good morning. as you can see from my favorites this week, i’m thinking about candid photos of people. i am bad at doing this (and my friends seem to have a hard time acting casually when i whip out my camera!) how do you get natural, candid photos of people? i’d like to get better.

also, lena tagged me on her blog to answer some questions, so i thought it’d be fun to play along.
What is your current obsession?
anson mills heirloom grits

Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately?
in reality, i guess it is dress pants (boring). but i can’t get enough of those cotton-cashmere sweaters from j.crew. they are so soft.

What’s for dinner?
cheeses, drinks and something delicious at the jake walk

What was the last thing you bought?
“ghost houses” and “abandoned wooden and beautiful” by the very talented nigel peake

What are you listening to right now?
morning edition on NPR

Say something to the person who tagged you:
hi lena – i’m looking forward to the next lines & shapes!

Favorite vacation spot?
anywhere near the ocean, but specifically, meegan’s house in st. barth

What are you reading right now?
a homemade life by molly wizenberg

What four words would you use to describe yourself?

What is your current guilty pleasure?
pappy van winkle 12-year bourbon

What will be the first spring thing you do?
put on a pair of flip flops and fire up the grill on my roof

Where are you planning to travel next?
austin, texas (yeehaw)

what was the last thing you watched?
30 rock
And these are the rules (which i have largely ignored – oops): respond and rework – answer the questions on your own blog; replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention; add one more question of your own. Tag eight other un-tagged people.

i tag:
(feel free to ignore the tag if you would rather not play along)

i hope your weekend is full of good stuff!

    Good to learn a little bit more about you.
    I must tell James about that bourbon…sounds right for him.

    Happy Weekend!

    I also have a hard time taking candid shots, but I love other people’s. It just feels so… awkward. And sneaky!
