out of business

randy fox is an american photographer, whose work frequently concentrates on the decaying beauty and loneliness of the fraying american dream.  based in western pennsylvania, fox’s work celebrates the hope and ingenuity that once existed in the rust belt area of the united states.

his photographs are equal parts sad and groovy, especially the DIY / retro signage. how cool would it be if we could see before & after versions… i’m picturing scenes of back to the future in my head right now.

spiderwebs

spiderwebs by rachael hyde, thought this was cute.

paint my portrait

really really really my favourite things. i’m sure i’ve harped on about them enough hey? if someone could teleport me to the national portrait gallery in london right now i’d be a very happy woman indeed. well, here are some more i have been staring at recently… click on the images for sources / artist

leather skirt

leather and skirt…. the words don’t even sound right together. but it works! nice in winter, but you don’t want to be caught in a heat wave in a leather skirt – that’s for sure.
