New York Blizzard of December 2010
I ventured out into the blizzard to take some pictures. I wore the dress my mom gave me for christmas (which, for all that I just said in my last post, I still love and if it proves to be durable enough, will most definitely become the dress of the year).
For the next few months, I’ll be taking a lot of self-portraits until I can convince those closest to me to model for me again. 🙁 I may have to wait until summer—no one wants to stand out in the cold—and apparently it can get pretty boring (or so my sister, best friends and sweetheart all tell me). They say they feel like the third wheel with me and my camera. I must get better at engaging and including them in the creative process. Anyone have any tips? Until then…
I hung a stick from a tree to know where to focus the camera, and then took the sticks place. It kind of worked but I was so cold! Focusing proved more difficult than I thought. Even with the stick trick, I ended up with a lot of blurry pictures, especially as I lost the ability to move my fingers.
But I like this last one. My ears give away how truly cold I am as I imagine what the neighbors must think and suppress a grin. It kind of reminds me of the Mona Lisa. 🙂
