Outfit: Over Troubled Water

Some days, the struggle is real.

I got up early to take these pictures, and in my haste to get ready in the morning, I knocked over a glass candle holder in my bathroom…and then I stepped on a broken shard.  Which I didn’t even realize until I was trailing blood all over the floor.  Thank goodness for a carpet-free apartment, right?  I bandaged up my foot and got dressed and out the door like a champ, and then the real challenge began.

For a long time, I’ve really wanted to take pictures at this very covered bridge, right as the sun was coming up.  I thought nothing could be prettier or more quaint than the dawn breaking over the river.  That’s what I was determined to get, bleeding toe or not.

Instead, I got to the bridge just in time for it to start pouring.  The storm came on so suddenly and unexpectedly, and I was just stuck here for about an hour.  I don’t think you can tell by the pictures, but the whole time I was being lightly misted with raindrops and splashes from the river below.  I had nothing better to do, so I just kept snapping away until the storm blew itself out.

It wasn’t really so bad; the views were lovely from where I stood, and under a gazebo nearby, two men were playing guitars and singing over the rain.  Still, I was so disappointed that I didn’t get my sunrise pic–foiled again!

Maybe the blogging gods are trying to get me to take it easy, but I tell you what: it’s going to take more than a sore toe and a stormy sky to stop me.

  1. I have no idea what it would look like with the sunrise but I must say these pictures turn out so beautifully, so I think the blogging gods have failed themselves 😉
    That purse is absolute beauty! ♥︎ just gorgeous!
    And I admire how well you keep your composure. I think I would’ve pouted in all the photos, if I were in your shoes :’)

  3. The photos turned out beautifully, even though they were not what you were originally envisioning. (I have that happen all the time- the darned weather patterns!!) Hopefully you can get the original ideas sometime in the future!
