things i love thursday, on friday

I was pretty busy yesterday and it got late before I had time to make a TILT post...so now it's a day late, but the point is still the same.  I love stuff this week and I made a list about it:

  • The very first issue of Foodshed Magazine is back from the printer!  It's our new project and it's very exciting.  
  • Low-lying fog...I also love high-sitting fog that obscures the top of mountains, but this week I really fancy the stuff that lays in valleys.  
  • Lavender!  I had the opportunity to shoot a local lavender farm this week for the next issue of the magazine and it was such a beautiful and fragrant afternoon!
  • The leaves in VA right now.  I think they're at their peak...guess I need to take advantage before they all fall down and everything goes to sleep for the winter.
  • My 80-200 lens...I haven't gotten much use out of it but I am making a point to shoot with it when possible...it's truly wonderful and should serve me well tomorrow at the wedding I'm shooting (my first one on my own!!)

things i love thursday

  • APPLES!  They are so beautiful and they are the perfect food.  I will not tire of photographing them, especially in their wooden crates.
  • this print by Suzi Marshall.  I saw it the other day and immediately decided I needed a print of it, so I sent her a message and she so kindly listed it on Society6 for me!  It's on its way to me...can't wait to hang it in the house Evin and I should one day (soon) have!
  • cozy clothes, 'cause it's getting COLD outside!
  • explanation videos by CGP Grey on Youtube.  CAUTION: SERIOUS TIME-SUCK.  Once you start watching, it's hard to stop!  He cracks me up.
  • my Ireland book, which finally arrived yesterday.  SUCH a long time in the making!  Of course I immediately found 3 mistakes, but I'm not surprised.  Impatience will do that to you.
  • Bryan Nash Gill.  There's a little page on him in the October issue of Martha Stewart Living (to which my amazing fiance bought me a subscription on his iPad) about his woodcut prints.  The e-version of the magazine has little videos thrown in and there was a video of Mr. Gill talking about his work...stunning.  And I pulled a personally inspiring/motivational quote from that clip, too...
I guess my process is very organic.  They're things that come to me, and they're not going to come to me if I'm not working.  I mean, I can't call myself a sculptor if I'm not sculpting, I can't call myself a painter if I'm not painting, I can't call myself a printer if I'm not printing, and it's through that process of working where I get a lot of my ideas.
