what we talk about when we talk about love

For Utata Iron Photographer. Elements:

 

1. A favorite book. What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver. For one thing, it's short stories, and this is my preferred medium. For another thing, it's one of the most people-smart, tightly-written books I've ever read. I bet you'd doubt this if you've only ever read my somewhat verbose photo descriptions or blog, but this book and its delicious minimalism is one of the greatest influences on my own writing.

 

2. A favorite thing to eat or drink while reading. I don't usually eat while reading because I'm usually reading in bed right before I go to sleep, but even though you might have thought I'd pick Snickers or Pringles (healthy living: that's me) whole natural almonds are my favorites. I tend to eat a few here & there all day long. I also always have a glass of water handy at all times.

 

3. A favorite style of photography. This was tough. Do I have a style? I don't know. But I do know that I like bright lights and fast shutters. And shadows. And that lamp. I love that lamp.
