O Joyous Day!



So Sunday, instead of my normal hibernation I packed up suitcases of hats and vintage wear, scarves and the like and headed over to my friend Daynas house for a photo shoot. I swear it was all fun and no work... we shot for about 3 hours, in a variety of hats and then had a lunch of Hummus, feta, kalamata olives and cucumbers on feta, delicious! Daynas home is full of curiosities and I could go back and wander around for hours looking at everything and taking lots of pictures as I went. Dayna is an amazing artist and teacher and I have learned a great deal from her, so it was exciting to be in her space and get to see what inspires her. I got home and reworked some of the photos, some traditionally and some not so much as the one above - and had free rein to play away, after she debuts them on her own website I'll post more here...

What a fun surprise to discover this post! I've been a busy madwoman since Sunday and haven't had time to really relish the wonderful photos you took. I'm hoping that Friday is the day that I get to play with them, do a post on my blog, and to upload new profile photos. . . . I'm smiling.

Shelby, I posted on Dayna's blog and knew I had to post here as well. Your shoot with Dayna was inspired. It certainly inspired me! I can hardly wait to see more of your photo play.
