PAIGE NELSON

My name is Paige.

I'm an aspiring photographer with an insatiable curiosity and an appetite for the fantastic.

This blog is dedicated to my greatest passion- photography. All of the photos on here are mine unless otherwise stated.

Still thinking about it…I’m way too tired to edit right now. Poor roses have seen better days.

180/365: 40 Mark Strasse on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I don’t know what keeps drawing me back to this tree. It’s gnarled, grey and dead but despite all that, it is still beautiful. It’s the only standing tree on the hill above the canyon. Some of its branches have withered and fallen down below it which is what I’m sitting on.

174/365: Everything’s Not Lost on Flickr.Via Flickr:If you ever feel neglected,
If you think all is lost,
I’ll be counting up my demons, yeah,
Hoping everything’s not lost.
When you thought that it was over,
You could feel it all around,
Everybody’s out to get you,
Don’t you let it drag you down.
Cos if you ever feel neglected,
If you think that all is lost,
I’ll be counting up my demons, yeah.
Hoping everything’s not lost

5 minutes to shoot today..trying hard not to fall behind so thought I would try something simple. A friend of mine pointed out to me that most of my pictures feature me with my eyes closed or faceless. I usually try to avoid straight on portraits…mostly because I have such a hard time capturing the right expression in my eyes. And still a little camera shy if you can believe it.
I put in my two weeks tonight.

144/365: Summertime Sadness on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Lana Del ReyI think I’ll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies
Not really sad, I just think that song is so beautiful.
I edited this awhile ago…think it might have been from Day 118. Uploading for the sake of catching up…which increasingly seems like a daunting and near impossible task. 
I may have to take this project at my own pace and cheat a little here and there. Hope you guys don’t mind.

133/365: Monday Morning on Flickr.Via Flickr:She may be young but she only likes old things,
And modern music it ain’t to her taste,
She loves the natural light, captured in black and white,
She sees mirages of mountain ranges,
Within a blink of her eyes it changes,
Back to the open plain, oh no she can’t explain.
I cry out “Love keep your arms around me”,
I am a bird that’s in need of grounding,
I’m built to fly away, I never learned how to stay.
Death Cab for Cutie
I hate moving even more than I hate finals. I took two photos yesterday but I only half like this one. It’s getting hot now which means it’s time for shorts…this is in black and white because I am white. :o
After this week I should be able to keep on track. I know I keep saying that but I mean it.

121/365: Born to Die on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn’t find
All the answers, honey
Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh,
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime
Lana Del Rey
The netting from top hat inspired me to do a black and white. This is the only photo I took today.

113/365: Between two points on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Well our washing machine is broken so I had to go to the laundromat. I brought my camera with me but everyone and their moms decided to do laundry tonight. So there was this empty parking structure across street…I wasn’t there for very long because it started to creep me out. 
And somehow I ended up with this.
My roommate and I found a new place to live today. Horraah! Huge weight lifted off my shoulders.

Chained to all the places that he never wished to stay 
Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say 
As he faced the sun he cast no shadow
I love Oasis.
So…when I don’t have any ideas all I need to do is play with my hair. This should get me through the next 262 days, right? I haven’t cut my hair for an entire year. Let’s see how long it gets by the end of this!
Not quite sure how I feel about this yet. Pointless unless viewed larger.

Sometimes I sing this to myself…
It’s hard to believe
That there’s nobody out there
It’s hard to believe
That I’m all alone
At least I have her love
The city she loves me
Lonely as I am
Together we cry”

I had no time to upload today. School straight to work. I’ll have a better picture tomorrow when I have some time.
This kitty is a part of my every day life which is why she’s on my stream so often. Mia will attack anything in string form that moves quickly.

In the light of the sun, is there anyone? Oh it has begun
Oh dear you look so lost,
eyes are red and tears are shed,
This world you must’ve crossed… she said

You don’t know me, you don’t even care
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah,

She said I think I’ll go to Boston…
I think I’ll start a new life,
I think I’ll start it over, where no one knows my name,
I’ll get out of California, I’m tired of the weather,
I think I’ll get a lover and fly him out to Spain…
Oh yeah and I think I’ll go to Boston,
I think that I’m just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind…

It seems like I would rather photograph parts of a horse rather than the whole thing. Look closely…I’m in this picture too :)
I just printed and framed this and it turned out even better than I expected. Looks much better larger on black.
