Ah!!! You didn't warn me! I was like, "She's amazing!" And then nakey/sex shot happened and my virgin eyes were like "Waah!"

Do you like my play by play? Do you? Do you?

I lOVE these!!!! I just saw a documentary about New York street photographers called Everybody Street at Toronto's Hot Docs festival. She was one of the profiled artists and she was there at the Q&A after the film. She is a feisty one! I think she was in the audience right behind me coughing a really gross phlegmy cough and I had been so tempted to turn around and throw a lozenge at her. So glad I didn't!

You know I love retro photographs and her work has always caught my eye. I love that the focus here is on the nature of dogs- how the look, how they act, what they will and will not do... right down to the dirty part. ;) I laughed so hard when I saw that was the last one you put up... Leaves a lasting impression!

Much Love,
