Palm Springs


We rolled into Palm Springs at around 6pm, the air was still warm and moist and the sun was just behind some clouds, getting ready to disappear behind the mountains. The Ace Hotel is located almost at the base of the mountains, you feel so close that you can't help but try to reach out and touch them every so often. Tim got ready for his print show and I "helped" by sitting around snapping pictures. The second night was the opening and I singlehandedly sold the diptych skulls to a very drunken older woman who was debating on how to frame them for over an hour. She vacillated from gold ornate frames to leather, against the advice of myself and a hip gay gentleman to keep the frame a simple white, finally we reached a compromise; white leather.

On the last day we went to the cultural/musical landmark Pappy and Harriet's. It was a good 20 minute drive from Palm Springs to literally the middle of nowhere, also known as Pioneertown. Gang Gang Dance is playing on October 8! Tim and I had the most amazing grilled steak that nearly put us in a coma afterwards.

On the drive back to LA, we couldn't resist stopping at the dinosaurs from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. On display are the patent leather dominatrix boots I got at Angel's Thrift Store. Thank you Palm Springs, Matt, and Tim, I had a blast!

  1. Love your boots! The dinosaurs - I remember those from both the movie and from seeing them as a kid. (Damn, I feel old!) I went to P.S. a few months ago and I cannot wait to go back when it cools off a bit. Would love to check out the Living Desert and some home tours next time I go. Love your photos!
