…lady in striped hat……….


….I haven’t picked up the camera for a while and yesterday morning I got the bug.  And when I feel I have a shot in mind, I need to do it  or else I  eventually forget about it.  So this is this yesterday’s inspiration.

…I picked this shot because I like the wave in the hat…….

Happy Friday! 🙂

…black and white……the other big color story this summer……..


The last big color story of this summer that I photographed was pink and orange.  Today, it is …black and white…..

Black and white is huge this summer…cool and fresh….a nice relief from the hot vibrant colors of the season………

This is available as a fine art print.


…lady in a black tulle hat………


Made my first ever crockpot stew yesterday. Received the crockpot from my Mom last year, so it was fitting to give it a go before Christmas this year.  A bit too watery, but incredibly good.

Yesterday afternoon was my time for play, so I put together this set up for a photo session.  One umbrella, one SB800 flash, camera right.  Black background.  This is processed only a little, as the lighting turned out quite well.

The set up: Hat, is the same hat from another shoot.  However, I placed some black tulle loosely around it to give it a completely new look.  The feathers, is a fascinator, i.e. headband with feathers, that I put around it.  The necklace is a Myriam Haskell necklace, (love her gorgeous pearl work).  The gloves are from a Halloween shop for $6.  The dress –  is really a camisole, with a Betsey Johnson scarf placed over it, to look like a dress.


…a new hat……..

I went shopping yesterday afternoon.  Haven’t been to the big mall since the spring.  All sorts of new shops opening, like Tiffany’s .  A new Stuart Weitzman shoe shop, fabulous patent leather shoes – shoe candy!

Please excuse the missing casings etc…undergoing some house renovations that have been in progress for a while.

This is a new hat that I purchased yesterday.  Love leopard. And look at Boucle, he had to be in the shot.  What a sweetie-pie.
