i went home to houston....

and had myself a lil fashion shoot!

i actually went home over spring break to shoot my portrait project and what is becoming my thesis. i was working on a video documentary on new orleans debutantes but lo and behold, one william eggleston show at the whitney and i've realized that i want to photograph the south. i've actually know that i've wanted to do that for a while but it took seeing his (eggleston's) photographs to realize that is what i want to do. i am still working on my documentary but i dont really want my senior show to be that. i'll finish that for another class next semester i reckon.

This is so cool! The outfits are all really lovely. I would love to get my hands on a medium format camera. The results here are gorgeous, especially the 2nd picture.

Whoops, I meant 3rd picture, but I really like the 2nd, too.

thank you so much!
the 3rd one is my favorite too though the 2nd is cute. b/c of the tiger

Thanks for the tip on the Rachel Comey collection. I've liked her past collections, but for some reason hadn't looked at that one yet. It's really cool!
