Something like love

Anne Collier: Another look at photography

Posted in Fine Art, Photography, Statement by linhdy on February 5, 2010

Anne Collier is a Los Angeles native who makes us eerily aware of the art of photography. There’s not blurring realism here– what we are looking at is definitely a photograph. And somehow, it comes off a little creepier than if we just believe in the false charades and continued with business as usual. Instead, she makes us look at the photograph, the process, and the message.

Through Collier eyes, photography is just a sterile means of reproduction…or is it?

At last, my love has come along!

Posted in About, Love, Photography, Pretty things, Statement by linhdy on January 18, 2010

I find so many amazing, creative & beautiful things! I just wanted to collect them & share them with the world. Look forward to being privy to many discoveries as I scour the internet for sights both seen & unseen; hope you can join me.

I am alive; this is the evidence!

What does “Something like love” mean?
What is love? People say they are in love. They get married. Then they fall out of love. I don’t get it. Doesn’t love last forever? Maybe love changes. It’s sad nothing lasts forever.

I have never been in love. I don’t really know what it means.

Whatever it is, I am searching for that everlasting love. I want to collect things that make me feel alive. I want to collect things that speak to something greater than the material world. That or just shiny objects.

I want to collect these shiny objects and put them in a digital treasure trove– so that I can return and savor them. “Something like love” refers to my collection of things I love. Or something like love. If it’s not love– it’s the next best thing.

This blog is a work in progress, always. I am in search for love– and I am willing to put myself out there. I am taking a chance. I will be that ugly tree. I don’t have any expectations– than to be nothing.
