I've always loved color photographs from the 40's and 50's. It's as if the world was rendered in a completely different set of colors....a box of Magic Markers heavy on the 'magic'... add a State Fair to the colorful equation and my eyes are shiny bright with joy....Teddy the Wrestling Bear, a man in profile against a wall of orange and three lovely ladies from the "Girlie" show....what more could a wandering eye want?

In my thrillingly delusional existence as a world renowned designer, stylist, photographer, writer, flea-market scavenger and tap dancer my wandering eyes chance upon many items of wonder and beauty. This blog is where I share my visual discoveries. Thanks for wandering over and taking a look.
