woooooo eeee! 
 week two. 
post ten.

good afternoon all,

i hope each of you had a superb weekend. 

i continue, 
to receive grand feedback about this series! 
i am delighted that all of you are enjoying this procession! 
 it has been delightful for me, to create these visions and share them with you.

to all of my subjects... 
when you view your posts i hope that you are able to understand that these photos are a direct vision in how i see you. 
and what i think of you. 
my hope, is that, my words resonate and stay with you.  
sort of like, a positive "sticky note" highlighting how fantastic i think you are.
allowing you to see the components of your personality that i have picked up on. 
and what gravitates me to you.

it has always been very important to me that i never use working models. 
every person that has ever been featured on CH has been a "real" person. 
for me, i want to use my medium 
(that medium being photos)
 to express and highlight people from everywhere. 
people i know. 
great people doing seemingly simple things with their existence on this planet. 

it is my belief, that in the mundane aspects of the human existence lay the more interesting and appealing details. 

subject ten is
karen. 

karen and i work together at a restaurant on college street. 
from the moment she started her employment there, i have always been excited to see her daily ensembles. 
she has some of the most fascinating fashion sense i have ever, had the privilege of witnessing. 

some of her wardrobe is very risque. 
some of her wardrobe is cool.
most of her wardrobe is very weird. 
and weird in the most delightful way possible. 

all of this to say... 
karen is one of those rare birds that can take items and make them her own. 
to me, 
she is a true fashionista. 
(side note: i think that the term "fashionista" is thrown around too loosely in the art world.)

karen, has the foresight, to put together outfits that feature ALL aspects of her personality. 
she is not a label whore. 
a brand whore. 
or a style whore.
she does her own thing always! 

in my opinion, this is a hard trait to achieve. 
and my hope is that she sees how special this ability is. 
to rise above what everyone else is doing,
 and be herself. 

karen, 
please don't ever change. 
i personally, 
need people like you, 
to show me it is okay (and awesome) to let my weird side out. 
let my freak flag fly! 
and 
i thank you for that. 
you are not my entertainment you are my inspiration. 

bye for now
