Pepsi Sign
Asaf and Yo'ah
fujifilm instax

hello, hello! i took the photo of the pepsi-cola sign in long island city last week during jen's visit and didn't think much of it, until she quickly convinced me otherwise. my brother always complained that photos with the sky blown-out weren't any good, but i'm starting to think he is wrong. the crane you see in the background had construction workers walking on it way up high and boy was it cold.

the stone sculptures named asaf and yo'ah by boaz vaadia were at the time warner center and fantastic - kind of ufo-ish. earlier this summer scott and i stumbled upon his studio in williamsburg and were just amazed by boaz's work. each layer is a hand carved piece of stone and stacked one on top of another with a little help from a threaded rod + glue. enjoy your weekend!

ps the winner of the calendar+ giveaway is erika and i have one extra to send to anna. hurray, another excuse to go shopping! each calendar is hand cut and although i'm not able to print it on linen any longer, i can do so on matte photo paper. so, if anyone else wants to do some sort of trade, let me know. i'm going to be trying fine art paper next week and that might be very nice.

pps we had great news yesterday about charlie's early stage lung cancer. the doctor thought that after three radiation treatments he might be totally cured. good thing too because he was a brat this week and thisclose to getting an extended time-out ;)!

Thanks everyone! I'm a little skeptical about the diagnosis, but will go with it because he feels more optimistic now and that is important!

What a wonderful post - the pics, the news, me getting a calendar!!! All very good, though obviously on different plains of good. Don't want it to sound like me getting a calendar is remotely as good as Charlie's prognosis.

Krissy said...

bummer I didn't win that amazing calendar of yours :(
