For as long as I can remember, I've always loved the atmosphere of rainy, cloudy days. They're comforting and soothing. There is a certain romanticism about it, especially when you are embarking on an adventure that pushes you out of your comfort zone.
Take this roadtrip from San Francisco to LA for example. When people describe their experiences while driving down the west coast, they never fail to mention how amazing it is due to the clear skies and sunny days. All the photos and youtube videos you see are like a moodboard for that perfect summer getaway. But on our trip, we had stormy dark clouds and rain the entire three days. Having rain in the golden state is an anomaly especially since they are in drought.
But I found the dark skies made this trip a bit more thrilling. Imagine driving into the storm, being belted with rain and having zero visibility, and then suddenly coming out of it and stumbling onto this little beach that is like nothing you have ever witnessed before. It was almost magic. The faint drizzling of rain, the murmuring of appreciation for surviving the storm and the cup of hot chocolate to soothe the soul.

Meet Dylan. A half-asian superbabe prodigy with amazing cheekbones and eyes that can stare into your soul. We've been friends for a few years but it's only been recently that we have started to hang out regularly. Always struck by how amazing his bone structure was, I knew I had to figure a way to get him half naked without causing too much awkwardness between us. And then it hit me! A photoshoot! A perfect way to see his luscious body naked all in the name of art (and not for my own enjoyment).
And because I like my men dirty and rough looking, I gave the make-up artist instructions to have him look dishevelled, like he worked in a coal mine. And to really complete this ultra masculine fantasy I was having, we decided we decided to drive out to the farms to try and find some farmers to join us in a threesome.
But we did drive out west for an hour trying to find a farm. After driving up three driveways and getting chased away by vicious dogs we decided that maybe the farm setting wasn't going to happen. So we ended up down in Wollongong, near a beach town shooting in some trailer parks for a trashy trailer park shoot!
