Partners in Crime

Like this image?
So do I!
But it wasn't taken by me, it was taken by my best friend, Tom Adams.

We went to visit my amazing friend Binky this weekend,
and her incredible shop, Binky La Faye.

I have plans to do a big photo shoot at her shop soon,
but this weekends visit was all about shopping and visiting.

So back to Tom....
he actually has an impressive background in photography, 
but film photography, not digital.
He majored in it in college, but until just recently,
hadn't shot with a DSLR before, just old film cameras.

He blames thanks me for his resurgent interest in snapping pics,
and we've been toying with the idea of actually teaming up
to do shoots and projects in the future.

So the photo above?
A stack of yummy vintage pillows at Binky's shop,
photo taken by Tom, editing and post processing by me.

Recognize that handsome mug?
Yep, the infamous Mr. Twig himself, strikin' a pose.

Again, pic taken by Tomas, post processing by yours truly.

I think Tom has an amazing eye, and if one day this picture taking gig
takes off big-time for me....well, I would positively LOVE to
have a second shooter-partner in crime!

Heck, he's so good, that I think maybe I should be
HIS second shooter!

Just look at a few more of his great captures,
all taken with his brand new Nikon D3100,
and post processing done by me...

Good stuff, right?
If you think so too, please give Tom some words of praise
and encouragement right here in the comments.

He sometimes feels like odd man out in the digital age,
but I firmly believe that genuine talent transcends technology.

So...would you buy a Lorys-Adams coffee table book
of photos?

Then how 'bout an Adams-Lorys book, then?

Thought so.


Happy Memorial Day!

Oh what an eye he has to capture all these images! That is such a cool idea to partner up like that Anne, and I love the creative watermark too. I love the angle he shot your darlin' husband from, it's just like he's right there in the room with us! xoxo ~Lili

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Tom has a wonderful eye and you can't teach that! What a natural talent. PLEASE keep taking photos! You are that good! hugs, Linda

Binky said...

I will be the first in line for a coffee table book by either or both of you!!! WOW Tom those are great shots, I really like the rusty nail one. Wish I knew more about photography. Ron and I enjoyed seeing you two the other day. Thank you so much for all your kind words about the shop. You are such a dear sweet pretty girl. See you soon.

Vicki said...

First of all I am very excited that you have a close friend to share your love of photographer and to encourage you and inspire you. Tom, these are amazing images. You do have an eye for capturing the beauty and texture in the everyday, just like Anne. I really love these shots.

Unknown said...

Yep Tom definitely know how to take a good picture!!! How nice that you have a photography buddy now! I see big things in the future for you two :))

Happy Memorial Day ~

Susan said...

ok, well I always speak my mind so...first and foremost what the heck is wrong with film cameras? LOL Hubby has a canon Elon EOS and LOVES it, he has only bought one other lens for it, but he wants one that is about 10 inches long, a little pricey for us right now. He has had now training or classes of any kind and started late in life, but still gets amazing sunsets and animal and bird shots, he needs to get better with people.

I have the kodak easy share C340, and believe it or not that actually takes some beauties also.

Now the above photos:

The pillows I actually do not like.
The rest are great but the BEST are the Shells and the Bamboo!! I agree Tomas, you have a good eye :) Keep at it.

Anne, depending on the content, I would DEFINITELY buy a coffee table book by either /or both of you.

You know I love most of the photos(see the ps) you take of
old junk, nice antiques and vintage oddities, but I am a sucker for lanscapes and nature, animals etc.
I also love candid people shots, especially in Black and white or Sepia. you know, just normal everyday moments--good or bad. Nothing posed and not anything like weddings or parties unless they are totally off-the-cuff shots of not-normal wedding pics. Do you know what I mean? Some of the best photos I have seen in photography mag or Nat Geo are the ones, with a lone sad woman looking at something off in the distance, a child bent over to get a better look at a bug, a hawk at take-off!

Sorry to be rambling. I wish both of you much success!


PS...I would sooo buy an 8 x 10 print of that great pic of the pink roses in the old watering can.(if not to pricey) You should think about making prints and note cards/greetings an etsy shop

Susan EvelynAndRose said...

Amazing photos and gorgeous pillows in that first pic! You are both very talented.
So...guess what? You won my giveaway!
Send me your address when you have a chance. You can reply to this email/comment, or send an email to
Congrats Anne! I hope you enjoy everything.
- Susan

Thanks for helping me make my connections!
P.S. Tom is an amazing photographer with an artist's eye.

Already felt like
I "knew" Tom a bit,
from what you'd shared
about your friendship.
Not surprised that your
collaboration would
produce such great pics ~

I liked his portrait of
Mr. T!!!
