the candid fashion show shots

I always like the less posed and candid moments in life. Here are a few of my favorites from the fashion show last Saturday. I was told this week about someone getting to be a secondary photographer at a fashion event in Berlin, I believe. Wow, to get to shoot the underbelly of an event and not the be the chief photographer. I can’t hardly imagine a better gig than that—well, perhaps naming lipstick and paint colors. That was my dream job as a child.

Here are a few of my photos from LA. It was remarkable to have even a little bit of time in The City of Angels and even more remarkable to come home to a blizzard in Vermont. Seeing dense, saturated color was truly inspiringand I am ready to get to work with this palette.

Using the WRONG Tools

I was struck today as I worked around my messy studio that it’s a hassle to not use the right tool. It’s obviously true if you are stitching with a mason nail, hammering a light bulb or securing lace with a nail. The right tool is usually with me all the time. But, I waste time when I just need to make a phone call, or write an e-mail and inquire or apologize. Perhaps the next time I will just grab the right tool and get ‘er done.
