It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a BLOGGER.

Brian Kaldorf is a local photographer who I had the pleasure of meeting and being photographed by last summer for a local publication. The picture never ran (long story), but here is the final version of it:

First, the concept was all Brian’s. I was told to bring a white button down shirt to his studio. Since I’m a good sport who would much rather take a fun picture than a serious wind in the hair, work it, work it, tiger says mmmrowr picture, I happily obliged, even when handed the giant black glasses. I never wore a black and gold tie, so that was something he added to the picture after the fact, but it looks like I’m actually wearing it. Talent.

I never shared the picture with you because, well, and I say this from the bottom of my heart, I much prefer you don’t look at me. I’m serious. Ask my husband. The other day we were driving somewhere, to downtown I think, and I fell asleep in the passenger seat (as opposed to those times I fall asleep at the wheel, natch). We were stopped at a light when I woke up to find my husband just looking at me and while most women would be all, “My man loves me and wishes to gaze upon my countenance. How sweet.” I was all, “STOP FREAKING LOOKING AT ME!”

True. Story.

Anyway, I wanted to share Brian’s picture of me now because I found this series of photographs he recently did that center around Alice in Wonderland and they are just amazing.

If you have one of those funky offices full of modern furniture, or a colorful playroom, or if you work in a colorful, hip, creative office where people get to wear jeans to work everyday (hiya, Google), then I guarantee these will look fantastic hanging on your walls. And they’re affordable!

My two faves are below, but you must check out the whole series to see his beautiful imagining of the Cheshire Cat, Alice falling through the rabbit hole, the flowers, the caterpillar and the tea party.

Alice and “Drink me”:

Stunning.

Now, if you’ll excuse me. I need to find a phone booth to change in. I hear the distressing call of a pigeon that needs to die.

As if there was ever any doubt about what my super power would be.

    Ginny pulling open a button shirt?!?!?! How am I supposed to function today after looking at that? Way too much distraction for an old guy. Bucdaddy…any coping suggestions here?

    Great photo!

    And I’m the same way with my hubby in the car. Glad to hear I’m not the only one. I can’t fall asleep in the car anymore because he FREAKIN’ STARES at me. STOP IT! ;-)

    I probably have to defer to the gents… rrr, men… but I’m pretty sure that is a pretty mmmrowr. All the tween boys I know would want that on their wall of super heroes. Which will probably really gross you out when your boy is a tween. Mmmrowr… Pittgirl is my superhero…

    I could have done without the Pirates T.

    Shut UP! I know what you’re thinking, but that’s not what I meant. You could have just worn the white dress shirt, (mostly) buttoned up. Two things that always, always, look great on a woman:

    1. Little black dress.

    2. Man’s white dress shirt with nothing else. OK, maybe the tie, and the promise it entails. But that’s IT!

    Take THAT, LaMont.

    While I like the picture, it would be nice to have seen the original version without the Pirates tee photoshopped in…

    Per Kathy…definitely mrowr.

    Let me tell you (and Jonathan can attest) I was a man on a mission to find this photo of you from when Brian put it out on his Twitter stream during BRESMA.

    I eventually found it and was hanging onto it for a future occasion (a blog post, though my blog is now dead and gone). It’s an AWESOME picture. Just awesome.

    Are those really your Donnie Iris glasses or is it part of the get-up?

    Let me just say that the Donnie Iris glasses were the VERY LAST things I was wondering if were really yours! I’ll now go and practice bucdaddy’s suggestions. Over and over again.

    Glasses?

    *looks again, finally finds glasses*

    Wait … are y’all saying … are y’all thinking … me and Fortune 410?

    *ponders his masculinity*

    Um … yeah, yeah, I’m alright with that.
