Kurotomesode Kimono. Mid-to
late Meiji Period (1880-1911), Japan. The Kimono Gallery. A formal chirimen
silk kimono featuring snow-covered pine and flying crane motifs. Five mon
(family crests). The cranes on the upper front are fully embroidered; while the
pines, boats and river were created utilizing the yuzen technique, with
additional silk and metallic embroidery. The snow on top of the pines are
wonderfully created utilizing white silk embroidered threads.
i have teared up over the beauty i find in snow-covered pine trees. there is something so deeply wonderful to me when i wake up at home, sleepily wander to the kitchen, and find the people i love who’ve just woken up are having coffee, too (weird, i know). i really like watching golf tournaments. i am hesitant to bring my camera out in front of others because i don’t want to make them uncomfortable/feel like they can’t be themselves. i would be perfectly content to live off of bread, wine, cheese, strawberries, peaches, and coffee for the rest of my life. there is nothing like having my entire family (and my brothers’ girlfriends) under one roof… i also love bringing people in to my family. i’m really stoked for the day i find someone who’s okay with me photographing them… a lot. i fall asleep to classical music every night. i really, really, really love seeing or hearing men pray. i have a deal going on with my dad that if i run a half-marathon, he has to start taking guitar lessons again (both are things we love that we don’t make time for). a huge part of me wants to get married and have kids, but there’s also a big part of me that wants to adopt a dog, buy a wrangler, and live a solo life - let’s see if i can somehow combine the two. sometimes i get so excited for coffee the next morning that it’s hard for me to fall asleep at night.
