shut up its windows and drawn shades in an old maidenly preoccupation with self protection which bordered on mechanical paranoia




"The gentle sprinkler rain filled the garden with falling light.

Until this day, how well the house had kept its peace. How carefully it had inquired, 'Who goes there? What's the password?" and, getting no answer from the onely foxes and whining cats, it had shut up its windows and drawn shades in an old-maidenly preoccupation with self-protection which bordered on a mechanical paranoia.

It quivered at each sound, the house did. If a sparrow brushed a window, the shade snapped up. The bird, startled, flew off! No, not even a bird must touch the house!" from
There Will Come Soft Rains.One of my favourite short stories.

i love your photos, they are so atmospheric, your clothes are gorgeous too. I also love the way that you have poems and pieces of writing on your blog, along with fashion and photography - it makes it different, i like it.

Beautiful :) You look so lovely in white!

Urban Audrey said...

Hey Ana,
I love the soft whiteness of these photos.

If you're thinking of getting a digital SLR, I would recommend a Nikon D80 or a Canon Digital Rebel Xti. I have a Nikon D40, but it doesn't have a depth of field preview which is a bitch, but D80s and higher have the depth of field preview.

Hope I helped, but I think your pictures look absolutely lovely now anyway.
