Um, hi. This is kind of a weird post: a photo set with random, obnoxious explanations that I felt a strange need to include. I went out to the park a week or so ago with two friends, and we took a bunch of pix. There are lots more, but here are some nice, fall-ish ones with semi-distinct moods. Enjoy!
Staticky nature tv.
Cover of a murder mystery.
This one (above) reminds me of that scene in…I think it was the first episode of Twin Peaks, where the police are looking at kind of kitchy videos of Laura Palmer and her friend Donna at a picnic, outside. It’s really eerie, though, because Laura was just found dead, and she looks so HAPPY and innocent in these videos.
There’s something about this one that’s resolutely not-creepy. Maybe it’s the blurry-ness vs. the grainy-ness. Or maybe it’s the lighting. But this one seems to be more kids-playing-at-the-park-esque. And I like that.
I’ve never really done this kind of photography before, and it was super fun. We felt so, I dunno, exciting, I guess, telling each other to run around in circles or jump off a bench and then snap a bunch of frenzied pics. By the way, not all of these photos are taken by me! Some are taken by my fantastic friends, E and Z: both really awesome photographers. All photos taken with my trusty iPhone camera.
It just seemed to fit these photos really well. My mom and I tried out lots of different songs later, but Sophia seemed to be the best.
Some more calming, kind of bittersweet songs:
I discovered the site happy 2 b sad while reading a collection of book/zine reviews on Tavi Gevinson’s site for teenage girls, Rookie. The happy 2 b sad drawings are really interesting and a lot of times ring true. So yeah.
