montevideo (IV)

“put your soul in the palm of my hand for me to look at, like a crystal jewel. i'll sketch it in words.”
― yasunari kawabata

parque rodó, montevideo. uruguay

take me back to simpler, greener days
of wandering in parks and befriending ducks;
of pressing yellow leaves in books
and falling half asleep under a bright, cold sky.


montevideo (III)

parque rodó, montevideo. uruguay

two months after our short trip to uruguay
i finally had the time to have the photos developed,
and i got to wander again through the green gardens
and pretty art déco houses of parque rodó.

“she wanted—what some people want throughout life—a grief that should deeply touch her, 
and thus humanize and make her capable of sympathy.” 
 ― nathaniel hawthorne

i've spent the better half of the past week sick in bed
covered in layers of cotton and wool,
sneezing and drinking lots of tea.
also reading. a lot.

i really wish for the flu to go away,
but i cannot deny that, while sickly and annoyed,
this little time off work has been quite great.

new film photos as soon as i'm week enough to go to the lab!

have a wonderful day,


films on a friday: fire burn and caldron bubble

"by the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes"

the last few months i had time for almost nothing
so, after several days of working from 10 to 10
i decided that i deserved to take at least an hour and half at the end of the day
(or sometimes two hours and then some more)
and watch a movie.

i kind of missed the film friday section
so here's a little summary of the films i watched last week.

the blood on satan's claw, 1971

ivan's childhood, 1962

the phantom carriage, 1921

the tragedy of macbeth, 1971
(dear roman, i love you.
dear william, i love you too.
and you too, lady macbeth)

nostalghia, 1983
(yes, andrei, i love you too.

there's something so hauntingly beautiful about his films
that i really believe he does not make movies,
he makes poetry in motion)

also watched: cronos and harry potter and the sorcerer's stone

have a wonderful weekend!

first days of autumn

"autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 
― albert camus

march, 2015.

as you may probably noticed, i've cheated and these are digital.
actually, they're ipod-vscocam-digital, so sorry about that :3
i'm still in the middle of a work storm
but autumn arrived and i just had to get out and capture it
if only in digital form on a super quick stroll around my neighbourhood.
because it is, after all, my favourite of all seasons.

there's something about autumn light i love so much
and all those different shades of green-yellow-gold
and the sound the leaves make when you walk
and, even when days get slowly colder, the general warmness of it all.
it's like the world becomes tinted with cinnamon and honey
and it even smells like it.

hope you're all having a wonderful day
and a happy start of the spring to all my darling northern hemisphere girls
i know you've all been eagerly waiting for the flowers to be in bloom once again


film friday: wilde

"in this life there are only two tragedies. one is not getting what one wants. the other is getting it."

wilde, 1997.
