Two focuses of a broken mirror. Tallahassee, Florida. Early October 2012. Black & White. Canon AE-1.
Lindsay’s neighbor had moved out in a whirlwind. She mentioned something about the girl being in the parking lot without pants on and yelling. The girl flung her mirror at the dumpster, not caring that she missed and that it lay there broken, condemning her to seven years of bad luck. She’d been in Oregon. Minds can change on the opposite coast, I’ve found. I have to admire the sheer nihilism in it all, the disregard for the cruelty of the fates. How delicate the reflected self is, as fragile as the surface of a mirror.
Red lights and gardenia. Lindsay’s Apartment. Tallahassee, FL. April 2012. Nikon 35 MM.
Liz had these red lights strung around another light affixed to the wall over her dining table. On the table was a small vase of gardenias. I love the beautiful simplicity of it. Lights and gardenias to please two senses.
Lindsay’s birthday dinner. Lindsay’s Apartment. Tallahassee, FL. April 2012. Nikon 35 MM.
It was Lindsay’s birthday, and she was making enchiladas and guava bars at her friend and neighbor Liz’s apartment, also in Penwood. Lindsay took control and started cooking in a frenzy. It may look like she’s all over the place, but as with Lindsay, there is an order to it all.
