Happy New Year everyone!!!
For my first post of 2013 I thought I’d have a little recap of 2012 and share with you some of the more ‘undesirable’ photos we took, rather than the best…
Before I clear all the outtakes off my hard drive I’ve collected the best of the worst to post here for your (and my) amusement. In some I’m caught off guard, others I’m goofing around and some I have no explanation for whatsoever. So sit back and enjoy, and take delight in the fact that, contrary to what some of you say in your lovely comments, I really don’t always look that good 😉
1. The one where my blazer was not flattering
Beware: when the wind catches your blazer, you end up looking about ten sizes wider than you actually are. Original post >>
2. The one where heels weren’t my friend
I was probably falling over in my heels here. Heels and fields don’t mix. Original post >>
3. The one where I wasn’t a ballerina
You end up with many outtakes when you’re trying to create some sort of leaping pose. Most shots were unusable… this is just one example of how stupid you look when it goes wrong. Original post >>
4. The one where I lost my manners
Two fingers up to the photographer. Original post >>
5. The one where I had rubber legs
I have no idea what I’m doing here, but I don’t look happy. Also my legs look like they’re made of rubber. Original post >>
6. The one where my hand did something weird
Goofing about, probably wanting to go home. And what’s happened to my hand…? Original post >
7. The one where my sneakers would not come off
A classic example of having to change shoes from the ones I’ve worn at work (I sit at a desk all day so heels aren’t a problem) to something I can walk in to where we take pictures (quite often up a country lane). So nice of Mr. Summers to capture me when I’m struggling with my sneakers. Original post >>
8. The one where I lost control of my hands
Probably messing about while camera settings are being changed, or I want to finish and go inside. Original post >>
9. The one where I had over-demonstrative hands
Directing Mr. Summers, telling him what camera settings to use perhaps…? Or describing the size of something in great detail. Who knows.
10. The one where my feet defied logic
A classic case of a “spinning around” outtake where you end up with a shot of both feet turned in. Not particularly flattering. Original post >>
11. The one where my eyes wouldn’t shut any tighter
I think I was having some sort of fit here. Original post >>
12. The one where I had some secret styling accessories
Ahhh… another classic: pulling in the dress I was sent by a company that was too big. I had to get the photo done for the M&S style blogger challenge, but couldn’t wait any longer for the smaller size to arrive in order to get my entry in on time. Bulldog clips to the rescue! Original post >
13. The one where I was a bit too happy for my own good
I have no idea what I’m doing here… I think I was jumping and trying to look stylish. It didn’t work. Original post >>
14. The one where I did NOT step in something
Wiping off the copious amounts of mud from my wellies (no, I hadn’t stepped in something) after wading through muddy puddles. Original post >>
15. The one where I had to make do
Trying to redo (or simply clip back) my hair from my face after the wind has blown it everywhere is a common occurrence. Car windows and the lens of the camera both make handy mirrors. Original post >>
16. The one where a bee attacked me
This has to be my favourite of the lot – was it a bee that flew in my face? I’ll never know, but it sure makes me laugh! Original post >>
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
So – proof that blogging is far from glamorous. Sometimes I’m amazed I look half decent in any photos at all – judging by this lot it’s a good job I have a patient photographer (a.k.a. my husband) who’s willing to take x number of shots…!
I’d like to wish everyone a very prosperous and happy 2013… make this year bring you everything you wish for :)))
