people, people, people… if you haven’t heard of gray malin it’s time that you do. his prints are insane and some of the most beautiful things i have ever seen. i may or may not dream of the day that i possibly could have one of his prints, but until that day i’ll just look online (over and over again). his prints are all of beautiful beaches and the way he captures the colors of umbrellas or even just the water is mind-blowing. so although summer may be winding down, which i hate to even admit, as cheesy as this sounds gray malin prints make me feel like it will always be summer. yes, i just said that, so it’s time for me to get back to watching the leftovers (so dark, but so good).
i have a tumblr and sometimes going through my dashboard becomes a highly selective process. i’ll like a photo, and save it for later knowing it’ll look better on my page at a different point in time. thoughts run through my head, like “i can’t reblog a photo of this outfit, because i did a fashion photo a minute earlier”, and so on and so forth. i get into this groove, and it makes me feel like an artistic genius, which is far from the truth. i am a creative person, and i wish i could do photography, but it’s something i haven’t tried (except for my instagram, which makes me feel like annie liebovitz at times, all thanks to filters). since i’m not a photographer, i’d like to consider myself to be a curator. when i say curator i mean i gather photos i love, and group them together all over my desktop waiting for a reason to use them. one of those times is now… i was on a black and white photograph kick recently and it got a little bit crazy for a while. as soon as february gets closer i know there will be another “gathering time.” to me it’s fun and even relaxing… there’s something about putting photos together that reminds me of solving a puzzle, certain ones fit and others don’t, but in the end you have to make it work. i’m totally making something that’s not a big deal into an artistic process, but as the saying goes, “imma do me.”
