For the Love of Chandeliers

My friend Lauren sent me this post from one of our favorite blogs, Kingdom of Style about chandeliers designed by BOA Design Studio. I get it. It's contemporary. But I don't think it's a chandelier. Just say the word, chandelier, it's grand and elegant sounding. They shine and sparkle with beautiful details. I feel as though this minimalist creation by BOA needs a new name other than chandelier. To be honest, I thought calling this piece a chandelier was inaccurate to say the least. In fact I was so annoyed I frantically searched the internet (and my own photos) for chandeliers that meet my ideal of what a chandelier looks like.

So give me drama, details, crystals and elegance or give me death!

Manson Girls Dumpster Diving

Manson Girls Dumpster Diving, originally uploaded by cmaio.

I found this picture of the Manson girls dumpster diving. I've always liked it in terms of the tonal range, and composition. I book marked it ages ago and can't seem to find the site I found it on never the less the name of the person who took the photo. Anyone know?
