Back in December, Ray and I headed down to Los Angeles to shoot the SRL show at the Extreme Futurist Festival. We had photographed SRL back in 2006, and we were honored when we were asked to help photograph their most recent US show. You can see more photos on Flickr.

Urban Air Market http://candyandcharm.com/urban-air-market/ Mon, 17 Sep 2012 03:32:32 +0000 http://candyandcharm.com/?p=76

Today I walked over to Hayes Valley for the Urban Air Market (formerly Capsule Design). What a treat! This is definitely a well-curated market because every single vendor there was top notch. Below are a few of my favorites.

I met Domingo from Unpossible Cuts, who along with his business partner, create whimsical and cheeky laser cut jewelry and clocks in the shape of Space Invaders, boom boxes, unicorns, and more. They are having a sale at their Etsy store, so definitely check that out.

Alameda Antiques Fair http://candyandcharm.com/alameda-flea-market/ Sat, 10 Mar 2012 22:26:00 +0000 http://candyandcharm.com/?p=8

The Alameda Antiques Fair (aka the Alameda Flea Market) is a San Francisco Bay Area favorite where everything sold is vintage, and must be at least 20 years old. You can pick up fabulous antiques and lots of quirky stuff which is always my favorite. This month I checked out the flea market with my family and found loads of great stuff. In addition to the great booths, there are a number of stands and food trucks with amazingly yummy treats to fuel your shopping. Check out the next Alameda Antiques Fair on Sunday, April 1st.

The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye http://candyandcharm.com/the-ballad-of-genesis-and-lady-jaye/ Sat, 10 Mar 2012 06:21:01 +0000 http://candyandcharm.com/?p=39

Last night I had a chance to see The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye, directed by Marie Losier. This beautiful and thought-provoking film is very experiential and dreamy, and a departure from traditional documentary films. Marie documented the love relationship between Genesis Breyer P. Orridge and Lady Jaye and their “Pandrogyne” project where they had plastic surgery to better resemble one another. Industrial music fans know Genesis as a member of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV. The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye is playing in SF at the Embarcadero Cinemas.

About a month ago my husband, Ray, and I had chance to briefly meet Genesis at the pre-party for the film. Here’s a photo of Genesis (left) and Ray (right).

Whenever I visit the Metreon here in San Francisco, I always make it a point to cruise by Chronicle Books to see their new titles.

West Elm Emeryville

Collect. Curate. Create. We all are consumers and connoisseurs in our own way, and Pinterest is a celebration of that, as well as a tool for making it easy for us to collect and share our interests with others. Thursday night I headed over to the Pinterest SF meetup with my friend and fellow photographer, Jen Longaway. West Elm of Emerville hosted the event, with amazing sweet treats from . It was great to meet two of the founders of Pinterest, Ben and Paul, as well as other Pinterest users.
