Milk, Nuts and Things
Walking home the other night from the soup kitchen I work at, I saw these prints in the window. sorry the photos are so crazy. It was dark and I had to use a flash. I was struck by these colours of oversize botanicals on black. I thought they looked really cool and I thought Dollface might be inspired by this display. I couldn't tell how they were made, printed or silk screened. But I thought she would like the ginormous scale and colour contrast.
I also took a couple of photos of some of the folks I work with, at a church serving about 130 (sometimes more) per night a good hot meal. Some of the people working in this place have a work live situation. They applied from other countries to come here and work at this church and they have room and a shared kitchen and common room for tv upstairs. The general impression I've gotten is it's a really cool program, the participants go through a lot of paperwork and promise to work for a year. I will post more photos next time I am able to. Don't these folks look FUN! We have a great time, and a lot of the food is donated by Whole Foods. Another reason to love Whole Foods!
