my little horse must think it queer

Something I Wish I Could Still Do: Play With My Toy Horses

These photos are for my ABC Tag (from Michelle of Un Beret Noir)

The rules are:
1. If you are tagged, link to the person who tagged you.
2. If someone tagged you, start with the letter that comes after the one the person that tagged you ended with.
3. You have to do 1 letter, and if you like it, you can do a max of 3 letters before you pass the tag to someone else.
4. Tell the person you tagged that she/he has been tagged. Also link to that person.
5. Feel free to do what you want with this ABC, your letters are all yours!

I just did S. So I tag Madison of Urban Audrey for T.

stars that please the night

Part I
Sorry about being M.I.A.
I have had insane amounts of tests
and all of my inspiration and time goes
towards photography homework
and developing and printing.
The title of this post
comes from Eloise by Barry Ryan.
My dad told me to buy it because
apparently his sister used to play
it 24/7 when she was younger.
He decided it was
kind of a creepy song about a stalker
but now I keep listening to it.

One of my dad's friends in Spain sent me a copy of this spanish teen magazine and I found myself featured in their article Chic Connection. I'm not really from Canada as the feature claims but thanks Ragazza!

I think it says something like:

Do you fairy tales? If so, don't miss the blog of this Canadian. "There are many ways of viewing the world and this is mine." She demonstrates this with her posts of poems, songs, books, and looks to recall. We love her capacity to mix everyday clothing and convert it into a wardrobe befitting a romantic history. We love her exposure of stars and florals of every type. And all of her accesories, especially her vintage gloves.

Anyone who speaks better spanish want to translate?

hush of ovens, aeroplanes and of distan car horns. a pulse, your pulse.

The easy silence then was a sweet relief to this hush Of ovens, aeroplanes and of distant car horns. A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry. A pulse your pulse, it's the only thing I can remember I break you don't, I was always set to self destruct though. The fire the fire, it cracks and barks like primal music

My mum just got back from Holland with tartan tights for me, a huge flower hairclip, speculaas, a plastic figurine of Zwart Piet, pumpkin and gourd shaped chocolates. She also shared hazy pictures of the furniture she has purchased as well as an exciting shot of the Just Sold sign. I can't wait to see our new house (we sold our cottage and have purchased a new one.) If anyone has any good interior design inspiration sites please share!

I leave you with the Polaroid I took as a test shot for the B+W film roll I have to do on the theme of Doubles. I have some things planned with outlines,mirrors and twins...

Barack Hussein Obama

"I get it. I realize that I am not the likeliest candidate for this office. I don't fit the typical pedigree, and I haven't spent my career in the halls of Washington. But I stand before you tonight because all across America something is stirring. What the naysayers don't understand is that this election has never been about me; it's about you."

I am inspired.

freakshow circus

Halloween is such a great holiday! Strangers just giving you candy. I think thats nice that people still have a bit of trust. At school we did our annual parade. Us freshman dressed as ninjas and lurked around all day, and fough with plastic swords. Then after school my friends and I walked down to a cafe and encountered some odd boys. When night fell we started trick or treating, and got asked to be photographed by a German, ate lots of candy and encountered our hilarious bio teacher.

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
