Aaaaaa…This is my kind of shoot. I want to live in it. I linger over each image and fight the compulsion to slip out of my shoes and clothes, tuck feathers into my hair and streak through the wind toward open plains and endless sky; scour cliffs and valleys, bath in the sea, and slumber amidst tall grass. Thank you to these artists who create journeys for my heart.

This is the other old favorite that I referenced this morning. I think that for several years it’s been shoots like these, and my need for other people to see them/experience their power, that has nagged at the corners of my mind; sewing the seeds of a blog. I can remember so clearly how the pages of my Vogue wafted open to reveal the rich jewel tone of this editorial. As if biting into an exquisite truffle, I forced myself to turn each image slowly, savoring the magical mood of a distant and exotic desert oasis; in awe of the flawless enchantress, worshiped by bronzed, gleaming Adonises. Before my heart came to adore fashion, it loved fairytale… Well, this spread marked a significant marriage of the two for me.
