Who can resist a solitary tree at the top of a hill??? (I think this might have been a wee bit inspired by Six Feet Under…)
The girl in front of me just sniffed her armpit. She was out dancing last night and drinking and met some guy went back to his place and took off her clothes and did the nasty but they were too drunk for it to be any good and the second time he couldn’t get itContinue reading “The Morning of the Following Day”
Took the train in to the city the other day, thought maybe I’d get some good blur shots or other interesting bits and pieces.
