Nagi Sakai

Aside from making beautiful photographs, Nagi Sakai seems to always have a great stylist.  I particularly love the styling in these images.  They remind me of Free People, which is probably why I am drawn to them.  The location is also great and a perfect setting for the clothing. It really ads a lot of warmth to the photographs.

This last image is my favorite.  The ensemble is just wonderfully put together and I love the color scale. It's very sophisticated but still adventurous. 

Bicycles everywhere!

I was browsing the Lush Lee blog this morning and came across this image that was originally seen on New York Daily News.  It's been a while since I've seen a really different and inspiring photograph that wasn't fashion related. This was an advertisement for a bicycle shop in Altlandsberg, Germany.  There were 120 bikes mounted on this wall! I wonder how long that took....  The whole this is just very aesthetically pleasing and definitely gets some ideas flowing.

Pretty Things

I met a woman named Stacey today who has the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen.  After walking by them nearly 50 times, I decided to go photograph them today because they were looking particularly beautiful. Stacey informed me that she has to water them every day to keep them looking this way, which is apparently really rough on the electricity bill.  I guess it's worth it since they look so good, I've never seen anything like it.  These cover her fence that lines her driveway, all the way down.  She planted them from a seed 3 months ago and they already look like this! She can't even park in her driveway anymore because they have completely taken over. 

Anyway, I thought they were definitely worth sharing with everyone. Have a good Monday!

Jean Shrimpton

I was looking at 60s hair-dos for halloween ideas last night and came across this wonderful Richard Avedon photograph of Jean Shrimpton.

I had to do a little research to find out that this was from the September 1965 issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Very mod, I love it.  I can't help but wonder what they have used to make her hair do that....

Here are a few David Bailey photographs of her. Ah, I would have loved the 60's.
