thank you Hollister Hovey
for introducing me to the wonderful photography of

In particular the series entitled 

the stillness is incredibly moving
and yet, so many voices, conversations and thoughts
  held in the air forever.

I will have this on my wall

Waiting with a resilience of spirit, in the certain
knowledge that, if we wait long enough and if we
are true to ourselves, then things will make sense,
is waiting in hope. 
And this is the work of the prophet in hope.
Sister Stanislaus Kennedy

I said to my soul be still and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing;
wait without love
For love would be love for the wrong thing;
there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting
                                                                                 T S Eliot
it often feels like I am waiting, 
and not knowing what I am waiting for 
waiting for something to pass
waiting for something to begin
waiting for elements to fall into place

sometimes waiting can be lonely

i wish i was a butterfly, or a fox maybe

it took these photographs,
which include both taxidermy and fashion,
to cheer my heart today

thanks miss moss

visited the historic French taxidermy shop 
that originally inspired the 
butterfly, cat, beetle and fox patterned range

I ain't lookin' to compete with you
Beat or cheat or mistreat you
Simplify you, classify you
Deny, defy or crucify you
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

No, and I ain't lookin' to fight with you
Frighten you or tighten you
Drag you down or drain you down
Chain you down or bring you down
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I ain't lookin' to block you up
Shock or knock or lock you up
Analyze you, categorize you
Finalize you or advertise you
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I don't want to straight-face you
Race or chase you, track or trace you
Or disgrace you or displace you
Or define you or confine you
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I don't want to meet your kin
Make you spin or do you in
Or select you or dissect you
Or inspect you or reject you
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you.

I don't want to fake you out
Take or shake or forsake you out
I ain't lookin' for you to feel like me
See like me or be like me
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you

To amuse myself on the tube I often try to work passengers out according to their shoes.
Maybe, but I think you can tell a lot about someone by their footwear.

A bit like how I always like to visit the bathroom in 
someone's house / at a restaurant / in a hotel 
it says a lot.

So I have decided to photograph a few of these people,
no faces involved so I think it's ok to do that non?

1. Handsome Boy

 2. Clementine off of Eternal Sunshine

3. Wellington Biker Boots

Pure Harte Spring/Summer 2011

my beautiful lady friend has only gone and done it again

Pure Harte Spring/Summer 2011 collection

aren't they simply stunning?

I love the playful details and how all the dresses and skirts 
just seem to float about in such a girlie way

And this collection is handmade using only 
organic fairtrade material
... so it's ethical too! 

I want to be one of those girls that wears a dress like that
