That's Alice Olive.
I've been a fan of Alice for a couple of years. I was amazed with her unique images of Chicago... a city I lived in for almost 20 years and had just left when I discovered her blog. I knew Alice's vision was unique because she saw something in what I walked by every day without a thought. She posts once a week. Usually on a Wednesday. Few words. That's it. But was it?
I clicked on her Flicker link and discovered another world. Funny, touching, intimate and shoes. Lots of shoes. It was like sitting with a friend and watching a slide show with their entire family. And not a bad photograph in the hundreds, if not thousands, I've seen.
As I studied Alice's photographs I was always impressed with her range. Portraits, cityscapes, still lifes, apparel, travel, food... not to mention cats. I'm not so crazy about the cat stuff but everything else is a joy. I've learned to jump start her Wednesday posting and check out her new additions on Flicker. It seemed odd at first. Checking out a stranger's photographs. But it wasn't long before I felt I knew her in some way. Connected by her look at the world. I would give my right arm for her eye.
