I have found myself enamored with photo-stories lately. Taking a picture wearing cute clothes is fun, but an image is so much fuller when it tells a story. Here we have a typical runaway story: the girl looks backwards and forwards and decides to push on. In the end, she finds a little piece of beauty. Perhaps it was what she was looking for, but maybe it was something she had all along.
This photo shoot was built around the little blue suitcase that I found on the sidewalk while going for an evening run. The clasps on it are slightly busted, it was too cute to pass up and I thought it would make an interesting prop.
Socks: Old white socks that I dyed purple
Boots: 1,000 Mile by Wolverine
Suitcase: Curbside find
