You too can travel to the Center of the World! It’s about ten minutes outside the Arizona / California border in a town called Felicity, and in that town, is the “Official Center of the World.” ( and it’s cheap only costs $3 donation, or $5 for the tour and certificate!)
A few years back a Frenchman named Jacques-Andre Istel, bought some land in the desert to retire, he named the town after his wife, Felicia ( whom I was lucky to meet sh’es in the photo too!), and hence the Center of the world was created.
History is caved in Granite, there is a non denominational Church that sits above the town, and a staircase that leads to nowhere. (The stairs are from the Eiffel tower.)
Inside the Pyramid is the exact center of the world, very precise, you must stand in the very center dot.
I was hoping for a bright sun filled day ( a rarity. usually crossing fingers for those clouds) because I was shooting infrared film. Still ghost like and unique I am quite happy with the results.

Photo shoot on 8 x 10 polaroid film Inspired by the Hey Girl Ryan Gosling Meme.
I asked Jess when she knew her Boo was the one, ( thinking to myself it was probably the movie The Notebook), and the answer was, The Mouseketeers, at the age of 10 when she was in the fifth grade. Since then Ryan has appeared to her in gifts from friends, from T shirts to pillowcases, even his face on cookies for her birthday party. I’ll even joke at family photo shoots, if he is late or stuck on set and can’t make it.
If you aren’t familiar with the Hey Girl Ryan Gosling Memes- they are quite entertaining…
Hey Girl, I love it when you wear your Yoga Pants all Day
“Hey Girl- feel my sweater. Know what it’s made of? Boyfriend Material”

Ariadne came to the photography studio for her dance head shots and audition images. We had fun with multiply exposed images, and of course some black and white traditional film images photographed with the Hasselblad.
