  6. DAY 15 - Tuesday, April 2nd - New Orleans

    Jim Russell Rare Records


    I almost don’t want to share this find with anyone, and keep it to myself forever. But if I must… Sarah and I stumbled upon this amazing record shop at the far east end of Magazine Street. Bins and bins of 45’s and 32’s, walls with ceiling to floor shelves, completely filled with beautiful old records. Of course with an amazing jazz collection, probably the best you will find just about anywhere. They were only open for another 10 minutes when we walked through the door, but it was enough time to be in complete awe, and to find two fantastic albums to take home with me. -misha

  7. Still going back in time to the DooNanny! Time travel is fun!

    DAY 7-14 - Monday, March 26th-April 1st, 2012 - Seale, Alabama

    This is us making our wonderful 16th Annual DooNanny booth. We dragged pieces of wood from the fire pit, carting them back to our booth in the hot sun. Hammered and nailed together an incredibly cool wall, painted it white and were instantly jealous of this booth for our future shows. The art that both Misha and I make is so colorful that we decided to give it a neutral clean background so everything would pop and stand out from afar. After we saw how cool the white wall was, we rummaged around Butch’s barn and found tables, chairs, chandeliers, candlesticks holders, and lamps to paint white as well. We found perfectly chopped logs for display too. Oh man, it was a blast! Some of the other people around that week were probably thinking that was our art, but they had a big surprise coming!! -Sarah

  8. We’re going back in time now, to the DooNanny…

    I’ve been so incredibly busy doing my non-dot freelance job and painting the dots that I’ve gotten WAY behind Misha in my posting. Let’s change that now! And dont forget to scroll down past all of the New Orleans posts to see all of the rest of our many posts about the DOO.

    DAY 7 - Monday, March 26th 2012 - Seale, Alabama

    I fell in love with this floor. I mean come on, how can you not love such beautifully painted shapes and colors?!

    This is inside Misha’s uncle Butch’s house and where the DooNanny was happening. When you wind your way through the dirt roads you see his art everywhere, including the Museum of Wonder. Just absolutely amazing! 

    I still can’t stop thinking about this floor. -Sarah

  9. DAY 15 - Tuesday, April 2nd - New Orleans

    Abandoned School


    If you know me at all, you know that I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing broken down, rusty, dilapidated things. While Sarah and I were driving around the neighborhoods looking for my old home, we stumbled upon this little gem. I was really hoping it was my old school, Robert E Lee Elementry, but it was not. Sadly we could not get inside the school, but I still managed to take a few rolls of the outside. I cannot wait to get these developed, they will make the perfect addition to the “abandoned” chapter of my New Orleans book, which will probably be Volume 3 in my photo book series, Adventures in Lomography. (Volume 1 is New York, which I self published in Fall 2011, you can check it out here.) -misha

  10. DAY 15 - Tuesday, April 2nd - New Orleans

    Snowballs at Plum Street Snowball

    After we found my old house, which was in a bit of a sad state, I took Sarah to my favorite snowball shop. I am always amazed to hear that snowballs are not a tourist attraction. Most people have never heard of them. They may look like simple snow cones, but don’t be mistaken. Snowballs are shaved ice (not crushed), with many many choices of flavoring, and smothered in condensed milk. They also come in a cup, instead of a puny little cone. I got a blackberry cream snowball. Talk about a sugar high, and yet still oh so perfect for a hot 80 degree day. (dont forget your cash)
