at first i thought whoa, a chandelier with no lier (that’s what i imagine the hangy bit to be called). but no, it’s a candelabra – a beautiful one at that. why have i never seen one like this before? somebody buy it for me, please. from AMradio.
in my early days i was employed as a science teacher at riverside school … my negatives and photographs sat mouldering in the back of my garage for 30 years before the wonders of the digital age allowed me to rescue them.
i was fiddling around with my parents’ old toyocaflex camera on sunday – looking through the viewfinder, focusing in and out and wishing it still worked (and that i had some film). instead i wandered around their garden shooting with my own camera and attempted to create the look i wanted in photoshop. some of these are a bit hit & miss, but i kind of like the way they turned out – more at my flickr.
lauren from glossary wrote a post about the wonders of H&M (miss you) , and in the comments i waxed lyrical about my love for high street shops in london. one of my favourites was uniqlo – a japanese company that makes the best basics (cardigans, jerseys, t-shirts, jeans etc etc). i used to go in there and stroke their cashmere jerseys as if they were kittens.
i love the idea of these ships for shoulder pads, as drawn by illustrator by charmaine olivia
