I’m soooo excited about tomorrow. I’m doing a photo shoot with two very beautiful models, who graciously agreed to work for free (They had no choice. They’re blood relatives, who regularly eat my food!!!!) I’ve got my backdrops ready to go, and I’m just working with my equipment to make sure the lighting is all set up properly and my lenses are clean! If the weather cooperates, I’m going to head outside to a couple of spots I’ve got lined up. One is right outside the windows of our local gym, which has the most amazing architectural features that I can use as a backdrop. My ethical dilemma is whether or not to tell my models ahead of time, or just sort of spring it on them when we’re walking up to the gym. You see…it’s RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE GYM WINDOWS…and there will probably be about 2,000 sweaty, muscly men pumping iron while they watch a couple of pretty girls getting their pictures taken!!!! I don’t anticipate any reluctance at all. Maybe I can even market myself as a photographer/matchmaker!
If you’re like me, you’re starting to crave fresh flowers. Grayness falls over my Pacific Northwest neighbourhood in January, and it just seems gloomy. Bringing a bouquet home is always such a treat for me, and it just seems to energize our house a little bit. Every time I walk past the bouquet of lillies, fresia and roses, I get a waft of their heavenly scents, which instantly raises my spirits! I couldn’t help pick up a couple of bunches of the gorgeous pink pussywillow branches too. They’re absolutely exquisite.
The water on the Fraser river in Fort Langley was as still as I’ve ever seen it today. These photos were taken about an hour after the whole area was blanketed in fog. The crystal clear water reflected perfectly blue January sky.
