DescriptionIn memory of Meredith Fonda Russell - May 16, 1982 - Dec 7 2002.If you were hereI know that you wouldTruly be amazedAt what's become of what you made;If you were hereYou would know how I treasured every dayHow every single word you spokeEchoes in me like a memory of hope.-Poe black is bright !It's been five years. Not really sure what else to say. Meredith was the most inspiring person I've ever met. And I miss her. But I'm also trying to celebrate her, rather than mourn.The pose is borrowed from a picture of Meredith at Burning Man (below) - I was actually planning to get spinning pictures, but then I decided to do the kicking instead. It made me dizzy and tired. But Meredith was a dancer, so leaping and spinning and kicking and frolicking was only fair! There were better kick photos with my leg higher in the air, where my knee isn't bent, but this one had the feeling of light and whimsy that really belongs in a picture about someone who was so vibrant.She used to have pink dred twists that she wore like teddy bear hair on the sides of her head. So I did my hair like her and wore the pink dress, rather than stealing Xelia's hair colour for one shot. It would have been awesome if my hair matched my dress though. The tattoo on my arm is her writing - a Sophocles quote she had written down:"Give me a life wherever there is opportunity to live."EDIT: Okay, so I might have photoshopped my hair to be pink: and I like it.

I'm in a relationship with an amazing person, whom I met through the flickr 365 project. Thank you, flickr!
We're still living on opposite sides of the country unfortunately, so we've put together a cute little store in hopes of raising money for another visit.
Disclaimer: I express myself in whatever way is the most honest. I have a lot to say, and a lot of it is raw, naked. So, yes, some of my photos are nudes. This does not mean I would like to be objectified - it just means that my body is as much a part of who I am as my face, and I don't treat it with shame and shadows. Please don't send me notes and comments asking how you can chat with me, see more pictures, convince me to join your site or whatever. If you like my photography and have something constructive to say, please do. If you're just here for the tits, I think you'll be disappointed.
