My favorite photographer, Ryan Muirhead, dressed up as Kurt Cobain for Halloween.

“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?”. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…” ― Timothy Leary This is me. Feel free to share this post if it is you as well. x100s | VSCO

In everything I am doing lately, I am trying to stop and ask myself “why?” As I sat down and started cleaning up the flyaway hairs on this portrait of Makayla I asked myself why I was doing it. It’s not a product shot for some sort of beauty company. It’s not an exploration into line or minimalism. Her hair was just all over the place and the light was pretty and I wanted to take a picture of it. So here it is, things as they actually were. leica m9p | VSCO
