Inspiring Asia

October 6th 2012

This week I listened and saw 3 interesting and fresh things from Asia that were new to me.

Vogue’s Chinese Editor Angelica Cheung’s video for NOWNESS is a refreshingly modern view on fashion,  it was great to hear her comment on being a working mother and how she has reflected upon this with her work at Vogue …”that since the birth of her daughter her veiw on the modern woman had changed and if she wanted her daughter to become a certain kind of woman that she aspired to then she needed to make sure her readers could become that kind of woman” .

Korea Vogue asked fashion photographer Kim Kyoung Soo to realise a series of fashion portraits based on the  traditionnal Korean costume, Hanbok. These beautiful photos capture a stillness that is so tranquil, I love the colour palettes against the neutral back ground. Images can be seen at  Gallery Paris Beijing


And lastly the number one hit of Korean pop singer PSY, a nice note to go out on on a Friday, I LOVE IT !

I set myself a little project whilst on holiday in Greece to see how many things I could take pictures of that weren’t of the blue sea, white sand, white washed houses, blue doors, painted furniture etc… i.e. that weren’t the typical post card images of Greece. I have to say I didn’t get that far with it as the sea and white washed houses are so tempting to snap at….. but I’m glad I did take a few as its really refreshing to look at them now I am back at home and I realise I have 100’s of the same looking white houses and same blue sea!!! Here are a few that I thought fit the colours predicted for Spring Summer 13.

After The Storm…

May 18th 2012

The sea seems to be having fun with all this stormy weather.

I found some great pieces along the beach, it  somehow reminded me of Buddhist prayer flags , not sure why maybe the erosion and washed out look of  the material and the way they are draped?

Beautiful and still now but the sea must have thrown them out with some force!

Thought you might like to see these photos they are taken along the South Coast, where sometimes I get the chance to walk my dogs.
