Abandoned Garden

Yesterday started out so shitty.

Nothing was going right.

But I wasn’t going to let it ruin the beautiful day.

A long walk.

A girl with her camera.


Stumbled upon a garden.

Dead and empty.

Too early in spring to be alive.

Yet beautiful.

Abandoned, empty, dead, but oh so beautiful.


Unconventional Models


Conventionally thought of as anorexic, ribs showing, photoshopped, plastic surgery on various features, etc.

Those models are what little girls see.

That is what they believe is the standard of beauty.

What actually is beauty?

It comes from loving yourself and realizing that looks are not everything.

Learning to love yourself in today’s culture is hard.

Not having the plastic-surgery perfect breasts, ribs showing, flat stomach, perfect ass…

It is easy to forget how fake that look is and all that matters is that we love ourselves.

Here are some of the natural beauties in my life.


Apparently Even Cinderella isn’t a Perfect Fairytale

It was a beautiful day outside for mid-February in Michigan.  It actually hit 60 degrees!

This photoshoot was different for me for several reasons:

  1. Instead of going by the river, Beaumont Tower, or the other typical places on the North side of campus, I headed further South.  I went to the train tracks.
  2. Normally, I have my camera on auto, but I decided to experiment today and play with the manual settings.

I was surprised by everything I found by the train tracks: train tracks and signs (duh), graffiti, cinderella’s slipper and other various things.

Apparently Cinderella either caught the train on the way home or got hit by the train trying to get to her car, but either way, it doesn’t look like a fairytale ending.

I hope you enjoy the new pictures and the rest are uploaded in the photography album 🙂
