The Friday Evening Nudes

The Nudes of Brassai
(click on the link for a short biography)

Brassai (link to works on Artlex) (pseudonym of Gyula Halász) (9 September 1899 – 8 July 1984) the Hungarian photographer, sculptor, and filmmaker who rose to fame in France.

I'm mad in love with this photographer; both nudes and night-time street scenes, which I hope to feature in a future post. But if I don't get around to it, check out his work on the net.

I keep telling myself that I couldn't possibly have walked by one of paintings in some museum and kept walking; yet I don't recall ever having seen one in person.

Happy Friday and a great weekend to you all.

Dogs of Lust - The The

I'm playing Kay's Seven Deadly Sins meme. The first of which is - Lust.

So because I'm a pathetically lazy blogger, my contribution is a song. Kinda lame, I know but put on your headphones and turn it up. You know you want to listen to it...

Ruby Tuesday

Buskers in front of Quincy Market Boston, Massachusetts

Who Are You?

I owe the following music choice to having recently seen Keith Moon's jacket at the Boston Hard Rock Cafe; among other things... ;-)

It's a terrible picture, and I suggest you leave it as is. I admit to having concentrated more on my daughter than on the picture taking. And then there was the annoying spot light I couldn't get away from.

I took daughter, 20 and her charming friend Camille out for lunch at The Hard Rock Cafe. I wouldn't have chosen it for myself, but I thought the girls would enjoy it.It's very entertaining to be out and about with two boy magnets. Regretfully I forgot to take a photo of the lovely Camille, whom I met for the first time this weekend.

There will be more pics on my Ruby Tuesday post, which I'll put here at The Pagan Sphinx, so please come to Boston (in the winter time...brrrrrrrrr)

Black Crow

I thought this video tribute to Joni Mitchell's composition Black Crow was particularly well done. But I would expect no less from someone whose youtube handle is hejira33312. ;-) Well done, Don. This is my all-time favorite song by Joni Mitchell.

And while I'm here, I'd also like to pass on this award given to me by my dear friend Betmo at Life's Journey, to Crow and Susan at Phantythat, to whom the song is dedicated.

Thanks, Bet. I'm looking forward to those pictures of your garden you've been promising us. That season can't come fast enough, huh? We're expecting a winter storm tonight. Alas, nothing can be done. We have to weather it out.

Emily Dickinson - The Belle of Amherst
"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
