What's new?

I've been distracted; we got a dog!  I can't be bothered to even turn on the computer in the evenings when there are walks to take and snuggles to occupy my lap.  His name is LeRoi, he's a 1.5 year old boxer, and I'll post pictures when I have some good ones.  I guess that's one thing about not having a cell phone - I can't take dozens of spontaneous pictures of my pets!  We'll do a photoshoot when the sun comes out this weekend.  In the meantime, here's me.  New haircut, favourite newly thrifted shirt...

Tilda the Muse

There can't be many photographers who wouldn't swoon at the chance to work with Tilda Swinton, but she and Tim Walker do kind of seem like a dream team.  Weird and whimsical, spooky but beautiful; what a creative vision.  She's one of those actors to whom I feel such a connection because of their on-screen roles and their personal style, yet her real life is totally out of the public eye.  I'm content with the image I have of her and I have no interest in seeing her in the "celebs are just like us" section of the tabloids, pumping gas or taking out the garbage!

spots and stripes

We've had a whole week of sunshine and heat and it's so fantastic!  The summer clothes come out, the garden starts to pick up steam - the only thing driving me nuts is the crows making a racket at five in the morning.  I got these red and white striped pants and these heels at the thrift store last week.  I love the detail on the heel of the shoes, and I made it through most of the day at work in them, so they aren't too uncomfortable!  The rain is supposed to be back this weekend, so I've been making the most of the sun all week - shorts every day.
