Caren Alpert makes a living taking recognizable photos of food. This led to her interest in showing the landscapes, patterns, and textures of different foods. Her intention was to create a completely new response to food from her viewers, and it sure has.
"Photographs taken with electron microscopes have seized my interest because of their mystery and simultaneous familiarity. This medium deconstructs, abstracts, and reveals the ordinary in a riveting way. The closer the lens got, the more I saw food - and consumers of food - as part of a larger eco-system.
There's so much rhetoric in our culture around food: food science, food journalism, food history, and food how-to. It is my hope that these photographs might transform our food obsession into a newfound closeness with what nourishes us."

I'm not sure why, but 1920's fashion has been making its way back in full force, and I like it. This shoot by Signe Vilstrup, for Harrods Magazine, gives us a glimpse back at the Roaring Twenties. The styles are simple, yet elegant, and are getting me pumped up to see the upcoming Great Gatsby movie.
Jessica R is a 25 year old graphic artist/web editor and fashion blogger from the Bay Area of California. Here's a little excerpt from her blog Hapa Time:
"Even though at this point (after blogging for 10 months - 10.9.12) I almost exclusively show off my sponsor's clothing, I make sure to keep it classy, on trend, subtly sexy, edgy, modern and almost always polished. I always pick the items I style and am very selective. I try to keep a style that is affordable too though affordable is very subjective, I would say a young working woman in her 20's and early 30's would be happiest taking any kind of advice from me or my blog!"
