mentaiko with pork and

That roasted banana topped off with some vanilla ice cream is a winner

Gran Tursimo 5 Photoshoot

Kyoto - Shoren-in

One day, someday, soon?...

I'll be gracing covers of automotive magazines. 

Gran Turismo still stands as my favorite game ever and throughout the years I've seen how this game evolves as much as I do. It's always served mostly for recreation but it slowly became more technical. It slowly became an obsession to get the perfect settings to get your car to rocket around the corners and finding the perfect suspension set up to your driving style. 

Now, in GT5, their Photo Mode is like going out on an actual shoot with all the real life settings available when it comes to maneuvering on an camera. 

I was taking a little breather from editing and took some shots in GT5. the dream

Mary Aranda-Higa for Hell Bound

Mary Aranda-Higa

Covina hometown gal, bringing back the red and black in style. With fashion background in all eras of the early 1900's, you can't help but admire her presence. How can you miss her vibrantly colored tattoos or those bright red lips?

Having that air of confidence, fashionable habits on a daily basis, and to have the true knowledge staying true to fashion styles of those eras is what a pin-up model should posses.

One of my most memorable and enjoyable shoots, much love goes out to you Mary!
