On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
This article is the 4th of a 12-part series: A Twelfth Night Love Story,
a voyeuristic journey of love & romance
Be sure to ENTER to win one of three fabulous prizes-
Sage hit the nail on the head with that David Bailey book last night! He's kind of my personal hero. His shots were actually what made me want to get into photography. I don't think anyone else ever captured the drama and glamour and tragedy of such incredible subjects the way he did. And the best part is, my incredible girlfriend had no idea I was into his work. It's crazy how well we can read each other... just like I could tell that when she gave me that book, she was also thinking about that London trip we've been talking about forever.
Well, we might have an opportunity to go sooner than she thinks. Backpacking through Europe with her would be a blast! But I'm getting ahead of myself ;)
As it so happens, I'm giving Sage a book tonight too. Opening Up: The Search for Intimate Love is half photography, half poetry, and altogether really stunning. The honesty and vulnerability reminded me of some of her paintings (the ones she claims aren't that good). Maybe it'll inspire her to paint more.
