Train of Thought! Choo choo.
Boy are you guys IN FOR IT today. I’ve had my grande ice coffee and my spinach feta wrap and I have some things to share with you. And it’s fitting, as it’s been some time since we’ve had an official train of thought post, and it’s Monday, which is my favorite day, because I can’t possibly be behind on work because it’s all only just started. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will involve procrastinatory naps, but never Monday!
First we will start with two pictures from Willy Somma. Willy and I sit next to each other at computers much of the time, and I glean off her genius. Also her cashews.
These are the Northern Lights.
The lights match these lights, which are at Harrod’s. I don’t usually go in for the holiday windows mumbo jumbo, but these win.
wait, which one are you?
this i get.
National Geographic appeared on my coffee table recently and I saw that Martin Schoeller had shot a story about the Hadza tribe in Tanzania.
There are some special images in it.
As a counterpoint to Schoeller’s seasoned shooting style is newbie Travis Dove, also shooting for the mag, in Greece. BTW, sorry to see you go, Adventure… looks like Nat Geo still has a budget.
This story is about the ancient monastic community of Mount Athos in northern Greece.
It’s pretty excellent.
The monks hang out together all their lives… and beyond.
That reminds me, Santa. I would like the red skull bank from Urban Outfitters for Hanukkah.
This image goes nicely with the skull bank, I think. These are by Greg Krauss, and they are from a series about his father. I just had a long conversation with someone the other day about ear candling. Is it bunk?
Greg was the TA for the class at SVA I was lucky to be a part of on Friday, taught by the wonderful Dan Saelinger. I was there to talk about blogging. I think the students bought my act.
I’d go back to school myself if I had the time money balls. Maybe I wouldn’t go back.
I love the cat.
I’ll leave you with some Johnny Depp and some French. ciao.
