this series of double exposed photographs is a rendition to one of my favorite films of all time- tim burton's marvelous adaptation of daniel wallace's novel "big fish." i was rummaging through my unshared film archives and realized i haven't touched this project since early january. with all of the subjects being so hard to get a hold of, it would be almost impossible to continue with it. so i figured i should just share it just as it is.

"now which one's it gonna be? monkey in the barn? or dog in the road?"

"they say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that's true. what they don't tell you is that when it starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up."

"it was that night i discovered that most things you consider evil or wicked are simply lonely, and lacking in the social niceties."

"her favorite flower.. is daffodils."

"i need twice the man, 'cause baby, i've got twice the love to give."

"a man tells his stories so many times that he becomes the stories. they live on after him, and in that way he becomes immortal."

the beautiful thing about vintage finds to me are the stories that they leave behind. denise found these bruno magli gems in a pretty little row of vintage shoes at ahab bowen. she also found out that they were purchased from the daughter of a flight attendant- who wore these shoes on the job. these shoes have been all over the place! i knew instantly that i had to grab them for her. after wards, we went back to the condo, threw on her mother-in-law's old dress from the 50s and took these pictures at sunset. gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

everytime i vacation in another city, thrift stores is always a must. ahab bowen (named after the farmer who lived in this historical building) in uptown dallas is probably the most impressive one i've been to. the vintage collection is absolutely immaculate. not only do they make items easy to find and price them reasonably, but they clean, press and steam everything there. sadly, they will be closing the store at the end of july and moving down to an antique mall.

its been forever i know, but i had to put my creativity on hold because quite frankly.. i sort of lost it over the past few months. i went to dallas last weekend in hopes of finding inspiration with a camera in hand.. and i did. i'm a little rusty but nothing practice can't fix :)

hopefully there will be more photographs soon once again.

you speak your fears, thinking in circles and checking what mirrors don't see. you live your life like a page from the book of my fantasy.

if you really knew me, you'd know that i am constantly evolving into a new person. i am always in need of change. so this is my march mix, songs that are a current collective of me. take a listen, you'll get the idea. this weekend was extra special because i turned twenty four on sunday. i had a birthday picnic in the park on possibly the most beautiful day i think we've seen in weeks with a few people i hold dear to my heart. it was very low key and relaxed, just as i expected.

i was asked by omar ferrer to do some photos for his band, jack of hearts. i was really excited after discussing and sharing ideas because our visions and inspirations were pretty much on the same wavelength. last week, theary and i spent the entire day with them photographing in inman park and at a mansion belonging to the candler family. these are just a few out of 200+ images we captured. well dressed and beautiful people in a grandeur setting.. need i express any more on how easy they made this day for us? and those little acoustic sessions that they squeezed in between shots didn't hurt either.

they are playing the merge at the soundtable this thursday with clan destined. i think you should definitely come.

i have been so bad with keeping up with updates on this blog. i'm currently trying to figure out a way to change the way i do things on kneeseespieces. i'll have more updates from last weeks photo session my sister and i did with local band, jack of hearts tomorrow.

the month of march is always always hectic.
