This past weekend I went to the deep ellum market and then thrifting all around Dallas with my friends… My two favorite local stores I found were We Are 1976 and the Gypsy Wagon (both on Henderson.) They each had an eclectic mix of cool stationary, trinkets & camera love. Everything was oh-so pretty but also oh-so expensive.. Still it’s always fun to look & dream.

“Life is full of these magical moments with unique characters which can often can be lost because it belonged to a space in time which is quicker than an eye but luckily isn’t quicker than a camera. It’s fascinating to be able to capture these moments and bare witness to them, especially when the world around you talks so grey, as if there is no magic or uniqueness.”
(just liked this. I read it at LostatEminor about Leann Carter’s work. seems to relate.)
