The Cyclists

It is incredible how bicycles can have as much comical character as the people who ride them. It reminds me of that brilliant scene in Jacques Tati's 1970's film "Trafic", in which every driver sitting in traffic has the attributes of his/her automobile.

of russian spy cameras

As long as I can remember I have always wanted to live in a different era. Perhaps during the heyday of Federico Fellini's career, like a misplaced character from one of his films, leading a very 8 1/2 life. In that spirit, I have been experimenting of late with a Holga camera given to me & my husband by one incredibly talented photographer. Or as I like to call it, my Russian Spy Camera. I adore the timeless & antiquated quality of the photos...

of fish & bowls

In a dark corner of the bazaar in Old Jaffa, I discovered a Persian Jewish man selling beautiful antiques from Isfahan. Beautifully eye-catching colour...(I bought the yellow one).
p.s. A million thanks to Krystuccia for making me artist of the week at her brilliant blog!
