Picture #9: Isolated

Isolated. Played around with some jewelry and I thought this was cute. It’s actually an earring that I lost the counterpart for, so it was isolated in that it had to pair, and I stuck it at the front and it made for a good picture.

From the beginning, the … Continue reading

And that’s exactly what you get with Martin Scorsese’s GoodFellas, a film that uses a strong visual style to chronicle the life of young boy turned gangster Henry Hill. Wanting … Continue reading
