weathering the sweater

weathering the sweater

Last of the Colorado photos - I miss it already!  I still love this sweater, in case there was any doubt.

weathering the sweater

A couple readers have asked about the extraneous (non-"me"-featuring) photos, like the ornaments in a previous post - all of those are taken by me. I do enjoy experimenting with the many knobs and buttons that accompany my camera equipment from time to time. Of course, my husband is the artist behind all of the beautiful photos where I am the subject, though I try my best not to ruin edit them.  His grandmother and grandfather were both accomplished artists and, though B says he did not inherit their talent, I believe he has an artistic eye.  So there you have it - he owes me a dedication or credit or something when he becomes famous (and while he's at it, should probably buy me a present or two, since he's famous and all).

Another remark upon a past post: there was a piece at the Pismo Gallery that I was unable to photograph (strict "Chihuly only" policy), but I just found it on their website, so here it is:



Boot of Thorns by Robert Mickelsen  (image via Pismo) - it pretty much embodies the aesthetic B and I aspire to create in our home someday, so... I kind of feel like we need to own it.  Wow, here I am evolving from obsessive fashion collector straight into obsessive art collector.  Maybe a mite bit premature considering gross lack of funds...

You're very lucky to have a husband with an interest in photography and the skill for it, too! I've been trying to get my husband to do more photos and one of my New Year's resolutions is to have more outfit posts on the blog. It's so fun to see them around. :) Hope you enjoy your New Year, dear! xx

so glad you had an awesome trip, e!!!

those images in the previous post of the chihuly pieces were gorgeous. i did an internship at the corning museum of glass after college and got to enjoy several chihulys on a daily basis. i felt very, very lucky.

Grace said...

I find myself doing that same thing. I don't own a home. And I lack the funds for it. Yet I shop for art and decor pieces like I'm a superstar.

Love Grace.

Leah said...

You have the eye E, that's why I asked who took those photos. I thought it was your hubby. But really, if it was you who did those shots, you are an artist.
