Abandoned Love

Abandoned Love’ is a participatory photo series in which I had people from all over the world (Australia, UK, USA) on Tumblr send me private thoughts, diary entries, text messages, etc to which I then created into banners and placed on abandoned buildings. This project was inspired by Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher’s Learning to Love You More and Klaudija Visockyte’s Please Don’t Leave Me series; Also I would like to credit Anna Ladd’s things i told the internet but didn’t tell my mom because it is similar to this project, so if you like ‘Abandoned Love’ then you should definitely check out those projects too. – Peyton Fulford

Help Grandpa

 

“A few years ago Grandpa had to go into a home. It’s such a sad horrible thing that happens to many of us but he needed full-time care. We all pitched in to help clean up his family home after he left. I was lucky enough to find the box of slides in the cupboard and have been talking about them ever since. I got the slides scanned and took them down to show him in the hope of some of those special Grandpa stories. And to give him more to talk about than catheter bags and who gave him a shower that day. He was happy to see them but he couldn’t remember where any of the locations were. He appreciated that I liked them but never really believed that the photos are something special. He never saw himself as a great Photographer. With everyone’s help I’m hoping to prove that wrong.”

“This site has 100 of the best slides that were found in that cupboard. I have included some of the family slides, mainly as many of those are great. The hope is simply that people will appreciate them and share them making him, if only in my book, great at one more thing. Please email if you recognise any of the locations in the photos. Everything will be mapped and with the help of Google Maps/streetview I’m sure we’ll find most of them. Also, It would be great to see what these places look like today. If you live near any of the locations please take a picture of the same spot and it will be featured on the site. Thanks for taking the time to look through the photos and please send them around.

Thank You.”

Bangs

So bangs, the do or don’t. I love the I hate them.

I’ve had bangs twice before and they look great when you have newly washed hair, the second day not so good. And who has time to wash their hair ever day? Isn’t it bad for you? (Apparently you can? Big news everyone, no more planing ahead with what day to shower to make you look good as many days as possible!)

But don’t they feel like a winter thing? They go great with a hat, make you’re forhead warm and they look good messy (hello post-beanie-hair)

But in the summer? You are constantly sweaty and hot, it feels like you would have them licked to you’re forhead constantly. With the sexy I haven’t washed my hair in forever and you can really see it look.

Ugh, but look at them. Don’t they look great? (Well at least on her!)

I just want to look bangin’ (heheh pun intended)
