I've mentioned before that I really want to improve my photography. The photography has become my favorite part of the bog and I really want to push myself to taking more "interesting" pictures than aren't necessarily outfit photos. Once a week I'm going to try for a story within the photos, both to see if I can portray a line of thought or a concept and to try new things with the camera. I'm pretty happy with how this came out although I see some areas for improvement, a few different angles or shots might have pulled the whole thing together nicely.
I suppose I've been listening to too much Mumford and Sons but I'm really pleased with how this came out. I love shooting while it's snowing or is misty outside, sunshine is wonderful but there's something that really pulls at me when it's overcast and dark outside. (I suppose that comes from being a Seward girl.)
Since I really didn't talk about my outfit at all, I will mention this awesome elephant handbag. My godmother collects elephant figurines and has a really beautiful collection of them. She use to let me get them down when I was a child so I could look at them. As a child it was wonderful to live across the ally from them, my grandmothers lived down in the states and both of my grandfathers had died long before I was born. I think for most kids grandparents hold such a special place and knowing my godparents really helped fill that spot. My godmother just the sweetest, most wonderful person in the world and any time I see something like this purse, it makes me think of her.
