Love lives here and now

The weekend is almost upon us! I would like to present a few interesting links that you can distract yourself with 'til it gets here:

Have you ever seen fireflies in a jar?

Angular, beautiful jewellery

Friday Film Fav: Tomojiro


Wow, it's been a while since my last FFF post. These photos were taken by Tomojiro, who describes herself as "a Japanese woman who loves cameras". Her photos have a peaceful, thoughtful quality and she shoots with a lovely range of different film cameras (so envious!).

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Flying not falling

Natsumi, the creator of the Yowayowa Camera Woman Diary, takes photos of herself in many different settings, with one constant - she's always in mid-air. Unlike most levitation self-portraits, her photos don't create the illusion that she is floating, but instead capture a sense of motion.

There's something about these photos that makes them look like stills from a film and they remind me of the Japanese animated movie The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I love her creativity and admire her willingness to do what it takes to get the shot she wants.

May days in Seoul #3: Seoraeseom


Pretty flower-lined path

Seoraeseom (서래섬), a mini-island found along the Han river, had fields full of yellow rape flowers in full bloom when we were there in May. We chose a really grey, overcast day to visit, which might explain why all the photos are underexposed, but the flowers were so bright and cheery that the weather didn't matter. For some strange reason, there were also white statue-people and random mascot characters who wandered along the dirt paths, giving visitors heart attacks (statue-people) and posing for photographs (both).

Illustrated stories

In 2010, Anne Ulku and Van Horgen created & illustrated a six word story each day, inspired by Ernest Hemmingway. This year, they started Six Word Story Every Day, and invited creatives to contribute their own illustrated stories.

It was so hard to pick just six, because there's so much good stuff there. I love how the transformation from text to image adds yet another layer of meaning to these pithy phrases.

Anyone can send them a story, so if you're feeling artsy, why not have a go at creating one!

May days in Seoul #2: Myeongdong

Cream cheese waffle

Little yellow beetle

Kimchi fried rice

프리 허그
Canon AE-1, Fuji Superia 400

It's these little things that make Myeongdong endearing, despite its crazy crowds and duplicate cosmetic shops. (The fact that I love shopping doesn't hurt either.)

Happy Monday, friends!
