Sometimes I feel like hiding out. After a weekend of holiday parties and socializing it’s nice to sit with a cup of tea and just stare out into space. I consider myself as extrovert but as I’ve gotten older I definitely need my alone time. My time to just sit and think or read and meditate.
It’s been a few months since I’ve been photographed in sunglasses for the blog. Originally it was something I was doing intentionally, I think it’s nice to be able to see people’s eyes when you’re talking to them and reading my blog is sort of like talking to me. Sunglasses definitely create a barrier between the viewer and the viewee and it felt nice to take down that barrier and be seen. But I have to say that it was sort of a relief to hide out behind a pair of shades for this shoot. Not only does it make it easier to edit the photos because I don’t have to worry about my eyes doing anything weird, sunglasses also make it much easier to be photographed in bright daylight!
