Dior Exhibition


Earlier this week I flew to Melbourne for a short break and went to see the Dior Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. This exhibit has more than 200 garments, items, still photos, sketches and several films. It's a Dior past to present day extravaganza. I loved it. Photography (no flash) was permitted and as there were lots of mirrors there were lovely reflections. Here are some.



The girl reflected in the right hand corner was remarking on the craftsmanship of the skirt...


50's glamour to the max


Reflected


Impossible not to want to take photos!


The original parade



Lastly, Miranda Kerr's wedding dress. The material and hand appliqué flowers make it more stunning in real life than it is in photos. Very regal. 

Sharing to Weekend Reflections. Have a good weekend,
Val.

More than just Clouds in my Coffee

Hi all,
My post title is referring to song line "I had some dreams, They were clouds in my coffee" from You're So Vain by Carly Simon. I just loved Carly Simon when I was a teen. Anyway, yesterday I was sewing at home and about to refill my coffee cup, having thrown some granules into my mug when I noticed a great swirly pattern in the bottom of the cup, so out came the camera..



Can you see my fingers and the top of the camera?


Having fun with spin blur in Photoshop


Does anyone else see a little alien?

Have a good weekend everybody,
Valerie.
