Hey there UwearTday (i’m obvi running outta nickname ideas)
I am SO sorry this is grotesquely late. I just got a new job a couple weeks ago so I’ve been a bit busy with all m’gigs!
Anyway: This photo is a recreation of this still from the movie The Reader. This movie is so romantic (in the beginning), they aren’t supposed to be together, and she moves away without telling him. I love how quickly and deeply they fall in love, and it’s not the most morally stable relationship, a little toxic, but it’s so beautiful. Here’s a quote from the protagonist, Michael:
I don’t know what to say. I’ve never been with a woman before. We’ve been together four weeks, and I can’t live without you. I can’t. Even the thought of it kills me.
It’s so desperate and it reminds me of the way I used to love. I couldn’t picture my life without this one guy, and it was so unhealthy the way he kept cutting off communication, leaving town without telling me. I don’t regret it because now (a couple years later) I love in a much healthier way.
Hope you’re doin well, girl!
I saw that movie years ago in a little theater. It is such a simple photograph, but you captured it perfectly. This is also the second Kate Winslet inspired submission of the day, which is not surprising haha. I really love how this isn’t particularly colorful. AWESOME AS USUAL.
