The Christian Science Monitor’s Photos of the Day are the gift that keep on giving. Check out this fun capture of David Bowie peering out from a man’s jacket on a hand painted tie in London. Another smashing on the spot capture.
This must be my lucky day for images. Another great capture. Love, love, love the hat. Naturally.
I absolutely adore this image. A lot of the photographs I feature here are ones that caught my eye and I really like or find interesting. This image touches the artist in me. When I worked as a photographer I used to grab some of my best shots waiting to get a shot of something else. I wonder if that how Mr. Probst captured this one. Well done.
This is a lovely image to me for many reasons, one of them being the way Father Frost (or Santa Claus) is dressed.
Russian costuming is vibrant, rich and enchanting. Never is it more so than on the stage particularly when the story is from Russia’s rich history of fairytales.
One of my favorite Russian Operas is Ruslán y Lyudmila (Ruslan and Lyudmila) by Mikhail Glinka based on a Pushkin fairytale.
The production I am most familiar with is from 1995 and stars Russian soprano Anna Nebtreko as Lyudmila.
This five act Opera is staged at the Marinsky Theater. The ballet sequence is danced by the Bolshoi. Exquisite. The conductor Gregiev noticed Anna and of course she became a star. As you will see the costumes are marvelous, especially noticeable when she is joined by the Chorus as 2:35.

I love everything about this hat. Except the cruelty. Everywhere you look, there it is.
This at least, my favorite of all time, is animal free. It’s a straw. But what about the embellishment? Feathers. Oh, well. Sigh.

Are there vegan hats? And I don’t mean baseball hats which say go vegan on them.
I am doing some research on this. There are some exciting trends out there and they are deluxe. See you back here soon.
