Its such a lonely planet - it really is. I mean, Im having just a blast soaking up the Californian sun and taking the most amazing pictures (you will have to wait til I get back to the UK for those babies). I have this ache in my throat and heart and I know its Ellie. Ellie, Ellie, Ellie. And my phone calls to Anna and the security of my own home.
I took a walk down Venice beach last night on my own and got lost in the sound of the waves whilst watching sunset surfers and photographing silhouettes on the shore. I felt the tears welling in my eyes - its such paradise here. I met another photographer on the beach who lives local and he was showing me some great tips on how to photograph sunsets. I must say the shots I got are pretty amazing and I cannot wait to show you them. He asked if I was a little sad and I think it must have been written all over my face. Such a nice man. The Californians are just ultra friendly here - Ive always been made to feel welcome as I sit like a lost soul in cafes and bars. They seem to be magnetised by my posh english accent.
I got talking to this lovely couple at lunch yesterday and within half an hour I had taken his business card (mortgage lender - watch this space ladies) and the lady - Tina - offered to take me shopping in Beverly Hills. She said that I would love Armani as she dazzled me with the most massivest diamond bling on her ring finger. I laughed it off by saying that they might take a detour to some secluded spot and have me murdered for my measly $120. They took it on the chin with roaring laughter and whilst the invite was erm, inviting, I declined. Mark says Im too trusting and I took heed of his last words to me on sunday night.
I am sat in the Marriott hotel right now as the hotel I am in charge 49 cents a minute to use the net - the thieving sods. So I have snuck in here to update my blog. Its $259 a night here and Im not suprised. Its stunning. My hotel is across the street and at $97 is quite nice but not swanky. Plus this place lets you surf for free and print stuff out. I might have a go at printing war and peace - just for the hell of it. Mwahahahahahahahahaha.
I gotta go now - and soak up some more leathery skin inducing sunshine. I miss all of you so much even though you are a "dot com" away. Have I missed anything?
Adios my fine friends xx
