i was preparing a big beach-themed post selecting images, trying to fit them together… but they were unwilling to cooperate, unfortunately. i had to put the idea away for now. instead, i turned to my favorite thing which is browsing my photo archives and picking the shots that i feel are secretly talking. the process is highly intimate and quite whimsical. music is important. today’s compilation is helped by noah and the whale, the national, and m83.
