i have been seeing gemini for almost six months now, and i am absolutely surprised at how much patience we've had. we are starting to mirror each other, but i can't say i'm as strange as he is. at least not in the manner of a gemini would be lol. how have my fellow fish been feeling as of late? great i hope, many birthday celebrations to ensue!
however! i have sooo many favorite people in my life. but they vary by the days, hours, minutes, possibly even seconds being fickle as i am! i've seen a lot of people in my life come and go for some of the dumbest reason (one: introducing one another..silly bicker, etc) it seems oh so selfish, but i have to be extra careful these days. i don't think i can afford to lose the trust i've given already.
i was making an observation (which then became an observation of a specific sign) on friendships. and then i thought maybe i was the same way and i have my reasons which i will express.
it might sound a bit selfish, but i find that i keep my group of friends seperate. only because i think that joe would probably never get along with jane because of their obvious differences. joe might be a bit shy and introverted while jane is loud and beligerent. i'd get a different kick out of hanging with jane, and if i want someone to simply chill out with i'll call joe? so i may keep them in seperate groups just to keep my circle of friends in some kind of order. i've seen some of my friends become friends with each other, and a lot of times, it causes a rift between us bc often times someone stops talking to the other (sometimes that person can be me.. often aloof and all)
do you have seperate groups of friends, that you choose not to mix together for whatever reasons? are you ever cautious of bringing a potential mate around your friends? why?
lol spica! the quotes are from "through the looking glass" and "peter pan." linda goodman chose them for every chapter for each sun sign and pairing and i found that particular quote for the libra&libra relationship. i picked it way before i shot the photo, and i thought it was funny that it fit. i actually talked to the twins just yesterday and they loved it. i love libras for the life of me, and i happen to think of them as sillies but of course in a good way! thank you for looking!
my only concerns are people misusing and abusing the photos. i don't think anything anyone could say (whether good or bad) would change my views on this project. i stand firmly on what i create. viva is right- it is really hard to share things that you've worked hard on for people so openly. but it was made to be seen, and this is my point. the people in the project are dear to me and i'm not very familar with the people who lurk around this message board, therefore- may just do what viva said they would. you can question my character all you want, but this is the internet. so who cares! (oh my bad, you do obviously)
but thank you all for your comments! both good and bad. i take them all the same! xo
claro! thank you a lot! i really wanted to show how much character each individual sign had, whether it be a flaw or not, that it should be embraced. i have linda goodman to thank for that.. her books are pretty much the reason why i created this project. she shows so much positive beauty in her writing. i tried to make sure that each quote and description i picked, would be portrayed through the photograph as well.
you should pick up "love signs" or "sun signs" if you haven't already!
thank you for your words viva! yes, i definitely pride myself in not having any former training, but that can also be a downfall. i started off with an auto canon and then moved on to an analog nikon, and then a minolta as well as a pentax. i'm an absolute 35mm film junkie, and i love love love grain. i pretty much got them developed and scanned at a photolab (thats why some of them are crappy scans) because i haven't taught myself how to develop my own film yet.. which i will eventually. but i don't think i'll really get into digital with my work. i'll end up getting one just because but not for work.
i got my sister into it too. i concentrate more on the portrayal of dreams, thoughts and ideas of people, places and things. she does a good job at focusing on objects (shes the cappy in the project series, go figure!) she's working with an auto, and would like to eventually go into digital. we both rely on natural sunlight so its tough sometimes. but we're always up for a challenge.
i plan on turning it into a little coffee table book for the eleven people that contributed and maybe eventually sell if there are requests.
viva, thank you! i used royal for the big letters. i'm not really into design, so this was my first using photoshop. i'm not trained in photography either.. i've just been doing it as a hobby all of my life. a little bit over a year ago, i decided to take on strictly analog film photography.
i dont find it very naive at all. i take all kinds of praise as well as criticism. just because someone appreciates my art doesn't mean they would necessarily like it. buddy who replied on second post made me realize that people would say immature things such as "where are the nudes."
i'm not looking for that kind of attention. but thanks for your opinion.
i mentioned this project that i wanted to do many months ago, and never got around to talking about it again.. but now i am finished! its soooooooooo late right now, and i'm too brain dead to share the concept of this project, but i'm sure you all will get the idea. i won't be getting around to the other boards, so i'll just post here first. if you have any comments/questions please feel free to share! i really hope you all enjoy it just as much as i did taking them.
hi pd! i just wanted to update you in on my department. surprisingly, gem was interested and we have been seeing each other for a bit. everything is going gradually slow and we are starting off as friends first and see where it all takes us from here. he is the oldest person i've ever talked to and probably one of the most successful people i know and for some reason, it doesn't scare me. i'm not at all intimidated because i know that he is a real person underneath it all. its sweet actually. much better than the situation i was in before when the guy i was last seeing couldn't be up front with me at all.
