Blog. I've been a stranger. Life happened all of a sudden and the minutes to sit and contemplate all that is happening have been few. I am making some right now because I am overwhelmed with goodness. Today I received in the mail an issue of Elle Girl Korea that three of my polaroids were published in. It was a feast for my eyes. I was very flattered to be among other photographers that I admire -Whitney Johnson and Amanda Gilligan! If you haven't seen their work, get on it, your eyes will thank you later.
I just wrapped up some framed Polaroids to ship off to an exhibit in DC called Exposed: The Polaroid Retrospective. (One thing to mark off of my 30 before 30 list!) If you're in the area in April you should stop by and check it out! I am so thrilled to be exhibiting with other wonderful Polaroid photographers. I just wish I could be there on the opening night. Instead I will be preparing to celebrate the nuptials of one of my best friends in sunny Florida. A little vacation that I am entirely looking forward to. I need the sun, the spanish moss but most importantly - my girlfriends. We are coming from all corners of the US for this occasion and I am thrilled to see my gals.
Chicago isn't quite experiencing the burst of Spring that is happening everywhere else but I am still thankful for jacket instead of coat weather and that I can give my Hunter boots a little break. They are cute but you get tired of wearing rubber boots everyday. I can't wait for flats season to really be here!
Oh! I haven't posted since we got back from tour. Tour was pretty fun. A whirlwind of a few days but really great times. I enjoyed making friends with the gentlemen in Marksmen. Seeing blossoms and friends in Georgia. Meeting a wonderful pair of moms in Ohio. Seeing some friends and some wonderous housewares in New York as well as a wonderful visit to The Impossible Project space. Driving on the highway (there's something romantic about the road isn't there?) Meeting new friends and enjoying their juicer. I love traveling this way. Meeting new people. Seeing new and old places and friends. Enjoying the hospitality of strangers. Already I can't wait for the next round of dates. Hopefully this time music will take us to the West Coast!
As usual there is too much on my mind so I'm going to go into list format in three, two...
- Have you seen this photographer/musicians blog? He has an affinity for instant films and quirky iphone videos that win me over. He seems to have a compulsion for peel apart photo making that is to be reckoned with.
- Look at this picture and tell me it's not magic.
- Did you see what everyone came up with last week at Words To Shoot By?
- If you're tired of eating cereal for 2 meals a day, like I am, you might fall in love with this blog too.
More soon. What have you wonderful folks been up to these days?
