Today’s fallout shelter visit takes us to lovely Los Angeles of 1951, 10333 Santa Monica Blvd specifically. This is the vivacious Mary Lou Miner sitting atop a domed, cinderblock shelter. Those cat-eyed sunglasses in her hand are great. I would wear this entire outfit today, but likely with different underthings.
The original caption for this image notes that the lass is “sunning herself” but it looks more like she’s balancing pretty precariously to me.
It’s a beautiful summer day today, so why don’t you find yourself a shelter on which to sun yourself.
Strange, but she sure looks good! :)

WiFi’s been hard to come by and I’ve been on the go pretty much none stop and getting to know my new trek mates so this post is a few days late. (sorry!) Whilst in LA I went on the VIP Warner Brothers tour. I was super excited about it as being a TV and film nerd it was really interesting for me to see how American studios are run. It was an amazing tour and Berlyn (our tour guide) was so informative and helped cater the tour to what shows we all liked. I would definitely recommend it and I’ll write a more in depth review when I get home.
Wonderful shot! :)

There is a magic about the sea. People are drawn to it. People want to love by it, swim in it, play in it, look at it. It is a living thing that is as unpredictable as a great stage actor. – Cecelia Ahern

When thinking of feet, one immediately zooms in on the physical aspects: stubby toes, flat feet, unshapely nails – when our feet represent so much more. Before there were cars and bicycles and trains, man’s most reliable mode of transportation were his own two feet. Our feet are as unique as the markings on our thumbs and the DNA swimming in our cells. Our feet are a cultural road map: my own feet sport the jewels of my Asian-Indian heritage. Our feet are symbols of our mortality: reminders of the fleeting imprint we make on this earth before the “sands of time” wash away our remains.
So true! :)

I have always really loved Shaden’s images they have a really strong fantasy element which always creates beautiful unique images.
This is a recent image of hers with the a fairy tale fantasy theme, this was posted on her blog
On her blog post she actually explained what her lighting set up was (Softbox directly above the model)
She supported this set up with the intensions of re-creating moonlight in a forest (actually shot in a studio)
When I looked at this image I really loved the contrasty shadows created by the single light set up, if there were lights there would be less shadows because it would fill them in and the image wouldn’t have worked so well.
She states that she used a soft box to diffuse the light.
I didn’t really catch onto the moonlight thing, i think the light has slightly the wrong tone as its a bit yellowy and i imagine moon light to be a lot whiter. And i don’t think moonlight would create a spotlight effect on only the model it would illuminate a lot more of her surroundings, but this probably wouldn’t have worked so well.
Before i read the blog post the image gave me the impression of night time (because of the mass of darkness) the harsh shadowing gives a moody feel to the image and gives a general spookiness and mysterious feel. The objects in the image and the model her self makes us question what is going on, all of Shaden’s images have a surreal quality to them and this image is no exception.
By using one light the image gives us a nighttime mysterious surreal feel due to the harsh shadows and surrounding darkness, this isn’t a happy upbeat image, it feels quite serious like something bad is about to happen.
Beautiful image! :)
