End of the Year

by ellen von unworth

So I'm gonna go right ahead and say in the next year I'm incorporating BDSM and kink into most, if not all, of my photography. I'll just skip the pretense that I'm not, like, one of the more perverted girls around. Sex, fetish, bondage for everyone!

Any first takers?

Besides all that, today is the last day of 2008 and I'm pretty sure I'm ready for a new year. This past one hasn't been that bad, I've learned a lot, grown a lot, traveled a lot. I've taken a lot of pictures and met a lot of really great people.

Last year at this time I was chasing after dick and living in a shit hole. I was getting my apartment broken into and dealing with a slumlord. I wasn't speaking to my family and I was friendless, loveless and mopey.

Today I think I'm poorer, and I have no idea where I'll be living in the next couple of weeks, but I have a couple great friends, a fun job, a loving family, a heart full of hope and a holster of cameras.

I am on the prowl.

Extremely extreme!

Sometimes I feel like my wings are tightly bound, others; stretched and ready to fly, and once and a while all I feel is the weightless soaring...

I love you.

You are Mine

Everyone has their obsession
Consuming thoughts, consuming time
They hold high their prized posession
That defines the meaning of their lives

You are mine
You are mine
You are mine, oh mine
You are mine

There are objects of affection
That can mesmerize the soul
There is always one addiction
That just cannot be controlled

You are mine
You are mine
You are mine, oh mine
You are mine

Everyone has their obsession
Consuming thoughts, consuming time
They hold high their prized posession
They hold high their prized posession

Finally, Olympus

Finally! I got my olympus stylus epic in the mail. $40 off of ebay and even came with the case - practically brand fucking new.

And while I adore the cameras that have been given to me by family and close friends, this.. this is the first camera that I bought... well, besides the dozens of polaroids and such, most of which don't work but that I've just collected since I was little to look pretty.

Finally, I shot something today. Finally I have my little camera.

But being evicted is not something to look forward to, especially to kick off the new year and, oh, by the way, Merry Fucking Christmas, Meagan. Christ.

Where do I go? What do I do? Move to Syracuse with Holly, Chicago with Melody, New York City filled with people to photograph, Pittsburgh? Back pack Europe? South America?

How does one pick up and move with a month notice?

Above is a shot of Melody, intended to be a head shot for her book.. I don't know if I have anything she'll put in it, but the more I look at this one, the happier I am with it. Thanks, Mell, for letting me have it, even if you weren't very happy with me.

There are two people I can always rely on, Mell is one.

King of the Trailer Park

Here's a shot from a while ago, when this foxy thing brought me on a hike. King of the Trailer Park.

I'm hunkering down tomorrow to develop and scan, and am fairly fucking stoked to see what I have. It's hard to shoot up here and hard to find people to shoot, but I try to make do with what I have. I've realized that I have a lot of rolls from months ago that I developed but never scanned - there was a moment there where all I was doing was shooting; mostly with the Olympus Frank gave me before I dropped it one too many times.

Which reminds me: I bought another one on ebay(!). It'll be here in a couple days and I couldn't be more excited. Hopefully it works and is actually the one I think it is. (insert thrilled squeal)

Oh. And I have to move in a month. Suggestions? I need to get the fuck out of upstate New York.
