dream up, dream up

hurry up and wait forever
These pictures aren't mine, so click on the photos to see the photographers' Flickr links!

Man oh man, I cannot wait to get back home and start taking pictures! Being a vehicle-less college student on an urban campus is not an ideal situation for a lil ole pastoralist like me, haha. But I'm living vicariously through these Flickr shots. I love finding everyday things left behind in abandoned houses; they tell so many stories and make the lives once lived there seem so much more real. Not gonna lie here, I have salvaged several souvenirs from local ruins, and I'd have several more if I ever stumbled upon any of the lovely dresses some of these photographers have discovered.

In slightly related news, my current camera is very cheap and has seen quite a bit of wear, so I'm currently researching camera brands and getting ready to get myself a new camera! It's a little bittersweet; me and my old HP Photosmart have been all over the world together; *sniffle* each scuff on its grey plastic shell tells a story. Ah well, I got some serious birthday money from the family in Britain, and I'm so excited to get a decent quality camera for the first time!
