Things are so rarely what they seem.
- Vanessa Ives, Penny Dreadful.

This is one of my favourite fandoms! It had everything- vampires, witches, Frankenstein, werewolves, demons & monsters! It also perfectly captured the dark & macabre obsessions of the Victorian era. QOTD: Which fandoms are you part of?

There are no bad pictures; that's just how your face looks sometimes. - Abraham Lincoln.
x
Despite a house renovation that meant staying with my parents, I managed to get a few pics taken like this one. As you can see, my mum collects vintage knick knacks as much as I do! She definitely influenced me growing up teaching me to love old & unusual things instead of new, mass produced stuff. QOTD: Who influenced you growing up?

I would have loved to have taken a themed post with green books or something but I haven't stopped all day so no time! Instead you get one of my stock images! lol Do you take multiple shots & save them up? Or do you just take a new one each day? 
I like to have a little file of images for emergencies so if I get stuck in work or something, I can still post!

You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star. - Nietzsche.

I have been experimenting with a slightly darker aesthetic lately & I'm loving the results. What do you guys think? Do you guys change up your aesthetic every now & then too? I think it's natural for our pictures & to grow & change as much as we do! 
x
Speaking of a dark aesthetic, how stunning is this print by @caitlinmccarthyart ? I am in love with her hauntingly beautiful images! I had the honour of collaborating with her on a project a little while ago- head to my blog to give it a read (link in bio).
