Bits and Pieces



Bit number one: My friend Kim participated in a "sheep to shawl" contest at the state fair this weekend. She was part of a team of 5 people who have to spin and weave a sheep fleece into a shawl in 5 hours. Incredible. Check out her pictures here.



Bit number two: You should also add Jaja's blog to your reader because she is constantly putting up THE coolest things. Her last post had my jaw dropped for about 5 minutes.



Bit number three: The photos in this post are part of a series I did at my old house. I took a photo every morning for about 2 months, and I'm surprised at how beautiful they are when I look back at them. I'm posting them to my Flickr account as a set called "Morning Pictures."



These remind me a lot of the type of photo I took in college in my color photography class. Very simple, very domestic, lots of strange angles. They remind me of William Eggleston's Guide, which we "read" and analyzed in that class. Funny, at the time I was completely uninspired by William Eggleston's work. I always wanted to shoot photos more like Joel Meyerowitz. And these seem to be a blend of the two, actually.
