No, “Birdwell Custard” is not the name of a rock band,
though it should be. In 2005, I was making little Apple books
using iPhoto. I kept this one. From the preface:
Ed & Diane Birdwell were my insurance agents when I owned a home,
but by all appearances, they’re having more serious fun now. Check out
the caboodle of sculpted creatures climbing the walls of their custard shop!
As subjects for my lens, I love the audacious color and humorous style.
Talk about beauty for ashes... I’m told they began as old oil cans.
I see that these were shot on a FUJI Finepix, a sweet little camera
that rudely broke on me. I’ll bet their current cameras are pretty fine
as well, but I’m locked into Nikon now because I own some expensive
lenses. This was a long time ago. I don’t know what became of
Ed & Diane, but I’ll search online to see if I can find them.
