A Softer World: 975

When I look back on my early blogging days, I can remember one of my very first posts being about A Softer World. I’m glad that this blog is still alive because I enjoy revisiting it and seeing how the dark comics have transformed over the years. The creators behind it are doing incredible work in a very minimalistic way. I encourage you to see all of their work here.

A Collection Part 35

It used to take me over six months to go back to a blog that I haven’t visited in a while. With my new routine and schedule and the absence of homework, I am able to get through my blogs a lot quicker which frees up more time for me to be creative and to spend more time on posts that mean a lot to me instead of just posting and being done with it. Most of the photographs in this A Collection post came from one blog and go figure it’s called Thriving Twenties so of course we can relate hence why we love it.

A Collection Part 32

This post is being released today because Veronica reminded me that I was overdue. Something you need to know: she asks for these posts often, but I usually don’t give in because I need to have a specific amount of photos for me to warrant a post. This time, she was right on the money hence…

A Collection Part 30

A Softer World

Happy spring readers! We’re long overdue for a Collection post so I thought I would leave you with one before I embark on the rest of my spring break venturing for the week. It’s definitely shorter than usual, but still packed with pretty pictures. I wanted to kick off this collection post with a comic from one of my favorite sites, A Softer World. Together, they are the perfect combination of beautiful photography and witty thoughts.

Enjoy!

A Collection Part 27

Happy happy middle of October everyone! I hope you’ve all had a lovely and relaxing weekend so far. For the first time in my life yesterday, I spent the afternoon out on a boat in Puget Sound with some wonderful company. Hard to believe that I’ve never actually done that before – clearly I’m not getting the most out of Seattle by living here. There’s no theme to this collection post this time, but it’s been a month since we’ve last seen one and I like this group so much. I’m kind of in this limbo right now of college and the realĀ  world that begins after college (that I thought began at college.) And I’m going to be here for a few months I’m sure so I’ve been attracted to photos recently that involve a single person. That’s really the only explanation I have for that.

A Collection Part 26

As I was laying in my deathbed the other day recovering from Bumbershoot, five feet away from me Veronica shouted “KATIE! COLLECTION POST! When are you going to change your header?” I’m not sure if many of you realized this by now, but Veronica is one of the few people I listen to when it comes to Yow Yow. Oh and I also listened to Evan when he told me the other day that my Foster the People rant was “SO HIPSTER,” which made me so self-conscious that I decided to delete it altogether.

The road to recovering from Bumbershoot has been steady, but has obviously set me back a little bit. On top of that, I’ve also gotten some new hardware! YEAH! So I’m busy making transfers and starting fresh all over again. It’s safe to say that at this point, Yow Yow! will no longer be doing 17 posts a day as summer comes to an end. That’s right – it’s finally hitting me, but what an incredible last summer this has been for me. I am grateful to have had this opportunity to spend time with my family and friends and to actually have time to focus on myself more than ever. That’s not meant to sound selfish at all. Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am usually MIA throughout the school year (unless they work with me/have classes w/ me) because I am constantly on the go. For once, I got to experience what it was like to have absolutely nothing on my plate. I even got bored a few times – most likely during the time I spent writing those 17 posts.

Anyways, since I won’t be doing much posting over the next couple of days, I thought I would do a Collection post for all of you to enjoy!

A Collection Part 24

Happy summer everyone! This collection post revolves around several themes this time around including youth and celebrating gay pride. Last week, we celebrated pride in Seattle and the rainbow flag is still hanging up in nearly every other business around here! Also – since it’s been three months since the last collection post, the pictures have accumulated so when I originally started working on this, I had close to 200 pictures in one post. Not wanting to freeze your computers from loading all of them, I’ve decided to split it. There are 100 pictures in this post and in another week I will post A Collection Part 25. Hopefully this is easier for all of you to see, but you’ll also be getting another one in a week as opposed to waiting three months again!

Have a happy Fourth of July everyone!

Goodbye J.D. Sallinger

“What really knocks me out is a book, when you’re all done reading it, you wished the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.” – Catcher in the Rye

:(

Another day, another author gone. Catcher in the Rye is one of my favorite books! I remember reading this book for english in high school and loving Holden’s witty and sarcastic remarks. In fact, many of the lines in the book sound like were written for A Softer World – my favorite photography comic website. Today, the famous author passed away. J.D. Sallinger, thank you for all of your work. You will be missed.

How Fierce It Felt to Fly

asofterworld1-12_22_08

Emily Horne and Joey Comeau created A Softer World, a site where she takes the picture and he makes up the comics. They’re actually pretty funny I would recommend you check it out. But this one sparked something in particular – a playoff on “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. I just remember spending nearly a month on this poem during english class this year and I think every time I’m reminded of this I think of my teacher and analyzing this poem until no more could be done.

I’m still editing photos trying to get everything ready for the end of the year. Things are going along pretty well though, the snow gives me lots of time to do whatever I have to get done.
