The muse strikes again


Copyright
Bathroom selfies never looked so good.
Well, my muse has struck again. I was lying there, half-asleep with my noise-canceling headphones on when the song came on and a fan dance pops into my head.

Much like the Hospital Woman, where I took Florence + the Machine’s Shake It Out and reinterpreted it as an anthem of shaking off society’s imposed shame on queer people, this time I’m reinterpreting a love song.

It was originally a plea from a son to his mother, seeking her approval of his love. Approval and withheld from him.

I hear a trans woman, standing before the vanity, begging herself in the mirror. That love is the love she feels for herself but she doesn’t know if it’s real or not. So she pleads with herself. To be worthy of that love.

Let the act development process begin! Now I just need to build myself a vanity that breaks down and travels easily.

 


Astrophotography in Dayville, OR


About a month ago, I snuck off with Lilith Van Dyke to a small cottage nestled in the black skies of Central Oregon to take photos of the Galactic Central Core. We also visited the John Day Fossil Beds and got our nerd on with rocks.

Here are a few of those nighttime skies.

Every time I go out into the dark, I always pick up some new bit of information that makes my photos better.

Lilith is in silhouette from the citronella candles near the car. She did her photography using her phone's astrophotography features and they turned out simply stunning.

All three of the photos were processed as a stack, or many exposures of the same area of the sky layered together and composited to get the best visual information.

This was a fine way to spend the second weekend in June.
