On Board Upper Deck

It pained me greatly to settle on such a title for this. After about ten digital tear-page-out-of-notebook-and-crumple-up moments (aka the delete key), I pulled this at whim into the title that shall represent this fair post forever. She was one of the few, like myself, not in traditional Halloween garments in the car, so that’s the origin of it.

The titles I use here generally aren’t the actual titles I’d give the image. They’re more of a label for the blog post at large, a literary element so to speak. The hook that shall bring you to your knees in utter enthrallment, both hands gripping the edges of your monitor like your life depends on it as you unwillingly salivate and release primitive rainforesty sounds into your living room that startle your neighbors.


So it’s another spur of the moment willing-participant portrait. And by spur of the moment I mean I fidgeted around most of the hour long train ride trying to figure out how to politely get her attention and introduce my proposition without blathering too much.

Maybe I won’t even talk about the image itself. I love it (the image).
