So when Kate and i go on our lil photography expiditions, I try to ignore the fact that i dont like posing for photos. Ive worked out over the years, that it is better to pose, and look halfway decent, than not to pose, the result being a bunch of candid, not so flattering photos. Not that candids dont have their place...I like candids. alot. But thats not what this post is about.
So Kate and i drove out to Berrima last weekend to take some "winter afternoon sunlight" photos. Of course, nobody wanted to come pose for us. Which is a shame. You'd think our fam and friends would want some lovely winter afternoon sunlight photos! But the only person who willingly poses for us these days is Blake...and to be honest, he's not all that willing alot of the time either! He's just disadvantaged by the fact he cant get up and run away.
My camera had a spack attack halfway thru and decided to stop working, so i didnt take too many. But it was a great day for a drive, and the photos we did get were quite nice. Nothing to get too excited about, but decent enough.
We were driving along, trying to find somewhere to snap a few shots when we drove past this church. No one was around, so we used it as a back drop. The light on the sandstone bricks was lovely.
This photo of Kate gives me dejavu. Ive done almost the exact same shot of her at a wedding last september. I couldnt find the original colour version, but the lighting is very similar. Does make me think that we need to be a lil more creative in our posing.
This one was still on the church grounds.
And a few below that Kate took of me.
We found this cool mural on the side of a bike shop...very tara whitney-ish (my favourite photographer) i think... Must say it really shows how short i am tho! But i like it...i like photos of me with my camera. Makes me happy...lol.
Now this photo below, is Kates favourite. Personally, i think she was on drugs when she made this decision. She calls this my "sexy" look. I think its my "what the hell?" look....If that is my sexy look, then thankgod i have Jira or i really would be headed for an eternity of singledom. tragical.
