I've never really taken pictures of Liz-probably because we don't see that much of each other, now that we live 300 odd miles apart most of the year. I popped by her home the other day to say goodbye {she's moving to Indianapolis for six months for a co-op}, and we stopped by a pond to snap these pictures.  While I was wary at first with her wardrobe choice of tie dye, I have no complaints now-the vivid colors worked so well! I have a bunch of other nice shots, but they are vertically oriented, so you can take a peek here on flickr, if you'd like....

april-may 2014//amherst ma//ks 1000 with iso 800 expired film

 A peek into this spring, from mid April to when I left school in the first week of May-trips into town, relaxing on the hill, and other little quiet moments from here and there. When my pentax bit the dust in December, I switched over to another one of my grandfather's film cameras, and while I was wary at first, I've found myself pleasantly surprised its versatility and depth of field-I'm excited to fool around with it some more.

Visiting Wiesloch opened my eyes to what a typical German town was like. Kay and I rode our bikes through meadows and patches of forest {5 km went by in a flash} to the center; she stopped to show me the horse stable she rode at, and her school, which she rode her bike to everyday. We visited the town center, which was so...adorable, a mixture of quaint red roofs and more modern buildings, apartment buildings and stores that catered to your every need. Wandering through the center, darting in and out of shops, I started to fall in love with this community based way of life-and with Germany itself, of course.

I only get to see Alysha every six months or so, so each adventure we have is precious. she's a kindred soul who's been in my life since i was six years old, and has taught me an awful lot. {She just started her own blog too-check it out!} Funnily enough, I never really miss her when she's away- I know that i'll see her again awfully soon, whether it's tomorrow, next week, or thanksgiving-and we can just pick up where we left off.

May 12 2014//Boston, MA//Canon 5d with 50mm

I visited Boston recently to meet up with some of my friends from art school-and promptly dragged them out to one of my favorite local parks, known as the Fens. There's a community garden there-adorably ramshackle plots of land, separated by fences and rotten wooden gates {post coming soon!}. The flowers and trees in bloom had me grabbing the three of them-Liz is the redhead, Shannon's the brunette, and Nicole's blonde-and sticking them under trees and flower bushes all over the place. The result? A beautiful set of photographs of a trio of beautiful girls.

may 3//abandoned home, amherst, ma//canon 5d 50mm

Growing up, almost all of our family trips included a pit stop to an abandoned structure, so my mom could take pictures. At the time, I was never allowed inside-however, now that I've grown older and venture out to places without my parents, I've become a little braver, and have a habit of climbing inside broken windows and tiptoeing through silent hallways. My favorite abandoned buildings so far? A farmhouse in Tuscany, mental institution close to home, and a train in New Hampshire.

I've been dying to check out this building, which is right off campus, for a couple of weeks now, and so recently, my friend E and I took a very spontaneous trip inside. What I found surprised me-I'm not sure if it was originally a house, for administration, or some sort of academic building-but it was full of interesting bits and bobs, old sneakers and magazines and computers scattered about. I was also really surprised by the amount of natural light streaming in, which I've found fairly rare in abandoned structures, but made it easy to photograph. 

have you explored any abandoned buildings?


thoughts//end of first semester.

May 3

I'm not going to lie; this semester was hard. Starting over always is-but I'm so, so glad that I took the leap and started fresh. These last few weeks have been amazing, full of new friends and adventures, and leaving to go home was bittersweet-but next year will be here soon, and I can't wait.

and i'll never go home, again
