thursday




I am convinced that vegetables are the most photogenic of all inanimate objects. Film soaks up all of those radish reds, kale greens, and zinnia golds in such a way that my heart climbs up to my throat just to peer out and see. After developing that roll of film last week, I am horrendously obsessed. Luckily my life is providing events worthy of 35mm documentation (though, really, I'm happy to photograph just about anything right now). As soon as I finish this paper on the ethics of film preservation I'll be sure to share my photographs from the Jazz Age Lawn Party and my plan to make my great-gram proud. However, I'm not sure I'll be able to focus on the moral implications of splicing and the consequences of vinegar syndrome when I have a weekend apple-picking trip ahead! Cheers!

  1. i couldn't agree more! and while I don't have nearly the same photog skills as you, every time I'm at the farmer's market (which lately has been twice a week) all I want to do is snap pictures of all the displays! radishes are the most photogenic IMHO.

  10. ugh, you're killing me. i'm moving to brooklyn in the springtime and your blog is no help to my own growing impatience! in which neighborhood do you reside?? i'm narrowing it down between park slope and greenpoint, myself. though for now i'd just like to borrow your life for a minute, you don't mind right?

  11. So beautiful! The radishes are gorgeous.

    Suzy, sorry to interject. I just moved away from Park Slope to Colorado. (WAH!) But I loved every minute of it. There's a co-op there where you work a few hours a month in exchange for some fresh veggies & fruits. Sigh, I miss Brooklyn.
