I'm not usually emotionally attached to movies but any mention of Moonrise Kingdom and I become hyper aware of all these thoughts that whirl around my brain. I know it's not the greatest movie out there and it certainly isn't Wes Anderson's best work but it was the film that got me motivated to watch all of his other movies and I'll always be happy about that. It was also the movie Jean and I went to see on our first offical 'date' so if we're being honest I'm certain that's the real reason it has me all emotions.
Anyways, as soon as I saw this shoot by Vanessa Jackman I was enthralled and lo and behold it was inspired by none other than Moonrise Kingdom.

There is a difference between dreaming of a future apartment and a future home. The one is something that is vaguely realistic according to where I am in my life right now and the other is a complete dream space that seems utterly unattainable but I still can't help myself from wondering. This abode called Sagverket (aka Sawmill) definitely falls into the category of the latter. It's curently being used as a conference space but it could so easily be transformed into a dream home.

In my last year of high school I studied the American civil rights movement in depth. It's always been a fragment of history that has intrigued me. These photographs by Bruce Davidson are still relevant today. Their pertinence and emotional power lies with their depiction of everyday folk.
The period from 1961 - 1965 was the defining era of the American civil rights movement. As a participant and observer of this struggle for racial equality, Bruce Davidson chronicled the demonstrations, the protests, the aftermath of the bombings, and the social and political tumult that arose out of the conflict. "Time of Change" is a testament to the everyday lives of the people who fought against accepted social norms of segregation, poverty, and discrimination.

I'm sure I've mentioned before that in another life I'd love to be a florist. There's something soothing about working with plants. Loose Leaf is a magical new floral studio / plant store that's opened in Melbourne. It's unlike any other florists shop I've seen.
Each from varied backgrounds but connected by a passion for plants, Wona and Charlie are inspired by the therapeutic benefits of connecting with nature.

I'm enamoured by Stella Marie Baer's thoughtful artwork. At first her pieces appear simple but once you realise you've been staring at them, mesmerized, for the past 30 minutes then it becomes obvious they're not so simple. Or rather, their simplicity is equally as inriguing as other artwork. I'd definitely love to get myself a print of those crescent moons.
