As we’re settling into the fall, I finally got some photos developed, both from my last two Springs.
I spent an afternoon with my friend Alex last spring making tacos and sitting on a Hyde Park porch in Chicago, on probably one of the only nice days of the year that year.
Focus less on the blurriness, and more on the fact that if you tilt your head to the right at about a 35 degree angle, Alex looks like he’s holding a tiny shrunken head. He pointed this out to me himself.
These two photos were the only ones on a roll I took on my dad’s Minolta 35mm camera, despite the fact that the lens didn’t exactly focus.
Perfect dishwashing form!
This late Spring (the end of May, to be exact) was spent down the Cape (Cape Cod, that is), for a pleasant week of New Englandry and beaching.
I know, you’re probably wondering “Where the hell have you been?” Probably not, actually. In any case, I promise I’ve been absent for a good cause. No, it has nothing to do with Chaucer. It has to do with my new photography class that I’ve been busy taking pictures for. Seriously, I’m starting to smell like photo chemicals and furthermore, all light, natural or otherwise, is offensive to my eyes.
Yes, babies. That would be me sitting on top of a kitchen sink looking especially like a Tarantino villainess. I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon playing with grapes and kitchen knives and sitting in places I probably shouldn’t be sitting in. Thank you so much to the talented Mr. Will Larsen for taking these.
“But where do you live mostly now?” “With the lost boys.” “Who are they?” “They are the children who fall out of their perambulators when the nurse is looking the other way. If they are not claimed in seven days they are sent far away to the Neverland to defray expanses. I’m captain.” “What fun it must be!” “Yes,” said cunning Peter, “but we are rather lonely. You see we have no female companionship.” “Are none of the others girls?” “Oh no; girls, you know, are much too clever to fall out of their prams.”
Yesterday was spent catching up with friends in New York City. I met Margaret in Union Square where we ate some brie sandwiches and an avocado salad from Pret (tasty snack place if you’re ever in Union Square). Then I met Emmett and we walked to Central Park where we watched Guido Sarducci youtube clips on his phone. Good day!
