Salt Lick

After a few hours of stump removal, we lay down in the shade for awhile to catch our breath. Seven seemed to be interested in WL's perspiration and threw worries of a high sodium content to the wind.

We took out two trees yesterday to make room for a grapefruit tree. One of the stumps took two days, was dense and very heavy. A lot of sweat and advil. The trumpet tree was whimpy and brittle. It took about 15 minutes.
The new fruit tree is behind the lemon tree which is busting out of control now....


The calla lillies are coming up again. Making the underside of the mock orange tree a bit more lush and green.

Beck's Undies

The ad campaign we did for David Beckham's Bodywear line for H&M is hitting the stores next month. He was such a nice guy in person but I guess the scowl sells.....
The commercial will debut during this year's Superbowl

On Camera For A Change

Excellent key grip Ryan M was cast for a commercial recently to play a...... key grip. His part seems to have landed him with the most screen time. We'll see what the final cut brings.

Sunshine Dog

We finally had some sun today and Seven took full advantage. But it appears he'll need an adjustment.

The Power Couple

Cousin Ted and BFF Walter got to go to the Golden Globes last night. Their official photo is a work of Hollywood fantasy and fun.

Vasquez Stunts

A few weeks ago we were just north of LA @ Vasquez rocks to film a stunt man flying off the famous cliffs. A crane was put in place to give stunts a point to secure our hero. Cameras rolled and out into the ether he jumped.
