this morning i dreamed of wild animals living in my back yard. there were all kinds. predator and prey were living in harmony. i was sitting at the window watching all of them. i was very happy.
then the dream (as usual) took an odd turn. in my house (of course this house was one i have never seen in real life) behind the futon was a young male lion. the futon had its back to the huge ceiling to floor window that i was looking out of and he was just lazily looking out of the window too.
we realized we should probably not be in the room with this lion (even though he was like our pet but we knew how unpredictable wild animals can be) so we tried to quietly sneak out. as we were shutting the door, he heard us and ran to the door. we were able to shut the door in time but now he could smell us and the dogs we have and he wanted out of the room.
the door had a big space under it and he could fit his paws and nose through. the whole family became scared that he would get out and try to eat us or our dogs and cats. frantically we hurried to put the cats and dogs in another room. naturally the dogs were going crazy and cherry (my poodle) managed to jump out of my arms. when she got to the door the lion was able to fit under the door bc he wanted her so bad. cherry ran very fast to me and then we were all trying to get the lion out the front door. lola (my other poodle) ran out the front door and the lion chased her.
luckily she was able to get away and the lion was sulking around the front yard looking for trouble just like the way mischievous cats can be. this is when i woke up.
i sure was happy looking at all my animals living peacefully in the backyard though. for the most part it wasnt like i was scared of the lion either. i just knew he was young and didnt understand and liked to play too rough sometimes. i just wanted to make sure everyone (including the lion) was ok.

my film on these photos got exposed or something right out of the package. two packs of it. :(
my professor actually likes my idea of photographing what is not there. so i suppose that is what my senior thesis is going to be on!

"I don't love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: I love you as one loves certain dark things, secretly, between the shadow, and the soul." -p.n.

i have been wanting to photograph exotics for a VERY long time. i kinda got to a little bit with last sememsters project. (see my flickr for the pics) but i really want to get into it. seeing as i cant just hop on a train to the sahara or jungle or anything, i would like to visit the zoo. the type of photos i have in mind are close/detail shots. especially of elphants, hippos, and other large delightful creatures. are they not completely facinating and dont we all need to be more aware?
SO does ANYONE know ANYBODY in with zoo? keepers, vets, directors, whatever! i know if i could just talk with someone, they would maybe let me. (a girl can dream!) i mean, how does one get into the zoo circle? they are so exclusive.
i think this is the lovely lady who made these up: http://bakerella.blogspot.com/
also, how is that i have not known about johnny cupcakes? this place looks like totally rad. look shana! its right by tarina tarantino, why didnt you tell me? http://www.johnnycupcakes.com/
i think this shirt would look nice on me. thanks johnny cupcakes. please send me one.

Make all forget that they're the moth
Edging in towards the flame
Burning to obscurity
Still and transfixed
The electric sheep are dreaming of your face
