Sharing with you the 3rd and last set of photos from my grunge series shoot with Edric Chen (see the other sets HERE and HERE). For these photos, I brought Edric to one my favorite places to shoot in the South area. Said location had a decrepit swimming pool which looks amazing during the day -- it's covered with leaves and growing wildflowers and has boulders scattered here and there. At night though, it is enveloped by total darkness and looks a bit sinister. To be honest, I was really worried and petrified to have my photos taken in the pool. I don't even have to deny that I'm a scaredy-cat. Every time I felt the wind rustle and heard the leaves crackle, I felt as if someone was watching us. In the end, I agreed to jump down the pool. I didn't want to let Edric down and waste his time. It was a good decision though as the photos turned out eerily cool.

Read Edric's positive account regarding this shoot HERE.

Thank you, Edric. Here's to new discoveries and experiences!


  1. I agree with the eeriness but it's one of the best points on these photos! JC Litas are <3, Kookie! :)

  2. abandoned pools scare me. we have one in our town's hospital, and they said they used to let patients swim there. they're scary, but you're one cool and brave woman. :)

  3. Anything abandoned scares me! But I love the concept and your outfit. When I was looking through the pictures, I was slightly worried that I might see... things. Hahahaha! :P Great job, Kookie, for braving the darkness! Super love the photos! :)

    1. HAHAHAHA! When I was reviewing the photos from Edric's camera, I was a bit scared that I might see "silhouettes" too!

  4. This is my favorite set of your Edric Chen photos. He's an amazing artist and you (and the photos) look extremely cool. I don't blame you, I'm a pansy and probably get scared more easily than you do! :))
