First Assignment  
My first assignment was to photograph "keeping busy"...

I was thinking about ways that people keep themselves busy, to distract them. This photo was based on the postsecret website as well as the postsecret community. I remember reading something someone had posted anonymously, someone had said the only way they can get themselves through their day was thinking of ways to kill themself. That was their way of keeping themself busy, even though they probably never would actually kill themselves.

I did not stand on the end of the building because I wanted it to symbolize how the person does not want to kill themselves or commit to it, but the thought is with them every day.
The windows to me seem like people could be living inside the building with the curtains and such, and yet it has a very isolated feel to it, like how I imagine the person this is based on never told anyone how they get through their day, and feels isolated.

Thank you. I love postsecret, I look at it every sunday.

I really like the lines a lot too, with the bricks and stuff.
I'm glad you like it ^_^
