This is one of the first photographs I took, while visiting the Samuel Cupples Mansion, after Joseph Gordon-Levitt, HitRECord, and Sony so generously sent me the new Sony RX100 MII camera... and now prints are available!
Last year, hidden away in a dusty corner of one of my favorite antique stores, I discovered this decorative wooden bench. The $20 price tag and carved details were too good to ignore and I quickly scooped it up. Even with its (original) dingy blue legs and worn crushed velvet body, I hoped that one day I could restore its soulless existence into something more appealing. After a little black paint and the beautiful design of this hand-woven Malian mud cloth, it looks better than ever!
