Although these shots look somewhat like crap (I will continue to tell myself that the cars and ugly rails are to blame… and I don’t like using Photoshop), I think this is probably the happiest I’ve been with my photographic adventures. I messed around with aperture and shutter speed today to get a natural backlight, and although I clearly have some problems with keeping my head still, I’d say I’m smiling at how they turned out.

I got a bit silly with mixing patterns today – I’ve been wearing these amazing OSBORNboots non-stop thanks to ModCloth, and I could see no better option than to shake them up with irregular spots, the bizarrely tangled stripes on this turband I made before I went to bed last night, and the less bizarrely tangled stripes on these We Love Coloursstripey thigh-highs that are much more suited to warmer weather than my other ones.

I’m trying to get more wear out of this blazer before the mercury skyrockets – though I think the drapey pockets make it look less Wintry. Yes no? And, by the way, YesStyle.com and YesStyle.com.au are both offering free shipping when you order with PayPal until October 3! Which is a pretty big bonus – I always balk at shipping costs.

The more I look at it, the more I think that last shot looks like a film negative. It’s messing with my eyes.
