I don’t know if you recall, but one of the things I was excited about in my new town was this “enchanted forest” of a park that was tucked up in one corner of downtown. Last week, I finally had time to take some pictures there, and boy, I really love how they came out! The park features a winding, tree-canopied path which runs around a clearing that the local theater troupe uses for its summer productions. This path abounds with overgrown foliage and art installations alike–though it’s only a block square, it feels like something I could get lost in! Right behind old houses, natural areas like this one are my favorite places to shoot at. There’s so much to interact with that I almost forget I’m supposed to be taking pictures of myself.
I was really excited to wear this new headband–I bought it while I was at Pierogi Fest in in Whiting, Indiana. I went with a few friends last weekend and gorged myself on homemade pierogis and sarsaparilla, and I even entered a polka contest with one of my pals. (We lost within seconds.) While we ambled up and down the festival route, I found a woman selling handmade wire headbands for $5 a pop. Since these normally run about $15 on ModCloth, I couldn’t pass them up and ended up taking home two.
Also, I think this post marks the first time I’ve worn a bracelet in a shoot. I have a really hard time finding bracelets that fit, but this one, which belonged to my mom, is just right. If anyone knows of a good place to find small bracelets (and rings, for that matter), please let me know!
