Last week I scored a basketful of vintage maps.
I noticed them sitting on the “free table” in the main entrance of the building where I temp at the university. I was glowing the rest of the afternoon, which is sort of lame. I don’t care. I also dig the wicker pail they came rolled up in.
I’m seeing some fun cartography projects in the near future.
Today, while I’ve been sorting through my new maps, clearing out some clutter & even clipping a couple inspirations from a magazine, Eisley has been my constant shadow.
We are listening to thunder storms in the distance , which stress & freak Eisley out. She actually jumped in the tub while I was showering today to avoid being even more than a couple feet from me lest the thunder get her. The pup hates getting wet — usually requiring a little coaxing to get in the bath — but apparently she hates that thunder more.
I sort of want to participate in Ali Edward’s A Week in the Life, so I’m trying to take simple everyday photos, representing exactly what is going on in our lives each day this week — “from the mundane to the profound”. Though I’m not sure I’ll make a paper album, I’m excited to see if I can pull the images together by other means using text & digital composition…then posting here.
Anyone else want to play?
I’ll post today, tomorrow morning; Tuesday, Wednesday morning; & so on.
p.s. Did you check out the auction?
