One of the not-so-hidden treasures on the east side of Los Angeles is the LA Arboretum and it feels great to getting back into my rhythm.

Admittedly, the days following this shoot were full of muscle ache accompanied by expletives. Even with regular exercise in the last year, indoor and out, I had simply forgotten what it’s like to walk for hours with an extra 20 pounds of pendulous weight on me. Funny, though. I don’t remember ever getting ripped from doing this regularly.
