Inspired {Brandie Pahl}

In this big creative world I have met old souls that I have connected with right away.

Some women I have met in person, others I will only know through our emails and others I will only know through their writing.

There are women that have made their mark on my heart and they don’t even know me….or their influence.

Then there are women you are quite certain you would be fast friends with if your paths ever crossed and you could sit and talk for just a bit.

That is how I feel about my friend Brandi Pahl.

We have only had contact through each others blogs, emails and purchases from each others shops.

Brandie’s photography always catches my breath a bit and makes me slow down.

Her perspective is always original and unique.

Her art is soulful and unexpected.

{All of the photos above are from her post in October of 2010 Librarian Girl}

When I saw one of the last series that she did recently I knew I had to share her photography with you.

The theme was abandoned.

I can’t wait for you to know Brandie more too!

You can find Brandie’s work HERE and HERE and HERE.

Brandie, I feel so blessed to know you and to be inspired by your art!

    Such beautiful photos, Jeanne! I love it. I have found I hesitate to take pictures in public places or even out on the road (and marvel that you just hitch your big ol’ camera over your shoulder at a restaurant, even when the waitress seems very suspicious…) I think it’s inpsiring to see people who embrace beauty in the every day.

    Love this. Can’t wait to check out her stuff!!

    Amazing photography. I love the black and white abandoned series – though it does give me pause to think of such a beautiful space being wasted when there is very likely so much need for it.

    Such beautiful photography! Isn’t it sad what is happening to our old treasured buildings?
