Today on the drive back we stopped at a random exit for gas and there were three houses in a row that looked like this, each with a different theme. It was so bizarre.
Yesterday I worked from 8-3, and then got in my boyfriend’s car and drove 13 hours to Lexington. I didn’t have much chance for a picture so this was what I could manage.
My boyfriend and I joked about him proposing with brass knuckles, and yesterday he surprised me with this. Which is fake proposal number….6?
Chris, my boyfriend, had joked that he was going to propose to me through mail. He had also joked that he was going to give me a bunch of fake proposals before the real deal. So, he had mailed me an early Valentines day present that I opened today, and inside was this lovely plastic ring with a note that said “will you?”
Once again tonight, I didn’t take a picture before class, and then it was dark when I was out of class. I originally wanted to go do some star trails tonight, but it was getting late, and I hadn’t had dinner, and there was a full (and very bright) moon which made it difficult to see any stars. So I was asking Elliot what I should take a picture of, and he said “will you do a challenge?” I told him yes, so her grabbed a few items from my house, and we then headed to his apartment. Once we got to his apartment he grabbed a few more things and put them on his table, and told me that I had to use at least one of the objects on the table. I could shoot anywhere, and use any lighting and combination of objects that I wanted, but I had to use one of those objects on the table. And it also had to be in black and white. As soon as I saw the knife I knew I wanted to do something with it, and then my mind made the connection to the hat.
I know the “blood” doesn’t look realistic at all, but hey, it was somewhat rushed, and my first time faking blood.
It was definitely a fun process (the challenge part), I think I might make this a common thing. So, by all means, if you would like to challenge me with something, let me know!
