Lace, Harley Boots and Photographs.....

" IT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE TO SHOW YOUR DREAM  TO SOMEONE ELSE "
ERMA BOMBECK


I GOTTA SAY A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED YESTERDAY ;)
IT'S FUNNY, BUT WHEN YOU START LOOKING FOR THE 'CLUES' 
THAT LEAD YOU TO YOUR TRUE NATURE, THEY POP UP VERY QUICKLY.



I STARTED THE "FASHION AND PHILOSOPHY" SERIES A WHILE BACK, TO LET OTHER'S IN AND SEE WHAT MAKES ME TICK. A FORTY-SOMETHING WHO HAS THE KIND OF THOUGHTS I HOPE WE ALL HAVE, AND A VENUE FOR SHARING THE SOLUTIONS TO THOUGHTS AND QUESTIONS REGARDING ART AND STYLE FOR THE OVER-40 CROWD, OR ANYONE WHO SHARES MY PASSION FOR FASHION (WHICH INVOLVES REACHING DEEPER THAN MY CLOSET SOMETIMES).



THE FIRST CLUE WAS IN THE WONDERFUL COMMENTS 
WHICH GAVE ME A SENSE OF FRIENDSHIP AND SUPPORT. 
THE OTHER WAS THE LOST FOLLOWER I GOT ;) 
BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, FOR THE FIRST TIME, 
THE LACK OF SELF-DOUBT THAT CAME WITH IT.
SO, THE CLUES I RECEIVED WERE TO DO AND BE WHATEVER I CHOOSE AND STOP WORRYING SO MUCH ABOUT THE SMALL STUFF AND JUST CREATE. 
(THE ORIGINAL GOAL OF THIS BLOG IN THE FIRST PLACE)....


SO AS A WANNA-BE PHOTOGRAPHER, 
I MOVED MY CAMERA WAY UP HIGH ONTO A TABLE AND BEGAN TO SHOOT. AFTERWARDS, I PUT MY ON MY HEADPHONES, AND BEGAN TO LISTEN TO THE BLUES, WATER MY SOUL AND ENJOY CREATING JUST FOR THE SAKE OF CREATING. WITH LACE AND HARLEY BOOTS, MY HAT AND FREEDOM FROM MY SELF-DOUBT, HERE ARE SOME SHOTS I REALLY LIKE. (PLUS I WAS HAVING A REALLY GOOD HAIR DAY ;) ALL IMAGES WERE 
SELF-EDITED, TOO ! 
(YES, I AM BRAGGING, SO SHOOT ME)
GET IT? :) - SHOOT ME....
TOTAL IMAGES: 18
MY GOAL TO BE A PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER BY 50 IS STILL ON! (IF YOU'RE ON A FIRST-NAME BASIS WITH SANTA, PLEASE TELL HIM I NEED SOME NEW LENSES)...

ONWARD AND UPWARD,
INWARD AND OUT.....

WHEN I STAND BEFORE GOD AT THE END OF MY LIFE I WOULD HOPE THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE A SINGLE BIT OF TALENT LEFT, AND COULD SAY
"I USED EVERY THING YOU GAVE ME"

I wish you were closer so you could do my photography...it is my weak area...but what is great is thatwe meet so many women with different gifting in this venue! Wow, what we could do if we were in the same town! Your photography is excellent and I would recommend you to anyone...for now...I really want that lace skirt!

Tried to comment on the previous post earlier this evening and could not get the comment system to come up...I know I go through periodic doubts about the blogging. Perhaps it is my way of continuing to have a period...

The second photo is fantastic and that scarf ring is genius.

This is my fave outfit on you so far, which is saying alot, because you wear so many great outfits! I love the whole vibe- you look relaxed and like you're the life of the party. Which you are!
