the grand finale {a mini-shoot}



song by (the one, the lonely) set it off
yes, "the one, the lonely" is a sio lyric reference most of you (probably none of you) understand.
soz.
i just felt the need to include it.

~






while finding shelter for the end,
they begin reflecting on everything,
i mean everything,
of the life they spent till then.
as smoke and ash fall from the sky,
so surreal they hold on to anything,
i mean anything,
hoping life won't pass them by.
non-existing answers,
we are now condemned
my friend,


this is the end.

~

mhm, this song is about the end of the world.

mhm, em and jules were experiencing "the end" during the shoot.
(not really, believe me, we're all still alive and well here)

mhm, i used only a snippet of the song.

mhm, i like it.

~

i just wanted to say that even though i don't always comment, i always read your posts, guys. :) i'm just busy (read: lazy) and don't always have time.

until next time...

  2. EXCELLENT use of black and white! People (like me) can't seem to manage the contrast.
    The contrast is what makes black and white photos so great. They look kind of silly when it's all the same shade of gray.
    It was probably the dark shirts that did it. Or the simple background? Or maybe it was your lamp making cool shadows? Never mind. I don't know. Whatever it is, you did good.

    1. thank you, gwen! :) yeah, i've really been working on black and white/contrast, so i'm glad you like it. yeah, when there isn't much color depth to them they get a bit bland.
      hehe, thanks. :)

    These photos are absolutely incredible, and I agree with Jana--you have so much talent, Maddie! ^_^

    2. I know, but I wasn't sure if something in you had snapped from the previous incidents and you calling it off. xD
      Magmadi. I love it. xD
      You tell me I'm queen, but let's all be honest. The real queen here is Em.

  15. Very moving. The use of black and white for the photos accentuates the starkness of the lyric.
