cleaning up my desktop


Alfred Stieglitz

bonsoir good friends! hope you’re having a good night in when you read this :)

above is nyc in winter of 1892. it’s my first out of new york in 20 years!


you know how you collect stuff every day and then start to lose it in folders and the shuffle? i’ve been tying make a couple of deadlines and focus on finishing things (my achilles heel). i keep saving things on my desktop, i have no idea where they’re from but just wanted to post them instead of filing them away. they’re just inspiration for me, hope for you too. of course there are about 100 more but i really should get back to work!


but i have the links in my history and will add then when i get a chance. right. i will try!

wouldn’t these would be cool for a coloring book? or is it just me…

    I loe the miniatures and the Icart Beautiful as always Claudia!!!


  5. petunia replied:

    “Santa Baby” made me sad for the first time ever this year. I usually grab my favorite boa and prance around like an idiot when I hear Eartha sing it. This year it was another loss on the pile of losses racked up in 2008. I love the picture you posted of her.

    Darling, simply fabulous! As always.
    NYC will look like that tomorrow, we’re expecting 4-8″ of the white stuff.
    I got lost in the miniature world, totally amazing!
    I too agree, clean that desk off more often.
    ; )

    jamie, do you know which blog the pic was from? add labeling my photos part of my new regime. and i agree to tidy up more often. random stream of consciousness posting is fun and cleansing!


  20. Denali replied:

    The New York picture is definitely Alfred Stieglitz.
    An amazing photographer that I’m sure you couldn’t possibly duplicate.


  21. theparisapartment replied:

    thanks denali! i’ll credit him, and you’re right, those days are long gone, at least the horse and carriage. It’s actually a snow storm in the city as i type this so some things will never change. it would be cool to shoot the exact angle today.
