erica shire

so clearly, i am obsessed with photography lately and have been posting a lot of it. this has a point, which hopefully i can reveal pretty soon. but until then, i’ll just keep tacking up my favorite images from the vault. the exciting part about becoming obsessed with something is that you start becoming pickier about it—i like the feeling that develops of knowing what does and doesn’t work. your judgment stays just as rapid, but it’s not based completely on the visceral. it’s like having a very informed gut.

and with that, my gut would love to take pictures like erica shire (see below), if i ever did the whole road-trip-through-rural-america thing. if my snaps turned out half this good, i’d be lucky.
