Refrigerator Details

The new little camera-tripod gift has got me wandering around the flat photographing things I never bothered with before, such as this sample-section of the flotsam on the refrigerator door.

Iris Murdoch (1919-1999) by Jill Krementz

Roland Barthes (1915-1980)

Derek Jarman (1942-1994) with Keith Collins

Marie-Helene de Rothschild (1927-1996)
Loulou de la Falaise (1948-2011)
Alexis de Rede (1922-2004)
Jacqueline de Ribes (b. 1929)

Jean Genet (1910-1986)

Joe Dallesandro (born 1948)

Paper (I like the design better upside-down, as shown) recycled by my daughter for wrapping the 2010 Northern California Tide Log she and her husband gave me for Christmas this year. I know nothing about navigation, but living in San Francisco right up next to the Pacific Ocean makes me vaguely glad to be informed that during this current week "a full moon at perigee combines with Earth at perihelion to produce higher than normal currents and tidal ranges ("perigean spring tides").

Sunburned librarian on Maui during Christmas vacation 2007, where rest and recreation definitely did not involve taking pictures of the refrigerator.
