My friend, fellow printmaker, and photographer Amy Cave got some new gear and asked me to guinea pig for her. As a classic ham, I was more than happy to accommodate.

While I was in Copenhagen, I searched for the perfect pair of drop-crotch pants. My feet, unaccustomed to cobblestone streets, begged me to give up after hours of walking into countless stores, in which I would ask, "do you have any drop-crotch pants?" "Any what?" "You know, 'drop-crotch'" (here is where I gesture to make the general shape of the pants clear). I didn't find the perfect pair of drop-crotch pants, but I did get a lot of funny looks and these trousers with interesting pleating. I am a sucker for detail.
