RAY-BAN

I am a forever fan of RAY-BAN. Shoot, my parents have worn their classic frames ever since I can remember. Now, I am obsessing over RAY-BAN’S NEVER HIDE CAMPAIGN! Seriously, this campaign set up for their 75th anniversary is just badass. These ads show people celebrating who they are throughout past decades while not giving a shit what everyone around them thinks and I am just LOVING IT! Like a moth to a flame… I almost want to frame these bad boys.

LOCOMOTION

I was having a quick sandwich at my desk and popped on over to 20×200 where these prints immediately caught my eye, yet again! I have always been drawn to Eadweard Muybridge’s Animal Locomotion and after a more careful look I really began to become attached to these guys and felt the need to share! I just really like the feel of these and it’s like they were meant to be on my walls.

I am quite fond of the elephant (DUH!), the man with the hat and the horse. I like the exotic cat too. I am rather torn though and am not sure which one(s) to purchase. I need to decide quickly because these limited edition prints are almost SOLD OUT!!

Inspiration Wednesday.

I have always been a lover of art. I studied it in college (a lot). I go to any and all museums I can. I appreciate “most” of what I come across. Ha! Art by definition has no definition. To me, if something creates ANY type of emotion within me, I consider it art. So yes, in my eyes, it is somewhat biased. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder… right?

So one of my goals I have had for a while now is to actually purchase “real” art. Most of every frame currently adorning my walls is vintage this and vintage that. Even though I love my vintage, I am really wanting to obtain some work by actually artists. Whether it be a local artist here in Austin or a centuries old artist from who knows where. I can’t really afford to throw my whole paycheck at this, so after some shopping around I came across 20×200. Here, I can get get my hands on some for as low as 20 BUCKS. Sure, some of it is unknown and some of it is fucking weird but I was surprised by how many prints evoked an emotion from me. And now I feel the need to go play photographer. (I need to get myself a “real” camera though first!) Anyway, here are some of the prints that hit a note with me, some more personal than others.

Handsome Daguerreotype.

I am a HUGE history buff and I tend to believe that I was born in the wrong era. Well to be completely honest, there are about 20 different lives in 20 different time periods I want to live in. So I guess it’s not that I was born in the “wrong” era, I just wish I could have experienced SO many of the other time periods. So it should come as no surprise that when I came across this blog, I immediately ADORED it! It’s good to know that if I were to have lived during the days of early photography, I would have had some sexy men to swoon over!! Check out these dashing men from the days of old…



One of the first successful photographs of a human… and that’s one damn sexy human!


My boyfriend disagrees with you vehemently before taking you behind the garden shed.
