What Happens When You Shoot Yourself … With a Camera
Yesterday, I decided to do a last minute outfit post and I could not be bothered to do it at home due to the heat – plus, my posing options would have been limited, and as you can tell I like to strike a pose (come on, I am strapped to an office chair for 40 hours a week, my limbs deserve it!!)!
I really wanted to showcase this Dark In Love dress I ordered from Kate’s Clothing – it is similar to a Restyle dress but at £39.99 it is £20 cheaper! The boots are from New Rock and the model is 8272-S1.
What do you think is happening whilst I am taking this photo and looking straight into my little Canon M50 mounted onto a Manfrotto tripod?
Well, I am basically in a public park, minding my own gothy business and I am getting so many glares I am doing a Jesus and turning the other cheek !
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND what is so disturbing for my fellow earthly civilians to compute.
Honestly this park is HUGE, and there are people outthere smoking joints and others doing the beast with two backs under Spongebob printed blankets – yet *I*do get a lot of confused stares / slow walks when I am out shooting.
Woman wears black in a park and takes photographic evidence ? Ermahgerd !!!!! Call Mulder and Scully !
Listen, I even had the park rangers driving slowly when they passed me, reversed and drove again. Lolololol.
Who gives a fuck though?
The worst part is not the glares, actually. It is when people actually get in your face and try to be dickheads and disrupt your flow: for instance teenagers screaming at you to take their pictures or approaching your kit (that stuff is not cheap).
But I keep on doing mah thang. And get ready to stuff a metal boot up their groin.
After taking these pics, I decided to sit on a bench to pack my stuff up. And guess what? Four dudes decided to surround me with their cans of piss with bubbles (aka beer, can’t stand it sorry) and get all ‘Oi oi‘ with me. Thankfully, I had System of A Down telling me to put more makeup in my headphones, so I just packed up and left.
In summary, life of a blogger is not always glamourous but I love it!
Do you get bothered outside for your looks?
