Keep Her Out of Trouble

But it’s a little girl with a rock. How much luck do you think the White Rook is going to have here?

Yeah, me neither.

* * *

I have acquired an epic set of blisters on my right foot pinkie toe and may end up missing a run this week to give it time to heal a little more.

Yesterday’s fourteen-miler was an interesting one in that physically, I was pretty fine, barring the blisters. Yes, as I got to the last three miles, I was feeling *tired*. But that wasn’t what was eating me.

It was all the bullshit in my head.

It’s amazing the crap judgments we run on ourselves. Yesterday, it was all about how I wasn’t running fast enough, never mind the blisters, never mind that I ache like an old lady, it didn’t matter. Every time someone passed me, the Critic in the head would start up on how we should speed up, we were going too slow, yadda yadda yadda…


In comparison to what?

The part of me that knows better came back very quickly thankfully with, “According to whom?”

So here’s this last run’s lesson.

This isn’t a speed race. It’s an endurance race. The point is to *finish*. And this is true about so many damn things. Who the fuck cares if you get there first? Because I have news for you. Someone’s already been there first. ALWAYS. But not everyone finishes.

Slow doesn’t matter.

*DONE* matters.

And right now? As of yesterday, I ran more than half a marathon. The Critic can suck it.

Stay with Me

The husband loves this one for the Mouse’s expression. I do too. “Make the crazy lady stop squeezing me!”

Too perfect…

The end of the current novel is being a stone bitch. I know what happens. But unpacking it into actual action is killing me. I don’t know why. I am resorting to my usual trick of going to YouTube and watching fight scenes from my favorite movies for inspiration.

There are just not enough epic sword fight scenes in movies anymore…

Alice's Stone III

And we return you to your regular broadcast schedule…

Slowly digging through the photos. I meant to do more work last night, but my brain was so burnt after the few photos I got edited, I had to turn in. I ended up reading a book of Leonardo Da Vinci’s collected writings.

He didn’t think much of the willfully ignorant either…

* * *

Training is continuing to go well, which sustains me. So does writing. Husband is on the hustle. Still no word on other things.

We keep on keeping on.

The Sky Warning II, originally uploaded by quennessa.

And a little moodier here.

Oh, I love how creepy it is.

The Sky Warning, originally uploaded by quennessa.

This one you might want to click through and find the large size to look at. It really wants to be 20x30 when finally printed.

The cloud did that, the whole hand thing. I didn't digitally put that in. Because when I put in my shot requests, even the weather gets with the program.

Pinky's Ransom, originally uploaded by quennessa.

This one, like the White Rook considering the Girl Alice, the one that seems to be so filled with nostalgia, *this* one...

Oh, the story.

And the White Queen's disdain...

White Queen's Judgment, originally uploaded by quennessa.

Love the light and silhouette of this. It's ominous and just wonderful.

Oh yes.

Love this project so much.

White Queen's Throne II, originally uploaded by quennessa.

Annnd we're back!

Playground equipment on the beach turned out to be the best props for this chunk of the Alice Assassin shoot. Loved it. Dig that yellowed black and white effect.

Red Knight White Knight II, originally uploaded by quennessa.

And we're back.

Or as the White Knight would say here, "It's a fair cop."

Love this series. Love.

angela_n_hunt: (Default)

I love the arrested movement of Girl Alice in the background.

Whatever could it be that's caught her eye?

angela_n_hunt: (Default)

I'm a bit sleep deprived this morning, so I don't have anything particularly pithy to say about this shot.

Only that I love it. And that shooting days like that are a gift. Cause sometimes you fight the light, or the weather, or the gear, or just a myriad of things. But you keep doing it for the days like this one. Where you get the perfect light, the perfect weather, your gear doesn't spaz out on you and you remember to bring towels.


Those days keep you shooting forever.

You can't see it, but she's standing in that swing in four inch white stilletos.

I know.

She's frikken' amazing.

Here, the luminosity of all the white and all the fabric and the crown is slipping off her head and she's missing fingers from her glove...

Oh yeah. She's crazy.

This entire shoot, but especially this shot, had Tea in the Sahara by the Police running through my head.

The sky turned to black
Would he ever come back?
They would climb a high dune
They would pray to the moon
But he'd never return
So the sisters would burn
As their eyes searched the land
With their cups full of sand

Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you

Or in the case, martini glasses full of sand.

The fact that all I had to say to the Mad Model as direction was, "It's Sunset Boulevard and you're waiting for your close up, Mr. DeMille."

angela_n_hunt: (Default)

What's this?

Could it Alice?

On my beach?

* * *

Photographer's note: I did an alarmingly little amount of retouching on this series so far. It's probably one of the cleanest shoots I've done in a long time. What came out of the camera was almost exactly what I wanted.

So so so happy.
angela_n_hunt: (Default)

And here she is. One each White Queen. And yes, that is the Mad Model, doing double duty, but bringing something completely different and fantastic to the shoot.

Behind her, the fabulous D, also doing double duty as the White Rook.

Was a perfect day for shooting at the beach. Hardly any wind, not even cold in December, and the light... Oh. The light.

I couldn't have gotten a better shooting day if I had specifically asked.
angela_n_hunt: (Default)

I really love this image.

Yes. Finally. More from Alice Assassin. Finally.

Sorry it didn't get posted earlier in the day. I've just not been all here for some reason.

Like the White Knight, I've spent the day dreaming of freedom.
angela_n_hunt: (Default)

More Alice Assassin.

This is why losing to the Red Knight is a *bad* thing.

* * *

Day late, because of yesterday's jury duty.

I'm tired. I ache. The weather is turning, no matter the Indian Summer in progress. I can feel it in my bones.


Brain just crashed. Enjoy the pretty picture!
