2am runs to Chinatown to grab some food. Check.
Midnight karaoke. Check. (also calling everyone we knew to, “Get out of bed, get dressed and get over here!” It worked.)Impromptu photo shoots. Check.
Turning my studio into an Armor Fabrication Facility (and learning about worbla) for a few weeks to create her Skeleton King! Check!
More midnight karaoke. Check. Check.
Driving in a blizzard when no one else is out because we’re hungry. Now. Check.
I could go on. Many fabulous adventures.
I first met Ashley when she used to photograph the wee hours mayhem at one of my favorite Wicker Park clubs. She had a camera. I had a camera. Fast friends.
She’s in LA now. (Seems like a great number of my best friends have headed out to California in the past few years.) But we still keep in touch. Random texts. Random FaceTime chats.
Of course, all only after midnight.
