The Grand Illusion
Today I am rather de-bunking some of the illusions my pictures might cause to arise. I am showing my pinned dress under my skirt and revealing how I look before I remove superfluous items (note bag and headphones). By the very nature of taking your own photographs with a self-timer these images will be staged and as both model and conjurer I take liberties in what I reveal and what I hide. You see if I showed my bag to you every day chances are it would be this tote with it's little wave pockets, since it is very convenient for work. Also I feel the leopard print headphones while fun, rather destroy the romantic environment in the pictures created by the arching branches, strips of golden sun, and deep reds.
