testing

10/12/2013


what i'm wearing:
urban outfitters paisley shirt
F&F black faux fur gilet*
primark ankle boots

not my most flattering of images but i'm testing taking my photographs outside and what it will be like with positioning etc. i don't really like how it seems to have added a few lbs to my legs (why camera? why?!) but maybe that's just about learning the best way to position my tripod. even though it's dry and sometimes sunny outside at the moment it's so blooming freezing! by the end my wee nose was bright red. when it's this cold it makes me think we may aswell have snow so then at least i know to wrap up. that being said even though it will make the commute to work x100 times more difficult, i am wishing for a white christmas this year. i know that this year the chances of snow does not seem very likely, but it just instantly makes me feel festive. as we've only had a brief spell of snow at the moment it doesn't feel like christmas is only a fortnight away. i want be wrapped head to toe in layers paired with a matching hat, scarf and gloves, then finishing it off with big thick boots. does anyone else feel that way?

p.s i've found a nifty little tool online that calculates what the chances are of your region getting snow on christmas day. click here if you want to check it out. apparently my area has a 46% chance!
