Orange countertops

Back to spying on the delicious housing stock in Indiana...where vintage classics like orange countertops never go out of style. The owners keep it fresh by pairing their heirloom with contemporary appliances.

I must be one of twelve people on the planet who prefer the soothing blocky shapes of seventies domestic architecture.

Someone on Flickr shared their batch of Instamatic photos. I have an instant camera somewhere in the house.

These photos, when done well, have a soft and mysterious beauty.

Just an example on why someone might want to preserve their old instant photos, or pick up some extra film from Ebay.

American grammar

Jan. 14th, 2011 | 03:41 am

As soon as the weather warms up, I plan another local excursion to photograph classic American vernacular buildings and landscapes.

Found this and other beauties on a real estate site, one of my favorite pastimes of late.




Please note: I apologize for the ads and the fact that my livejournal no longer has its original visual appeal. I hate having a big ugly ad next to my pretty pictures. I am extremely picky about visuals and intend to rectify this matter soon.

The cold weather has gotten to me.

I want a REAL sweater!

Nov. 15th, 2010 | 09:25 am

Like the kind you get on sale when you are on vacation.

The thin, dull sweaters found everywhere are an insult to the native peoples of the earth.

I found one. It is from Nepal, on sale for $99.

The aesthetics of clean

Oct. 25th, 2010 | 09:32 am

I can't decide which inspires me more, this Comcast article about around the house cleaners (I'm a big fan of Hints from Heloise), or the lovely art direction. The pink and blue glasses and the yellow plates are a fresh nostalgic touch.

Hive Modern chairs

I loved the textiles on these simple chairs from Hive Modern so much I did a little interior concept around them. I like how they go with light, dark or bright colors.
