Affront to Fashion

Posted by

Yesterday I got sidetracked in one of those internet vortexes when someone linked to a bunch of outfit-a-day blogs. A lot of these fashion bloggers are shaped like me. This is awesome. It’s refreshing to see what clothes look like on people who look like me, because if I am shopping for clothes online, the […]

Posted by

A friend of mine contacted me last week to see if I’d shoot his band Ephemeral Sun (myspace for listening purposes) during rehearsal so they could have some pictures of them actually playing their instruments.

This cold snap is all my fault.

Posted by

In our kitchen. That we then ate. If you know me and my indifference or perhaps loathing of cooking, you know […]

Birkenstock Mania

Posted by

Much of the time, I can be pretty cynical about marketing ploys. But recently someone tweeted about the @BirkenstockUSA 365 blog project, sourced entirely out of owners’ and fans’ pictures from flickr. And wouldn’t you know I went back for some reason and looked at practically the whole archive and in the process fell into […]
