12 claires

*I thought I exposed and ruined a roll while still in my camera so Brandon clicked away. turns out the film was just fine :)

I've been teaching my elementary students about visual stories; that we can communicate emotions and experiences without using any words at all. A concern they often have is "how can we tell the whole story in just one picture?" I respond with "sometimes you can't. So draw another!" There is something so nice about a theme carried out or repeated. a series. There is something nice about same but a little different.

also, since writing the title "12 claires", I kept getting songs with numbers stuck in my head. So I decided to curate a numerical playlist. Bowie makes a few appearances (he and classic 89, the only radio station I listen to...or know, have been my soundtrack to and from school the past 6 weeks). And six is a bit of a stretch, but hey. and then theres nine & eleven...let me know of any good songs with "nine" or "eleven" in them. enjoy! (and sorry for no links, a little google search never hurt nobody).
