Focus stacking an Angle Shades moth

Yesterday, I had a Muslin moth to photograph. Today, I had another go at focus stacking a macro shot, with an Angle Shades (Phlogophora meticulosa). Focus stacked moth, note how from nose to tail the image is largely in focus Focus stacking involves taking essentially the same photo several times but focusing first on the foreground, then the mid, then the farthest point on the subject. You can take as many shots as you like to “bracket” the image and get a sequence of shots that have the wh...

Edward Burne-Jones Art Book Review

Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones (1833 – 1898) was an English artist and designer closely associated with the later phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, who worked closely with renowned textile artist William Morris on a wide range of decorative arts. Readers who frequent my blog will know my absolute adoration for the work of John William Waterhouse, and by extension any work of the Pre-Raphaelites, so Burne-Jones’ paintings are definitely in my corner. On top of this, I’m also a big fan of Art...

Creative Flow: A Novelist’s Elegant Pied-a-Terre by Colombe Studio

When we stumbled upon Colombe Studio’s Instagram account, we discovered image after image that activated our endorphins. It was clear that we had to share founder Marta Chrapka’s sophisticated projects on our site. A couple months ago, we did just that—see A Glamorous Pre-War Flat in Poland, Courtesy of Colombe Design (and eBay)—and today, not content with just a one-off, we’re spotlighting another refreshingly grown-up home by the Warsaw-based designer. This one belongs to a couple (a writer of...

This ornate, romantic British editorial might put Briar Rose at the top of your fairytale bridal style icon list

This may come as a surprise, but some of the most unique event designs we’ve seen are inspired by iconic painters, from Frida Kahlo all the way back to 17th century Dutch masters. It’s pretty incredible how a single painting or series of paintings can inspire a modern day wedding. In this case, bridal fashion designerJoanne Fleming Design teamed up with Elizabeth’s Cakes Emporium to channel famed artist Edward Burne-Jones for an ornate, romantic, British editorial at Michelham Priory in East Su...

Fairy Tales for the Children of the Laborers

None As I was reading "A Fairy Tale for Tired Socialists" and other stories from Michael Rosen's thought-provoking anthology Workers' Tales: Socialist Fairy Tales, Fables, and Allegories from Great Britain, I kept reminding myself to think about the fairy tales I read as a child. The mermaid in Hans Christian Andersen 1836 The Little Mermaid, doesn't marry her prince in the original story but instead is turned into a daughter of the air (essentially sea foam) in what can be viewed as a heavy-ha...

Tacky -- What's in a Word?

  When corresponding recently with a friend regarding amaryllis, I mentioned that, growing up in Florida where a neighbor had a whole straggling hedge-like row of the big flowers, I had always thought of them as somewhat tacky and had only come to appreciate them after moving to a place where they couldn't thrive outside and weren't so . . . well, common. On the contrary, now I see amaryllis as the spectacular blooms they are. And that got me thinking about the word 'tacky.'  In my youth, it...

A Week in the Country?

Reading A Month in the Country and then watching the film a while back, and in particular the book jacket that could have been painted from our kitchen window, and then I mentioned that Bookhound and I wouldn't be travelling far this summer because we had projects nearer home, and it didn't go unnoticed by the observant audience that you are... Well, a month might be too long, but if you are planning A Week in the Country maybe think about coming to stay in Tinker's Cott this summer... Digging...

TV Reviews: “House of Cards” and “The Kominsky Method” on Netflix

The final season of “House of Cards” could be subtitled “The Ghost Of You.” Kevin Spacey was fired from the series after sexual assault allegations surfaced, but the character he plays (Frank Underwood) is still very much part of the show — even though the actor playing him is nowhere to be seen in the six episodes. Instead, the show focuses on Claire Underwood, Frank’s wife, who became president toward the end of season five after Frank resigned in the wake of impending impeachment hearings. F...

Wonder Ventures aims to dazzle L.A. startups with its new seed-stage fund

Dustin Rosen thinks L.A. has a problem, aside from its famously car-choked highways. There aren’t enough investors willing to write small checks. Why not? The way he sees it, most of the so-called micro venture funds have grown their funds to the size of traditional venture firms, and are making bigger bets as a result. Meanwhile, some of the angel investors that Venice-based Snap was expected to produce have not materialized, owing to the company’s disappointing performance on the public market...

Peaceful reading :: A Time to Keep Silence ~ Patrick Leigh Fermor

We are now in recovery from the excitement of a couple of Ikea runs, choosing the sofa, having it delivered in sixteen boxes two days later when we thought it would take weeks, spending an entire Sunday building it, having three washers left over and not getting divorced, and now sitting (or rather reclining) on it. We bought a 'Gronlid' combination in the end with the chaise option at one end, say no more, I adore it, bring on winter, I'll cope. And I have a little pile of peaceful, mindful re...

Wave Hill

Tucked just off the beaten path in the Bronx, are the public gardens known as Wave Hill. We took a little day trip up (it's really only about 15 away minutes by car) a week ago and had a really great time. Wave Hill reminds me so much of the Huntington Library in Pasadena, CA, just on a much smaller scale. It overlooks the Hudson River and that's NJ in the background.  We got there right when it opened and the crowds were relatively small.  Kate brought her friend, Felicity and here they are wit...

Tools & Craft #107: In Furniture Design, What's Old is New Again

This summer I'd gone to the Museum of the City of New York, to see the absolutely fabulous Stanley Kubrick exhibit. At the same time I stopped in at a small exhibit of the design work of the architect Rosario Candela. Candela's name is still dropped in New York real estate circles; he is the architect behind some of Manhattan's oldest luxury apartment buildings.The show included a settee c. 1926 that really caught my eye. It was made by a Queens-based company called "Company of Master Craftsman"...

Artist revamps dingy interior of a 1962 Airstream with vibrant florals

While most Airstream renovations tend to go for a minimalist aesthetic to create the illusion of more space, surface pattern designer Bonnie Christine used her love of florals to convert her 1962 Airstream trailer into a gorgeous home on wheels. To transform the formerly drab interior, Bonnie lined various accent walls in wallpaper with a forest green background and light pink flowers to add a fresh and vibrant flair to the incredibly compact 150-square-foot tiny home. Bonnie and her husband b...

An Address in Bloomsbury ~ Alec Forshaw

On that recent trip to London, and wandering through Bloomsbury to lunch and revisit The Lost Words exhibition, I walked along Great Ormond Street with Adele Geras and Helen Rappaport and took them into the children's hospital to see the chapel.  I'm afraid it's exquisite beauty and peace passed me by as a young student nurse taking children to services on a Sunday afternoon.   It seemed over-the-top and garish to me in the 1970s, but I go in every time I am passing now and it never cease...
