chocolate cake

palm springs


this trip to palm springs, let me tell you what it was like. it was like when someone just shows up at your house with cake. like when you're having a really really horrible day and one of your friends just shows up with cake, just because. and you know you shouldn't eat it but you do because someone was kind enough to bring it and the truth is that you need it. it's gone in a second but it was so good you don't even care.


that's what this trip to palm springs was like. a big fat (unexpected) piece of chocolate cake. many many thanks to the folks at the ace hotel who invited me (and my cameras) down in the first place and to the people in my life who held the fort down while I ran willy nilly in the sunshine for 48 hours.


photographs and details to come, friends.
