These pictures were actually shot at midnight. The moon had risen and the mist was starting to flow down the river into the pond and dude, it just looked cool and freaky out. (The atmosphere matched my outfit better than the pictures I'd taken earlier in the day as well.) I'm really trying to push myself when it comes to the photography and learn how to take an awesome picture without having to mess with the picture on the computer at all. (My pictures are untouched, the way they appear on the blog is the way they're taken with the camera.) This light was tricky but really fun to play with. Plus, a full moon and mist on the pond with an abandoned bus? That's about perfect.
A while ago I decided I really wanted a tulle skirt, I love the way they move and while they're very, very feminine and not really practical(ahem) they just look pretty. I researched all of the tulle skirts out and this was the one I really feel in love with. It had seven layers of tulle, was well made and was this grayish blue rather than white. (A little too bridal for me.) Unfortunately it was also really expensive. Onward to ebay! I found one for forty dollars but got outbid right at the last second, something that happens irritatingly too often, and I didn't get it. A month later I found this one and while it was more than I wanted to pay for a frivolous item in my closet, I'd also been obsessing about it non stop. I ended up buying it and yes, it's not practical and you should probably only spend more money on items you can wear all the time like great jeans but I love this skirt. Sometimes,it's worth it to spend more on something that just really makes you smile when you wear it.
I swear, I'm going to make this a practical skirt just by wearing the living daylights out of it. I did joke a while back about wearing a tutu to the barn, now I'm going to have to follow up on it. At least Merrylegs will appreciate it, if only because he's trying to eat it.
