Who is Lady J. Fingertips a.k.a The Photoetrist?

I am The Photoetrist a.k.a. Lady J. Fingertips.  I write poetry, get in front of and behind the camera, make observations, share art/videos/music/words, and generally promote the good I come across.  I am interested in sharing ideas and new concepts with people from all over the world.   Je parle francais.  Parlo un po’ di italiano.

  1. I found you by searching two of my favorite things: Mark Linkous and Dr. ROUS. I’d like to keep reading if you can provide me with the code. I don’t blog or I would reciprocate, but you can ask me anything or find me on facebook.

    Lovely influences – only Ted Hughes missing – and the odd film – I am a poet and try to remain so behind the camera. i produced a cloud photograph/poetry collection some years ago but it is sadly out of print or I would share it with you.
