No 587: Pearls

Thursday, July 8, 2010

I'll have them fly to India for gold, ransack the ocean for orient pearl.

Miss B over at the Blah, Blah, Blagh introduced me to Tom Palumbo's flickr, and it was love at first sight. I recognized his work for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, but I'd never seen these gorgeous candid images before, like the one above. Pictured with his wife of many years, model Anne St. Marie, the unabashed joy in this photo is breathtaking.


  1. I can't decide which I love more---your quote or the photograph? Off to check out this Flickr account you speak of!

  2. Katie, I thought about not including the quote, and what a terrible idea it would have been! The flickr account is heavenly. I wish my life looked like his Paris 1962 photos!

  3. I love this! Pearls are my favorite- my hubby got me a nice strand four years ago and they are so special to me.

  4. Pearls are my favorite, too! Way better than diamonds, in my personal estimation.
