Frida & Me


While shopping in Taos we went into our favorite store called Red Cat Antiques. I was walking past this mirror and as I looked back I noticed this Frida Kahlo lampshade in the reflection. No matter where I stood there was no way of staying out of the reflection so I ended up in the shot.

Maybe an omen that you should have taken Frida home with you?

I don't think she minded sharing the stage - just this once.

That sounds like a fun place to peek around in! I have a Frida apron & dish towels. How can you not love Frida?!
Happy Weekend, Randy!

Oh, wow. I moved that movie. I had never heard about her until I saw it. I would love to see some of her original work.

There seems to be a real Frida industry putting her image on everything. I wonder how she would feel about it? Nice shot Randy.

JM said...

I'm a big fan of Frida. Loved visiting her Blue House at Coyoacán.

Magpie said...

I agree with Kathy. I think she wanted to go home with you. Great shot. It looks like a very interesting store.

It's OK. I was in my own reflection shot yesterday, too.

I don't mind the reflection! It actually adds character to the photo. Neat find. I know I've said it before, but you have a great eye for the unique, beautiful things that most people would only notice in passing. Great shot.

Olga said...

It is actually very funny. You have noticed Frida Khalo when she watched you:)

Allison said...

You got great jeans, Randy! My hems look much more raggedy than yours. :)

I suppose I should know the name, Frida whatever who is the designer of lampshades, but I do not.

I can't tell from the photo if it is a lampshade to my liking, either.

So, I'll just have to say, Frida must be something to have one of her creations appear in a photo of your bluejeaned legs!
