My heels have all rebelled against me. I left them all at home when I was in Chennai for the past year, and now every time I step into a pair, I get blisters. Even the most comfortable pair, in which I could walk a whole day (that’s pushing it, maybe half day) refuse to leave my feet in peace. So I’ve taken to living in flats and it’s not such a bad thing. I don’t even feel like buying any heels these days. I guess I can strike off the shoe-crazy part in the about-me section. Wow… who knew!
First, respect to all those models whose job is to pout and pose day in and day out *bows down to them* I have no idea how they do it and how they make it look so easy. I, on the other hand, am a photographer’s dream turned nightmare. I have a photogenic face (or so am told), but getting that face to stay still and look natural is a task not many are willing to take.I keep talking, I keep looking around, I keep making faces, and I.Can’t.Stand.Still. You’d think I’d try a little harder seeing that its my blog and my job in the first place. But no. Add to that humid weather, sweltering heat and a ton of mosquitos attacking me like am their last meal… I am a terror to work with. I also keep fidgeting and looking around to see if anyone is looking at me, which is highly annoying to someone trying to make you look pretty and poised in a picture. I guess this is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to my photographer, for putting up with me and not giving up! (like there’s a choice.. ha!)
That’s actually me swatting away mosquitos which were everywhere! I think we should do a behind-the-scenes post with all the pics that show the struggle we go through to get decent shots.
Tweeting, instagram-ing, whatsapp… phew! Never ending cycle!
