First day of school.

Getting ready for the first day of a new semester

Documenting my new back to school ensemble: rust colored shirt and jingly earrings that remind me of peacock feathers

and getting distracted by the textures, patterns, and curiosities of the bathroom my mother decorated in the seventies

lovingly touching them through a lens 

photographing objects of the past while embarking on something new

illuminating the trinity while i'm at it

Focusing


but not too much
Wondering how to fuse intellectual activities with the creative thrust that makes life
worth living. Hoping that I can manipulate the two causing them to push up on each other's edges this semester.

Taking, editing, and uploading pictures is relaxing. 
It is the quickest and most gratifying way to connect and explore artistically.
I don't need to be in a "zone," just a subject that intrigues me.
Art journaling can be more of a struggle.
Still searching
for a personal, effortless style.
 
wish me luck! xo lara

Hey Booby!
Sharing the dusty nook with the world! Good--we shouldn't be the selfish about our dust. Awesome pictures--the colors are fabulous and I see some of the most grungy features looking like art.

You have a GREAT eye for photography.
And I LOVE your wall with the posters on them.
