Remember my blog post ‘How do you take outfit photos?‘ Cool, me too.
Well, I hope you’re not here looking for TIPZ as things just got even awkwarder. I found a secret place full of no humans and have started taking some photos outside (things are getting serious!). Once a week, I go to my own secret place, set up my own tripod and snap away, minding my own bloody business.
There is a main road behind all the trees which you can’t see in the pictures – but it’s there, I promise. As I was taking these photos, two boy-type humans must have seen my neon green shoes glowing through the woods and stopped
to have a nosy lurk around and blatantly stare at me.
I don’t know what’s stranger – me taking photos of myself in a bright summer dress on a damp winters day, or two men stopping and starting at me taking photos of myself in a bright summer dress on a damp winters day.
As they they edged, closer I panicked and quickly replaced these heels with flats (I’m not even going to pretend I walked down that muddy path in those heels), put my coat on and pretended I was taking normal pictures of the OMGNATURES.
It then proceeded to chuck it down, so they left.
and so did I. As I got onto the main road, they started to follow me down the street. Luckily, my car was just around the corner so I got in and drove off.
I recruited an assistant photographer the next day.
It does not feel anywhere near as weird when there is somebody else there.
How do you deal with stranger doom?
I’m co-hosting a blog hop today – please join in the fun and make some new friends!
Now the co-hosts
I would travel to Australia. When I was 19, my brother, his wife and two children moved to Australia. They’ve not been back to England since and I’ve not been to visit them! My parents have travelled there 3 times but I’ve never been able to join them due to money, studies and work. They go for 6 weeks at a time and I could never afford to take that much time out! It’s been almost 9 years since they moved, they have has two additional children in Australia that I’m dying to meet! I have 3 older brothers and the one that moved to Oz was the one I was closest to, I would baby sit my niece and nephew and they would stay at our house all the time. Now we only communicate though Facebook and Instagram, with the occasional Facetime chat when I’m at my parents house.
If I could go anywhere RIGHT NOW, I would pick somewhere tropical like Antigua! It seems so relaxing and warm and I’m feeling beach-y. (California has cold beach waters). Plus, I would be spoiled since we are going to Europe in 2 months!!
I’d like to travel to Australia right now because I need a grand vacation on beaches . Also , I’m craving summer so badly. So a quick Aussie holiday would be my fix.
