I recently finished reading The Sun Also Rises, another book I highly recommend. I am always surprised, when reading works from the 'lost generation', how the lifestyle and moral of the characters are similar to that of many people today while often being even more decadent. Affairs, travels, drinks, lots of drinks, music, toreros, friendships, broken hearts, being lost, broke: here's what Hemingway has in store for you.

Watch it also to see a then little known Carey Mulligan, who happens to be wearing an awesome blazer in this picture.)

I took all of these with a disposable camera, so expect guest appearances of my fingers, 'soft' focus (or plain out-of-focus!) and weird angles. I'm getting very fond of how unexpected the results are and how the pictures turned out to have some kind of a Diana effect.
Apparently, Brockville ON is the hometown of some die-hard Rush fans!
Here are my current favourites:
-The New Yorker
-Worn Fashion Journal (there's a new one out!)
-Marie Claire idées
-Le Point grand angle
This last one pleasantly surprised me: I bought the 'Paris comme vous ne l'avez jamais vue' issue, which was informative and esthetically appealing. Here are two of my favourite photos from the magazine (also the rare ones available online!):
Notice Boris Vian playing trumpet at the left!

A few new things:
-I also rediscovered radio by (finally!) finding one both small and with a good sound at Salvation Army (does anyone know if there's any jazz station in Montreal?)
-Neutrogena's Sheer sunscreen: it's not sticky!
-St. Henri brocantes: I found a pair of shoes similar to these for... $1 !
I'll be back with some cottage pictures (if I don't forget to pack my camera)!
