In the air

Turns out I like taking photos in the center of town, even though there are always lots of people around, these people are generally friendly; they apologize when they think they've stepped into the frame, they say things like "oh these photos are going to come out so well", and they compliment my handbag.

Of course when it comes to people, you never know what you are going to get, and of course I would usually go for seclusion when I'm alone taking photos - because it can be a little awkward to have an audience, but for now, I'm not minding so much.

What a stunning dress! I have had some interesting reactions when I'm taking photos around town. People see the camera and have to know what's going on :)

Frannie Pantz said...

I'm in an awkward between phase of not wanting an audience and not minding so much as far as taking photos in public. But you always do just great. I love your floral dress and blazer!

Lena's Blend said...

Very pretty love the entire look and the colors are very flattering on you.

TaraMixandMatch said...

What a gorgeous dress! You've had a lot of luck at Kohl's lately from the looks of this post and your sidebar list of purchases. I get a little shy when out taking pictures by myself since there's lot of vocal passers-by in my busy neighborhood. Impressed with your confidence!

You're so brave to take pictures of yourself in front of others without having a complete meltdown. I always feel so paranoid that people will see me. Love your fresh red and aqua outfit! You look fantastic.

You have a brave heart, haha. Oh, i tried this taking photos in public thing last week and don't think it's something I'd do again. too many stares!

I'm loving this dress Lydia! It's soooooo pretty :) x

Alyssa said...

You are so brave! I would be so terrified to take photos in a more public place. Heck, I even get shy doing them in my driveway if I feel like my neighbors can see me!

This is such a perfect spring look. I love the combo of the red and the turquoise.

Laura Go said...

you've got guts to take photos in a very crowded place! :) I love this outfit, Lyddie! The dress is super pretty and your handbag is super chic!

I hate taking photos in public so I commend your bravery! Also, I totally love that blazer - such a great piece.

Hey, better to take pictures in friendlytown compared to somewhere less crowded where meanies who shout at you are!! and people are so nice and compliment you?! that is so lovely (of course they should compliment you though because you are stunning and radient and all other things synonymous to beautiful!)

I adore the bright blue of your purse and regret not ever buying that dress from Kohl's every time I see you wear it. Le sigh!

Lorena said...

I see you are getting marvelous weather !
You courageous woman :) I'd die going out with a tripod in the middle of town. Then again my audience here is totally wacko and I'd not only get stares but the comments. I think you have an educated audience :)

Bonnie said...

I love the hair-in-your-face picture. For me, those always turn out the best -- or the funniest, depending on how strong the wind gust was. Ha! Love this bag.

I love the floral dress! you are so ready for Spring and what a fab white blazer!

Alex Elizabeth said...

People are always thinking they've stepped into my frame, too, although they rarely ever do. Give my little camera too much credit for the area is can cover!

Glad to see this dress again! It's been so windy here, too.

Tashia said...

Love the turquoise touches with this red/pink color. Yet again your accessories totally make the outfit:)

Amber said...

I would have stopped and complimented your bag too. I adore the color! Its so bold and lush. I need it!

Mrs. J said...

You always shine so much more when spring and summer comes. These season work well for you! You look wonderful! :)

looove this dress!!

The awesome thing about taking outside pics in big tourist cities like SF (and even when I lived in Las Vegas) is that people always think you're just taking tourist photos and don't pay you any attention :)

I think these photos turned out gorgeous! These colors look great with your skin, and I love the brick background. I know you were wanting a photographer, but I think I'd be happy if you were MY photographer!!

Have you tried amazon for the anchor ring ?
or http://www.gofavor.com/vintage-adjustable-rhinestone-anchor-ring.html ?
BTW where is that starfish ring from ?
I have been looking for one since I saw it on REVENGE.

Jamie K said...

Do you use a tripod and self-timer to take your pics, then? I love to hear how other bloggers do it!!
