rowena dugdale mail

the other day i received a really sweet email from a reader. name: rowena dugdale. pinhole polaroid photographer.
while she was at it, she sent me a link to her work. not unheard of. the compliment-bait, the link...and so on. i'm always a sucker. and honestly, it's like manna from heaven most of the time. there are some serious bad-ass artists out there, and i love hearing from them. this would be one of those times. first of all, how can you NOT love that name. so utterly british it tickles my toes. secondly, her work is so, so lovely.
and get this, i tell her how much i admire her work, and just like that *snap* she sends me one of her pieces.
"i create photographic prints using pinhole camera, polaroid, photogram and traditional darkroom techniques."
if you like photography, she has some really unique and ethereal pieces available. definitely worth a stop in. and for more info about the polaroid pinhole technique, click *here* so on this gray rainy, london like day, i was thrilled to go to my mailbox and receive this beautiful piece of art work. it's going right next to my desk. where all the magic happens.

I have a totally unrelated question to ask - did weego home go out of business? Please don't say yes!

Ha! "compliment bait" with a link... that is the only reason anyone reads my blog... because I loved yours and emailed you and was shameless enough to ask you to read mine and link to it.

You're my hero. And apparently the hero of many others, too.

i'm like the blog version of the drunk girl at the compliments bar. the easy pick up. tell me how beautiful i am and i'm putty.

no, no. that's not true at all. but it's a funny visual.

I don't know why, but I just do not ever get random requests for plugs followed by a lovely gift. How DO you DO it? I know...by being one of the hottest blogs around. Jealous.

katie, no idea man. i feel SO lucky! i'm getting all kinds of swag because of the blog. it sort of doesn't suck that much.
