horrifying self portrait

Boulder Gothic

this was a lot of fun to shoot. but when i set out to create this image – inspired by Grant Woods’ American Gothic – i had no idea how frightening we would look. i am accustomed to disliking photos of myself – but egads!!! rather than exactly replicate the work, I have represented what I remembered from seeing it.

a few things i learned:

  • be careful what you wish for
  • there are only three homes in Boulder with gothic windows  (there is one home with a Gothic window in Gold Hill, but it wasn’t on the second floor.)
  • post-production is everything when it comes to meeting the standard of your mind’s eye (the actual work isn’t quite as doom and gloom)

if we do this again, i think i will select less grim subject matter. something a bit more uplifting.

venus on the half shell anyone?

Happy Halloween!

cheers, dana

flower friday: daffodils


since the snow has been so lame this year, i am really ready for spring. the brown, brown, brown has to go. so far, nothing has popped up here. soon i hope.

i picked up some daffodils at the store the other day and have been loving everything about them. they smell so good. this morning i decided to play around a little with them.

which is your favorite photo?

i got flowers!


i was so excited this valentine’s day. you see, my honey is out of town. well, that’s a bit of an understatement. he is in vietnam on a walkabout. soooooo, when Love in Bloom delivered this gorgeous vase of flowers, quelle surprise!

Rather than the standard, worn out red, Shanti created a purple, green and orange work of art. It was creative and different, right up my alley.

Do you keep fresh flowers during the cold, long winter?

cheers, dana
