Flower Architecture: i102fly
Model: Olga Sannikova
This piece was created for a performance in Russia. modeled by my friend who coincidentally is Russian. Isn't she wearing the heck out of this thing! Olga is one of the coolest people I know. Not only is she the most down to earth person you'll ever meet with a heart of gold, but she's into all sorts of crazy things, like flying planes (she's a pilot!), riding motorcycles, mastering concertos on the piano, and globe-trotting. After Kilimanjaro, definitely one of my favorite travel mates. Next stop Russian... maybe not. Come on someone go there with me.
It's a little intimidating for a non-Russian speaker, but as far as travel goes, it's at the top of my list. Reasoning is kind of weird, my grandfather collected mail-order paperbacks in the sixties. Some were stored in my room as a kid, I stared at the book spines for about two decades until finally deciding to see what Anna Karenina was really about. To this day, it is still the greatest (but seriously..not the only) book I've ever read. As a devotee of Tolstoy, it is my duty to see the motherland.
Still plowing away at my website, by the way.
