I like to clean. I like to paint. I like to play guitar. I like to exercise. I like to draw, listen to music, write poetry, sing, etc... It is unusual for me not to get in certain moods that make me want to do these different things. Moods that make me want to cuddle up in my bed, watch a really cheesy movie, and eat chocolate, to moods that make me want to go out and catch a rabbit or start a band. This past weekend, I experienced one of my many moods. My friend, Jo, my apartment-mate, Gabi, and I took a little drive this past Saturday afternoon just outside the city. On the way back, as we were driving on the highway on an overpass, I looked down and saw this old brick building that was right behind a few new fancy apartments.
I wish I could have looked closer to see where exactly it was and see what a building like that was doing still standing, but we needed to get back. When we returned, I found myself wanting to do something I haven't done in quite a while. I wanted desperately to take pictures. I wanted to tell stories with these pictures. It didn't matter where, as long as I had something fun to take pictures of.
Jo and Gabi were extremely gracious in letting me tell them where, when, and how the pictures would be taken... of them. Yes, they let me drag them down the road to a beautiful place where I go sometimes to sit, think and just be... and now take pictures.
When I have these moods, they usually stay for about an hour or two and then they disappear. So we got ready fast. On our way out, I picked up a camera from my friend and we were done in an hour and a half. The timing was perfect. The pictures? Well, I was a bit shaky and nervous, but I think they turned out alright. I am so thankful to have friends like Jo, Gabi, and Kelly (whose camera I borrowed) because without them, I would not have been able to settle this particular mood.
You girls are beautiful inside and out. Thank you for letting me share your beauty :)
