It's finally starting to feel like fall. I'm loving wearing cozy sweaters and drinking hot tea. 
I unfortunately have found myself with a lack of time for taking new pictures. I'm hoping to start some new projects this week as well as finish editing some past photos. Also, I'm super excited that all of the pop-up Halloween stores are opening. I love looking at all of the fun costumes and makeup.

Weekend get away

My friend and I went to Austin, Texas over the weekend. We went to see Death in June play, but stayed all weekend since neither of us had ever visited the city before. The concert was amazing. 

Before the concert we went for a walk on congress avenue at the recommendation of my cousin. We ate some really great pizza, had a smoothie, and shopped around. We went in uncommon objects, which is one of my new favorite stores. There was so much creepy stuff, I wish I had more room in my car so I could have bought some stuff. 

My cousin was nice enough to give us her apartment for the weekend so we didn't have to worry about hotel expenses, which was amazing. I can't wait to go back for another visit.

Busy busy

I had intended to post some new things before I left town, but I wasn't happy with the shots so I'm reworking some of them. 
In other news, I got some lovely new shoes in the mail.

I spent my Saturday hanging out with my sister and her family. There was lots of sushi and sake and chasing the baby around. My sister and I also got new piercings. It was a pretty fun day. 

I have some new stuff to work on this week. I'm also going to an art show with my grandmother. And Friday I'm driving to Austin for a concert. I'm super excited for a mini vacation.

study of insomnia part 2

When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep... and you're never really awake.



*does anyone recognize the quote?

*i'm way more productive at night for some reason. it's something about the night that makes me feel more creative.

*the mask is from amazon and the slip/dress is from anthropologie

a study of insomnia

the sky is so tragically beautiful. A graveyard of stars.



*insomnia has been plaguing me lately. although it's given me lots of time to catch up on season 3 of walking dead, it's not conducive to working every day. i have lots of new ideas that i can't wait to start working on.

*in other news, i'm getting a new piercing (well, technically 2). it's my first dermal piercing, which makes me a little nervous, but my sister is going with me so it shouldn't be too bad.

*listen to what i'm listening to here

little games

happy wine and cheese wednesday.



*i'm working out some new ideas tonight. they might just stay in concept form unless i get some quality shots, but either way i should have them posted tomorrow or friday (i'm traveling for work tomorrow, so internet access might be limited). also, i am counting the days until my mini vacation :D i'm super excited to visit somewhere new and hopefully will get some great photos.

*yes, this is the song from the nokia commercial.

perhaps this is what it means to go mad: to be emptied and to be aware of the emptiness.



*my mom helped me take these yesterday. it was over cast which gave them a grainy, haunting look. i'm hoping to get one more round of underwater photos before the summer ends.

*i'm using a kodak easy share underwater camera. i bought it on amazon for 70$ and so far it's been a great underwater camera to start out with. it also takes video and can be used as a regular point and shoot as well.

the moon's love

the sun loved the moon
so much, he died every night
to let her breathe
