Photomeanings


I love pictures and to look through old ones gives you the greatest feeling. But to take the pictures yourself feels even more inspriring. I always daydream that someday I will be a famous photographer, but I don't know. I wonder what real photographers feel like when they put their photos out for the world to see. Because I know that when I look at a picture, it may give a meaning to me that no one else could think of. Or it might give someone else a different feeling. Could be a negative one. Or they might just not like the picture. So I think it's prettty brave for photographers to put their photos out there. Because photos are personal. Even if they're not of personal things.

Places where I would love to live

Monday, June 21, 2010

I dedicate this song to someone in the future...


Look at the stars,

Look how they shine for you,

And everything you do,

Yeah they were all yellow,


I came along

I wrote a song for you

And all the things you do

And it was called yellow


So then I took my turn

Oh what a thing to've done, 

And it was all yellow.


Your skin

Oh yeah your skin and bones

Turn into something beautiful

D'you know, you know I love you so

You know I love you so


I swam across

I jumped across for you

Oh what a thing to do, 

Cause you were all yellow


I drew a line

I drew a line for you

Oh what a thing to do,

And it was all yellow.


Your skin

Oh yeah your skin and bones

Turn into something beautiful

D'you know, for you I'd bleed myself dry,

For you I'd bleed myself dry.



Its true look how they shine for you

look how they shine for you

look how they shine for..


Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And all the things that you
do.

Floating

Yesterday morning, on the last day of school, I was sitting on the bus riding to school for the last time for 3 months, listening to "Yellow" by Coldplay. I have these headphones that block out the sound around you so all you can hear is the music, and as I was sitting there, I got this strange feeling. It was like everyone's mouths were moving and I couldn't hear anything but the music. And then I imagined myself floating over the bus so I couldn't feel anything, kind of like being numb. That's when I had this amazing thought:

"Maybe this is how God feels sometimes."

The Aqua Bridge


Bright red hair, green eyes, and yellow polka dotted fingernails as long as the tip of her finger. She was tall, not lanky. Freckles spotted her face. She had white teeth, all in perfect rows. Her eyelashes were long and black as the midnight sky. Her laugh was quiet and soft and smooth as waves. Her walk was graceful and she had wonderful posture. Her shirt had quotes written all over it in different colors. Her jeans were dark blue and had worn holes in the knees. Her Keds were a faded white and gray. She walked along the new bridge and sat down on her navy blue towel by the medium sized river. She pulled out her bucket of paint from inside her red backpack and a wide paintbrush followed. She got up and brought the bucket of paint over to the bridge and started to paint it a calm aqua. Ever since they built the new bridge it seemed bare to her. She hated looking at yellow wood. She felt it ruined the serenity of the river. She wanted to paint it. So she did. And she would live by that river her whole life if she could.

The Man and the Lion

The Man and the Lion
A man and a lion were discussing the relative strength of men and lions in general. The man considered that he and his fellows were stronger than lions by reason of their greater intelligence. "Come now with me," he cried, "and I will soon prove that I am right." So he took him into the public gardens and showed him a statue of Hercules overcoming the lion and tearing his mouth in two. "That is all very well," said the Lion, "but proves nothing, for it was a man who made the statue."

We can easily represent things as we wish them to be.

My 7 Wonders

My Seven Wonders that I've come across in my lifetime are:

  • Dancing to the point where you can't feel your soul and your body in the same place.
  • Secrets
  • How much a picture can make you remember.
  • My family
  • A song that has so much meaning to you, that you can't ever explain it anyone else.
  • Birds
  • Being alone up on a stage in an empty auditorium and letting your imagination run wild.

Sadness

Sadness comes and goes like waves.
Happiness is always there, just expresses itself at different points.
Sometimes sadness is stagnant, never moving.
And sometimes Happiness is the same way.

And sometimes, in the mix, you feel in between.
And that's the best feeling of all.
