Sous un autre lumière
A thunderstorm is coming tonight and I am barefoot in the studio thinking too much-
I hate walking away from things—abandoning something I have invested in. I know by now it is all part of the process, but it doesn’t make it any less frustrating. I have struck out twice in a row on the last two books I have been working on. I’m hoping the current one won’t be such a battle.
Droves of candy colored chairs have appeared in Harvard Yard. That unto itself is delightful…and then I realized they are the same chairs that are in the Jardin des Tuileries. It makes me really happy.
I took the above photo with a Holga camera I borrowed from a friend. I brought one roll of 120 film with me to Paris and the notoriously tempermental Holga yielded only one negative. I have no idea why the color came out such a particular violet and green. I love it.
