i spent some time late october/early november in ohio, west virginia, virginia, maryland and michigan.

Larry Gerthoffer left me a voicemail that made me smile. in a way, i am glad i missed the call right then, just because i can listen to it again.

Fractured Fairy Tales by Larry Gerthoffer

he is just delightful. i like people who have a sense of calm and peace to them, people who haven’t lost their sense of wonder.

i’d never had clay on places other than my face. i really liked how that felt on my fingers. and the stiffness and crackling of it when it dries. and the smell of it, too. kind of made me want to learn how to make pottery. i guess in some way, i was pottery.

O U by Larry Gerthoffer

it was a very quiet halloween. i usually like to spend it going to parties and/or observing all the chaos in south beach. but maybe what i really needed was a large pot full of warm clay.

crackle, crackle

i am in the philippines working on a project. been here a week so far and still getting used to everything. when i first arrived, i was staying in a very nice resort – something i’ve never really done before (i’m a motel 6 kinda girl). the light in my room was just amazing. one afternoon, feeling a bit introspective, i shot these.

i was in this air conditioned paradise and just outside the window with the gorgeous light, it is the third world. a slight feeling of guilt, yet i know this fancy hotel is great for the economy.

the fun part of this shoot is that it was all hand-held. typically, i use a tripod. this is much easier and more precise. but my tripod is gigantic and i had no intention of traveling around the world with it. so there was a bit of challenge to get decent angles without my arm’s shadow or odd muscle flexing in the frame. and my hand was a bit sore from holding it up. this is the one time i was thankful to have my little rebel xt instead of the 5d of my dreams.

i have a love-hate relationship with my belly button. mostly now, i have grown to accept it for what it is. just as i have with my nose, my chin, my chest, my thin frame and the birthmark over my lip. i wonder why it is so many of us have such negative feelings about our bodies. i’m not going to blame the media because i was never really all too interested in tv or magazines and i feel i got more ideas of what is “normal” or “beautiful” from the people around me. i was pretty much dawn weiner growing up. but now, i’m happy with myself, imperfections and all.

unfortunately my room now doesn’t have such great light. 🙁
