This is my favorite photo at the moment. Meet Liza and planetx. They're standing in front of the Baldwin 60,000, a 350 ton steam engine built in 1926 and owned by the Franklin Institute. We did this last Tuesday.

I'll be doing more steam punk shoots in the next week or so. But I'm really happy with the way this came out. Both Liza and Jared made their costumes, Jared also made a bunch of light-up steampunk props.

houston, i have a problem

So, trillian_stars and I just got back from something fabulous and decided that we'd had enough excitement for the night and we should retire to bed and read Flashman. I began to gather up my books -- the books which had been acquired today that either arrived from amazon.com or I bought in one of the two bookstores we hit today and Roswell, noticing this, promptly sat on the books. Well, you know you can't disturb a cat when it's sat on something. So Trillian said "Now we must listen to DAVID BOWIE sing Little Wonder, because it's about Roswell."

One of the lovely things about Trillian is that our David Bowie collections have little overlap. Most of mine are from the 70's and 80's and most of hers are from the 90's (where it seems like David has been listening to an awful lot of CURVE (which is not a bad thing by any means)).

So Trillian put on DAVID BOWIE and I LOOKED at the books I'd bought in the dozen hours I'd been awake today and I'm freaking HORRIFIED at this rate, not only will I fill up all the "new" book shelf space that we got when we installed the floor-to-ceilings in a matter of weeks, but the house will likely SINK INTO THE EARTH during the night some time soon.



And this doesn't include the biography of Beerbohm Tree that Trill bought.

I have a problem. I'm a bibliophile. That's not my problem. My problem is that we need more floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

I think now we may retire and read Flashman. There sure are a lot of huge empty walls in the bedroom....
