Black & Light

Sasha Pivovarova expertly styled by Mika Mizutani and photographed by Hedi Slimane for Vogue Japan, August 2011. I love the way the light shines on that massive bracelet, and the light through sheer black in the photo below.

More from the same story here.

Image of the Day

The artist died today at the age of 83. Read more about Twombly's life and career here,

Need vs. Want

A red suit. I am a bigger dude (let's call it "husky"), so it wouldn't look like this – Lanvin, Spring 2012 – but I think I could rock it in the right time and place. Need.

Riding for the Feeling

A couple pics from our weekend crabbing/boating excursion...

Emily reading Timothy Egan's op-ed to our friend Josh.

Bald Eagle guarding the Hat Island Marina.

Emily's traditional boat food, Chicken in a Biskit (sung to the tune of "This Is How We Do It").

First pull of the day... a couple keepers

We pulled this crab pot up to find a giant starfish hogging the bait. (We threw it back.)

Later on Emily and I motored a couple hours up to Coupeville.

We stayed overnight in the boat, docked up to the wharf.

Low tide the next morning

Delicious breakfast at the Knead & Feed, just down the street from the wharf.

"So... the blue parts must be land"

In short, one of the best weekends in recent memory and we can't wait to get out there again.
