Capturing Sunset | Rainbow | Bubbles


*****

Years ago, I fell in love with sunset. So beautiful, it's painful. Watching the tail of the sun setting down in the horizon feels like enjoying a glass of white wine over a melancholic jazzy music. Now and then I try to hang it right there, right at the most beautiful moment when the golden edge showers the earth with pure golden shade before night creeps in.

When I was so much younger, I was this little girl falling in love with the rainbow. Sweet and colorful at the same time; just like thin transparent candy owned by children of the heaven. It's presence always be a pleasant surprise. There are days of longing for the rainbow after a heavy rain, or in a sunny drizzle. In days when I miss my love the most, I'll try to meet him by pouring fresh water toward the sun using water hose.

Today, the rainbow is captured in bubbles and  the sunset frozen on my tights. Well, hello my love ones.. meeting you, my heart flies a little.

Burtonesque by Heart


*****

Naaah.. I'm not referring Burtonesque as the theme of this photo shoot (just yet..that's something I really want to do anyway).. it's more like being Burtonesque by heart. 

You know.. like.. being this cherry merry girl in spring-y tulip dress who enjoy stepping on a rubber-duck until it quacked and squeezed out of shape. A girl who preserve her puddle in mercury and paint it in pink, dragged it around, spray some sweet tender fragrant around its dead body and cram a pebble into its little mouth to keep it cutely open. 

Wearing a furry earmuff in the hottest day of spring just to stay in her solitude~ out of all the sound of the wild wide world. And just so you know, that earmuff might be made of eight little hamster's fur on each side, skinned alive using an apple knives, sewed carefully using the prettiest needle available. Eight living hamsters in each side of the earmuff.

She loves to keep the rainbow in a bubble as her precious hostage, just for herself. Never let anyone else enjoy its beauty. Not to mention her innocent happy smile as she skin the hamster, preserve little pets, and squeeze all the cutest thing under her heels.

Not Burtonesque enough for you? 

Well.. do watch all his darkly humorous and romantic movie and do read this book by Tim Burton: The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories. And welcome to the world where Melon Boy's head stepped on into pieces, the world where a girl won a stare competition, or get disturbed by The Boy with Nails in His Eyes (even just by its title, no?)

Then, tell me, how Burtonesque are you?
