My mother gifted me with these two photograph prints from Sharon Montrose for Xmas today. These are Eagle Owl No 1 and Eagle Owl No 2. There are going to leave on either side of my vanity.
If you have not visited The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose – I highly suggest you do. She photographs all different animals in front of a stark white backdrop. They are beautiful and I want so many more!
The most beautiful couple ever has finally allowed themselves to be photographed together. They both have the most perfect milky skin. They should have some pale little ghost babies that I can look at.
Jack + Karen.
I would really like to check out Howard Schatzs book In Character: Actors Acting. He gives actors situations and captures their reactions on film.
Amy Poehler: Left: You are sneaking a peek, in the middle of the night, at your sweet new boyfriend’s computer … and discovering e-mails to and from his three current “other” girlfriends. ~ Center: You are a Park Avenue matron, paying your husband a surprise visit at his office and discovering him on the couch in flagrante delicto with his secretary. ~ Right: You are a disoriented homeless woman being arrested for loitering.
Hugh Laurie:Left: You are a dedicated father who, with your wife, has just sat down to dinner with your 15-year-old daughter, who is defiantly announcing that she’s pregnant. ~ Center: You are a fashion designer on the morning of your big runway show, realizing that nothing in the collection is ready or fabulous. ~ Right: You are a blustering, pompous member of the British Parliament, giving a speech that is being broadcast on the BBC, and you’re thrilled at the sound of your own voice.
Jeff Goldblum:Left: You’re the surly 14-year-old son of a single mother, steeling yourself as she awkwardly, haltingly begins a belated and unnecessary “birds and bees” talk. ~ Center: You’re at your daughter’s college graduation, and the pretty classmate of hers that you’ve been secretly ogling has just said, “Mr. Lefkowitz, you can’t be 58—you’re too cool!” ~ Right: You’re the valedictorian of your high-school class, having just been introduced to give the speech of your young life—and your mind has gone completely blank.
Tomatoes from our garden that Klaus didnt eat. We cooked them with our brussels sprouts last night!
This morning I have been working on unpacking books. While trying to decide which ones should go on the coffee table, I focused on Sally Manns book of landscape photographs Deep South. She is one of my favorite photographers and I took a minute to sit and flip through it.
Sally Mann is from Virginia and definitely has a deep love for the deep south. These images are from Virginia, Georgia, and Mississippi.
She has an amazing eye for light, making her images seem otherworldly.
Sally Manns Immediate Family
This book is full of photographs of her three young children, many of which were taken while at their summer cabin along the river. The images were largely of her childrens activities, playing games, make believe, skinny dipping, and napping. Immediate Family met much controversy over the nude pictures of her children, many questioning where this book lies on the line of child pornography. I believe the images are beautiful and true to the life of young children being natural and spending a lazy summer in the woods.
Of course, these are just a few of her beautiful images, go to your local library or bookstore and flip through some of her books, her pages are easily frameable for art on the cheap.
Oh, and here are the chosen coffee table books!
