365 #83 – 88

This week summed up in a conversation me and my friend Will had 5 minutes ago:

“dosent it feel like this semester has been more stressful than any other year before? Like oddly stressful.”

“trueee”

10.09.2017: Old Friend

God, it feels good to be at home. Honestly, i couldnt have asked for a better day — it rained, my neighborhood was clouded with the mist and humidity — simply perfect weather.

I also got batteries for an old film camera my uncle gave me about 5 or 6 years ago and I finally got it to work, and its so exciting to open up a new world in photography guys [this basically means that Clark watch out — film is comming].

Met an old friend today, after a while. My neighbors cat, Max [at least thats what ive called him for 10 years] and I have always been close, becoming increasingly close over the last year since ive been in college and not been able to see him as often as i would like to. I was photographing in my backyard when I saw him napping on a black and white couch, and I called his name, out of excitement. He ran over, jumped on the cement ledge, and since my hand was on his side of the fence [he is on my neighbors side, and im on my side] and touched my hand with his paw. I dont know, moments like that dont happen often, and i felt so humbled by the experience [ i didnt capture this on camera since it was so organic and wonderful].

But I shot some portraits of him.

So, its been a crazy week. Donald Trump became the president elect of America. The air was charged with animosity and hate towards those who supported him as well as those who supported third party candidates. It was toxic and poisonous.

I took Tuesday a little differently than most people, going outside and dancing and singing in the streets while walking to CC Lowells, an art store about 20 minutes from Clark’s campus. I refused to let the gloom get to me. I went live on FB later that day, around 10ish spitting out my thoughts about the aftermath to a suprising audience of 30 of my friends.

Page 13 was my way of coping with the results of the election. Its a bit of a combination of national geographic pages and a white ink pen that I bought at CC Lowells yesterday.
