Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I turned nearly 30 but not quite. I am accepting of this.

My mom made some awesome orange cupcakes, which I frosted with orange buttercream frosting. I managed not to eat all the frosting before it graced the top of the cupcakes. 

Pictorial evidence of said cupcakes:

I got two pairs of over the knee argyle socks that I love, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, one pair of arm warmers which I am adoring on my arms right now and THE COUP DE GRACE, A Shadow Falls, Nick Brandt.

Nick Brandt is one of my all-time favorite photographers. I love his work, how he manipulates light and captures large, beautiful animals in intimate, personal ways. These are portraits, and I am certain there is a Nick Brandt print hanging from some lion's tree. Seriously.

An example:

Picture by Nick Brandt, please visit website and buy his books. You can buy them for me. I'll put them in every room I have - bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, also on window seat.

Lovely birthday, I must say.

Yeah Brandt is awesome. Have you seen his setups though? Lets just say he's not a natural light shooter, though he does make it seem like the lighting is totally organic. He brings crazy amounts of gear to remote shoots. I think he's a Phase1 shooter...again crazy expensive gear. But hey...he's a pro so he deserves it :)

happy birthday! i love my knee high socks. my legs got too chubby for over the knee socks to stay up anymore, but when i was skinnier i loved them too! back in the day i used to wear thigh high striped socks and short little skirts.
