It Themed Photo Shoot: They All Float Down Here

It themed photo shoot by bellingham photographer, Renee Bergeron. Thanks for the inspiration, Stephen King!

I was about 14 when I read my first Stephen King novel. I don’t remember which I read first (Pet Semetary, maybe? Or Cujo?). This was before the days of Kindles and I would have to wait for the books to come out in paperback to afford them (and for ease of reading…I hate reading giant hardcover books). This was soon followed by a deluge of frantic catching up (let’s face it, I was born in 1975, I was way behind).

I remember, my freshman year in high school, my best friend bought me the paperback copy of Misery (which remains one of my favorite Stephen King books to this day).

I was fascinated (and horrified) by It. What could possibly be scarier than evil that manifests itself in the form of whatever you are most afraid of?

I wasn’t allowed to watch horror movies (though that doesn’t mean I didn’t sneak a few here or there) but my mom broke this rule so we could watch the TV miniseries of the original It. I wanted to watch it because I loved the book. My mom wanted to watch it because she loved Richard Thomas.

All that to say, I have had a keen interest in the remake of the movie It. I haven’t seen it, won’t see it in the theater, and may not even see it when it comes out on DVD…but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have an overwhelming urge to pay homage to Stephen King’s tale of horror by doing an It themed photo shoot.

I hope you enjoy.

If you dare.

Have you read the book It? Seen the movie? Do you plan to?

  1. The following is a confession of a conservative crunchy homeschool mom: I read It in 5th or 6th grade.
    I can remember my dad reading two books in my entire childhood and It was one of them. He checked the hardcover version out from the library and I read it while he and my mom were at work. It was my first Steven King book AND my first book that was over 1000 pages long! I read Misery, Pet Cemetery, Cujo, and whole bunch more by the end of middle school…yet my mom was more upset when she caught me reading Flowers in the Attic in 7th grade. Was she even paying attention? I find stories like Misery and Cujo to be far more scary than anything supernatural. But I don’t think I could read Cujo again as a mom. I watched The Witch last year and still feel the need to circle up my kids and keep them out of the woods.

    • Well, Flowers in the Attic is a in a whole other class. I read it too as a teen. What an eye opener!

  2. I was born in 1957 so I’m really far behind . . . big confession: haven’t read Steven King! But now I’m going to . . . I remember being in the hospital for asthma when I was in fifth grade, and the nurse freaking out because I was reading Rosemary’s Baby . . .I went on to The Stepford Wives, of which at least two film versions now exist. My generation read Ira Levin. I really must catch up!
