Can you guess what that is in the photo above? I was in the foyer of my apartment building. Decided to have a bit of a Rothko moment with my edit.
The two faces of trees. I was thinking about the painter Agnes Martin when I took the photograph and edited it. The colors reminded me of her work.
Stripes and polka dots. Together again. Obviously, spring is here. Everybody always acts like it’s a shock that stripes and polka dots are back in style, but do they ever go out of style? I don’t think so. A sailor shirt is always cool when it’s warm out.
Apparently my favorite Hipstamatic combination–Loftus lens, Blanko Noir film, just in case it isn’t already obvious–was inspired by the food photographer David Loftus. Seemed logical to try photographing some food with it, and the rich color of these blood oranges was calling my name. I’m pretty pleased with the result.
I saw this little dude on the side of a mailbox. Pretty cute, right? Does it count as defacing public property when it looks this good? According to the artist Banksy, “Writing graffiti is about the most honest way you can be an artist. It takes no money to do it, you don’t need an education to understand it and there’s no admission fee.” I agree.
I took this picture while waiting in the longest line ever at Jamba Juice. I suppose the wait was worth it–I got the shot and my smoothie was delicious. Jamba Juice has introduced a new line that contains vegetable juice, and I dig it.
I know there are a million pictures of flowers in the world, but I loved this one. It feels like it should be a book cover. Maybe for Julie Orringer’s next book? A girl can dream.
I am so behind in this project that it’s not even funny. So this is day one for the catch-up. More to come tomorrow.
