Super Mario

s

Oh to have Mario Testino as your wedding photographer. Have you seen these shots of Kate Moss’s wedding to musician Jamie Hince? Fairytale indeed, I’m loving the seventies vibe. Do you think they make the page boy’s military jacket in my size?

Mila’s daydreams

s

Such a cute idea – Adele Enerson spent her maternity leave blogging pictures of her daughter, Mila, against imaginative backdrops while she was sleeping. To be published in a book soon.

Hipstamatic, baby

Lysianthus

I know it’s très boring to bang on about how much you love your iPhone, but I’ve gone all gaga over the old-school effect of the Hipstamatic Camera app… this is what all our family pics from my childhood looked like! Who needs high-def when you can be livin’ in the seventies?

Roses - picture by Sharyn Cairns

I’ve just spent an enjoyable half hour reading through the latest entries on Natalie Walton’s lovely site, Daily Imprint, and came upon these pics by Sharyn Cairns.

How funny – I clipped out these exact same images from Inside Out a while back and stored them in my inspirations folder. I even took the one above along to an art class I was taking, to put me in mind of something I could draw. It may also be the reason I felt so drawn to chemistry bottles for a while there: I bought some for next-to-nix from Brady’s Used Furniture, but if you’re looking for something similar, Mitchell Rd Auction House usually has a good selection of antique medical and science equipment to bid on as well. They do indeed make excellent vases.

I just stumbled across these stunning images by Cade Martin, a photographer based in Washington, DC.

Yowsers – aren’t they stunning? If you click on his site, check out the pics under ‘Newest’, and flick through all those ballet shots… I love how each of them tells a rich story. Forget about a thousand words, these are more like novellas in picture form.

Feeling Fornasetti

Marian's Fornasetti moment

Marian's Fornasetti moment

My friend Marian has led a colourful life. With her late husband, Gordon Clarke – a filmmaker and photographer – she travelled around the world before settling down in Balmain here in Sydney.

Over morning tea recently she showed me some of Gordon’s pictures from the 1960s. I adore portraits – my favouite place in London is the National Portrait Gallery – so I was enthralled. This is an image he took of Marian, and it reminded me so much of the famous soprano Lina Cavalieri from a Piero Fornasetti drawing, I begged to borrow it so I could share it here. My plan is to have it digitally printed on white canvas before turning it into a cushion. Marian has given me her blessing.
