If Wishes Were Fishes

I need about a week in this bed to recover from the past week. I wish it was mine.

I wish Lily and I had gone on our annual apple picking before it got too late.
I wish it still looked like this at my bus stop...
...instead of like this.
Yet I think I would rather take this...
over this. I'm just all jumbled up inside!
I wish I had been waiting for a certain someone to come in the door...
...except instead of that luncheonette I wish I'd been waiting in Les Deux Magots...

...and perhaps wearing this instead.
(Vintage dress, mom's lace camisole, TJMaxx tights)
And if wishes were fishes, I know where I'd be
Casting my net in the dark rolling sea
And if my net's empty when it comes back to shore
I'll throw it away and go fishing no more
My mom’s started playing Eric Bogle again, so I know it’s getting close to the holidays. It’s just one of those things!
P.S This blows my mind. I can’t wait to find out more.

  1. Gorgeous photos, as always :) That's sad that all of the leaves have fallen already though... it's the same way here :/ It takes away all of the color, and that's no fun!

    But yes, I saw the thing about them finding the water on the moon! That's just mind bogglingly awesome! And hey, at least they didn't bomb the moon for no reason then, haha...

  2. The first picture of your bus stop is beautiful.
    I can't wait for it to snow either. It's that awkward in-between time of year!

  6. I love these photos! I really adore seeing photos of snow and changing leaves, because I live in Taiwan now and don't get to see those often! I spent part of this weekend in bed, too, recovering from life :-). Hope you feel well rested!

    If you do not like my use I will never sample your images again. Let me know here, thank you. I had wanted to email you for permission.

    You take great photographs and I would like to sample more, always making considerable edits so you are not recognizable, etc. I would also like to link them to your site.

    I do hope you like it - regards.
