The dog days are gone

 Dress: Liz Roberts, vintage; Shoes: Zigi Soho; Scarf: gift; Sunglasses: BR, from Marilou.

I don't really consider myself an indoor or blank wall photographer, like many style bloggers are, because both settings tend to utterly befuddle me. There's a reason why you won't see very many photos of blank walls or other apartment interiors here:  Artificial lighting or confined spaces are hard for me to manipulate into decent photos. But today, I really just wanted to do something very simple outside, and challenged myself to stay in just one spot and strip it down to just a couple points of view, just like I might for a future indoor post. As my usual photo spots are getting more and more occupied with the warm weather, I have been reconsidering places that I usually skip for photos because of convenience and solitude. It's not the end of landscape photos, but maybe before summer's end my humble abode will make an appearance here.

I had one of the best weekends in recent memory. One of our close friends V came to stay for the weekend and  Jeremiah and I showed him around Athens, which included going to a 90s-themed bar and walking around the college campus. In addition, we surprised another close friend T at her law school graduation and celebrated with her later that day. T and I became friends during our mock trial  days in high school (in our two competitions together, she was my lawyer, and I was the defendant), and seeing her complete her formal education was like watching a story come full circle.

How was your weekend? I have 10 million photos to wade through from the last few days that I can't wait to share with you.
