oday Charlie spotted a big ole Tom cat that made him lose his mind. He stood on the deck and howled. Once Michael got home, Charlie started howling again wildly. We craned around the edge of the house to see this big, mooky tom lying gingerly in the yard taunting the dog. Touche cat, touche.
Summer Art Fridays: Photographer Cheyne Gallarde
With the help of his studio, Firebird Photography, Hawaii-based photographer Cheyne Gallarde creates poppy fashion shoots and elegantly retro photographs that bring to mind decades long past. That all-is-good vibe, plus the boundless sunshine of the photo above, is why we chose him for Summer Fridays this week.
Describe the piece you submitted to Summer Fridays.
This was a fashion editorial for the vintage boutique CLOTH, which carried unique re-thrifted vintage items. The store itself no longer exists, but the photo (which has appeared in several magazines since then) has become very iconic and synonymous with me.
For anyone who didn’t see it, let me tell you.
The Doctor’s a time traveler. He brought Vincent Van Gogh (who was severely depressed and lost hope in his ability and himself) to the future, to a museum where they are celebrating his art.
Being a writer, this scene moved me to tears. You’re your own worst critic… But imagine someone brought you to a world where people love and appreciate your art. Or it means something so special to them. The thought of it is overwhelming.
