In the theme of “visiting my favorite places before the move”, I’ve been taking a tour of some of my favorite (photo) spots. Maybe where I take outfit pictures, where I go to relax, or great places for photo walks – it varies!
One of those spots is a park called Dinosaur Hill. I still remember the first time I came here in pre-school. I’m not kidding! My mother would (and does) question my memory. We made kites from paper plates and took a field trip up here to fly them. I don’t remember much beyond that…
Since moving to this city, I visit often to walk around and de-stress… but also for photo shoots – including one at dawn for a class assignment.
My brother wants to know when he’s going to get paid for this…
All I remember about that day is leaving at 4am to pick up my friend/helper who lived nearby, driving 45 minutes to pick up my brother (the model above, and kite flyer), then driving BACK to the city I started in. Only to have a bike with a flat tire (lol), being in the cold (April), rolling around in the mud (how do you think I got that shot?) and realizing that I forgot my tripod… for a sunrise shoot. Where like, time is of the essence and stuff.
Pretty awesome. I even took OOTD’s there before I started this blog:
Shirt – F21+, XL
Skirt – Old Navy, XXL
Cardigan – Old Navy, 3x
Flats – Clarks
Bag – Asos
Bracelet – F21
Not much to say about this one. Just another outfit, for another day of packing and running errands. I got fed up with everything and headed to the yarn store for some “quality” fiber time, so I threw this outfit on. I ended up buying cashmere yarn ($$$) with little hesitation, which is an indication of my stress level at the time.
Bonus is – my knitting mojo has re-appeared and I might actually have something finished soon. YAY!
I love this shirt – sequins, cutouts, embroidery – but I’m afraid to wash it.
