Kirsty Mackay - My favourite colour was yellow

“‘My Favourite Colour Was Yellow’ is documentary photo book recording ‘the age of pink’. Pink has become synonymous with femininity to the extent that it is easy to take it for granted, but It hasn’t always been this way. In the 19th century boys were traditionally dressed in pink. This latest phenomenon has evolved in line with consumerism since the 1980’s.

Pure white is used for all babies. Blue is for girls and pink is for boys, when a colour is wished.’ Ladies Home Journal, 1890

Kirsty Mackay set out to photograph girls with their pink possessions as a way to understand how this one colour has become dominant. Working over a five year period, making portraits of the girls in their bedrooms and on the High St, Kirsty has created a document of this time for girls growing up in the UK.

After a period of documenting Kirsty began to probe deeper and the title of the book ‘My Favourite Colour Was Yellow’ reflects the theme at the heart of the book - a lack of choice. Kirsty offers us a sensitive and intimate glimpse into the lives of these girls own private worlds. An essay by American author and costume historian Jo B Paoletti, lends the photographs a cultural and historical context.

'Since the mid - 1980s, not only has pink become a strongly feminine color, but it has reached the level of moral imperative in the age group of three to seven.’ Jo B Paoletti

‘I started this project with the point of view of a parent. I was tired of the out of date and narrow view of what should appeal to girls. I felt they deserved more. The girls I photographed were very proud of their pink bedrooms and I learned from them, that the pink phase has become a right of passage. Most of them come out the other side before adolescence.’”

I was five miles from the road and minutes from a soaking. This intimate shot picks out the last dying needles before they drop. The thing I love most about wild places is the chances we get to see the small things nature is up to all the time.

The Gwydir forest is on the hills around Betws Y Coed and Llanrwst. I have had many great adventures there from mountain biking to mushroom hunting.
One of my favourite things is to get lost in the woods.

  • Favourite character: For a long, long time, it was Leonard.  Now it’s either Leonard or Bernadette.
  • Funniest character: Y’all are expecting me to say Sheldon, but I gotta go with Bernadette or Howard, they’ve really been killing it lately.
  • Best-looking character: Bernadette.  I have such a thing for Bernadette.
  • 3 favourite ships: Leonard/Penny (one of the few ships I will actually call an OTP, I’m very stingy about using that), Howard/Bernadette, and Shamy. (I was what the fandom knows as a Sheldon Purist before Amy came along.  She totally changed my mind on how I felt about the idea of Sheldon Cooper being in a relationship.)
  • Least favourite character: Of the main seven, Raj.  He used to be my favorite.  But I hate how the writers have handled him the past few seasons.  Kunal deserves more than what he’s being given.
  • Least favourite ship: Sheldon/Penny *2009-10 ship war flashbacks* I’m sorry but I have no idea why that was ever a thing nope nope nope at least the writers didn’t go there like Rachel/Joey there’s another nope.
  • Reason why I watch it: It’s how I met some really, really important people (I honestly don’t know how I’d live without @untiltheveryend at this point), I love the characters, I love the ships, and it just means so much to me.  It’s been around for over 40% of my life at this point and it’s one of the few things that has been constant.  When it got big, suddenly being a dorky smart kid was…not quite cool, but not something to be ashamed of anymore.  It normalized people like me and that feels really good.  The two times I’ve been lucky enough to go to a taping (season six and season nine, the latter being the 200th episode) I’ve heard so many others in the audience talking about how the characters are just like them, and it feels so good.  And it does.
  • Why I started watching it: ok so we were in our camper in Mississippi in the summer of 2008 and it was gross and rainy and my anti-sitcom mother was in the campground office so my dad and little sister and I turned on the tv and we only got two channels some golf thing and a TBBT rerun (it was The Grasshopper Experiment) and I swear to god, I’d never laughed so hard in my life (our favorite part was Raj: “Back off Sheldon. If you do not stop hitting on my lady, you will feel the full extent of my wrath!” Sheldon: “I’m not hitting on her!” Lalita: “And I am not your lady!” Howard: “And you have no wrath.” plus Sheldon singing Fiddler on the Roof at the end.)  That fall, my dad was flipping through channels and found the season two premiere, which we watched because we’d liked the one we’d seen that summer so much.  And then we just kept watching, I fell in love with Leonard and Penny, and that was it.

I just finished reading "Finding My Way Home" and let me tell you, I had all kinds of feels with this one because best-friends-to-lovers is one of my all time faves and you knocked it out of the park! The uncertainty on both sides and misreading the signs, ugh, I wanted to push their heads together and say "kiss already"! But when they finally did *swoon* You did a wonderful job and your writing always flows so effortlessly and it's a pleasure to read. Thank you so much for sharing! *hugs*

My friend, thank you so much for this!!! Both for your incredibly sweet note, and for an excuse to use what might be my favourite gif of all time (kiss already!) ;) Seriously, thank you, I struggled hard with that story and I’m so pleased that you liked it!

What was the meanest prank Chris ever played on you? 
Scott: Like I said before, there’s literally a million, but as a little brother I was like ‘that’s amazing.’ We were outside one time, playing outside, no toys, nothing, just imaginary games - and we both had to go to the bathroom. And he said to me, ’
Well, we don’t wanna go inside (obviously), it takes up too much time, why don’t we just.. go right now, like, in our pants.’ And I was like, 'What do you mean?’ And of course he could’ve said anything and I would’ve been like 'that sounds awesome.’“

‘It was one of my favourite scenes that we’ve shot. I know it was a very simple scene, but we came back for the beginning of the third block of shooting, and that’s the first place we started shooting; by the secret door.’ - Richard Armitage
