I’m photographing Phantogram today. I want to ask Sarah if she’ll flick her hair at camera

My photo partner Bill text this morning and said he wasn’t feeling well and if I could cover Phantogram today at JBTV.

I didn’t quickly say yes. We’ve been absolutely slammed. But I made a promise to myself that if Bill can’t shoot, I’m going to shoot every band possible.

But Bill called. And I had to say yes.

More to come!

Zoe got a new West Elm sofa bed …


For all of you who want to come stay with us, thank Tina and your lucky stars, we bought a sofa bed.

For all of you who have stayed with us in the past and endured a couple nights on a blow up mattress, go ahead and schedule your next trip. We think you’ll like this better.

Mind you. It’s a sofa bed, and they aren’t a “real bed.” But the mattress on this sucker is kinda thick. And it doesn’t roll into the middle like other sofa pullouts.

You’ll still have to deal with my main work computer, but I think you’ll find it much more comfortable. We went with the chevron, because, well, we could get away with it … being artsy and all.

Now we need to figure out a way to paint these walls the right color. We’re thinking a hague blue.

What do you think?

Katerina Plotnikova poses beautiful women with hand-kissing bears! … and they live to tell about it


I love this work from Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova.

The great thing is, all the images are real. The animals are trained. About the fox above, she says:

The fox, for example, is a real domesticated animal. His name is Adyssey. He has a bit difficult temper, but he is very loved by his owner. All the animals that are in my photo shoots are treated really well. Sometimes, I even think that their owners treat them better than their own kids!

See more images here, like the one I referenced in the title!
