The Muse: Stupid, Silly, Snowy

So if you live in the Northeast you probably woke up to several (and by several I mean nine) inches of snow this morning. I confess I've been a bad blogger, I have let the cold weather keep me inside, and to be honest I don't really like to take pictures inside. They are ten times the work of photos taken in natural light because indoor ambient lighting turns everything yellow. As much as I have a burning desire to look like one suffereing from a liver disease, vanity prevents me from taking such photos. HTen again taking photos outside has an equal amount of drawbacks, especially for someone who takes their own photos. Case and point you wind up with photos that look like this:

Where you are blown to hell by the wind and your teeth are chattering so bad that you end up with jowls and a double chin in every photo. Its easy to see why I opted out of posting photos that particular day. I f the weather is wet using a timer to take photos can be tricky because you need to protect the camera, and when its cold you don't really want to take of your coat and leave it off as you run back and forth to set the timer on the camera. Alas that is my lot as a blogger and I do enjoy the experience greatly no matter how I may grumble. That being said I paid my penance ten fold when i decided to ditch the coat and do something really stupid. Take outfit photos in a blizzard around five o'clock last night in a parking lot. Needless to say towards the end I was getting a little punchy, silly, and not to mention frostbitten. But its all for you my friends.

Jumping for joy even when it captures you in a rather unflattering light? Yes definitely frostbite setting in

So then I skipped back to the car and dried off...sort of
