Another colour I'm really loving at the moment is lilac. I've got such strong emotions attached to this beautiful flower: it reminds me of childhood, spring, my mom, on such a deeply primitive level. I love flowers that are clusters of smaller flowers, like lilacs, lily of the valley, grape hyacinths, and of course, hydrangeas. I love blue flowers.
I think of lilac as a pinker shade than, say, lavender (another scent I adore), which feels more blue to me. Anyway, this model's scarf feels lilac. It's a sorbet colour in a sense, but you can't eat lilac sorbet, can you? Actually.. what about those wonderful old fashioned, square, chalk like candies? Do they still sell those? Does anyone know what I"m even talking about?
Some shows at London Fashion Week meant the models had to really scramble to get their make-up off. I met this lovely girl in the ladies' loo after a show, and while I got some proper shots of her, I found the top one - when one of the staff accidentally passed by - made a more interesting composition. Maybe that means I'm coming out of my portrait phase.. altho I'm sure it will be back. It feels like a lot of our friends are away right now and whatever holiday you celebrate, hope it's Happy, wherever you are. And of course, let's not forget: Happy April Fish Day!
