On a hot summer day there are few things many others would do besides the beach, the movies, or the bar. However, she chose the the Getty museum, no not the one where I would be complaining about a heavy clutch in downtown LA traffic, the one in Malibu. I had never been to the Getty Villa, and even worse I did not have a proper camera with me. I agreed not only anxiousness, but also anxiety, what happens if the “it” shot of today happens when I don’t have any gear?
I have learned since then always to rent a convertible in California, always bring a scarf for a lady, pack a bottle of wine & gas station bottle opener with two mugs, and leave your favorite film camera in your trunk.
