Dear Diary



I love this photography series titled Dear Diary by Karolina Karlic, which was featured on The 20x200 Blog. The work is based on the ideas of desire and regret, and inspired by the classifieds section, 'Missed Connections', on Craigslist. In this section people anonymously post recollections of what may have been, or a special moment or connection that was unforuntatly missed.

So, Dear Diary this weekend I will:

1. Finish this Tootsie Roll Pop (got the Indian and star on the wrapper - yay good luck!)
2. Attend the Centerfest on Saturday.
3. Take more photographs.
4. Laugh and learn.
5. Make a better effort.
6. Love and be loved.

Happy weekend everyone...

I love the idea behind this series!

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

I should have read this on Friday, maybe I would have gotten some of your motivation! I didn't do a whole lot.....hope you accomplished these things :o)

paisleystclaire said...

I adore that first image. Makes me feel like its 1982 again.

Bonbon Oiseau said...

lovely--and I love your weekend resolutions...(I do that too but usually in the beginning of the month or a new season--your are so sweet though, always about becoming the person you want to be)

jae said...

Love that you got the Indian and the star. I had always heard you received a prize when you got them on the wrapper, so when I was a kid, I wrote and asked. I got a nice response letter that they basically had no idea what I was talking about.

sherri said...

love those images, what a great idea, thanks for posting them.

Jessie Cacciola said...

oh, me too -- i love her work! hope you enjoyed the weekend! :)
