Yes but hear me out: urban wizards.

Wizards in big cities who wear skinny jeans and flannel. Who make pencils out of their wands so they can hide them in plain sight. Who get into back alley fights on brooms. Who charm guys harassing girls at bars into having blue skin for the next week. Who keep cats in their pet free apartments by transfiguring them whenever their landlord stops in. Who do street performances for money and wink at little kids when they pocket their wands. Who exchange secret smiles whenever they pass each other.

Urban. Wizards.



In a secluded area of Mount Hiei, shrouded in mist, the Japanese Institute for Magical Practices spirals gracefully into the sky. The school is a series of elegant pagodas built to impossible heights with a multitude of connecting bridges crisscrossing like a bird’s nest. On the ground is an elaborate garden with a sprinkling of ponds. A kaleidoscope of fish zigzag through the water, sometimes even taking to the air like birds due to rather peculiar abilities gained over time through overexposure to magic. Students often take immense pleasure in enchanting a cherry blossom downpour to trail people who have wronged them; the charm usually remains intact for well over a week unless a teacher takes pity upon the student and dispels the spell. While they have mastered wandless magic through the use of talismans, pockets of the Japanese wizarding community have slowly begun to adopt the use of wands following its rise in popularity all over the world, although wandless magic still takes precedence, and wands are more often tucked behind their ears or used to hold up their hair than to practice magic.

What’s in a wizard’s pockets?: James Potter, 7th year. 

Part of a project I’m putting together. James has got his two-way mirror, his wand, his father’s hair potion, a Gryffindor flag, a to-do-list, his Head Boy Badge, invisibility cloak, a snapshot of girlfriend Lily Evans, and a secret engagement ring, oooo. 

And, of course, I fixed the wand. I hate the ‘official’ ones so much.

Creative Block - Week 2 by Cassidy Kristiansen on Flickr.

Week 2/52

Part of the reason I started the 52 Week Project was due to the fact I was out of ideas. I wasn’t shooting, but I still couldn’t think of an idea I liked to save my life. This came to life when I jokingly thought to myself I could just photograph my creative block. Boom.

I also originally had a different location in mind, set everything up, and went to use my remote only to realize it was busted. So, I had to compromise and set up a spot that was easier to run to in ten seconds. It’s also the same place as this and this picture. My backyard is an interesting place.
