Faded from the winter. by raemarshall Faded from the winter. by raemarshall
it only snows once in a blue moon here.
Christmas Day


"daddy's ghost behind you
sleeping dog beside you
you're a poem of mystery
you're the prayer inside me

spoken words like moonlight
you're the voice that i like

needlework & seedlings
in the way you're walking
to me from the timbers
faded from the winter."

- Iron and Wine


self portrait


It was cold yes... but I was concentrating on getting a good shot and I went fast hehe.



more information on this, blog post!

This looks very cold. Good thing you did it quickly! But still very elegant, and it looks like the model is sleeping on a cloud. :D

The shot is gorgeous, the colour scheme looks really great, though I can't help but feel bad for the model; the things we do for art...!
