a new world

"I had forgotten the world could be so lovely, I had become so accustomed to living within myself" - Hesse


this picture is for the wonderful Mike Bailey-Gates, whose photography is so beautiful it makes me want to cry.


Tomorrow I am flying back to England again. I was supposed to leave yesterday, but my flight was cancelled because of the snow. I am not coming back to the US for a while, I need to be at home with my family, especially my mum who has been very ill.


This picture was accomplished thanks for a super fun team - Tara (model), Adrian (her brother), Buffy (wonderful internet-turned-real-life friend thanks to flickr) and Ed, who lent me his 24-70mm lens. I had them all holding big balls of fluffy pillow batting over their faces and walking round the room in circles orbiting Tara like a solar system while I took pictures! it looked so funny, you had to be there :P


See you all in the UK! Byeee :)
