A Beautiful Story: Congratulations Julien !!!

Last Summer, while shooting an editorial at our friend Emmanuelle and Julien's apartment in Paris.  I discovered some of Julien's drawing. I just loved them and they really showed his humour, talent and character as an amazing artist and graphic designer, So I photographed them for our story (Hoping that would be alright with him).
 When they returned from vacation in the south of France, I confessed to what I had done. He laughed and  explained that it was a project he was working on for fun but had not gotten together yet. He was happy that I liked them and was kind enough to offer some to me :-)
Well I will let him finish the story in his email he wrote:-)

"Hi guys!

Here is a beautiful story :
You remember my drawings this summer?
I was glad you liked it so I ve decided to send it to you.
When I brought it back to my agency to send it, my friend Xavier saw it and liked it.
So he decided to show it to Alex the owner of 0fr bookstore and Alex liked it!
So my drawings are there from today at 0fr, and I will show it at the Bon Marché next month!
Thanks to you!
See you soon!

Here are the photos the installation, I have called the serie "El Fumador""






It is the same OFR I visited and photographed for the blog :-) I Love it!!!! 

I am so happy for Julien and For my friends at OfR

Clear Amend Plant

Well Thank goodness Conor could come by and help us get the winter garden in! We began by harvesting the last of the summer plants in the long box and clearing it. I felt so sad to pull the plants out , they still looked so hopeful but it was clear that we had planted these too late and there was not enough Sun and warmth to keep them going. We were not going to have the winter crop suffer the same consequences . 
After clearing everything we amended the boxes with compost and fresh soil ( those summer plants took a lot out of the soil and we needed to get some nutrients back in) We made sure to mix it well and break up any clumps. Then with a beautiful map and plants from Nysha, at  Ardenwood Edibles, we planned out where to plant and went to work
We have Brussel sprouts, cauliflower,mustard greens, shard,artichoke,spigarilla,leeks,beets,carrots and lots of other greens. I am so excited to see how we do
Make sure you check out

Tomatoes and Watermelon

Patrice and I ate this first at The Bazaar @ the SLS in Beverly Hills from a Favorite Chef that I photographed a while back, José Andrés. It may look or sound a bit odd but it is really such an elegant and refreshing bite.
Simply cut up an ice cold watermelon into cubes and add the hearts of the tomatoes (or seed part), this works great if you are making sauce because they always ask you to de-seed the tomato, then add a baby Basil leaf to the top....... The color is so beautiful and on a warm afternoon, I can't think of anything better :-) 
More fun stuff made from the tomatoes and basil in the garden ...my watermelon was taken over by squash :-)
