these clouds above me.

Newer Older

inspired by the thousands of images/poems/life stories dedicated to the rain clouds over our heads.

today anastasia hired me for a little conceptual shoot. i love that people are starting to hire me for my ideas and not just boring portraits (although those can be fun too, i like it more when i get to be creative). anyway, i decided to put her to use for my first series that contains more than one image, yay!!!! and if you couldnt guess, the series will be using rose petals.

ive been thinking a lot lately about how ive definitely had my fair share of rough times - my fair share or thunder clouds following me around. i went through a period of depression when i was younger, but if i have learned anything, its to have a positive outlook. my life is basically the same as it always was, but i am honestly happy.

thats what these rose petals mean to me. life through rose tinted shades, you know? im not ignorant, and im not naive, but i can be happy when perhaps the times around me are not.

ill be posting more of anastasia on my blog. she is truly beautiful.

    Your description is fitting! It really helps me to fully understand the piece through your eyes- and although people occasionally say it's the viewer's interp that matters, I think knowing how the photographer lives/feels/breathes is key to feeling comfort within their work. This is an excellent piece :)

    wow this is absolutely incredible! it's so wintery and your idea is really imaginative. also it's great that you've been able to find happiness in your life, which it seems so many other people cannot do.
    and lmao @ the tags, it looks horridly freezing out and she seems to have never been better.
