One girl, three faces




"Trust that little voice in your head that says: 'Wouldn't it be interesting if ...' And then do it. " Duane Michals, "More Joy of Photography"  
I just love these pictures my son Robin has taken from his girlfriend, lovely model and actress Julie Gaston.  They are both such talented artists and inventive people and can create something from almost nothing. And they keep inspiring me. Is there something, you have always wanted to try. but didn't get around doing yet?

  2. Now this is one very interesting post, liebe Martina. Wonderful words to start the weekend to. Weekend means a bit more spare time to think things over, I am including this great quote. Wie geht's dir? Es gibt hier viel Regen und kaltes Wetter. I wonder where Mrs. Summer went. Did she skip die Niederlande? Ich hoffe nicht, noch eine Woche und dann ist es schluss mit der Schule. SOMMER FERIEN sind da!
    Alles liebe, sweet vriendin ~o xx o~

  3. Great question!! I've been thinking about this a lot lately as I begin to look towards my children both being out of town at university/college and now having time on my hands again. There are so many things I'm planning...things I want to 'try' my hand at!

  5. Wow!!!! Gorgeous photos of a very lovely lady. You are surrounded by some amazing talent! How wonderful! Continue to enjoy all the inspiration. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! :)

    There are quite a few things I want to try still. The latest one is using a dremel wood tool to do a little wood carving...:) We have the dremel tool, I just need to dive in to experiment with it!

    Have a beautiful day, dear friend!

  16. The one thing that I"ve been meaning to sign up for are cake decorating classes--my daughter and I were going to do this in February and still haven't done it. It's been a dream since I was little and our neighbor made beautiful cakes. It will happen--in the fall perhaps when we don't mind being inside for classes.

    P.S. You're so lucky to have so many creative people in your family!

  19. Very intriguing! I love the quote because it is something an artist should live by. If I didn't act on half my "What if I's" I wouldn't have half of my designs!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  28. Good evening dear friend in Germany!!! Ahhhh...what a great afternoon we had. We had a real writer, an author from the local community over our house today that really listened, shared and encouraged us in the area of writing. It was magical. Now the weather is acting up here; high winds and clouds moving in and about are more September-like than June, but I JUST KNOW that summer is here and soon will bring more sunshine! Your visits are sweet and always give me a peek of sunlight...have a great evening dear Martina! Anita
