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.
Moult on Flickr.Via Flickr:
When birds change their feathers it’s called moulting. Moulting is a process done regularly by birds to replace old feathers with new, healthy feathers. 
That’s exactly where I am in my life right now. Out with the old, in with the new. :)

171/365: Your Protector on Flickr.Via Flickr:She left a week to roam
Your protector’s coming home
Keep your secrets with you, girl
Safe from the outside world
You walk along the stream
Your head caught in a waking dream
Your protector’s coming home
Coming home
Fleet Foxes
Making up for that week I missed. Here’s my first idea from yesterday.

I feel like experimenting. Sorry it’s kind of sloppy…I need to sleep.

168/365: Champagne Supernova on Flickr.Via Flickr:Someday you will find me 
Caught beneath the landslide 
In a champagne supernova in the sky 
Someday you will find me 
Caught beneath the landslide 
In a champagne supernova 
A champagne supernova in the sky 
Wake up the dawn and ask her why 
A dreamer dreams, she never dies
Oasis
Time crunch…more flowers for you.

158/365: Time II on Flickr.Via Flickr:And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it’s sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you’re older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Pink Floyd
First off…I FINISHED EDITING BEFORE MIDNIGHT! :o
I haven’t had enough fun with flour yet. Lying in a mound of it before work wasn’t a  brilliant idea…nonetheless I am happy with the results. Thanks to the uneven pavement the expansion was pretty simple.
A sort of sequential image to 128/265: Time and partially inspired by the amazing Shane Black. :)

156/365: The Ghost Inside on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I’m developing a bad habit of falling asleep during editing. 
I feel like my photos have been so bland and boring lately so I wanted to try something new. This was pretty fun. I went through a full bag of flour… and I’m still cleaning it out of my ears.

153/365: Look Into the Air on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I was up in La Jolla and ventured to Mt. Soledad just before the sunset. Crawled into some bushes to escape spectators…normal.
That view is to die for. Mountains to the left, ocean to the right. :)

Guh this expansion took forever. I have so many outside project photos to get through…I feel like I’m never going to catch up at this rate.

150/365: Soul Meets Body on Flickr.Via Flickr:I want to live where soul meets body
And let the sun wrap its arms around me
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
And feel, feel what its like to be new
Death Cab For Cutie
It’s been awhile since I’ve uploaded something I am truly proud of. I’m pushing myself to try new things in post-processing. I spent a little extra time editing this yesterday so I didn’t get to the other photo. I’ll have two more up later (hopefully).
Inspired by Ibai Acevedo. If you’re not already following his work, I highly recommend you do so. :)

149/365: Someday You Will Be Loved on Flickr.Via Flickr:You’ll be loved you’ll be loved
Like you never have known
The memories of me
Will seem more like bad dreams
Just a series of blurs
Like I never occurred
Someday you will be loved 
Last one of the night. Glorious sleep here I come.

148/365: Beach Baby on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I woke up early and no one else in the camp was awake.
I wandered down to the deserted beach and pondered life with Bon Iver.

Ensenada, Mexico
I wandered off to…breathe.
This was probably my favorite singular moment of the trip.

145/365: Take a Picture on Flickr.Via Flickr:
This is my most extensive expansion ever…it nearly crashed my computer when I tried saving it. I almost had a heart attack since I spent so damn long editing. -_-
I’m holding my Diana that I’ve had for 5 months and have yet to get a single roll of film developed. At the very least I think it makes a very nice photo prop. I’ll try using it for real this summer.
I’m afraid I’m about to fall even farther behind since I will be out of the country until Monday. I will do my best to keep shooting but in all honesty, I could use a vacation. From everything I have going on…this project included.
See ya guys…please don’t forget about me!

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.
