Christina Mallet's These Photos Make Me Think This...

Hiya Everybody! Thanks for checking in here to see some captivating and creative images from my scouring of the #littlebellows Instagram feed!

I've waxed a lot of sentimental down below and I'm also put in some links to music that the images remind me of.

Also, there are two ladies featured today, long-time contributors to the #littlebellows feed, that I interviewed and featured way back when I started  writing here.

Their work continuously resonates with me and I'm sure it will for you too--they are Kirsty Larmour and Leah Donaldson.

Congrats to all the featured photographers!

Have a great rest of the week!





Every time I see this boy's face my eyes widen.

He is quite possibly the most beautiful lad I have ever seen.

That, and his mom is a rock star photog who makes poetic portraits.



I chuckled.

Somebody put them up to this or they are just having a really bad day.

Either way I love this photo.

It could be a postcard.

How would you caption it?IMG_0372


Here are some seriously good genes and a really beautiful portrait.

I love the pose and the calm in their eyes.



Baby blossom.

Sandy shot this blind folded and with her hands tied behind her back, because she really is that good.

Kidding, but really, how perfect is this?IMG_0374


Yes! The Tutu project is one of my all time favorite series!

If you are wondering what I'm talking about check out the feed of Ms. Leahk8donaldson.

Also, I featured her long ago here, which gives you some insight into her tutu project.IMG_0375


Pretty grassy posy and a beautiful image.

I love the clever use of low contrast in black and whites.

It's softer and gentler.IMG_0377


What is she dancing to? I wonder.

I love the turn of her ankle and the twirl of her dress.

It's timeless but I keep hearing 1950s music so maybe it is of an era.

Love the off center of her.IMG_0378


I keep hearing music in my head today and this one makes me think of bag pipes.

I can also smell the briny sea air and I feel a little bit cold.

I love the top third horizon line and that the gal is below it. IMG_0379


I don't know where this or what is going on here but I love the mystery.

I have music on my mind so here I am hearing the Twin Peaks theme song.

Anyway, I like this image, it's haunting.



And this image needs this song, which I'm slightly obsessed with lately.

I love the dark enveloping her, yet she is so light.

Is she inviting us in?

This could be an album cover.



This is one of those images that I think would look so cool as a collage with one of the black and white photos above.

There's a lot of chaos here and a mix of lines and movement and I'm drawn to it.



Kirsty Larmour is the bravest most adventurous person I have never met, but want to.

Her images are magical and day dream invoking--this one is all that.

A while back I did an interview of Kirsty--the photos she submitted for that feature are forever etched in my mind--I hope you'll check that feature out here. IMG_0384


This image is just about everything.

It is stunningly beautiful.

I can't stop looking at it and I also can't stop thinking about it.

It can mean so many things--all of them beautiful and some of them sad, but forever human.
