Photos by: Me. I'm very proud - self portraits at last...!
It's my favourite vintage 80s blouse again - I've been wearing so much blue and burgundy lately that I've come out in pink spots ;)
These photos were taken with the ring flash I got for Christmas last year from Mr. Summers... I love the flattering (i.e. wrinkle-disguising) light it gives. When I was doing my photography degree 20 [wince] years ago and desperate to be the next Richard Avedon, I longed to own a ring flash! The composition of the first photo is not perfect (in my eyes) but that's what comes of insisting I take at least some pictures on my blog and not being able to see through the viewfinder; I so envy Mr. Summers taking most of my pictures - it's frustrating not being behind the camera. So please bear with me while I get to grips with self portraits! These indoor shots I'm forced to take in the winter are encouraging me to get creative and I hope you like the results, with luck they will only get better (outfits and photos).
I'm also tickled pink (puns! puns! everywhere!) to announce that I'm the Thrifters Anonymous of the Week this week over at Shana and Adam's Color Blind blog... Thank you guys so much!!!
