I took my Polaroid camera with me this weekend on my various outings, and this is how one of the photos turned out. Completely blue. Some weird underexposure thing I guess. (I was trying to take pictures of flowering trees.)
The color makes me think of the French film Blue, starring Juliette Binoche. I noticed that several of my blogging girlfriends have the movie listed as one of their favorites. (It’s one of mine too.) What is it about that film that resonates so much with women?
“I think Blue is a kind of essay on a woman’s intrinsic power to rediscover hereself in the emotional chaos of total loss. It’s an enduring tribute to the power of the feminine. . .plus she’s lovely to look at.”
