thought a these things is appropriate after such a long time away. 20 is a nice round number, too.
still on holiday on this side of the world, but i have been keeping one eyeball on the internet – so thought i’d share some beautiful photos that have been crossing my path. normal posting to resume next week!
thank you for the enthusiastic response to yesterday’s post – i will definitely be expanding on that idea in the near future (collages, fashion, art… can’t help myself really). BUT i’m going on holiday from today and will only be back to the internet world next week sometime – holiday fun depending. in the meantime, here’s a these things. have a great weekend!
is it just me or is 2011 turning out to be the fastest moving year in living memory? AUGUST already!
… here’s a new music mix to calm you down.
For a period of 5 years between 1978 to 1982 photography was a way to prove to myself that I was still alive. Unable to unable to make sense of the “real world” and “real people” who told me that I was too sensitive, too quiet, too thoughtful, too strange, I found that my world changed when I picked up the camera. Through the viewfinder a new and better world opened up and, best of all, it acted as a shield. I did not have to get too close when I held the camera. In 1979-82 I used to visit the Clockhouse Community Centre in Woolwich Dockyard, London SE18 and these are a few of the sights I saw.
YES! a new things i like right now by one of my favourite new-to-me bloggers Jen McCabe of Honey Kennedy (named for her grandmother). well not so new anymore i guess – i have been reading Jen’s blog for a while now and am consistently amazed by her discoveries with every post, especially in the fashion department. her things i like right now list is no less impressive, it has left me with several tabs open on my browser waiting to be explored. be sure to follow her on twitter as she is a fun gal to gab with (let’s bump top knots some time eh, Jen?)
