Photoset

Two photos from my “fashion” folder downloaded to my old ThinkPad in January of 2005 (fall line). Fendi on left and Marni on right. Very different lines, but both would still be wearable today.

I’ve sewn and re-purposed clothes since junior high. At one point I was going to be a fashion designer… like a zillion other dreamers :) I still sew. I still recycle. I still mend.

Composition VII (1913) by Wassily Kandinsky
If you haven’t stood in front of a Kandinsky and had to refrain yourself from licking the canvas you still have time while there is breath in your body!  The Lenbachhaus Kunstbau/Museum in Munich is a good place to start. 
Downloaded between 1st and 2nd trip to Germany of 3.

Embrace (1939) by Paul Klee
Backtracking - pictures that I missed - out of chronological order of original download - but who cares, other than my memory.  Love this one.  Downloaded under the influence of Edvard Munch’s The Kiss/Kyss and Klimt’s Kiss… but this is my favorite.

Cologne Cathedral (1945) by Lee Miller
While in Koln, I climbed up the spires of this Cathedral about 60 years after this picture was taken.  When you look up, while down below - do you see the forest canopy above?

Frederic Chopin (1838) by Eugene Delacroix
One of my favorite composers - if not my favorite.  His relationship with George Sand also fascinates me.  Do writers and musicians mix?

Mata Hari - 1906 postcard
This is the REAL Mata Hari, Margaretha Geertruida “Grietje” Zelle MacLeod, who was executed by firing squad for being a WWI spy… though she probably wasn’t a spy. 
This is not Theda Bara playing Mata Hari.  This IS Mata Hari.  May she be an inspiration to us all: Leave abusive situations.  Dance.  Live a life of Intrigue.  No Regrets.
