six o'clock on the dot

Tori tagged me in "6th folder, 6th photo." Basically,"Open the 6th picture folder on your computer, open the 6th photo and blog it. Write something about it. Then tag 6 more people to do the same."


This photo is a scanned image of a polaroid I took in the summer at my Grandma's 80th birthday party in Virginia. This cute little girl would wonder around my aunt's house by herself, completely confident and unfazed by the copious amount of people. 

I was captured by her curiosity. Running around the house, she would occasionally stop and observe, then move on. I would sit back with my cousins and Camila, my friend from Brazil was with us, and wonder what she was thinking about. I would come up with a different narrative for each polaroid I took of her. 

For this photo, I imagined her staring into the black world that is a shadow. The dark mass was special because it was a gateway into a new world. She saw Creetons, tall lanky creatures with animal suites and Omphians, short round creatures with big eyes, playing cranks in a black garden. Unfamiliar to their world, she was puzzled by the game and their existence, and longed to join in. This picture is of her contemplating just how she could fit herself into these bizarre creatures' reality. 

Oh, I tag Cody, Daysha and Katy to do the same.
