Road Trip

Watched Easy Rider last night.  Obsessed with the necklace Dennis Hopper
wears in the film; going to string one up for myself.  And it's no surprise that
I love the scenes of them wandering through the riotous French Quarter on
Mardi Gras day.
R.I.P. Dennis.

Hot Philly Boys

Windows rolled down, volume up high, wind in your hair, and a fresh coat of lipgloss.

Play this song when you're driving from party to party looking for your summer crush.
We guarantee you'll find him.

Lost in Repose

Love these images of girls lost in thought.

Glitter Glam

Oh, Marc Bolan, with your spangled eye shadow 
and feathery lyrics, is there anyone that I love more 
than you?  Nah....I could dance on tables to your songs
for eternity.

One of my favorite events in the city is the annual
Odunde festival.  This year I headed there with my
friend, Emily Wren, who captured it all on black
and white film.  The festival honors Oshun, the
Yoruba goddess of the river.

We joined the procession of people snaking through
the streets to the Schuylkill River, then drizzled honey
into the water, tossed in oranges as offerings, and sent
rose petals drifting down the shore. A sudden torrential
downpour gave us a bit of respite from the sweltering heat.
