Graveyard

4:47 AM

I've been meaning to use the graveyard for a photoshoot, but I wanted to do it with Margarita and she was a bit busy, and besides that, I actually thought that they would give me a hard time to shoot there. Well, Margarita was free, and the graveyard man gave me permission to shoot, so I did. :)
It was really hot today, so me and Margarita were literally toasting under the heavy sun - wich is worse for us since we both have sensitive milky white completion. But we handled it - we're troopers! ahaha

Oh, by the way, I gave an interview for Ben Trovato. It seems to be a big deal, since I've had people sending me emails congratulating me for the feature - and to think I kept postponing it. ahahaIt's a small interview (just 3 questions).

You can read it HERE.

Here are today's pictures:

  22. Hello! I've discovered your blog today via Frankie website. You make good photos, you use light very well. So I browsed a bit on this blog and I really liked the way you shoot photos, until I came upon this post. Why would someone like to present a graveyard as something "romantic" or "beautiful" and even lay down on a grave like a dead person? I would really like to know what was your aim with it. I know this doesn't sound flattering like all those comments above, but have in mind that I'm benevolent.

  23. Hello, Isidora. :)

    There's no harm in questioning, actually I like it that you did. However, I believe that explaining why I shoot the way I do (and what, in this case) defeats the purpose of the picture itself.
    With that said, I can tell you that I really like graveyards, both because of their mystical nature (I've always been attracted to witchcraft and the spiritual world) and also because even though it brings this natural state of melancholy and respect, it's just so peaceful. I believe that death can be a beautiful thing as well! Can you imagine how many lives just lay there? So many beautiful stories to be told, I imagine. Why can't it be romantic? Missing someone is romantic, feeling empty inside, grieving a loved one, feeling nostalgic... F. Scott Fitzgerald said: “I’m not sentimental — I’m as romantic as you are. The idea, you know, is that the sentimental person thinks things will last — the romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won’t.”
    It's a matter of perspective, I guess. :)

  24. Thank you, Teresa, for answering. Yes, it's a matter of perspective, or, better to say, ideology and world view. I guess every living being has a desire to live. If someone put your head under water, you would instincitevly fight for air because you want to breathe/live. I hope you will think over the issue in your solitude.
