Day three of bathroom self portraiture. Two lights today. Not sure if I was ready for such a boost in complexity, but alas I proceeded. The steps that led to this precise shot were:

Get home all sweaty from the bike commute, change into red shorts because nothing else is clean, get cold and don hoodie, make dinner (incredible thick bread, self-ground peanut butter, honey [two slices altogether, toasted], Pabst Tall Boy), eat while setting up lights in bathroom, realize Pabst’s packaging perfectly matches my outfit, shoot. Oh, and all while listening to Roman Mars’s delightful podcast on design and architecture called 99% Invisible (find it on iTunes).

The bathroom is pink with pink and black tiles which is pretty sweet. Racy post cards straight from a lingerie outfitter in Italy courtesy of one of the lady roommates.

Tonight – finish one book and determine the next tome to devour. Authors on my desk: Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, Ralph Waldo Emerson, David Foster Wallace.
