September: I start to lose count of the days and weeks. It's that month which marks the beginning of the end, the first -ber month. My holidays, if I can call it that, began a week ago, and I have slept like a Disney princess, waking only when the sun is so high that my face begins to burn from the sunlight through my windows.
Traditionally, during September holidays, I like to be spontaneous and lazy like the weather, but what I need this year is routine before I dream away another week. I get nervous when I talk about time in large increments, so I have been thinking about it in terms of hours, sort of less overwhelming. So, about 164 hours ago, I loaded some 35mm film into my Holga (not cause I'm arty, just cause I'm poor) and went for a walk with Alana and her rabid dog.
It was beastly hot and taunted me to shave my legs.
I apologise now for the blossom photos overkill. (it's spring, I'm female)
The light leak right across her mouth is very Joker.
We saw this mammoth tree of blossoms and bees.
I think Alana took this one. My face was meant to be double exposed in their somewhere...
I picked some branches from that tree for my bathroom.
The next day we had brunch somewhere. Alana is reading her new book of poems by some guy. I need to stop with the gratuitous double exposing. I somehow think I get more value out of a roll of film if I multiexpose every frame, but as a result I seem to have ruined quite a number of shots.
I'm not sure how many days later this is. Here is Jayne beneath the train station. I'm hoping to go back some time and try to take a shot that's actually in focus.
It was 4pm by then and I hadn't eaten anything since the night before (this week I have been skipping a lot of meals by accident - I just seem to forget to eat). I fixed my starvation with this gigantic bowl of pho, possibly the most satisfying meal I have ever eaten.
Some holes in buildings under construction.
The cherry tree in my frontyard which has finally remembered to blossom. This may sound silly, but I was so relieved.
That's about it for now. I am feeling quite lonely. It seems as though everyone has disappeared, or do you miss me too?
