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.

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.
