As some of you may have noticed, I have a certain taste for… alternative culture. As such, I have more than a couple alternative friends who invite me to alternative events like Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird. It’s basically one giant event for dealers selling things like comics, postage stamp jewelery, duct tape bags with Pokemon designs, monocles, artificial severed limbs, sci-fi sculptures, wooden robots, and countless other things that you didn’t know existed, but now want to purchase for your home.
Tattoos in the midde of the hall were a bit of a surprise.
There was a guy selling nothing but sculptures with creepy baby faces.
I love this rocket ship sculpture. I hope shooting it from this angle made for a better photo.
For reasons I cannot describe, the fact that Optimus Prime support Pepsi makes me incredibly happy.
So, did you see those terrifying baby face sculptures up in the collage block? Well, Ari saw that booth too, and insisted on buying one. Not only that, but she couldn’t leave the Off The Wagon booth to go grab one, so I had to go get it for her. That’s right, I enables this:

My friend Jen responded to a model call I put out on Facebook. I took what I learned from shooting underwater earlier this week and applied it to shooting today. Still, shooting underwater is kind of a pain. There’s holding your breath, trying not to make bubbles, trying not to float when trying to pose, no viewfinder or LCD screen for the GoPro, waiting for the sun to come out from behind the clouds, the list goes on. Still, we both had a ton of fun, and would love to do it again.
As a general rule, I hate my self portraits. This kind of works for me though.
I love this surfing Pikachu tattoo. I hate that the toes got cut off in the photo though.
