The Wish Bracelet.

Some photographers are superstitious and some aren't. []

i tend to fall into the former rather than the latter, there's magic in every shot if you do it right guys.

following on that tradition, i made a prayer bracelet that was shown to me many many years ago by a friend that used to travel to Brazil quite a bit.

you write your pyaer or wish on a strip of cloth and tir it to your wrist, and do the same on another strip of cloth and tie it to a tree.

when both strips have fallen off, your prayer will be answered.


i made one of these tonight, and tied it to the strap of my camera where the ribbon was tied on.

a good friend of mine gave me that ribbon the night before i left kentucky to move back to florida and it's been on for almost a year and a half, ever since.

it's a new era though, and since i can't wear home made bracelets with the line of work that i'm doing right now, i figured there was no better place to put it than my camera's strap.

i'll put the second strip on a tree at the end of the world after i see Bon Iver [] tomorrow.

bea [] got the idea from me and she alread did hers without me, blah.

I really like the first shot. My wish had a whole lot more words but said the same exact thing.

Bon Iver and romantic superstitions at the end of the world sounds amazing. : )
