Shades of grey...



Just as I thought spring had sprung...along came the snow, and in ernest too! At the weekend we had eight inches fall in Glasgow, and more is on it's way tonight apparently. It is so beautiful, all pale and silvery against the red sandstone buildings...it is not really dark at night, the sky is glowing a sort of pale grey..I could watch it forever.

Photogram, 2000, Pleats (by me)

After posting the image of the Lace Dress by Jurgi Peterson in my last entry, a little conversation erupted between myself and Lisa when we both agreed the image reminded us of a photogram. Lisa told me about the artist/photographer Adam Fuss, and I just love his work!! Here are two of my favourite images of his (and the ones that relate well to the lace dress image too...) This image and this one are both from his series entitled 'My ghost', and I just love the negative, x-rayed quality of his photograms.

On another joyous note...I was delighted to find out Georgia from 'Muse to Muse' has chosen me as her muse for the day!! See the post here...I was so surprised and honoured to be written about, and to read all the kind, lovely comments Georgia wrote! Thank you so...:)

It's shaping up to be a busy week already....let it be a good one! xox

I just saw that snowy photo at flickr and had to come visit you here to see what is was about...crazy! Enjoy it-it really does look nice. Congrats on being the "muse" although I am sure you are one more often than you think-I know that you inspire me, too!
