    Number 14 gave me spooky AHS: Coven feelings. Lovely, lovely, lovely photos.

    magical. look up the song “here before” by vashti bunyan if you haven’t heard it already!

    • Eleanor October 30th, 2013 7:35 AM

  • alesssurprise October 29th, 2013 7:37 PM

    Was 11 inspired by the painting Christina’s World, by Andrew Wyeth? :)

    • Eleanor October 30th, 2013 7:38 AM

      indeed it was!

      here’s a sneaky weird fact that i kind of want to share… the photo is actually a combination of two photos – i took a photo with the house there many years ago. it was my favourite house in the village where i live, every time i passed it i got this strange feeling… i went back to take this photo, but found the house had burned down. so i took the photo of myself there without it and combined the two. so it’s actually two photos, one from the past and one from pretty much now.

        I love that painting, and this photo! Where was no.3 taken? It looks like the kind of place I should be spending more time …

    you two are the cutest

  • Chloe22 October 29th, 2013 9:30 PM

    This….geez. 17 is the best. I’ve always had a soft spot for dried plants.

  • Alex S. October 29th, 2013 9:39 PM

    Eleanor always gets it right.

  • ladyjenna October 29th, 2013 9:50 PM

    I learned about palimpsest from michael chrichtons timeline, which goes down as like the thousandth cool and significant thing ive learned from pulp fiction

  • Tyknos93 October 29th, 2013 10:14 PM

    Just yes. Yes to all. http://blazoningpens.blogspot.com/

  • rockwrenroll October 29th, 2013 10:15 PM

    17 is my favorite as well, but oh man, these are WONDERFUL

  • Rebdomine October 30th, 2013 2:09 AM

    absolutely stunning! this is probably one of the best rookie shoots i’ve ever seen

  • sissiLOL October 30th, 2013 3:53 AM

    I love these! The pictures are so fantastic!

  • elliecp October 30th, 2013 4:06 AM

    These are really awesome. Love the idea of a series of self portraits <3


  • Mary the freak October 30th, 2013 5:28 AM

    absolutely amazing.


  • TessAnnesley October 30th, 2013 5:50 AM

    Aaahhhh so haunting and beautiful – they remind me of so many things (like Vermeer paintings or Malick stills or whatever) but they’re totally their own style too OMG ELEANOR YOUR TALENT KILLS ME

    And now to veer from heart-deep to silly: so Robbie’s a looker. Nice catch. (If he is in fact Ya Boy, I assume so)

  • Zoe October 30th, 2013 5:59 AM

    These are sooooo gorgeous

  • Nobre October 30th, 2013 7:17 AM

  • julalondon October 30th, 2013 12:27 PM

    Those are BRILLIANT! You are a true artist!!

  • pizzaface October 30th, 2013 3:48 PM

    Woah, really beautiful!
    And I think the deja-vu theme is very well featured, especially in 2#, #3, #8 and #9 :)

  • darksideoftherainbow October 30th, 2013 7:35 PM

    beautiful. GORGEOUS photos. number 11 has given me a lot of inspiration. the outfit is gorgeous and all the land around it has me itching to go hiking. thank you thank you thank you!!

  • gretagreta October 31st, 2013 1:14 AM

    WOW Eleanor, I just went through all of these about three times. So beautiful and magical; I can see that there are stories behind it all. Very inspiring…bookmarking! <3

    oh my gosh, those pictures are exceedingly amazing !!

    i love especially number 17 – the colour, the contrast and the dreaminess, it’s just so divine !!
