239/365: rien de rien

Well, shoot. Call it a testament to the craziness of our early back-to-school transition. Or something…

I missed another one.

In case you didn’t catch it, the title of today’s non-existent photo is an Edith Piaf reference. It’s part of a lyric from the song “Je Ne Regrette Rien” (I regret nothing). (Click the title to listen on Spotify. It’s a gorgeous song.)

While I’m not about to ‘start again from zero’ as the song goes, I do intend to carry on the 365 364 363 project. 

08.04.13 (im)perfection

As a rather discouraged perfectionist, I often delight in the bit of mayhem, disarray, erosion, and decay that marks accidents, nature, life, antiques, people, art.

There is so much order and artistry in this piece: the measured ribbing, the graceful strokes of calligraphy and the vibrant,  expressive figure of the crab.

And, then, there is a hole. In the umbrella. Allowing just a little bit of water or sunlight – exposure – to filter in. That’s what makes it interesting.
