Back in the day, I used to love spending my lunch breaks scouting out new photo locations at the parks near my office. It was fun at first to find a new place to take pictures and do mini-photoshoots with my tripod and camera (granted no passersby saw me), but before long it started to become a chore and my outfit posts started becoming fewer and farther in between. It took up so much time and most days I just didn't want to bother with it.
Fast forward a year and a half (wow, has it really been that long?) and now I'm making more of an effort to just show my outfit and not bother with the "photoshoots" because I really only need one or two photos to properly show an outfit. While I still want nice and varied backgrounds for my pictures, going out of my way to take one picture is kind of a waste of time, so I've been using a lot of side streets or places that I already know of that are in close proximity and known to be fairly secluded.
That didn't stop me from deciding to be adventurous one day just for old times sake during lunch and walking down to a nearby park by the water. It was a beautiful day but OMG SO COLD AND WINDY. Days like this mean that there aren't that many people milling about, but it also means terrible pictures because my cardigan kept getting blown open, my eyes were shut for half the photos, and I'm all tensed up because of how freezing the wind was. These were the the best of the dismal bunch, but I wasn't going to go all that way (it was pretty far!!) just to end up not using the pictures. I'm only showing the outfit, after all. :)
BTW, my son (who is now 3 and a half, where did time go?) went in my closet the other day and asked me, "mommy, can I see your zebra shirt?" I was so confused for a second before I realized that apparently striped shirt = zebra shirt.
