Breathe Your Life into Me

If you’ve been here with me since around the time I started this blog, you know that I love to listen to great tunes when I process my work.  Heck, I’d listen to it when I’m out shooting URBEX as well to help me create, but in those environment, I really need to have all my senses available, what with the creaky thin floors I could fall through and the many other creepy sounds I need to be aware of when moving around these decaying locations.  For today’s shot, I listened to the song ‘Breathe into me’, by Red, several times to channel what I needed for this particular piece.  For those interested, you can find the lyrics below the image.  Let me know what you think if either the lyrics or the photograph (or both) resonate with you at all.  Also, if you want to give the song a listen, click here to listen on youtube.

 

“Breathe Into Me”

And this is how it feels when I ignore the words you spoke to me
And this is where I lose myself when I keep running away from you
And this is who I am when, when I don’t know myself anymore
And this is what I choose when it’s all left up to me

Breathe your life into me
I can feel you
I’m falling, falling faster
Breathe your life into me
I still need you
I’m falling, falling
Breathe into me
Breathe into me

And this is how it looks when I am standing on the edge
And this is how I break apart when I finally hit the ground
And this is how it hurts when I pretend I don’t feel any pain
And this is how I disappear when I throw myself away

Breathe your life into me
I can feel you
I’m falling, falling faster
Breathe your life into me
I still need you
I’m falling, falling
Breathe into me
Breathe into me
Breathe into me
Breathe into me

Breathe your life into me
I can feel you
I’m falling, falling faster
Breathe your life into me
I still need you
I’m falling, falling
Breathe into me

Breathe your life into me!
I’m falling, falling faster
Breathe your life into me!
falling, falling, falling
Breathe into me
Breathe into me
Breathe into me
Breathe into me

That Little Red Dot

In my continuing effort to broaden my photographic skill set, I’ve been shooting a little bit of everything, rather than forcing myself to stick with shooting only Urbex.  Today, I decided to see what I could shoot around the house, and I’ll post some of the shots I’ve come away with here on the blog.  Just like I spent some time playing with my 50mm lens recently, I chose, this time, to shoot with my 90mm Macro lens.  This allowed me the chance to look at things much more closely than I usually do, which gave me all sorts of cool ideas.  Instead of wondering what to shoot, I started to see photographic possibilities in almost everything, from the tip of a knife, to the edges of a flower petal.  I might even post some of those later today, but for now I’ll leave you with a shot of my favorite pocket camera, my trusty Leica D-Lux 5.
