Ruby Aldridge for NY Times 'S' Mag pt.2

For this post I am focusing on the B&W out takes shot with the Leica. (again, these images are scanned from the proof sheet.) The article was called "Shimmer like your Sister Kate." It was styled by Sara Moonves. The editorial can be seen on nytimes.com.

My good friends Ashley Baluyut and her BF Grant Hatfield were also there to model for the shoot.

Usually you can see Catalina off on the horizon, but it was too cloudy this day. I'm sure Ash was dreaming of it.

The photo of Ashley on the pier and the model with the flag on the pier both made me go "wow". Honestly

Yay. You brought back the link to bonus blog goodies

i love the idea of a pro skateboarder doing a model shoot.
Posted By: alcausin john paul on March 14th, 2012 at 12:23AM PST
everything is cool with a pro skateboarder.
Posted By: alcausin john paul on March 14th, 2012 at 12:24AM PST
cool
Posted By: alcausin john paul on March 14th, 2012 at 12:25AM PST
So that guy that was being all touchy knew that model?
I wonder if anyone has ever done that to Ed? That\'s when you know you need a security guard.

Lohan is a babe!
Posted By: Josiah on March 14th, 2012 at 10:10AM PST
I just bought a reissue deck of Ed's New Deal graphic, the one with the blue cat. It's pretty cool, It would be cooler though if it was the actual New Deal. I'll post pics when I get it.


Jgonz you asked how my Vegan quest was going? Honestly it's going very slow. I eat meat everyday, I eat beef at least 5 times a week. I'm noticing changes in my body, especially with my digestive system. My asshole is constantly itching. I have no energy. I hate it.
TMI I know! Sorry.

Where I live we don't have a lot of vegan friendly foods. I gotta get the hell outta West TX.

I'm sad, but I could still change. It's not too late. No wonder my body is acting like this. That article is very eye opening. Thanks for sharing.

Girl knows what she´s doing.
Very present.Nice expression.

Happy Steak and Blowjob day everbody!

I just wit's not very hard to find vegan food. I just walk into aent vegan about a month ago, I live in Massachusetts and store and say "BITCH, WHERE'S THE VEGAN FOOD"
Good luck with it though!

Who wears a shirt that says Utah on it, I can see California, or Florida, but fucking Utah?

I like the flag pictures a lot too. The bird picture is pretty tight as well.

This conversation reminded me of that king of the hill episode where Hank works at the Co Op.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on March 14th, 2012 at 06:49PM PST
Behind the scenes of behind the scenes. I can dig.

John is always talking about something that I have to go back up and look at the pictures for. Do I not notice shit at all? or is John really keen?

All the birds got you thinking about Hitchcock. I have never seen almost any movie people are like "You HAVE to see .....thismovie...! How have you not!?!?". Lame fact
Posted By: Mike on March 14th, 2012 at 07:23PM PST
I like the first photo of that UTAH guy coming up to her and she's like scoffing. then the next is our plainly dressed character posing with a notable model. what having an outgoing personality can get you.

Denim jeans with the pockets out. Regular show? remember? know what I'm talking about?

first smoking photo, dylan rieder-esque.
is a model's diet primarily cigarettes? they still age nicely. maybe

wow. the photo of her with the light and dark seagull is pretty good.

ha. I noticed that too with John's comments.

Josiah. I'm uploading a goodie for you.

Dude Jgonz you rule! Thanks! I didn't know you had a blogger? Also fuck the haters Jgonz, I seen someone posted "why are you such a lurker?" on your Tumblr. People get jealous because your so gnar. I mean that dude! DO YOU NO MATTER WHAT!
Posted By: Josiah` on March 14th, 2012 at 10:50PM PST
SOPA

You're welcome.
I do need to lurk less and skate more though. Oh well. Enjoy.

steak and blowjob day s?
great post again
back to cool b/w
Posted By: Eggs McManus on March 15th, 2012 at 07:05AM PST
What's SOPA?


I heard about that steak and BJ day thing too!
Posted By: Josiah` on March 15th, 2012 at 10:24AM PST
SOPA was pretty much a bill backed by the Record/Movie industry that gave copyright holders the power to sue and shut down websites that allowed for free downloads. it sucked because the language was too vague and granted too much power.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on March 15th, 2012 at 10:52AM PST
Steaks and BJ's. then get an itchy butthole.
That's why I come here. to get sweet ideas of what to do on my days off from work.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on March 15th, 2012 at 10:53AM PST
I called my senators to make sure they weren't gonna pass the that bill. Fuck that bill.

Sorry, lol, i'll try to stop talking about stuff you have to go back up and look at the pictures for.

Damn, I wanna read that article you posted jgoz, but the words are soooo tiny. I clicked on the pictures but they didn't get much bigger.
Posted By: john on March 15th, 2012 at 11:28AM PST
@Eggs
Some super serious Informant mailed me it was Steak & Blowjob day.
Not sure why he told me that, but that´s what it is.

@ JGonz
you won´t get an itchy butthole from blowjobs.
Something else will.

Today two flies were fucking on my kitchen sill right in front of my eyes.
Shameless creatures they are.
Posted By: S on March 15th, 2012 at 12:43PM PST
I´m just jealous bout them already having fun
while others just started their breakfast.
Posted By: S on March 15th, 2012 at 12:45PM PST
19 Impossibles in one minute?
I think Ed needs to get in the ring.
Posted By: S on March 15th, 2012 at 12:56PM PST

Posted By: Eggs McManus on March 16th, 2012 at 05:38AM PST
