My favorite one is the bright carnival rides with skies about to break overhead. What a pairing.
Adams also takes daytime photographs and keeps that same emotion.
I'm realizing The Twilight Zone connection here. Another obsession of mine.

Someone hand me an Oscar.
Those are my photos above, but I'm including some photos below I found, but who knows where. (Sorry, let me know if they're yours!) I like mine though because they keep the dark mysterious corners.

One friend quotes me as saying something I can't recall, yet I still believe I said it. As he discussed sports, I said, "I don't sweat."
Not that I don't physically, I just don't prefer to. I hate working out! I like to dance, but it's not fun when it's at the gym and presented like jazzercise. What a drag. What I like to do is walk on the treadmill while talking on the phone or listening to music, counting down the minutes anxiously.
This gym set might totally inspire me to get my workout on. My favorite piece is the headband. It seems so Wes Anderson - maybe a bit loud - but his brother created the sweet drawings on the coolest set of luggage designed by Marc Jacobs. It was featured in The Darjeeling Limited.

Mad Men is set on Madison Avenue in the 60's.
Nuff said, right?
I'm obsessed with that era... particularly the glimpse we get in Breakfast At Tiffany's.
I haven't even seen an episode, but maybe I'll inspire a few of you to Tivo it like I will be doing Thursday night on AMC.
Once you see this clip you will either get it... or you won't.
For those of us who do... I understand why this was nominated for a million Emmys this year.
Guy Bourdin. Seriously, who is not influenced by him? I blogged before about Madonna's Hollywood video, but There's Dave LaChapelle's stunning photography and I just found Stella McCartney's cute homage to him in an H&M ad airing in the UK. Check it out!

This is actually linked to yesterday's post. (More Kanye) Homecoming is his love letter to Chicago after all...

We had the most fantastic Friday night. I forgot to take photos at dinner - the best part! - but I did remember to take photos at Teddy's.
We were supposed to go for my friend's birthday and never made it. She heard the DJs were incredible so that intrigued me. They did not disappoint. I've included a few tracks on the playlist.
I can't get enough of the throwback new wave fashion & folks were dancing and bouncing around like hippies or popping and locking. I loved it.

What is this intricate, beautiful flower? I could hardly believe it was real when I saw it. There are at least 7 layers! You can't even see the wonderful vines that wrap and knot around the stalk more perfect than any florist's creation.
I admit I plucked this outrageous beauty from a vine when I ditched the Mr. Brainwash show after waiting in high heels for a half-hour. For an art opening. The flower was the best part of the night!
(There were plenty of other flowers, so don't think I'm so terrible.)

I wish summer would last forever as it is right now. Hot, steamy and sunny.
