because i feel that i am a "people person".
but not the job interviewy way.
not in the "sure i love everyone and have to be surrounded by people at all times" way.
i used to think that's what it meant.
now i feel it's more of "i'm genuinely curious about the things in your brain that motivate you to be you" thing.
i could sit and watch people all day. any one. it all took an interesting turn when i received a chinese face reader book a couple of years ago. i never put that thing down. it sits on my bathroom counter right next to my mirror so i can research the meaning of new wrinkles and over night freckles. i'm practicing my new skills on strangers everyday. every single day. i have actually asked people in the middle of a totally casual conversation how close they are to overcoming their father issues after noticing the placement of a line between their eyebrows. totally inappropriate i'm sure but sometimes i can't freaking contain myself.
anyways- photography has helped my further my love for looking at people.
staring at them actually.
this is getting weird.
and the only thing it has to do with the following pictures is that i was invited to take pictures at a party and had a wonderful time. i got to observe a group of people that obviously liked each other. i was the fly on the wall.
so here's a couple of the high lights:
baked brie with brown sugar and pecans.
(seriously. shut up. i ate more than a fly should.)
baby birds cupcakes.
the greatest yellow lab on the planet.
this baby's hair.
(i can't look at this picture without throwing my hands over my mouth and squealing. she's perf.)
my favorite little thumb sucker.
and as long as i'm exposing way too much of my weirdness to the world wide web at 10:18pm here's a couple of shots i found of nick drake this afternoon.
the musician's photographers have the best job.
makes me jealous.
if anyone knows karen o. tell her there's a face reading "people person" dying to take her pictures.
what just happened?
