vivian maier...


finally!! the documentary film about recently discovered street photographer cum nanny, vivian maier, will open in paris next week. can hardly wait to see it.

recognition... the photographic work of vivian maier is finally being seen by a wider audience.

about four and a half years ago i stumbled across the photography of vivian maier and since then i've regularly viewed the blog dedicated to her work. i was so impressed by the blogger's serendipitous story of discovery of maier's work and the beauty of her photographs that i immediately added the site to orient view's list of friends. 

this is an amazing story of discovery and the subsequent journey of the 'finder', john maloof, to make sure an unknown photographer gets 'her due'. happy to see such an international interest in maier and her work.

le meteo...


yes in paris, as anywhere else, people talk about the weather to pass the time and recently it has provided quite the conversation. for the past couple of nights, 'round midnight' was comprised of a lot of lightning with small rumblings of thunder and a huge deluge of rain. sunday's nature show was accompanied in some areas by tennis ball size hail. viva le meteo!

a no-no...


saw this guy spray painting a bicycle frame the other day. thought you weren't supposed to smoke and spray an aerosol container at the same time. didn't see him go up in flames so suppose it was all right. however, you wouldn't catch me doing the two together at the same time.
