I am a diarist of ordinary moments that move me. I gravitate towards black and white photography but still celebrate color. I love the candid capture but respect the power of the choreographed moment. I study the rules of phos+graphis but am compelled periodically to ignore them.
Inspiration: There's probably nothing more ubiquitous in fashion at the moment than the leopard print. But how can one not love and covet it. It's so glamorous! I tend to love leopard on my feet to liven up what is usually a monochrome outfit (hello - I am sure that you aren't surprised to learn that I wear a lot of black, white and grey!). One of my favorite pairs of shoes are a pair of leopard print Guiseppe Zanotti short boots with a red patent leather wedge heel. I've practically worn the print off those boots, though!
Inspiration: I know. Another photo from Bryant Park. And you're asking: "What about the rest of New York?" The thing is - I took a ton of photos during New York Fashion Week. So much so that the blog is sort of stuck in that moment in time and is seemingly becoming more about matters of style. Despite what you've been seeing from me lately, I don't intend to turn the blog solely into a visual discourse on style and fashion and soon you will see more every-day non-style photos nottaken at Bryant Park. That said, my Bryant Park experience offered an interesting break from my usual work. It gave me an opportunity to observe, all in one spot, a number of fashionistas and sartorialists. And, more importantly, I was able to take more portraits - something l really enjoy doing. So back to more about guys and scarves. Lately, I am seeing more people take two scarves and work them into a nice warm bundle around their necks. I like the look, but I can barely handle one scarf (I wasn't graced with the longest neck in the world), much less two.
Inspiration: Maybe I don't give guys enough credit when it comes to accessorizing with scarves. Maybe that's why I was pleasantly surprised by his use of a more decorative paisley scarf instead of the usual monochrome wool or cashmere.
Inspiration: She was, in my mind, perfectly mixed and matched. She wore a bit of yesterday and a bit of today, leopard print offset by stripes, hefty Acne wedges softened by a girly hat bedecked with a bow.
