Come on get down with the sickness (Richard Cheese version)


Well, I came down with quite the illness – one that I am all too familiar with. Since always, I have had issues with my god awful tonsils. They are incapable of doing their job (which is to fight illness) and leave me, at least 4 times a year, totally bed ridden, sounding like a weird frog, and unable to consume anything. This time around wasn’t quite as bad, since I managed to avoid needing emergency care for severe dehydration.  However, it looks like the end is near (hopefully). I have an appointment to see a specialist about having these stupids removed from me. It could solve my never-ending problem, or it may not…but it’s worth a try in my humble opinion.

I felt well enough today to get out of bed and snap some photos. They were very as is though – no make up, hair freshly washed/unbrushed, and wearing some of my very favourite underthings by Fortnight Lingerie (okay, that’s not as is, I put those on for the photos). I figured, if I’m not feeling well, why not just shoot myself the way I am at this very moment, no fussing, just a pale sick gal and her pretty (toronto-made!!) lingerie.

Ginger Entanglement

AmandaCharchian-74-690This series by Amanda Charchian entitled “Ginger Entanglement” immediately struck my attention when I first happened upon it. The pale skin, rich ginger hair and sea foam backdrop compliment each other in such an immense way. I wish I could describe how perfect this series feels to me. It’s so simple really. And yet, it seems so complex because of her use of the female form. The models become abstract with the entwined braids, and caressing bodies, with arms coming from what seems like nowhere, free floating across each other – entangled, much like the braid. It’s refreshing to see someone using the human body as an actual object of art. Forming shapes, making you forget that these are actually 6 ginger headed adult women. Without faces, we feel a disconnect. Faces can be too real, too obvious. They are the cause for human connections. Our eyes. When you take that away you can create something that feels otherworldly. And apparently all it takes is some long hair, ivory skin, and extremities (oh, and obviously Amanda Charchian).
