Recently, Danielle asked me to photograph her yarn shop, Fibre Space, in Old Town Alexandria. I was happy to. This is the second time photographing for Danielle, the first time being her wedding reception. Years before, we used to walk to the train together when we lead very different lives. We both worked in unsatisfying jobs and dreamed of breaking free of our windowless cubicles. I’ve watched Danielle transform her dream into a reality and I know how satisfying that can be. She’s a go-getter and helped facilitate the “Shop Local Old Town Alexandria”initiative. This Friday participating Old Town retailers will be offering up deals. Really really good deals. Like get yourself out of bed at the crack of dawn because these are serious deals. That, my dears, is what coffee is for.
More images of Fibre Space coming soon.
Also, don’t forget I have a little contest running over on Facebook. “Like” Modern Toile Photography and list your favorite indie love song for a chance to win a mix tape.
