Take Another Piece of My Heart




A select group of iconic Vogue photographs is now available as limited-edition prints. My favorite one in the group is this photo of Cher. To view all of them, go to www.condenaststore.com.
Maybe if my photography skills were better, I would be able to get more pictures of my daughters. As it is, I'm constantly badgering them to let me photograph them. Oh well.

I love this quote: Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely.

Cher is iconic, but she wouldn't be allowed to travel by air with those things - glasses of that size could be used as a club.

Ann said...

Cher looks great there but scary now. My girls love to be in front of the camera, I'm the one that hates having her pics taken. Off to check out the links.Happy Tuesday! :)

Isabel said...

Wow, Cher usually creeps me out but she looks so damn good there!

Dominica said...

Cher has THE most awesome glasses on ! I think they might be the original Ray Bans pilot glasses ! Looks a lot like my fancy specs from RB (check them out on my little video where you can see me doin' the Pokerface song - maybe it's still hilarious to watch)
and love the quote too !

That Cher photo is something of beauty. The stick figured one is hilarious, because it reminds me of the rejections I get sometimes shooting. The quote is very inspiring but since I'm a man, unfortunately I'm unable to use my heart, but more like my two heads lol...just being honest

Miriam: (in an Elvis voice) Thank you, thank you very much.

frances: Bribery doesn't work. I'll have to go the extra mile and boost their self-esteem.

Mo.stoneskin: You're so right, they look like they could swallow her head.

Ann: I think Cher has had too much "work" done.
My girls used to love being photographed. Then they got older.

Isabel: I know, right?

Dominica: Of course you would pick up on the designer for those frames. Btw, you looked great in your shades in that video. It will always remain a classic.

JFK Jean: I was hoping my photographer friends would relate to that drawing, I'm so glad you did. Men have hearts, too. Sometimes it just takes a little longer to tune in to it. I think you are very brave to be so honest though.

good stuff, thanks for the link.

I hear that...my heart sometimes whispers because my brain takes over. That photo of Cher is divine. Next post should be about your lovely photos..or rather your favorite you have taken lately....

Re: your comment on my blog. The guy with the flower crown is Stephen Malkmus who was the lead singer of Pavement (I used to have a massive crush on him).

diane said...

SkylersDad: Cool, I'm glad you're looking up those photos.

Dooder City: I bet you had a massive crush on him, he's beautiful.

Gary Heller said...

she does look great in that photo. Love the stick figures of your photography dilema

diane said...

Gary H: It's great to be able to make fun and not take ourselves so seriously. I'm glad you approve. xo

Bella said...

Chelsea Bryan Knights said...

That quote is so inspiring.

I love the stick drawings..oh Cher...back before any of that plastic stuff. She was so original then.

Jack Daniel said...

I love quotes like these. :)

In bed, at night...just listen to your inner self. I think you'll hear the voice of your body.

Doesn't cher look gorgeous in this pic? Women of that area were the most beautiful women ever existed!
