In case you haven't noticed, I've been trying to do a better job at photographing things for you guys over here. (I say TRYING, because it's a learning process, as you can see in the picture bellow where I have my eyes closed. Oops!) Anyhoo, I finally clued in that, you know, MAYBE it's not so nice for you all to see pictures of the washing or my messy room in the background. So I've been trying to give you more interesting photographs.
As part of these efforts, I made my poor sister get up at 5 AM the other day and we drove to this carefully selected location for the "golden hour", which is either one hour after sunrise or one hour after sunset. It's supposed to give a soft light without harsh shadows -- at least this is what my travel journalism teacher tells me!
This spot is usually pretty deserted -- at least, it is on a Sunday morning when I come here with my running group. I found out quickly enough that it's NOT SO DESERTED on a weekday morning. In fact, it's seemed to be quite the opposite (although you would never guess from these pictures). Turns out, it's the road of choice for big truckers and other heavy machinery driven by men of that disposition (read, scruffy with questionable manners).
All this to say that, there I was, in the wee hours of the morning, standing by the side of the road with ultra high-heels and a mini skirt and it occurred to me that, hey, I may possibly be sending signals of being "open for business", as in, "lady of the night open for business" open for business. And soon enough, the truckers did confirmed my assessment in openly sharing (read, yelling) their delight.
The things that you guys make me do! I hope that you're at least a little appreciative of the pictures! Anyhoo, I will let you go do whatever else you need to do right now -- prepare dinner, go back to work, continue reading your blog feed or work on that sewing project -- and I will save the details of the skirt and construction notes for a next post, because I'm running out of time myself!
Happy sewing everyone!
