I dream you, and you come to me
intact, in focus, indiscreet, mouthing
the sweetest lies as if we cared.
As if, in fact, we might begin again
with needle-tracks and scratches down your arms
that might have told in drunken hieroglyphs
how heavy-shouldered I pick my way
through a night of empty forecourts,
back to the etceteras of passion:
the obligatory pathos of discarded shoes,
the glass of water juddering by the bed,
the face my heavenly eyes avoid.

Does anyone remember what life for the average (non art-dabbling/photography major) person was like before digital cameras?
Do you remember how sparingly we’d all have to take photos and you’d just hope and pray that it came out alright? And so many things could go wrong!
They if the negatives got cut or developed wrong you were just screwed.
And it was hard to make good copies for cheap because dang bro dat was expensive.
Heck, negatives… I probably destroyed a ton of negatives on accident as a kid taking them out and looking at them in sunlight. I DIDN’T KNOW BETTER OKAY
I remember my family’s first digital camera. It was really crappy by today’s standard but back then OMFG. We must’ve gotten it around 2000 or 2001? I was like “WHAT IS THIS MYSTICAL DEVICE IT’S THE WAY OF THE FUTURE and it was just so mystifying and amazing! We took so many shots of our Christmas that year and the photos were such great quality to us. It was just so magical to be able to take a picture then look at it RIGHT THEN and then just put it on the computer and e-mail it to everyone
I kind of miss being amazed by technology like that. It’s fun to think back on when the stuff we take for granted was new. Imagine how elderly people must feel!
from one of the better weekends i’ve had in a while. i definitely didn’t bring enough film.
Any film submissions will be reblogged. No questions asked. Beautiful!
Gosh, I’m homesick.
Beautiful! Omg I just wanna go here please. This is glorious!
These simultaneously breathtaking and nerve-wracking photos were taken Russian photographer Vadim Mahorov. He and his friends have a penchant for climbing to great heights and taking advantage of the singular perspective to create some pretty freaking awesome images.
