new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

a gift from theresa

fingerless gloves by t does wool
like it? click it!

theresa lasichak -- aka t does wool -- is a talented photographer friend of mine on flickr. i've previously posted a gallery of her wonderful work on my blog.

some people have more than their fair share of talent, and theresa's overflows everywhichway. she creates inspiring imagery but is also 'a handworker of fibers, maker of things, wife, mother, consoler, and fixer of just about everything'. to that, i'll add a great friend.

theresa maintains a blog where you can browse through her cozy, beautifully knits, skillfully and lovingly photographed by herself.

i was thrilled when, a few weeks ago, theresa announced that she was knitting a pair of fingerless gloves for me! i adore fingerless gloves, especially since i need to wear something in the cold, but also want to be able to control my camera. i always have a pair in the winter, but they're usually plain, store-bought items.

you can imagine how happy i was when i finally received them in the mail... i've been wearing them at the slightest hint of cold, even though the winter's been exceedingly mild in athens so far.

thank you, thank you, theresa!

to do justice to this lovely pair, i needed a model with pretty hands -- of course, that would be my muse.
