{Serendipitous Exposure}

Here are some photos I took whilst wandering around L'arc de triomphe and surrounding areas in Montpellier, France - where I have the great fortune to be living and studying this year. I intended to capture the old quarter of the Mediterranean city basking in the glow of the sunset. My (usually trustworthy) old film camera, however, had other ideas. I'm still not sure what happened exactly, but the battery ran out and decided to save energy by fusing three images together (can you tell I'm an amateur photographer?!) These photos may look a little shoddy, but when you think about it it's quite a happy little accident to be able to catch several different moments of time onto one image. Thanks to my willing Italian model, Gianlorenzo!

{Lana With Those Lips}

Introducing the self-dubbed 'gangsta Nancy Sinatra', Lana Del Rey. And boy has she got one hell of a voice. On first blush, Video Games struck me as a little melancholy, a little slow and not in the good way. 24 hours and a bazillion plays later I was hooked. She's just got one of those soothing voices, not to mention she looks like a Goddess. Her lyrics read like poems: 

 My, who me, my
Feet don't fail me nowTake me to the finish lineOhh my heart it breaks every step that I takeBut I'm hoping at the gates,They'll tell me that you're mineWalking through the city streetsIs it by mistake or designI feel so alone on the friday nightCan you make me feel like home,if I tell you you're mine

Can't get enough of her videos either, so much style. Who else can make red converse and fake blood look that glamorous?
