i got a second shot
hi everybody! hope you’re having a relaxing evening at home as you surf the wonderful web. guess where ALL the above images came from including the top one? the domino website. (have you written to them yet to at least keep the website)? just asking cause i’m embarrassed to tell you how many hours i was on their site that first day. i collected over 300 pictures from there, one prettier than the next. but then i crashed last week and all my pics were gone…18,000 in total over the years! but thanks to my dear young dad he was able to retrieve them yesterday (remotely at that) and save the day! danke dad! (i vow to back up better =)
truth is i also had saved a bunch of things when i went to the conde nast website store to search for a contact name and was blown away by their collection too! who knows how many more hours were lost over there that day
anyway the whole thing got me thinking about saving images. what am i waiting for? thank god for blogging. we can empty our folders and share them with each other. i bet you have tons of stuff too, right?
anyway, if you have to have a reason to write conde nast about keeping the domino website up, this is about as good as it will get
the site is loaded with history
wonderful images of america, month by month
capsules of color and hope
and they’re suitable for framing…
in fact they sell the service.
funny thing is that they really make great artwork
and it just goes to show how deep decorating is in our culture, how much we enjoy it and always have
so if you have some time go get lost
i have to go now but wanted to share some that were saved in my files.
but what’s the use in keeping them
in a folder for some time in the future
i’m gonna be unloading my archives, my files are stuffed. what about yours? do you love to save images for a rainy day? what are your plans for them?
no one but an obsessed nut could go thru it all their stuff..
domino is in a league with classics that conde nast has let come and go
domino mag sure is part of a colorful past. at least now they’re collectors items, instant classics.
but if you still at least want the website don’t forget to write to them. i personally think it’s an important body of work that should be respected just like any of the magazines above. it’s a new era. maybe blogs are the new magazines and magazines are the new books! well then sites are the new encyclopedias! come on conde, don’t leave us hangin!
(i even found lucite hangers on their site. nuf said)? bon nuit!
