The sun is refusing to shine most of this month, and I am blaming that for my lack of Thursday Thrift posts. I was going to have one for you all today, but the rain ruined my plans to get outside and take any pictures (same ole story, I know). The weather has a way of messing things up for us wanna be fashion bloggers sometimes, and there is nothing I can do about it. I suppose I could take photos indoors, but I really have no backdrops in here that make for a suitable shot. These days my house seems to be nothing but clutter and I just about can’t take it anymore. But that would be another story for another day. (Don’t worry, I don’t really think I will be blogging about my cluttered house anytime soon… I hope not anyway.)
Apologies for a Thursday Thrift-less December, guys, but I do have a little something for today – a few of the photos that haven’t made the blog, also known as the outtakes. I dug a little into the archives this morning and found some photos that represent a big chuck of my self photography fails. It isn’t easy taking pictures of yourself, I know this very well. You have some good days where more than a few of the photos that end up on the card are not too bad, but in my case, I am lucky to end up with three out of twenty plus that I don’t think make me look too weird. And I get a lot of photo bombs.
Yuki dog is usually the main culprit. I don’t know how many of her I have. Either she’s there in the shot, most often with her backside showing, or she’s just out of sight and I am motioning to her to move – crazy facial expressions included. I spared you the sight of those, my crazy facial expressions are not something I felt like posting on the inter-webs. ;-)
And then there is the boy. It’s as if he waits in the shadows, listening to the self-timer beep, awaiting the perfect moment to spring in front of the camera. I have way too many of these. In fact, I started deleting some of them because I have more than enough.
Sometimes I see him coming, and it’s funny, I’m noticing a similar reaction on my part when that happens.
Sorry again, no Thursday Thrift. I will be back next year though with more tales of my thrifted clothes; so thrifters, don’t give up on my yet.
Should you have anything thrifted up on your blog, feel free to leave me a link in the comments. I would like to see someone’s outfit posts on this dreary, wet, and rainy day.
