weird to ask

This is my good friend Michel, and the love of his life Christa. They were driving me to a spot they found that had a view of Los Angeles – to help us live out my vision for their engagement shoot. As we drove through this tunnel I saw the way the light was going OFF at just the right angle, and I asked, “So. Are we down for doing something in the tunnel?” And I found out that Michel had wanted to shoot in the tunnel, but thought it might be weird to ask, and I had wanted to shoot in the tunnel, but thought it might be weird to ask. (I almost didn’t ask.)

Guess I just learned (again) – IF YOU ARE REALLY FEELING IT, whatever it is, IT IS NEVER WEIRD TO ASK.
