This particular Sally Ann looked like it'd been hit by a hurricane... stuff was piled up everywhere..... there was NO method to the madness, I was surprised how calm and collected the employees were... Good times.
Found at a church bizarre in the country for $1.
I love anything+everything 'owl'. They are unusually symetrical looking birds aren't they?... owl was my 2nd word ever spoken- cause I had a stuffed animal/owl named Owl (genius) that never left my side... my 1st word spoken was moon (quite the coincidence)... my parents are hippies which is why these words were considered meaningful...
I generally dislike this kind of photographic style- planned, manipulated, shiny, fantasy aesthetic...but I enjoy these unique and beautiful images... mostly because of the model-who looks like my idea of a nomadic child-molester from the southern states. You know that feeling when you wake up from a weird dream and cant decide whether it was a good or bad dream...thats how these photos make me feel.
I often think about the internet, how crazily bizaar and magnificant it can be, how dependent much of the world has become on it... how incredibly fast we've latched onto the new social, wireless, networks and integrated them so intuitively into our lives... it's all quite overwhelming for my small brain but Clay Shirky definitely makes things a little more clear...
what do you think?
