In 2004, I took this photo for extra credit in art class. My intent (then) was focussed on this young girl, mourning the loss of parents.
10 years later, I found this photo in a box. Of course, my instinct was to roll my eyes at my past teenage angst. After that reaction, I kinda just stared at it. Something was off.
Upon reviewing the photograph, my eyes were drawn to the dates on the joined headstone. This couple died 9 days apart from each other. Nine days isn’t enough to mourn. It’s as if they promised they would be together always.
Call me sentimental, but I hope someday I will find my til’ death partner.
Barbie is the ideal woman. She can do it all. She is a doctor, a baker, a vet, a mother and super gorgeous to boot. If I could ask Barbie one thing, I would ask her “How do you do it?” which would be followed by her gasping for air and doubling over from her less-than-realistic body proportions.
These photos were taken indoors with a sheet as the backdrop and a mirror as a prop. I used a dramatic filter that exaggerates shadows. The purpose theme is campy but somehow turned creepy.
Have you ever had a secret that you just wanted to scream out? You just want to confess to someone-anyone, a random person on the street that wouldn’t have any idea what you are talking about…
Secrets are like shadows. They engulf the day into night only to have the sun rise again to procure more shadows. All I want is a flashlight right now. Something to scope out and peer into the shadow that is keeping me from the light.
I wish you all have a happy day. If you need me, I’ll be looking for that flashlight.
