You know how sometimes you see something and your reaction is just like yes, that. and there’s nothing more articulate to say about it? Like, this image so perfect you’re not sure if someone actually made it—or if it’s something you imagined?

This is how I feel about this series of photographs by Angela Strassheim. Called “Pause,” it’s basically all the heroines of my favorite children’s books come to life (Ramona, Dicey, and Davey are all there) plus a few scenes that I swear to god I totally lived in the movie version of my own life (two girls smoking, that car in the rain).

Anyway, nothing else to say, but it’s nice to recognize things sometimes. Even if you have no business doing so.
