Min Jiang - a real treat. If you had told me that I would meet my future husband at 21 when I was a teenager, I would have laughed in your face. How ridiculously old-fashioned... But as it turns out, it's been wonderful!
Our song :)
January slump I felt I needed a change, and so after having a think I realised that maybe it was about time I'd try and learn Japanese. It's something I've wanted to do for years, but I kind of forgot that I wanted to. I've only got a few lessons left on my 14 week intensive course and I have already signed up for my second year (I'm loving it!). Me and the hubby made a pact; this is something I'm not to give up on (Spanish and piano are some of the things I've laid to rest in the past) - this is for the long haul. If all goes well I only have another five or so years to go before I'm fluent :)
Have you set yourself a new challenge this year? I'd love to know!
this post I wrote about Saul Leiter a few years back, but as you can see by the pictures, the man is a genius - my absolute favourite photographer of all time. He has shunned the limelight and apart from reading the introduction in his "Early Colour" book, I don't know that much about him. When I heard that a colleague of my husband was making a documentary about him I kind of punched the air. Well, it's almost ready and I can't wait to see it, but they are a bit short on funding in order to complete it. So, I want to do my bit and spread the word. Every little counts and if you can, please donate and forward to the link on your own blogs. The trailer makes me a bit teary, I mean this man is like a God to me, and yet he's so humble. All he really wanted was to make a "little book". Nothing more. Amazing.
Bauhaus exhibition at the Barbican (I couldn't sneak any pics inside) and if you're in town I can highly recommend it. I've seen countless Bauhaus related exhibitions over the years, but it turns out you can't ever see too much of it. Oomoo got a chance to have a run around the Barbican complex afterwards and so everyone was happy! Just as with South Bank I used to think the Barbican was a terrible eye sore, but now I loves it :)
