A Little Ray of Lemonshine


You may notice that mother dear and I am exploring much more.. and you are right! We have banished ye ole garage door to Azkaban, and now must find refuge in taking pictures in other places. Fortunately, there is this lovely little neighborhood that looks old-timey and Victorian-French that has lots of trails, neat wall textures, and pretty trees that aren't all awkward (no offense, trees behind my house). Luckily, lots of other photographers can be seen taking pictures of families there, too, and although my camera is not nearly as huge as theirs, it's at least normal enough to see a momma taking pictures of her daughter for uh, some super lovely memories. I'm so glad mom is willing to take some time out of her day to help me take pictures, along with the things we encounter along the way, like mosquitoes and squishy mud. My pictures would be terrible without her. Thank you, momma!

So yes, school has started, and hopefully will be a bit more manageable this year since I only have one AP class and three art classes which I can hopefully glide through since I have lots of ideas. I hope I can find more time to post, take pictures, and read all of your blogs. Hopefully after these first few weeks, everything will have a nice, even pace that I can keep up with, because right now I'm feeling like an obese 80-year old who just ran a marathon. I will do my best, citizens!

The bright yellow socks are a fabulous idea with those cut-out pumps -- it really accentuates them!

Lots of art classes sounds like a great schedule!!

You look beautiful! I love the background as well.

And don't you just love the first few weeks of school? When it's still exciting, that is. Ha. Enjoy it!

Thank you for your comment, by the way. ily<3

PS: (What a long comment, right?) I love the socks with those shoes! I tried to do something like that and was teased by my family to no avail.

Charmalade said...

I think those socks are ADORABLE I love them with that outfit. And I'm slightly jealous that your mom is so patient and takes good pictures; whenever I ask my mom to oblige me, she's all huffy and exasperated and it doesn't help me. D:

And sexydancetime indeed with Alejandro, yessss I love it.

I love the pop of colour in the socks! That's true, when it was summer all I wanted was winter so that I could wear tights...now I really want to go out without a cardigan/jacket. Never satisfied! :(

Lucky to have your mom taking pictures at you, I have to manage it myself, or with a little help of my brother, who wants to do it as fast as possible.
Love your outfit; specially, the socks:-)

I LOVE THIS LOOK. You kind of remind me of a bumble bee with the black and yellow and stripes but I MEAN THAT IN THE BEST WAY EVER. I LOVE BUMBLE BEES. (Well, they're cute to look at! AND YOU LOOK SO CUTE.) I'm actually a little in love with those socks. They're fabbbb.

And good luck with school and jazz! 3 art classes? STRIKE ME JEALOUS. Do you go to an art school? Must post pictures of your creations as they come!

Black white and yellow look great together.

erin :) said...

I feel like an 80 year old athlete all the time and I'm afraid i may feel that way when school starts. I'm kinda scared, but I shall leave it in God's hands cuz I'm too worried. xD I wish I was as snappy as youa bout college apps. What did you write about for your essay? That's just what really scares me. I don't konw how to start especially - intro-wise and writer's block-wise. D:

Hope school's great! :)
