Refuge For The Imaginative

Thinker. Exister. Passionate creative. Individual.
Someone who will be somebody someday.
Currently, that someone a first year art student with a heavy dose of an acting background and ombre hair.
My blog is inspiration as filtered through my brain.
My musings, art, tea, Old Hollywood, quips, quotes, feminism, cats, literature, and the like is what you'll find around these parts.

Keep watching. That someday is a lofty word, but when it knocks, I'll be there to sweep opportunity off its feet.

“Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative ” -Oscar Wilde

[3/52] Yellow

Here is my take on the color yellow.

This picture is 7 pictures put together:
2 pictures for me. Since I was the one holding the remote for the camera shutter, I had to pose myself with the remote in each hand so I could use the ones with the open hand.
And 5 pictures for the sheets. I bought this twin flat sheet at a thrift store for $3 specifically for this photograph. It only covered so much space, so I had to position it on one side, flick it in the wind, then repeat on the other side. I then composited those “flicks” together into one big sheet of movement.

A lot of photographs were taken for this, but having my dad as a peanut gallery/watch dog/audience member, I managed to get what I needed and leave within an hour. Not to mention the entire day I waited for this perfect sunset light.

I hope you like this as much as I do.

Free is the bird without a cage.

More on this later (probably) but I feel I am internally crying and screaming and I just don’t want to be on this trip

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.

"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."

"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
