Darling Diptych :: Night

Left:  Mo
Right: Brittany O

After reading Brittany's description I thought I would put my two cents in over here. I used to be a night person but something has changed these past few years.  Maybe my husband who likes to be in bed by 9:00pm is rubbing off on me!  My photo was taken at was almost completely dark out by that time, but due to the long exposure I was able to capture the hint of a fading blue sky.

The 48 HR Hustle

How cool is this idea?  A magazine edited and published in 48 hours!
The premise:  They unveil a theme and contributors have 24 hours to produce and submit their work. 48 Hour Magazine then takes the next 24 hours to put it all together.  Voila!
The result: A website and tangible version ready for delivery.

"We promise it will be insane. Better yet, it might even work."

I'm going to have to order a copy of Issue Zero...because I'm just too curious not to.

Sylvia Photgraphy ♥

While exploring Flickr I stumbled upon some beautiful images taken by Sylvia, a 12 year old Spanish photographer.  Aren't these lovely?  I wish I could say I was producing this caliber of work when I was her age, but sadly it's just not true.

Land Art : Site Intervention

It would make my day if I passed by any of these "installation" pieces while out and about.  This type of creative work transforms these everyday monotonous public places  into something worth a closer look.

♥Engagement Shoot: Ballard Locks Garden♥


We lucked out with such a beautiful day in Seattle for our Engagement shoot this past Saturday.  Somaly and Mic were so much fun, they both had the best facial expressions. I'll post a few more next week from the second half of our shoot which was "Street Style" in downtown Ballard.

"What do you want me to do - learn to stutter?"

The local non-profit art-house theater in our area The Grand Cinema, is playing this classic Noir masterpiece next week.  Grabbing some popcorn to sprinkle with braggs & nutritional yeast and seeing it on the big screen sounds like a good way to enjoy the film!

What are your favorite movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood?

My getaway is not that far away

I have a special place that I have been escaping to since I was about 5. It's my aunt and uncle's cabin out on Hat Island, a small private island located in the Puget Sound. It's a community of homeowners who get to share in the beauty of a small island with little more than gravel roads, a gas pump, a volunteer fire fighting brigade and the most amazing views of the sound.

My mom always said I had a suitcase packed under my bed, ready to jump at any moment on the chance to visit the island. The majority of my summers growing up were spent digging for clams, climbing the sand walls, swimming and jumping on the giant trampoline with my sister and cousins.

A few weekends ago I went out again with my cousin Garrett. We spent our time eating great food, listening to new music, trying in vain to jump start the 4-wheeler, laying on the deck blowing bubbles and strumming guitars and hitting golf balls. It was a weekend well spent.

Do you have a particular place in your neck of the woods that is your escape?
