Things To Look At While in the Loo

For my birthday I asked for books to look at when I was on the loo. Here is my reading material.

In the American West by Richard Avedon is my favorite photography book.

Vanity Fair: The Portraits: A Century of Icon Images has some really cool portraits by Annie Leibovitz, like this one of Jack Nicholson and Hunter S. Thompson.

Native Land Native People Form The Edward S. Curtis Collection needs no introduction.

Shopping for Porcupine: A Life in Arctic Alaska by photographer/writer Seth Kantner. This memoir describes his rural upbringings in Northern Alaska and his quest to find acceptance in modern society.

i am glad to see that you comment again. it took me a handful of trys to work up the bravery.

Yeah, I don't know why it wasn't working before-- probably something on my end, as in user error. I'm a bonehead.

About that picture-- you did a good job "tucking." Did you also go for the Brazilian beforehand?

Avedon is amazing. I'm always afraid to put my good books in the w.c. though, I'm worried they'll get wet. I stick with a stack of GQs.

Its a dilemma i struggle with everyday Angelo.
