Enrique Metinides, Mexico City, April 29, 1979
Metinides photographed crime scenes in Mexico for over 50 years. This photograph, in particular, speaks a thousand words. This woman was a famous journalist on her way to a release party for one of her books. Two cars crashed, ran over her, and killed her. Nonetheless, her make up remains intact and her eyes seem to be staring sadly, but almost dreamingly at the skies. Absolutely stunning.
Okay you know how you wish you could turn things around?? Well it can never happen. Time does not turn around. You can’t go back to that feeling. That moment everything felt so right. When you would just be together without the need of explanation. I just need that security sometimes. Just tell me what we have the chance to be. Take me on a date. Actually accept one of my invitations to be together. Let me be all of myself around. That has yet to happen, my shell is quite decorated.. but whats under lays a saturated soul wanting to feel amorous. Just let yourself go.. do you always have the berlin wall up. What are you protecting an evil? It angles my mind to wonder why hide these things? Who have you hurt? Are you ashamed of the pain?
