supernatural out of context

50 years ago today (January 28th, 1967)

Marianne Faithfull and Mick Jagger in Sanremo, Italy where Marianne was participating in the eponymous song contest/music festival. It was here that their relationship became serious and known to the press. In addition to the “official” portraits taken by Dezo Hoffmann the couple was followed by paparazzi everywhere resulting in candid photos like the one above.

My PWS-Valentine’s photo actually goes out to two special photographers, whom I have been following for the last three years. To those whose photos I have studied to try and help better understand perspective and composition, and through whom I have learned much about editing. To those whom during my rather long hiatus I’ve often wondered how they’ve been doing, and wished that I had checked in to tumblr more often to see. These photographers are of course Pete (http://tvoom.tumblr.com) and Stephi (http://stephiramona.tumblr.com). Without these two, I doubt I would have ever gotten to the level I’m at now, and I still have much to learn from them both.

Which much love and respect, 

Connor A Watt

Additional: Photo was taken during my first professional, meaning in studio, photo shoot with Featurette a couple of weeks ago.

Thank you for your Valentine’s submission!

Even More Striped Scuba Dress

I love this dress so much I wanted to include some additional photos, Hope everyone isn’t sick of seeing them yet. I originally paired it with my new “booties” but that didn’t seem quite right so I dug out my slingbacks, I tell you they have been a great investment!

What I am having difficulties with is hosiery, I can’t seem to find a brand/color I am happy with. Please comment if you have a favorite brand and color.

If you obsessively read ingredients lists, you might recognize some of these words. Ingredients, a new book by photographer Dwight Eschliman and writer Steve Ettlinger, seeks to demystify 75 common food additives, from acesulfame potassium to xanthan gum, by providing an easy-to-read encyclopedia of sorts on various food additives, their uses, and their history. 

Learn and see more of what makes up your favorite foods here.
