[ch. 43 / hong kong]
Made my annual visit to Hong Kong last November, and just when I thought I couldn't possibly come back with new images, I surprise myself again. It rained just about every day I was there, but I'm kinda loving the overcast and darkness of these shots.
Check out other Hong Kong shots I posted on Instagram: @bluepoolroad
Enjoy your weekend!

This was a GREAT shoot for the Australian magazine, Belle (which happened back in May of 2012, and I'm thrilled that I can finally share this with you!) The lovely and talented writer, Carli Philips and I spent a few days exploring in and around Los Angeles. We visited many iconic and mid century modern homes in the city, and you know how much I love shooting architecture, so this was a perfect assignment for me. On the agenda were the Stahl House by Pierre Koenig (shown above as the opener), Sheats-Goldstein Residence by John Lautner, and the Reunion House by Dion Neutra. Of course I had to show off Silver Lake (my hood!), so LAMILL, Lawson-Fenning, Intelligentsia, and many others were featured in the story as well.
Below are a few of my faves from the story, enjoy and Happy New Year! x
PS. will be posting outtakes from this shoot next week, so stay tuned.

Honored to be chosen as a winner of Print's Regional Design Annual! Pure Plant Spa is a luxurious plant-derived brand of skin care products—made with pure essential oils and is paraben- and sulfate-free. Not only did I work on their packaging, but also their entire branding program. Imagine my surprise when I saw this on the shelves of Fred Segal. Not gonna lie, it felt amazing!

Remember when I first announced my pw.travelogue tile collection with clé? Well, New York Times seemed to be just as excited as we were about the collection—they featured it in their 2012 Holiday Gift Guide!
