I have had this project, figure, form and texture on hold a very long time, working on it in bits and pieces, between claims and photography assignments! yesterday I stopped everything for a couple of hours and worked on this, part of a personal project. I will show you more over the next few weeks. The figure and form project has been percolating away on the back burner for quite sometime, probably a year now. With only the occasional opportunity to move forward. I think sometimes projects need that kind of time, and sometimes I wish they would move faster!
I need two things to make this project work, people, or more specifically ladies, if you are in the Calgary area and what to collaborate on the project send me an email. Secondly, I would like some feedback!
This photo was taken quite some time ago, when the 6 of us travelled to Greece. I am slowly getting some of my old slides scanned and uploaded into my hard drive, it is a great trip down memory lane.
We had spent a week on the island of Santorini and we travelling to Mykonos, where we spent the day, then onto Rhodes to spend some time. Taking the ferry through the islands from Mykonos to Rhodes was an overnight journey, we had cabins, but it is not the most restful sleep. By early morning the ferry is stopping at some of the little island along the way, and we could watch the people, and vehicles, cars, trucks and transports moving on and off the ferry. There was no time for us to get off the ferry and check out the little towns, hopefully one day we will get to go back and spend a little time exploring.
I love the feel of this black and white image, the girls deep in conversation, almost silhouettes against the view.
Through the passage Richelieu to the Louve, Paris France
We were walking to the Louve, this wasn’t our first visit, but it was the first time through the Passage Richelieu, and the sunlight off the glass pyramid was beautiful the shadows creating a graphic on the floor. The juxtaposition of old stone passage, with the modern glass pyramid, and another old building behind it, gives a sense of walking around Paris where old and new architecture sit so comfortably together.
Eye lashes are all the rage right now! or should I say Eye Lash Extensions! One of my clients, Yummy Mummy Esthetics, has been doing eye lash extension for a while now. They wanted some examples of their work for their Facebook page, this image is one of my favourites.
Driving home last night it was cold, foggy; this morning when I woke up the frost covered the trees, it was snowing and right now it is -6C. As far as winter in Canada the temperatures really aren’t that cold, and admittedly it is much colder in other parts of the country. But like most Canadians at this point of the year we are dreaming of travelling to someplace warmer!
This photo was taken sometime ago and the travellers/tourists out sightseeing, are enjoying not only the nice warm ideal weather, but the beautiful view of the Caribbean Ocean. Their dark silhouette against the blue ocean and framed by the tree makes it a perfect postcard memory!
How about you where would you like to be standing today?
