Working on many projects, including a new article for Fine Art Registry, delivering images to a new client downtown and chipping away at the Never Ending Project to set up an Etsy store.
Plus spending way too much time on Flickr and visiting some fun and addictive blogs. Here’s one highly recommended:
Also dipping into some old Victoria magazines for design/photography inspiration. Found a great article and quote which inspired a new still life yesterday, the shots of which I decided I don’t like so will reshoot today… The quote is more enduring:
“Nobody knows quite how the world is going to shape itself, but as long as people care about art and books and flowers, the world will be a good place to live.” – Enid Haupt
Another gorgeous day! Well, it started off gloomy, dark and drizzly but after lunch turned warm and sunny. Now it’s all blue skies and fresh air.
Went to the local farmer’s market for fruit, primarily for props but once I’m done shooting, we get to eat them! I especially wanted to get more Rainier cherries, which are so divine and have such a short season. The grower I bought them from told me they would basically be over by next week.
As will the raspberries, sniff. I bought three pints which I’ve been reveling in all afternoon while shooting.
“I will learn what is obvious to a child… That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered.”
