Because It Rains.

Sometimes you spend a rainy New York day inside your apartment.
You pull out your old computer.
The one you hardly use anymore.
And you relive history.

You click through photos.
Of you.
Of Violet.
Before you were together.
As you got together.
As you changed together.

Passed through life together.
All of it seeming not so long ago, somehow.
Because it wasn't, really.
But wasn't it?

You find old photos you forgot existed.
Notice the time when you starting being Violet+Rye.
The photos changed.
But not really.
Still lots of food.
Lots of smiles.
Lots of nudity.
Lots of love.

And then some you kept off the blog, for whatever reason.
Can't seem to remember now.
And it seems like the perfect time to share.

Here's to history.
Here's to future.
Here's to you being here for all of it.


  1. Lovely sort guys, and you know what, the other day I was looking through old pics searching for something, it was an amazing trip down memory lane, your sort captivates what its like taking that trip. Thanks, J x

    1. Thanks so much for saying so! We enjoyed today's trip, hopefully as much as you did yours.


  2. Lovely photos! My guy and I have been taking photos for each other pretty much our whole relationship so far and finding your blog has inspired us with new angles and suggestions for ways to entice each other via camera! So much so that we have just ventured into our first blog together, so we'll have to really get snapping now! http://hgandgg.tumblr.com

    1. Oh, that's so fucking great to hear! We checked out your blog and enjoyed what we found so far! Keep up the great work and thanks so much for letting us know you enjoy what we're doing!
