I took some friends out to 319 South around the Green Point area.  The road runs along the beach and several of the beaches are covered in tree stumps and driftwood.  It’s crazy beautiful and looks like a strange make-believe land.





We were on the tiniest strip of a beach, but we could really imagine that we were off on some deserted island!  Check out these behind-the-scenes shots:

I am so in love with the trailer for the Where the Wild Things Are movie that is coming out this October (so far away!!!)  The light and the scenery are so magical and I love how Spike Jonze brings imagination to life.  This was one of my favorite children's books, and I think the film is going to be fabulous.

I went shopping for Thank You cards to mail out after graduation and saw the most fabulous cards ever.  They're Kate Spade, and naturally they were $25 and not Thank You cards, so I forced myself to not buy five sets right then and there.  One set says, "How the devil are you?" and the other set says, "See you later, alligator."

Today I had another 2 pm breakfast to photograph and post on Flickr.  This time I had pie & ice cream.  Yum!


I don’t think I’ve ever eaten pie for breakfast before.  After breakfast on several occasions.  But never for before.

What are some things that you’ve never done before?  Try doing one today!

Railroad Square Art Park is probably one of the coolest collection of buildings in Tallahassee–even though they’re all old warehouses!  The crazy colors and textures of the warehouse walls are just as fun and wild as the people and shops that they house.  I’d only ever been to Railroad Square on a First Friday (and if you’ve ever been as well, you know how many people turn out!), but I wanted to take a friend there on a quiet evening to photograph.  It’s funny how different a place can be when it’s empty!  There were a few people out walking, but even if there had been no one there, we wouldn’t have alone because there is so much character in the walls.

An always sunny window made Heather want to jump for joy…



Don’t you just love the color??

I had Heather put on her oh-so-cool aviators for this grunge wall:


It’s so much fun going on shoots with more than one person because there’s more teasing and laughing with whoever the camera is pointed at, and I get silly grills like Laura’s:


And giggles (I called it a guffaw and was asked if I was 80) like Heather’s:


Heather and Laura and I are all huge Top Gear fans (and anglophiles in general).  If you’ve never seen the show, it’s a car show on BBC.  The best way to describe it would probably be Tool Time, for cars, hosted by Brits.  And while we mostly watch it for the great laughs, we’ve all sort of become car obsessed along the way.  So we were quite delighted to find a garage of old Porsches at Railroad Square!  This snazzy red one is “Laura’s.”


We probably shouldn’t have been sitting on the cars… but if it’s “yours,” what’s a girl to do?  We found some alternate transportation as well, a la Syd Barrett.
