WOLVERINE PRIDE







I wish I had photo from my trip to share already...but in the meantime, these are some shots from a roll I got back just before we left. Purple and gold might just be one of my least favorite color combinations (they were also the official colors of my highschool, coincidence?), but this day it felt like they were following me: curtains on 6th St., flowers in the cooler at Sunny's Busy Florist, and my reading material on my lap in a little park somewhere in Alphabet City. Do you ever have days like those, when certain colors seem to pop out at you non-stop?

I quite like purple and gold as a colour combo, though I can see why you wouldn't if they were your school colours!

I love the cover of the book, & Norwegian wood is such a good book !!
There is even a cinema adaptation (but I guess you can only see it in theater in Japan ?!)

I wish you a nice weekend,

love these, esp that last pic which reminds me of a wes anderson screenshot :)

Sally said...

YES. There are always days when I look around, and it seems like 9/10 people are wearing the same color. It's spooky.

I've just finished reading that same edition of Norwegian Wood friday! Isn't it lovely/really sad?

Chantelle said...

These are really lovely photos. Too bad purple and gold had to sporadically appear on your life adventures!

Haha, thank you! And it's ok, I suppose there are worse problems I could have...

I absolutely loved Norwegian Wood. I didn't want it to end! I definitely am curious to see the screen version, I hope it comes out stateside soon. Glad I read the book first though.

I need to re-read Norwegian Wood. Read it a few years ago for school and still claim it as one of my favorite books. I need to read some more Murakami, I hear they're all good. I feel in love with all the quirky characters.
