We are all Peculiars~AGPS

HIYA. I'm back. :) 
I hope you all had a wonderfully splendid holiday season. :)

This photoshoot was inspired by a book I've been reading.
It's called Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
Oh my goodness, it is so good.  One of the main character's names is Emma, and she is described as a teenage girl with curly blonde hair. She always wears a white dress. When I saw this dress in the girls' clothing I knew I had to do this photoshoot. The book is a combination of photos and writing, so I thought some of the photos from my film camera that didn't turn out so well would be perfect to use. The book is not a picture book though; it's like the pictures are tied into the writing. The characters are constantly referring to photos that were taken. 
The weird thing is that all of the photos taken are really strange. And they were all photos that the author actually found. Real photos. 

Anyway, just an interesting bit of info. I totally recommend reading it. Plus, I've heard there is going to be a Tim Burton film based on it. So think Nightmare Before Christmas Style. :D

Before I sign off, I have a quick question for you all. Now that June has left, I'm not so sure how much I want to continue with this blog. I do not want to give up blogging about American Girl quite yet, so I want to ask your opinion.
Should I transfer it to Writings and have it be a blog that covers it all? Or should I make a completely new one based on AG? I am indecisive, so I thought I would ask you all what you thought. 
Have a great rest of your weekend!
P.S. I forgot to tell you, but I bought my mom's D40 from her! She wanted to get a new camera, so she agreed to sell the Nikon to me. We got the dirt off of the mirrors FINALLY. I am so in love with it!
