With That Wanderlust You Fight

I was looking through some of the film I shot while in Japan. Big mistake. Now I keep thinking about going back, in the spring, for the cherry blossoms. It is quite unrealistic. But the vision persists.

The photographs did remind me of how atmospheric I used to be with my shots. I framed all the pictures of friends (and strangers) with whatever elements were about: branches, windows, etc. There were always these blurred foreground shapes and objects that added depth to the portraits. So, here I am experimenting with that element again.

Outfit details:
H&M shirt
Walmart tights
Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace
Bloch wedges via Giltfuse

  1. i love that second shot! and may i say, having read your blog on google reader for the longest time, that the blog itself is quite gorgeous!
    the background is lovely.

  2. Ooooh mysterious branches... mystery, hauntings... ha ha. I like the way your tights subtly match your top. And red lips, red bow necklace. Lovely!

    A very charming outfit (and post in general!). For some reason, you look like a character in a storybook...

    Random: I think the red bow in your outfit drew my eyes to the red sunglasses Nasha is wearing in the icon on the right... which made me immediately wonder: What has Nasha been doing lately? ;)

    I hope you have a whimsical day!

  4. Hi beauty, these pictures are beautiful, and in particular, the fourth picture is stunning--I love the hazy background, it reminds me of some of the early shots from the movie, The Tin Drum (which I feel like I've mentioned before on your blog!)

    I just read through some of my old journals from when I lived in Romania and France and I was also am filled with a longing to go back that seems near impossible! What to do...

  8. Now I'm pining for cherry blossoms as well. As a consolation, I will admire the garbage bag stuck in the tree branches outside my living room window.

  9. Beautiful. Makes me want to find some woods around here, the biggest downside to living in the city.

  15. I love the necklace, so cute! and you are lucky you've been to Japan!! one of the top things to do before I die is to visit Japan in the Spring to see the cherry blossoms ^.^

    ReplyDelete
  16. I adore that nail polish! What is it called? And I think these photos are beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. These photos are so beautiful. I love the dream-like quality your images have.

  18. Love all the polka-dots. I always love polka-dots, everywhere!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. yay for polka dots! and the framing definitely adds an air of mystery...

    ReplyDelete
  20. i adore your outdoor/treesy outfit posts! They add a nice ethereal quality to your pics, like the branches and dry grasses make me feel all nostalgic, especially when you do your great all black outfits with pops of color. So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the feel of depth that the branches give. You look lovely by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would love to see some of your outfits surrounded by Cherry blossom but I do realise that asking you to fly to Japan may a little bit too much! Fantastic post, I can almost hear some kind of haunting melody playing in the background as I look at these.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the way you photographed these, it's so creative, but doesn't distract from the outfit (which by the way is also amazing!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. these photos are beautiful! i like the blurred elements- i always love that in photos even if it is technically 'wrong' sometimes. but you're always a very good photographer!

    oh, and the bow and polka dot combo in your outfit is adorable. ~joelle

    ReplyDelete
  25. Gorgeous photos, as always. You take some of the best outfit pics I've seen, darling! Which nail polish is that, by the way? You've got so many pretty ones - perhaps you could start listing them as well as the actual clothes you are wearing? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would appreciate it :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love the dress! The pattern of the buttons are really in right now...I dig it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am a big fan of twiggy trees and branches...love these shots! and that dress is adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  33. adorable outfit. that necklace is so cute!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Really?
    Its only been two days?
    Oh, then excuse my rubbish time telling, this is why I don't wear a watch. Pointless.

  35. I love these pictures of you! You always have an artistic perspective in your photographs, but these are quite exquisite.

    The first one is my favorite <3

    I tend to loose track of my original ideas when doing an outfit shoot, and all of those creative plans just get lost in an effort to get a decent picture :p That said; it is very cold here on Norway now. Maybe spring will get better :)

  55. These are really wonderful, almost cinematic. The color contrasts are so striking! Also those shoes are rapidly becoming one of my favorites of yours. :D

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love all of the pictures, but the second and fourth ones are my favorites.

    I admire how you frame your shots, and how you use so many natural elements. If I were to try to climb trees or pose amongst branches in nice clothes, I'd doubtlessly fall into a tangle of brambles or snag myself on something pointy.

  57. I knew I spotted a Marc Jacobs necklace, its adorable.

  63. Rebecca, the very first shot is so artistic that if I could I would frame it for the feature wall in my room.

    I am a dedicated reader always. Take care.

  65. That first one looks very Japan-esque. I love the branches in the foreground.

    Which part of Japan were you in? I bet you could get some beautiful fashion shots with the cherry blossoms in Kyoto or thereabouts. Just try to avoid the drunken blossom viewers if you do go!

    ReplyDelete
  66. You never cease to amaze me so much. I love the pictures so much. I love the form of that dress and that necklace is so adorable! You are one true inspiration. Love it! Now if I ever see cherry blossom trees I am going to think back of this post! Haha

  69. I love your dress! And the idea of adding depth to your shots is great. I take my own photographs to go along with my stories when I'm reporting and I'll try to see if I can do some framing next time I'm in a cool store or some other place.

  88. I love your photoshoots, they're always so scenic and fairytale-like!

    My friend recently reminded me to look through the photos I took in Japan again, and all it did was make me reminisce about those fun times and having an urge to go back there and take better pictures; not a good thing when I'm in the way of a final year project! XDD

  100. The framing and soft focus are genius.

    I really do love the things you come up with.

    And your hair is getting silky and long. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I always enjoy looking at your pictures, they're very whimsical, simple, and lovely! It also helps me out when it comes to my own photography, gathering ideas and looking at different aspects.

    What nail polish are you wearing?

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love how you don't wear black all that often, but when you do, you still manage to make the look romantic. The right amount of details and pops of color do just the trick..!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I'm entranced by this idea. The branches make for an ethereal touch. I think this is one of your best photo shoots yet...

    ReplyDelete
  104. you should totally go to japan again, i know you would enjoy yourself so much and take such gorgeous captures. im not helping am i? haha the last time i went there was like 7 years ago for an exchange program, i didnt really appreciate it as i should. so i would really love to go again, especially during the cherry blossoms :)
