White Winter Hymnal

Newer Older

Inspired by this song if that wasn't obvious.
This really didn't come out quite like I had pictured in my head. It just doesn't feel as tragic as I wanted it to.
I was going to do a three part series going along with parts of the song but basically it just turned into me goofing off and looking silly. Especially since I did this first and had red stains on my face from the fake blood in the other photos. For fun I'll put those on my Facebook (which I wouldn't be mad if you liked... just sayin')
Fun fact- a couple days before Valentines day I went to Walmart and among some other things bought this red scarf (which is actually a woman's scarf and has little sparkly threads, works for a photo though), a dozen roses for "The Rose", and some Valentine's cupcakes because I was feeling the need for some cake. All I could think about when checking out was how much it probably looked like I was buying a girl Valentines day presents, when really it was all for photography and the fact that I like any form of cake. Photography was my Valentine I guess...

    This is beautiful. In a kind of tragic way, of course.
    And I can't argue with your cupcake logic, cake is awesome. <3
