Ten Days #5

Setting up camp in the middle of nowhere at 2am in total darkness made for a tired and grumpy Green of Eye. It was worth it, as i discovered upon waking the next morning to blue skies and epic views like the one above.

For many years I swore blind that I'd never entertain the idea of marriage.
 PMV strolled into my life with his boundless compassion, kindness, intelligence, generosity, humour, positivity, creativity and love. Needless to say I've since reevaluated my opinion on the subject and I'm incredibly grateful to have this amazing gent in my life. 

A much needed weekend away with good food, 12 year old Jameson, a roaring fire, hot tub and falling asleep to the noise of the Pacific crashing against the cliffs beneath our cottage

You know how every day should start? 
Naked hot tubbing, peach juice, huge breakfast. Not necessarily in that order.

A tattered crackle manicure clutching a seemingly Roman Dirge inspired icecream

Only in Canada: flipflops on snow in May!

Some of the coolest gates i've ever seen which were made by Foggy Mountain Forge.
The pillars of the gates were flanked by dragons and the pièce de résistance? An enormous spider centrepiece.

New shoes inspired by listening to lots of Kate Bush

"It's the red shoes, they can't stop dancing, dancing
And this curve, is your smile
And this cross, is your heart
And this line, is your path"

All I Want For Christmas...

Ah Craigslist, a source of all things weird, wonderful and at times, illegal. If you have the room to accommodate a half ton wine rack, a spare $7,000 and the ability to transport it from its Phoenix, AZ location you can't go wrong with this masterpiece. Used transmission parts from auto mobiles and motorcycles were welded together to create a 6 foot high robot/transformer style sculpture which doubles as a wine rack.

The parts were dipped into a solution to neutralize and remove any oil, grime, or corrosive chemicals. The piece was painted gun metal grey and clear coated. It has blue LED lights that have been wired into the body along the leg, torso and the top of the shoulder. 


This would make a great addition to my living room...whilst scaring the snot out of any animals/children that venture past my front door!

Me Wearing a Wig & Lipstick 

"I think the best pictures are often on the edges of any situation, I don't find photographing the situation nearly as interesting as photographing the edges. "

William Albert Allard, The Photographic Essay

Kim Hoxworth is a Michigan based photographer who uses mainly low-tech equipment such as homemade and vintage cameras. Kim's interest and exploration in photography began when she was given a used 35mm SLR as a Christmas present by her parents when she was sixteen.


Her sepia and black/white toned work has a richness and sheds a different light on everyday settings and objects. She states "I experiment with a variety of alternative processing and/or printing techniques. I get an incredible amount of satisfaction from producing an image with my own two hands, never sure what the final result is going to be. There is something very liberating for me in allowing the medium to direct the final outcome."
