Introduction: Melly from Greenlaundry
Cats, food and film. It's very rare I find someone that loves and lives those three words that I can resonate with more. When I think of Melly from Greenlaundry, those are the first three words that come to mind.
I've always believed a good photographer who takes pictures of food will make you hungry and almost crave the scent, taste and texture of the dish. When a photographer takes a photo of her animal, you can see the personality of the animal. I also have a soft spot for people who still use analog film. I realized I am completely in awe of Melly when I found myself hungry again when looking at her photos with a full stomach. I found myself wondering if I know Fatboy more than my Zelda from her photos. Her analog prints are admirable and can stand on their own, but i love all of Melly's photography.
You may know Melly from Greenlaundry but I want to take the extra step to get to know her. I feel like every photo makes me be there and she makes me a part of her activities. Her love for cats, whimsical fashion, delicious food and old cameras I discovered are not even half of what we have in common. Read on...
What makes this my favourite is that it turned out looking completely different from what i saw through the lens when i took this photo. I want to be in this photo, but i can't. I want my mood, my bathing suit, the book i'm possibly reading to match the mood of this photo. Too bad for me, the magic's in the film.
Also, this photo doesn't say much, you can breathe it in, think back to the last time you smelled salty water and had sand in your shoes, smile to yourself and have a good day. It's a little like me i think, i don't like to say much or prove a point.
