Bhutis Blogwichteln!

Posted by Anne on November 10th, 2009

Freu, Freu! Frau Bhuti is hosting this year’s Secret Santa blogs. Blogwichteln is guest-blogging on someone else’s blog secretly and them never figuring out who you are! So much fun.

Phillip Toledano: Days with my father

Posted by Anne on November 25th, 2008

Beautiful, touching photos and text. Also see Phillip Toledano’s website. This makes me think of my father. And my mother. Would be great to portray her. I still have my dad’s old Voigtländer. Lots of guesswork, but it gets beautiful results.  I’ve shied away from digital cameras because of the wait between click and snap. OK, […]
