when my mom visited, we stepped into Tiffany’s for the first time. at her “when in rome” insistence, i tried on a 2-carat ring ticketed at $56,000. it was gorgeous, but not what i want.
since then, i’ve been thinking about rings. not because i want to be engaged, or because i have any grand ideas about weddings. this is solely about metal work and heirloom thoughts that have been dancing in my mind.
thus, i have formed four requirements for my in-the-very-distant-future ring. (distant-future self: take note!)

“In 1960, more women than ever were marrying, and at younger ages; it’s possible that Fitzhugh and Lee, whose protagonists are considered by biographers and scholars to be their alter egos, were registering their protest against the ubiquity of marriage and subtly agitating for female independence.”

At first glance, it looks like there’s some serious Photoshop trickery going on in these photos, but in fact, they were produced using one of the oldest techniques in the book: camera obscura!
Massachusetts-based photographer Abelardo Morell has been creating photos with the antique process since 1991, so he’s what we’d call a pro.
