For all the fashion forward out there, you may have already spied Reese Witherspoon’s in this month’s Vogue, but for us homesteading pioneers here in Vienna, we get our mail with some delay so I was delighted to find Reese’s shoot inspired by Like Water for Elephants.
I’m pretty excited for this movie to make it here – it had been one of my favorite book club reads in the past years. And yes, it made me cry. Anything with older people feeling lost in today’s society makes me cry. Frankly, much to diplo-husband’s dismay, even something as simple as an older person taking a bit longer to cross the street makes me cry. I just know that the day when the world will spin faster than I can keep up with will come sooner than I think. It did for my grandmother – she often tells me she’s always surprised when she looks in the mirror since she still expects to see someone in her 30’s, not her 80’s.
But when I’m in my 80’s, hopefully I can remember the adventures of my 30’s with as much color and vividness as these shots. Also, given Reese’s proximity to the animals here, it looks like it was shot at someplace that enforces the rigor of the Budapest zoo.
