Love To Love

Shot Of The Day: May 30, 2015





QOTD: Wherever you are, whenever you speak
These are the moments in my life that I seek
No reason or rhyme, by chance or design
Just a dance to the music of time
— Bryan Ferry

Quote from The Hip Pocket Guide To Offbeat Wisdom by William Sauer

Backstory: Ochun is syncretized as Caridad del Cobre in Cuba, is called Erzulie in Haiti, Venus in the Roman pantheon, and Aphrodite in the Greek system. Regarding this shot – my friend Jose, who runs the local botanica, wants to sell me this statue for $120 because I collect mystical / surrealist artifacts. I don’t think it would go over big if I came home with a giant statue. My props have already taken over the house. I don’t know how this happened and am demanding a full investigation. — TAG
