All About Eve (Sturges)

March 8, 2011

You know that saying, “She is an old soul”? My good friend and creator of The Magpie List, Eve Sturges, is a woman who so perfectly embodies that sentiment.  The lovely Miss Sturges lends her wisdom and creativity to two current online outlets, the aforementioned “blist” (blog-meets-list) and a more intimate writing forum Papercuts and Hummingbirds, where she muses on parenthood, new love, and childhood memories.

Eve recently asked if I’d be interested in taking some press photos for her Magpie List, a site that encourages the public to submit lists of media (and more) which inspires them (here’s my list if you’re interested in that kind of thing), and thus serves as a source for others to gather new inspiration.  Because Eve’s passions are reading and writing, books quickly became an obvious theme for our photoshoot.  Since Eve is an “old soul”, I also took a cue from 1950s pin-up photos and images of old screen sirens for her overall look in the pictures.  Armed with my unpredictable old 35mm Minolta (which is vintage in itself!) and the gorgeous 100 speed Fuji Acros film, we finally made photo magic after a few unsuccessful attempts (more to follow on the vintage photography books that became my saviors!).  Enjoy…and don’t forget to submit to the Magpie List!!!
