MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JULY 8–14, 2019!

A very Harry Potter shoot at work, escape rooms and RENT in the evenings, a off-Friday bike ride, a wedding, and a summer outdoor movie night.

Enjoy!

Gordon Parks: The Flavio Story on view until November 10 at the Getty Center. I went to see the show because I tend to never get up to the galleries if I don’t go right when it opens.

“While on assignment to document poverty in Brazil for Life magazine, African American photographer Gordon Parks encountered one of the most important subjects of his career: Flávio da Silva. Parks featured the resourceful, ailing boy, who lived with his family in one of Rio’s working-class neighborhoods known as favelas, in his 1961 photo essay “Freedom’s Fearful Foe: Poverty.” His reportage resulted in donations from Life readers but also sparked controversy, particularly in Brazil, where the popular picture magazine O Cruzeiro issued a scathing condemnation of Life’s coverage.

This exhibition explores the celebrated photo essay, tracing the extraordinary chain of events it triggered and Parks’s representation of Flávio over several decades.”

Super interesting exhibition that follows Flavio over time, but also talks about Brazilian coverage of New York poverty.

Trimming two slightly crooked pots. Decided to make one into a plant pot that I saw at a store once.

Home for a baked rosemary chicken wing dinner with new pieces, I’ll take photos in the morn.

Shooting Larisa discussing the beasts in Harry Potter and their medieval sources. If you want to watch the final video and appreciate my sad editing skills but good intent, here it is!

Untitled
Selina gifted me an incredible Dobby hat which I proudly wore around the office

Untitled
Untitled
Thought I’d reuse the bunting since I made it. Now my desk is truly a disaster and more representative of the chaos of my brain.

Untitled
Untitled
James, Dan, Kiki, Ders, Zach and I gathered to escape “Lab Rat” by Hatch Escapes. You are a test human in a cage where rats are the ones conducting the experiments. We successfully got out!

Untitled
The next night with my parents we saw RENT at the Pantages. Had a big RENT year after seeing the movie and watching RENT Live! and so it was great to see a real actual live show. And it was great! Angel was incredible.

Untitled

Dropped my parents off then stopped at a taco truck because it was necessary for a taco snack.

Met up with James and Dan for a bike trail morning.

I miss living near this bike trail, so it was nice to ride it again.

We rented the metro bikes which are a great deal, but they are extremely heavy we had some near injury moments

We biked over to Marina Del Rey’s Fisherman’s Village and tried to find some sea lions but alas.

If you read my Livejournal back when I was studying abroad in London in 2011…remember Simon??? My Australian friend, he came back for Kiley’s wedding.

Repotting a few workroom plants

Untitled
And then making a double chili recipe, half for the evening and half for a work potluck

Untitled
Untitled
My assistants

Untitled
Untitled
Decided to reach deep into my half Japanese heart and get more into matcha on the regular. Bought this little set so I could prepare matcha powder at home.

Untitled
First attempt, with coconut milk! I think it’d be better with soy.

Untitled
Untitled
My farewell gift for James and Dan who are both moving together to Arizona.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Chili and leftovers meal around the table in the kitchen. These felt regular for a while, but this one felt extra special knowing that James and Dan are departing. We’ve only been here in this house a few months, but I’m grateful for all the memories already made in the kitchen.

Soon more friends arrived

Untitled
Everybody gathered, snacks were dipped into, and then once it was dark we started the classic 2000 film: Charlie’s Angels!

A lovely end to a solid week. Thanks for reading!

  1. On my mind lately:
    My best friend just moved to DC (about a 9 hour drive). I am struggling with wanting to call him to see if he wants to hang out, forgetting that he is so far away.

    My final semester of the MBA program I’m in starts today. The break between summer and fall felt so long, but so short. Already trying my best to remain calm and not get overwhelmed.

    The weather in Georgia has been rainy and moody, I need a little bit of sunshine.

    Loved this post!

    1. It’s so hard when good friends move away, I’ve had some close friends move to another state and I’m still adjusting too.

      Good luck in your last semester, so awesome that you’ll soon be an MBA genius.
