change of scenario
when reading other people’s blogs the thing that saddens me a little is how they find the most amazing places for their photo shoots. lush greens and beautiful abandoned buildings are some of my favorite backdrops, things that sadly, are nowhere to be found here. at least, not where i live.
before we moved to our new home, we lived in an apartment compound with plenty of options for such backgrounds. one of our neighbors had a lovely little garden for one, and sometimes i’d walk by slower just to take it all in. but where we are now, though still a compound with more than a dozen apartments inside, is a tad more dull. there are no gardens whatsoever, and with very few plants here and there. and it never feels right to take a picture beside our neighbor’s single pot of fern.
so most of my recent outfit posts have been taken on my balcony. i’ve always planned on making it a little more exciting, like decorating it with plants and some peculiar furniture. but as most things go in my life, i haven’t found the time to even get it started, so i am left with another boring backdrop.
this time though, i decided to leave the confines of my balcony and go out — just right outside our apartment where we do actually have a few plants crammed together. i was so nervous to do this because there are always people hanging around there, but thank goodness no one saw me during my humble little photo shoot.
