10/52 "guide me home" on flickr

"I felt a tremendous distance between myself and everything real."
-Hunter S. Thompson

this one is not on flickr but you can see another portrait of Socks and i from a series here. :)

Untitled on flickr

this photo was actually from a failed concept and i initially didn't feel confident posting this up but somebody made me change my mind. it was just as well because i hate spending hours on a photo but end up not wanting to share it with everyone. it's not my best but i hope you'd  all like it anyway :)

just a back to basics, honest monochrome self-portrait, something that i've not done in so long.

catoptric tristesse
n. the sadness that you’ll never really know what other people think of you, whether good, bad or if at all—that although we reflect on each other with the sharpness of a mirror, the true picture of how we’re coming off somehow reaches us softened and distorted, as if each mirror was preoccupied with twisting around, desperately trying to look itself in the eye.
(from here)

11/52 "fate's design" on flickr

"Flower gleam and glow,
Let your power shine,
Make the clock reverse,
Bring back what once was mine.

Heal what has been hurt,
Change the fate's design,
Save what has been lost,
Bring back what once was mine."

i watched Tangled last night and i've always particularly loved the Healing Song :)
this photo is also inspired by Kiara Rose's work.

hi everyone! a little late but here are the photos from last week and also this week's 52 weeks project photo :)

the reason for this post being late is because i was simply too lazy to create any images last week after i had done the "guide me home" photo last monday. i felt a little out of my element and did not at all like feeling so lazy and making excuses to myself for not getting out and photographing. on friday, i finally pushed myself to go out to take some simple portraits of Socks and i.

then, i had an epiphany and finally understood fully this quote that i've written down in every one of my notebooks before;

"Inspiration exists but it has to find you working."
-Pablo Picasso

like tides, it comes and goes but is always there.
