This is a brief interlude from L.A. experiences ...

This Foolish Aesthete is preparing for a ballet photo shoot this weekend.  Pointe shoes need to be sewn up and broken in.  They are only pristine once, so I didn't want to miss the chance to photograph them.

Brand new pointe shoes
in the afternoon light

Once in a while, it's fun to shoot with a soft, romantic effect.  It's a wonderful contrast to the sharp, contemporary edges I've been seeing all weekend.  Besides, the Rodarte exhibit at the MOCA reminded me of all my own costumes.  Unbloodied, but with their fair share of sweat and tears.


  1. Gosh such a beautiful image xxx

  2. Beautiful. Looking forward to the next images from the shoot. Xxxx

  3. Thank you, Ladies. I really love your photography!

  4. this shot is beautiful!!!

  5. More than the shoes I liked the dress. The embroidery work is doing marvels for that dress.


Dear Fellow Aesthetes, I love hearing your thoughts. I think the other readers find them valuable too! Much love xxx
