Mary Jo Hoffmanis is a former aerospace engineer who began photographing natural objects found around her home in Minnesota. She gathers these lovely artifacts (often with help from her family), creates thoughtful arrangements, and scrappily photographs them in her home. Each day, she shares a piece of her beautiful work on her blog, Still.
I sent my first image out into the universe on January 1, 2012 hoping that I would enjoy the discipline of producing a photo a day, and hoping that a few kindred wanderers might find their way here. Still blog is a place to stop. A place to look at one thing at a time. A place to be still.
I bought myself a new (well, new to me) car yesterday. Now, this is a truly unusual event, as I’ve had my current car for nearly 15 years and love it dearly. But I finally decided that I simply can’t take another Minnesota winter without four wheel drive. And so I reluctantly made the leap to something practical – yet cute – that also comes with the highly anticipated luxury of heated seats. I Think I’m In Love by Beck from the album The Information, 2006.
There’s a lot of change going on in this life I’m living, most of which I’m not terribly thrilled about. And a big part of it begins next Monday. So, today’s track is an attempt to spin my thinking towards the positive. Brand New Day by The Staple Singers from The Very Best Of The Staple Singers, 2007 (track originally recorded in 1970).
