These pictures were taken on the side of the road. With the exception of a few, most of my pictures are taken on the side of the road. Even though it's much more convenient to take them in my front yard or backyard, or even somewhere downtown, I don't like to deal with distractions when taking photographs of myself. Having strangers stare at me while I'm trying to look as normal as possibly usually results in awkward poses and facial expressions. And while I don't have strangers in my backyard, I do have pets. Some of my pets are not camera shy AT ALL (I had to crop them out in my last blog because they like to poke their heads into my pictures). But then the privacy factor comes into play. Taking pictures in front of my house would be a big no-no in my book. I don't need to show the whole world exactly where I live. Google maps already does that for me (and for YOU too!), so I don't need to make it any more obvious. Besides, I've had a stalker before and it is no laughing matter! I take my privacy very seriously.
But back to the subject of picture taking. I really enjoy going on walks. As a blogger, this makes it easier for me to have a constantly changing background...and it ends up being like a fashion diary. I would prefer my photos to have a visually pleasing background as well as an equally interesting outfit to display. I think that helps give my blog something that's a little bit unique. But on the downside of it, I don't always have time to take pictures in pretty places. So that in itself limits me most of the time. But luckily I have an amazing and patient boyfriend who enjoys taking my pictures. LOL!! So I'd like to give a shout out to him and to all of the other boyfriends and girlfriends who take our pictures for our blogs. THANKS A BUNCH!
