So… You may start to notice a trend in my posts—that is, that I seem to be in the woods an awful lot. Allow me to explain… As you guys know/can probably tell from the questionable quality of my photos, I take all my own pictures by using the self-timer setting on my D-40. (And I don’t have a tripod, which is why most of them are from a really low vantage point slash are skewed at silly angles.) But when I was at home and photographing, I’d just go out somewhere in my fairly private yard and prop up the Nikon on a lawn chair or some such faux-tripod apparatus. And then I’d usually take anywhere from 20 to 50 photos of an outfit to make sure I got at least some good shots worthy of public viewing (at least by my lowly standards). HOWEVER, here in Botetourt (What? Read this) I can’t really do that… And I refuse to submit myself to the humiliation/awkwardness of letting some one else take pictures for me or generally let anyone be present while I take pictures. So, long story short, I go out in the woods behind my dorm at odd hours of the day and take pictures. HEYO. Who’s a creep? This girl.
Random daily digression going off on the tangent of being a creep: love this song.
ANYWAYS, funny story: so these photos are a couple days old, from my first woodland excursion… While I was out there on the “fit trail,” kind of sketchily off the beaten path and posing for a picture, a girl from my dorm walks by and of course I FREAK OUT. So I’m all like “I SWEAR I HAVE A FASHION BLOG I DON’T JUST TAKE MY OWN PICTURE WELL I DO BUT IT’S FOR THE BLOG SO THAT’S ALMOST SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE--PLEASE DON’T JUDGE ME—I’M BLOGGING” and she’s just like, “Umm… what?” because she hadn’t even noticed I had a camera. Sigh. And then I had to slowly reiterate my lame blogging excuse. But basically I’m pretty sure she thinks I’m a creep. Which would be an apt assumption.
Also, this is that oxford shirt I’ve been wearing all weekend that I very poorly showcased yesterday in my last post.
What a sketch. The good news: not all college kids are like this… it’s just me.
