Sunday

she said, she said, she said.



it’s june. new york city. the sun is ten times hotter beneath those reflecting metal buildings; atop those cracking sidewalks. the only breeze comes from bare open windows, their peeling sills sprinkled with dirt & overgrown spider plants.

you spend afternoons with your cat on a sun spotted mattress on the floor, covered in fading floral sheets, wearing nothing but your knickers. it’s too hot. you listen to lissy trullie’s six track ep on repeat, reciting every word offkey while you doodle in a pocket notebook.

you spend evenings on your flea market found bike, riding through traffic under the cooling sun in your favourite just bought but already dirty sophomore dress. you’re heading to duane reed to pick up prints, more disposable cameras, menthols & another tube of your favourite .99 red lipstick.

you spend nights barefoot, on lower east side rooftops decorated with twinkling string lights & your best friends. the air smells of smoke & charcoal. your first summer bbq. grilled tofu & eggplant. you watch the blazing sun disappear into the starry night & reappear, still awake, through heavy mascara smeared eyes; laughing with lipstick covered smiles into the haze, into another city morning.

Sounds like quite a day! You shouldn't really complain about the heat. I live in the south, and yesterday it was in the 90s at night, while in the daytime it pushed 100. It is miserable down here. But anyway, I love your photography, and blog. Keep up your amazing work.

your posts set a scene worthy of a Sophia Coppola film.
with dreamy shots and hazy imagery...

feel compelled to comment on one of your posts after about an hour of twitter/blog stalking and months and months of reading. every post i fall a little bit more in love with you and your whimsical life.
your writing is amazing, hope to see more of it in the future, and more of you- the new hair is stunning and every single photo of you goes into my inspiration notepad.
kisses,
elizabeth.

Seriously, I spent WAY too much time at Duane Reade everyday in NYC, usually at 4am in the morning coming home from something ridiculous.

That is too kind of you to add my photos in your collage. Thank you. :)

Love the mini story. You should do more of them.
