It’s time for another roundup of photos I’ve taken and enjoyed but haven’t had a place to share yet.

It’s been awhile since I did a roundup of the photos I’ve taken but hadn’t yet shared. Here it is …
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it but my beaux and I met through the How About We dating site. They offer a second site for couples and we’re part of that site now. Through an affordable membership we get the opportunity to go on unique dates in the city every month. Recently we went on a date to make terrariums at Workshop SF, a venue for crafty classes.
There’s an upcoming performance here in San Francisco that I’m keeping my eye on. It’s called Patterns is part of the emerging theatre called The New Stage. The performance will be held at The Dennis Gallagher Arts Pavilion at the French American International High School.
This is a one-woman show. I love solo performances, especially when there are multiple characters, which is the case here. I just think it takes immense talent as well as confidence to do this kind of performance.
There’s something oddly inspiring and interesting about this fashion / shoe/ art video.
It’s from a live performance art event where shoe designer Benjamin John Hall used destructive processes – smashing, dyeing – to create an innovative artistic shoe design.
The work was inspired by the 1960s Destructivist art movement in London. However the Destructivists would have just flat out destroyed the shoe whereas Hall transforms it – speaking, I believe, to the upcycling culture that’s so important to us today.

I learned from the newsletter of artist Bonnie Meltzer that there is an art project happening in Oregon this fall to fill rural storefronts with creativity.
I’m not in Oregon, of course, so I’m not going to see it but I’ve seen similar projects take place here in San Francisco over the years and it’s always inspiring. I’m sure Bonnie is going to do something fun and original with her mixed media work and I look forward to following along via her future newsletters!
I recently shared that I’d done a creativity/spirituality process for a grad school class. I shared my original proposal. Throughout the semester we did forum posts with updates about our process and progress. I thought today I’d share the final post that I did at the end of the course, which I titled Looking Forward.
