iris, oh FABULOUS iris. she’s iconic in her huge round glasses and bright colors, but i didn’t know much about her before watching the documentary: iris. i love that she and her husband carl started old world weavers after she couldn’t find the textile she wanted for a client. why not just make it? from there, the company only grew. as far as her personal style goes, watching her put together pieces is pure magic. why? authenticity. she buys and wears only what she loves. it’s as simple as that.
VSCO creates these ethereal, dreamy filters for lightroom, aperture and iphone. i am only just starting to explore the app and if i ever go back to taking photographs with a big camera, i would love to dive into the film profiles. scroll their website and blog for lots of inspiration and tutorials from various well known photographers. a few of my favorite images below. enjoy.

AMO introduced me to this lovely hilltop park in the castro a while ago. there’s a sneaky pathway between two hillside houses on 19th street, so sneaky that you might not know that it leads to anything in particular (part of why i love it so much). i’m usually more than winded after all those f*&#*ing SF hills, looking at my feet with my hands on my hips, telling my legs to climb just a little farther. but when the path opens up into a wild green patch tucked into city blocks with views of twin peaks in one direction, market street, downtown and the bay in the other, it’s so worth the short climb.
AMO started a new blog a while back and it continues to inspire me: read along at kitchen ammunition.
images from her post on foraged blackberry crisp. YUM.
listening to jazz radio on spotify and this old blue note cover caught my eye. love the simplicity of the typeface and the bold colors.
