My friends can attest that I’m often quite flighty when it comes to what creative mood I happen to be exploring at the moment. My most recent, aside from maintaining this blog, has been photography. A friend recently sold me his used NIKON D40X camera and I’ve been in heaven since (OK, so I haven’t picked up the camera in like 3 weeks – flighty).
I don’t know a damn thing about photography, proper lighting, the correct lens settings, focusing etc. But somehow I manage and I’m actually not so bad. I seem to have an eye for it… if I do say so myself.
Occasionally a photograph captures my attention and I just stare endlessly. I seem to favor high-fashion photography and looooooove black and whites. While sifting through my latest issue of Marie Claire’s ‘Things that make us love October‘ I was held captive by the glorious image that you see here. Of course I immediately googled Ruven Afanador’s work and committed to adding this to my coffee table book collection. The book becomes available on October 1st. I can’t wait to own it. It’s simply divine!
