She Walks the Line..., March 2007

Twin Lakes Beach



She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land,
Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus.

News Time!

Woohoo...We are up to over 40K views on pictures at Flickr. That means 5k since my March 11 post about views! I could get 1,000 this week and that would be double the month before. That's freaking crazy. YAY! Okay, it helps that at one point this week I had 3 socks pictures in explore. I love my socks. If I didn't love them so much, it would be a little creepy, but they are just so...FUN! I'm also *really* proud of some of the corset shots and know I am going to have to play more with perspective stuff and put the gorilla pod on my head w/ the timer more. That was neat. I'm excited. I know I should be painting more too, but I just can't stop wanting to take pictures. In fact...if you add it up that is 10k views since the middle of January, and I only had 30 in the 13 months before. Yay. I'm such a whore.

Hooked & Tied

I went shopping today and bought 2 GORGEOUS new corsets I have been lusting after for a while!


Just showing off:



Jacoby: I'm gonna teach you the meaning of pain.
Elizabeth: You like pain? Try wearing a corset.

See a couple more here.

My Private Paradise, Tea House March 2007

At least once a week, you can find me soaking in this water and staring at this view or hiding in the unseen wooden sauna in the back. This is my paradise for $12 or $15 an hour. It is worth every cent every time. It is my sanity.



I left my <3 in San Francisco, August 2006

Seacliff, CA, April 2004

This is still one of my favorite sunsets ever.
This place will always be MY place.
Just try and drive me down the 101 without stopping here.

I saw her today!

BM05 067

She lives at the Felix Kulpa Art Gallery right across from the Tea House Spa. I think about this sculpture a lot, she was certainly a fave, so to find her today, staring back at me as I exited my own private paradise was a delight. I see other things there I recognize from that year at BRC, but was too tired and relaxed and just wanted to be home and sitting. But alas, I think I will go back this weekend and see if I can take new pictures of her in her new home.
