We had a little storm last night in the City of Angels. It was really little (maybe 5 minutes max) but I wish it would have lasted the whole evening because I love the sound and smell of rain. The sky couldn't have been more beautiful, it was a deep blush and orange color and the air was so balmy and warm. I had to make a pit stop at the drug store to buy face wash before I could shootI (when you wear as much mascara as I do, a good face wash is pit stop worthy). I bought a product that promised to do 7 different kinds of anti-aging, plus it was on sale, I was in a word chuffed.
I came home, shot, took a shower, uploaded my photo's and had the Fancy ask, "Are you wearing men's cologne?" Verdict? I will have younger looking skin but will smell like an elderly gentleman, is it worth the trade off? I think so.
We are coming to an end of our Souvenir Foto School session and I am feeling blue. I have rather enjoyed this session and was pleasantly surprised that I wasn't kicked out of class for not completing my assignments (as I have been known to procrastinate and all). I had really great feedback from my students that they felt more creative and I have to say I did as well. I really want this feeling to last as who knows when I will shut down from my day job drudgery and find myself in the fetal position or rocking back in forth in a corner? I played with a new technique and I don't know if it will go anywhere but I had fun doing it.
