trouvée: the photographer

No date ~ no inscription. Found this past summer at an antique store in Michigan.

Lots of good stuff today:

* sun pictures (take some time to explore)
* Someone's Life: Photographs Collected by Gerard Malanga (more here!)
* The Case of the Inappropriate Alarm Clock (a link from JTL)
* 3191: Evenings

And a celebration of a great photographer: Irving Penn, 1917 - 2009

Today marked the end of five loooooong weeks of jury duty. Hurrah! I am looking forward to getting my life back on an even keel ~ and catching up on sleep, bills, laundry, and blog reading! I know I owe a lot of you emails ~ I haven't forgotten, and promise to be in touch soon. Lots planned here for next week, including a guest post. And coming up in November: book week!

Cheers...and happy, happy friday!

I salute your heroic civic service. You got out in time to still enjoy mega fall produce. I've ordered the organic farm/table book you recommended. Looking forward to it. Happy nesting.

You must be relieved. You deserve a weekend of peaceful alone time. :-) xx

I've been called for jury duty but never picked. I was always curious to have the experience but also glad to escape. It is a true civic duty and nice to think to someone like yourself making those decisions. Thanks. And thanks for mentioning Penn. Great obit in the NYTimes and hundreds of his images floating in my mind's eye. I still have some clippings from Vogue of those wonderful dead flowers he did.
