Eclectic Whimsy: The Photography of Rodney Smith

“He can wear an ascot without appearing pretentious. He proclaims himself to be a closet optimist. He believes Modernism took a wrong turn at a wrong time. He thinks Freud saved his life. He graduated Yale. He lives in a wooded enclave in Snedens Landing, just close enough to Manhattan to meet an editor for lunch at a moments notice, but far enough away to mollify his distain for city living. He loves books. Paper. And printed matter. He wrestles with Big Ideas and references Wittgenstein and Plato as if he saw them just yesterday. He’s tweedy. Proud. Not loud. He’s a perfectionist. Workaholic.”

– Bio from Rodney Smith’s Website

Rodney Smith’s work is pure genius to me. Simple. Elegant. Whimsical. Fantastic. Film Only.

Rainy Monday

Winter Rains

Winter Rain

“A city of squalls, foggy mornings, intervals of blue and white so immaculate the eyes ached. A city of readers, coffee drinkers, kissers on sidewalks, sad faces at wet windows. A city of umbrellas, woolen scarves, raincoats, cigarettes, wineglasses, cognac.”
-Keith Miller, The Book of Flying

Stumbled upon the above evocative quote and print on the Etsy shop of Kristin Kemper this afternoon–lovely! Feeling the whimsical today, from heart-shaped raindrops to wellies-as-vases to wellies tartan courtesy of J.Crew.
