The great flat white

Photographed by Rogier Jansen
NYC, NY - March 2011

This girl is drinking a flat white. Or at least shall be upon the completion of the upload of these few photos. True, my wardrobe is identical in each image so perhaps posting three is overdone, but sometimes choosing proves difficult for me. At least here with coffee there is no question of decision - where else can I order a flat white?

I have the day off in Sydney and would really appreciate it if the clouds and rain could move out of the way so I can tour around and play with my camera.

The crunch to prepare for my next international trip has come. My room looks like a tornado of clothes, pillows and papers. Constant motion makes efficiency and basic errands a difficult feat. Some day I may need to slow down, but I'm not ready yet.

I am going to hear Itzhak Perlman tonight. I guess I need to put on clothes.


Yes, there this more than country in Texas.

Of bird type things

The other day a feather fell out of my down jacket and an absurd idea popped into my head. I decided it would be neat to be tarred and feathered for a shoot. I happened to have my friend Art at my side and a couple of hours. After a trip to pick up some powdered eyeshadow to mix with my lotion and a few bags of feathers, we had a fun shoot in the making.

On the theme of feathers and the creatures they are usually attached to, a couple of days ago I ended up wandering through a gigantic Asian super market. Upon my first time to see a beverage named, "bird's nest drink," I snapped an iphone photo in disgust, and when I saw the beverage in the cooler section, I decided I needed to try this horrifying sounding beverage. A few sips into the drink I deemed it undrinkable. It may be a delicacy in some countries, but consuming a bird's nest is not my idea of fine dining.

Are you a "the glass is half full" or "the glass is half empty" kind of person?

I am a "I have a glass - how cool is that?!" kind of person.

Sometimes I don't want a full glass. My coffee cup is best served less than full. If it were brimming over with coffee, there would not be room to put in the cream of choice. If I am tasting alcoholic beverages and my drinks too full, I may hit my stopping point more rapidly than preferred. I like to try things, to take life as it is poured for me or pour it for myself. Half full or half empty. A few drops or an abundance. In this glass I have, I may drink and share life.

(I just re-read this and believe that perhaps I should rename my blog, “if art models were philosophers....”)

Back in Texas. I feel as though I never left.
Walking around in a lacy semblance of a shirt, with windows open, and breeze coming through, spring is here.

Australia again

Yup, still an art model.

I feel so fortunate to be heading back to Australia for part of March and April.

Lately I have been on a reading kick. I recently finished a book by Camus and stories by Martin Amis, and am finally introducing myself to Dostoevsky. I'm always interested in good book, movies and music recommendations - want to share?

Yes, sometimes I do bondage. That just requires trust. As it should.

Sometimes my version of bondage is a bit arty or nuanced. And sometimes there is no hiding the truth - a spreader bar is a spreader bar. But that does not mean the photos have to be anything less than beautiful.
