Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?
The Arrow of Time, Diego Goldberg
Every year on June 17 — that’s his anniversary with his wife — Goldberg takes a portrait of everyone in his family, and adds it to this project. There are no formal preparations, so the photos reflect the way each person looked on that day. There is no fancy equipment either. Goldberg uses his Nikon — at first he used film, but now he shoots with digital — to take the pictures. "Even if everybody has a camera, and anybody can do it, nobody thought of such a simple idea." But, he adds, "sometimes the simplest ideas are the best."
Diego says he gets mail every day from all over the world, and viewers express one of two things: “I will do it when I form a family” or “How come I didn’t think of it?” In response, Diego says: "Find your own angle and stick to it. After a couple of years you’ll see it was worth the effort."
This gave me chills.
So thankful for the baby bump featured in this photo and the amazing woman who took this pic while prepping for the festivities. I hope everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving!
oh no not true. i’m thankful for potatoes and blankets and my cute ass outfit today and my hair.
I needed to realize that every day mattered, and that is very easy to forget when you’re in the midst of some trauma. It’s easy to forget all the time. And I find that I still have to remind myself that every day is like a little life.
at last you, will say (maybe without speaking)
(there are mountains
inside your skull
garden and chaos, ocean
and hurricane; certain
corners of rooms, portraits
of great-grandmothers, curtains
of a particular shade;
your deserts; your private
dinosaurs; the first
all i need to know:
just as it was
from the beginning.
