In a tizzy

So there I am, on the sunset strip, handling an old Olympus 35mm camera that I am desperate to empty exposures with because I want my pictures. After taken some requests for a shot of CSI's billboard, I realize, this is going to be a bitch. That billboard is dark and meant to have been photographed in the middle of the night with artificial lighting, something this amateur photographer/hobbyist doesn't care to obtain.
    So I'm there at different times of the day. I can't seem to get an angle on the CBS ad for CSI. Then I realize there's a stripper adjusting the sign at the strip club by the entrance wearing a thong, and possibly a skimpy top, or just nipple buttons. I'm too far to see. Talk about walking on the wrong side of the road.
    At this point I feel either cross-eyed focusing my camera on the wrong attraction, or perverted, hanging out across the street from a strip joint hounding the staff. Neither of which are accurate descriptions I should clarify. Well…
    The job is a night shot because the billboard is set at night with the cast of CSI doing their imitation of the Beatles' Abbey Road LP cover in the dark of night. I think I have now four or five exposures that I'm not pleased with, and am considering returning after dark (one of these days.)

This kind of sketching is always fun to do. I'm not afraid of drawing faces regardless of how unlikely they resemble the subject. Drawing faces actually gives me a sense of intelligence. Perhaps it is an ability to study facial characteristics and apply them to different people. I don't know. Maybe it's just because I don't have any scruples to realize that skills like these are useless in the real world.
  I know I'm bad at this. I couldn't bear adding a caption, it's so bad. I like composing editorial cartoons to keep a sense of humor about things, but I can't find anything funny about this investigation, aired last Wednesday. Here, this dynamic duo is shown wearing a black and white suit tie for Henry, and a tube top with coat, for Garcia. BTW, I didn't get so much as a nibble on my laptop, damn.
  I don't find anything funny about City Controller Laura Chick's response to Ana's question. Chick says, "I think there was a lot of playing going on behind closed doors in City Hall." Collapse )
