taking the good where i can get it at the moment.

though the past couple of weeks haven’t been as full on rubbish/stressful as previously, they still haven’t been easy. i feel like i’m being beaten and beaten and beaten by life and every time i try and get up, try to have some fight, i get knocked back down again worse than before. i am so incredibly thankful for the people that have shown me kindness in these hard times. it’s what keeps me going.and people say things get easier when you’re thirty/in your thirties? definitely not my experience, ha!

i have this thing with …reflections

self portrait reflection

i absolutely love seeing and taking photos of various reflections, especially when they’re really layered and almost look like multiple exposures. again – is this the collage artist in me, drawn to inexplicably layered visuals? no two photos are going to be the same and everyone has their own unique viewpoint. i guess that could be said of all photography though.

my fatigue this week has been ridiculously bad. sometimes i’ll have a short period where i’ll have a little burst of energy, but then i feel even more tired than before. no matter how much i rest physically (and try to, mentally) it doesn’t seem to help and over the week my body has gotten more and more lifeless. there’s been a few times where it physically hurts to even move my fingers let alone do any basic things. even just sitting up and typing this is tiring me out.

i have this thing with …peeling posters & surfaces

photography by

faded peeling posters

i really definitely do. can’t help but be drawn to them on so many levels. peeling posters, painted surfaces flaking away, fading signs? tick, tick, tick. i find it hard to put it into words the way i feel about these things and how i’m so inexplicably drawn.

over many years of humanity, people often muse how things faded and old are no longer beautiful, but i disagree with this. fading, ageing, getting marks and scars and lines are signs of character. of life lived. sometimes the peeling and fading of paint and posters can actually be what makes them beautiful.
