That one time I was Accidentally Bowie - A mini tribute and a reflection on life & Death (Los Angeles, CA)
Sunday night I popped onto instagram one last time as I was about to go to bed. I hadn't planned to post anything but the social media, zombie-like-virus I've cultivated for the past four years wanted to see how many new likes and followers I'd gotten in the last couple of hours, and my thumb was twitching to do some double-tapping before heading to dream land.
What's incredible, is that my dear friend Gwen lost her brother the day after Christmas. I had met Bond a number of times and he was a truly unique and bright light in this world, and the hurt my dear friend felt was palpable. I spent three hours holding her for a photo shoot as she let some of the emotions artistically vent through her incredible posing, but I didn't cried at all. Two days later, Arizona Shootout organizer and ornery old bastard/close, fastfriend David Hall died alone in an Arizona hospital. I had helped him run the last two events; I had driven him and fought with him and helped him put away groceries and listened to the stories his non-existent children would never pass on. I found out that he died via facebook, and I had no tears. Yesterday I received an email sent to a collective group of photographers and models in the Seattle area that a model, while working at her bikini barista job, was thrown from her kiosk in a propane explosion and died the next day. She was a mother of two. Still nothing.
