fashion photography makes me happy

If Tyra Banks were interviewing me for America's Next Top Model and asked me who my three favorite photographers were, I'd so have an answer (not like most of the air heads that end up on that show)

1) David LaChapelle-
Nothing ever looks real, everything looks extraordinary. The settings are alien and everything is super saturated and storytelling. I want this dude to take my wedding photos.

2) Mario Testino
I love what he does when he's back on his home continent, everything from Brazil Vogue to his portraits from Peru. There's joy, vibrance and life in his photos not to mention gorgeous men and women wearing clothes to die for. Fashion isn't about walking down a runway with 50 yards of tulle and vinyl but people actually wearing clothes.

3) nick knight: If the model is just standing still, then they're rocking some freaky McQueen getup and have three foot tall hair, blue skin or safety pins on their face. But hardly ever do I see a picture of his where there isn't some kind of movement going on. Nothing is static, there's always ruffles or hair or limbs flying all over the place, or caught in the act .

I've finally gone through every episode of every season of anything that was the right file type for the PS3 to play. Time to switch to the old laptop and watch everything that wouldn't play. Which includes Mad Men, Deadwood, and the sixth season of House. I'll start with Mad Men. I have a hard time believing everyone was really that drunk and lets just say 'abrupt' (which means such an a-hole) in the 60's.

That's my take on half of season one so far...At least the women have more interesting problems than the men.

Vacation officially over

I have returned. Today. Although my flight got back in Wed. afternoon, it's taken until Saturday to truly finally return to almost normal. I say almost because for the first time in like six years I picked up a bucket ( small bucket shaped container) of prunes. And have been eating them instead of lunch for three days. 

They're certainly shaking things up, down, and a little side to side. Not in a good way. 

But other than that vacation has officially ended. I've cleaned the kitchen. 

One of my students has successfully online stalked me and found me on fb, reminding me to be careful what kind of vacation pictures I post.
