Hello, I didn’t plan to post till New Year’s Day but we have fallen in love with our new camera, a Canon Rebel 2Ti EOS 550D and wanted to share some shots.
There was just enough net funds in the bank account of my pathetic business to cover the excellent Costco price, so we had a Santa moment and put that sucker in the cart next to the giant bag of cat food.
We took a trip to Oakland to purchase some silk from Piedmont Fabrics for this cardigan.
My silk choices look very similar to the ones pictured above. I would show you but the fabric is still line drying from the preshrinking.
We couldn’t resist trying some stealth photography in Piedmont.
Jeans and sneakers rule but these ladies looked festive.
Martin cut a figure in his hat.
The Mondrian scarf always gets attention.
Indoors you can see details like this.
And in this lighting I don’t mind Martin’s candid shots.
Night photography is now a possibility.
This handsome person is cooking tonight.
This is not a style shot. I thought I’d grabbed the large Eileen Fisher ponte pants to wear while my medium ones line dry but grabbed the medium short cropped pants instead. Nevermind. I never left the house today.
The white converse laces were looking dingy so I changed them out for the black ones that came as an alternate pair. It gave me ideas. Different colored laces! Different colored sneakers! I feel cool just thinking about these Spring 2012 possibilities.
Warning: the remaining shots are from the old Canon point and shoot.
Remember that red charmeuse top? I realized that it says only one thing: Christmas!
Not really an every day top to wear with jeans. Disappointed!
Martin ordered this 1950s shirt pattern, redesigned that sucker six ways to Sunday until it fit perfectly, and voila!
Look at the gorgeousness.
No person in their right mind would spend the amount of time Martin did making sure that the yolk would lie on his back in a perfect horizontal line.
I love the French cuffs, and the pleating!
And my sweetie thinks he is not an artist.
Happy festivities everyone!
