A Fashion Favorite- Blue And White

Oh…the beauty of blue and white. It really is hard to beat. The two colors look great on everyone- men, women and kids. A simple wardrobe of pieces can be bought inexpensively. And every year you can easily add to it. For this small photo shoot I did just that. I pulled from my own closet a few favorites and mixed in some new blue and white purchases.

Then&Now- Go West

Then- The book ‘Hard Twist,’ written by Barbara Van Cleve with her black & white images, was published in 1995. Spanning over a decade, Van Cleve traveled the wild west states- Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico and others. Instead of photographing cowboys, she focused her lens on their female counterpart. Her portraits capture these hardworking yet tender women ranchers at their best.

Portraits- Kim Davis, CS Ranch, 1986 (top right), Melody Harding, Bar Cross Ranch, 1986 (middle left), Kim Davis, 1986 (middle left) and Dee Dee Dickinson, Vermillion Ranch, 1993 (bottom)
