Looking around your boyfriend’s
house, a slow smile slipped onto your face. You spruced it up for a bit, left a
cute, store made cake on the kitchen table, and left a few wrapped gifts on his
bed. He had been feeling a bit down because the other RFA members were having
to push their celebration for him by a few days (thanks to them all having a
hectic schedule), but he had been trying to act like it didn’t bother him as
much as it did.
You walked over to the computer,
shaking the mouse a bit to look at the little clock on his desktop. Okay, he
would be home soon… You slipped off your apron, folding it in half and letting
it rest on the back of a spare chair for the table.
Only one of the shops was open on the seedy side of Columbus, GA last Sunday morning. Honestly, I couldn’t believe any were open, during church hours, in the heart of the bible belt. But, there it was, like a dirty little oasis, flaunting it’s torrid TOYS sign, for all of the glory seekers to see.
I went in and an older black lady was watching the register. I introduced myself, like a southern gentlemen should, and asked her what she thought I should take pictures of in Columbus. She looked at me, as if to say, “Do you see a sign on the door that says "Visitor Center”, Mother Fucker?“
I then asked if I could take pictures of her. She laughed hard and said that she had a big African husband who wouldn’t like that. I did my best to assure her that he’d like the pictures just fine, maybe even love them! Sadly, she was unaffected by my passionate plea.
When I told her that my girlfriend was in the car, she was kind enough to offer us a private room for the bargain price of $12. I told her we’d consider the offer and we parted ways.
Because I have a long-standing love for Death Cab, and one of my favourite songs of theirs is A Lack of Color, which I felt was appropriate for what started out as a predominantly black and white photography blog.
2) What is your middle name?
3) If you could own a fairy tale/fictional pet, what would it be?

The darkest of dark greens.
5) Favourite song(s)?

I Can Feel A Hot One // Manchester Orchestra
Night // Adna
Queen Bee // Devendra Banhart
Someone You’d Admire // Fleet Foxes
6) What are your top three fandoms?
I wouldn’t say that I participate in any “fandoms”, but I am a massive fan of a lot of things..top three of which would probably have to be The Lord of the Rings series, Harry Potter, and anything and everything written at the hands of Maggie Stiefvater.
7) Why did you join tumblr?
A friend of mine insisted that I join for a little over a year until I finally swallowed my pride (and my technological inefficiency) and caved. But I stayed because its a wonderful outlet for creative work, as well as it can be an outlet for stress or just a space to create that endlessly reflects your interests and desires as they change and evolve. And for the most part I’ve found the people here to be wonderfully kind and constructive and uplifting.
