“The page is long, blank, and full of truth. When I am through with it, it shall probably be long, full, and empty with words.”
Jack Kerouac has the words when I don’t. My brain is basically a collection of quotes from his works. There are few others that touch my soul or can express what I feel quite like he does. This morning I woke up with them racing through my mind.
High Point City Lake Park in Jamestown,NC is one of my favorite places to shoot. I’ve used it often because is has so many varied areas. On this specific day I met and shot with Typeaura Photography And Design Studio.
“I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till I drop. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.”
This was a beautiful day! I had a blast with the photographer and his wife who was acting as assistant! The images so easily capture that summer afternoon type feel. Perfect scenery,calm surroundings….
“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.”
The clothes worn in this shoot were picked up at Carolina Thrift. I paid $1 for this dress and I still wear it! I hear complaints all the time from ladies about not being able to afford clothes for modeling.
Seriously…second hand shops are your best friend! I don’t pay attention to sizes. If it’s cheap and I want it for a shoot I grab it. I have purchased many an XXS dress for materials and XL dresses to wear. I just pin it or clip it in the back.
“I realized these were all the snapshots which our children would look at someday with wonder, thinking their parents had lived smooth, well-ordered lives and got up in the morning to walk proudly on the sidewalks of life, never dreaming the raggedy madness and riot of our actual lives, our actual night, the hell of it, the senseless emptiness.”
This was an easy day of modeling. Good company,great views….leaning against trees…hanging out in water! I couldn’t really ask for more!
“Listen closely… the eternal hush of silence goes on and on throughout all this, and has been going on, and will go on and on. This is because the world is nothing but a dream and is just thought of and the everlasting eternity pays no attention to it.”
