your thoughts

i am fascinated by the way an image can affect our emotions. how our brain must continually make sense of everything we see...find some sort of pattern or repetition in an image (subconsciously or not.) when i see an image i always attempt to formulate some sort of story to explain it. let me know (oh you who maybepossibly read this) what emotions one or more of these images below provoke. what sort of story might lie behind them and give them purpose. or whether you see any purpose at all in them. obviously, the photographers and artists already have stories and meanings for them all, but i want to see what you come up with. at least how that particular image affects your emotions.
i would like to know what you think.

what shall we say then? is there injustice on God's part? by no means! for He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." so then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. --romans9:14-16


this very well might be my favourite colour palette yet. sosoo good.


{RIP} domino mag

domino magazine was a gem. unfortunately i discovered it only a few months before it went out of print. luckily, someone was smart enough to save some of the beloved images, and uploaded them to flickr! [http://www.flickr.com/photos/8230585@N06/with/3281452913/]
here are a few of the rooms...

PS. domino had a major hand in influencing me towards interior design. beautifulstuff.
a black bathroom. (and a beautiful one) something you're ONLY supposed to do when ample sunlight is available. unless, of course, you like pretending that you live in a cave.then it's ok.
would love to sit and read in that very spot...plus, animalskin rugs are the best.
colourrr. and art collage. love it all.
love the print on the chair.
too bad the fireplace isn't made much of in this one. apparently they'd rather ignore it. the space planning and scaling need some help, but it's still pretty.
wallpaper is totally back.
love this one.
i love a good white bedroom. so fresh.
