Spring Break 11

There and back on my camera phone. So many pretty things and people I adore in between.

The last winter solstice ever? no actual skulls here
happy feet!
obligatory Senor Frog's shot
pixelated madonna
SF has the best cereal related graffiti
accidental tilt-shift space needle pretty, pretty campus

Not sure where I stumbled across this, but Housetrends magazine (go Cincinnati!) has a cool article on the house where Charley Harper and his wife lived for 50 years. That's right. A house with a giant ladybug on it.I also love this tile mosaic by Harper in the Cincinnati Federal building.

Sky High

Apparently all I want to do is take pictures from the sky or of the sky. Over-exposed Jesus. I like how this shot turned out-- both ways.

The guest book I made for Rebecca's wedding made it onto the Martha Stewart Wedding blog! Check out all the pictures- it was such a fun and happy day! I feel lucky I got to be a part of it. Picture by Rachel Thurston from here

Tom Douglas is a bit of a Seattle icon. He has a bazillion restaurants (the ones I've tried have been pretty tasty). I hit his newest, Dahlia Workshop for a working breakfast. Lo and behold the man himself was there (and even answered a question I asked the checkout girl). Witness creepy stalker picture below of him in front of the menu board. My fried green tomato and bacon biscuit was delicious.

I have a weird fear/loathing of grocery stores. I get lost. I wander aimlessly. I lose hope, etc. So when a friend suggested we hit WinCo, I wasn't that thrilled. But, I ended up thinking that it was so amazingly cool looking. Plus, any store that touts Fruit Rolls, Pig Ears, and Dog Bisuits in the same breath is just plain rad. Wanted to take more pix, but an employee in bulk foods busted me and said "we don't take pictures at WinCo". We don't?!

Ah, shucks!

Nice to get a shout how from a famous blogger of impeccable tastes (who I'm lucky to count as a friend)! Ali did a post on this spread from Life Magazine on small Utah towns in the 1950's. In high school and college my friends and I would often go on day trips to random towns. The names are amazing-- LaVan (that's navel backwards, located in the middle of the state), Parowan, Laverkin etc. etc. In one of those funny coincidences, the same day I stumbled across the Life spread, I'd just finished reading the latest Anthology Mag, which has a piece on a house in Toquerville Utah-- one of the towns feature in Life.Images from Life Magazine via Ali via BYU Museum of Art; photography by Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange.
