Hello from sunny California! As many of you know I am on vacation until Wednesday, but wanted to share my fun trip with you all, so I will be posting daily photos of summery outfits, my family, and pretty scenery for the next few days or so.
I must say that this vacation has come at the most opportune time, since right now is quite a transitional period for me regarding work and my career path. But the changes are positive and I am looking forward to the future. With that said, I have been doing a lot of thinking about things I want to do but haven’t done. And so, on this trip, I decided to start small and tackle one of the smaller goals. One of them being becoming gutsy enough to approach strangers on the street or subway who are dressed well and ask to take photographs of their outfits. My problem with this is that sometimes I become shy in these situations. So, I decided that the only way to make this happen would be by leaping head first and just doing it.
Today I took the plunge. I was standing in line at Starbucks in Coronado Island and saw this adorable girl dressed in a lightweight, white summery dress with a cute fitted, navy blazer and a gold, vintage looking belt. I thought to myself, “how many times have I chickened out of taking some girl or guy’s photograph when they are wearing something drop dead gorgeous?” It was now or never. So, I walked up, handed her my card and asked if I could take her picture. Lucky for me she was very sweet and was extremely obliging. Voila! I did it!
I am now determined to force myself to do this each time I see a fantastic outfit, so stay tuned for more “About Town” photographs. In the meantime, here is the lovely girl from earlier. It was shot quickly, but I hope you can see and appreciate what I saw.
