Outfit: Black gold

Whenever I pick a location for photos for the blog, I think of a place that is easy on the eyes and beautiful--albeit in a pretty standard way. You know that I like a forest or a field, an old building or a small town are always welcome, even a railroad track is romantic in its own way. So when we came upon this coal silo by total surprise and Bartek took out the camera eager to take photos here, I was hesitant at first. I thought: is that a backfrop pretty enough for people to enjoy looking at? Then I decided to jump right into it because, well, I loved the place. You see, I have a soft spot for all things that are abandonded and on the verge of falling apart and, as in this case, industrial and made out of concrete. I thought it would tell an interesting story and show something else on this blog filled with simple and pretty pictures.

In the end, I'm glad I went for it. This may not be the most creative outfit on my blog, ever (although I am wearing a knit tee which is highly unusual for me) but the pictures are so different this time. Are they challenging? Perhaps. Most of all, though, they document a very authentic moment in my life: when we stumbled upon an intruguing place and crouched under a fence to get closer to it. Exploring something out of the ordinary is exciting and memorable and what better way to remember than take a picture?

  1. I always love the contrast of fashion with industrial settings. Your photos turned out great!

  2. I love all your posts, but I have to admit that the unusual settings - night, this, the recent sea feature - are exquisite! Thank you so much for pushing the aesthetics of fashion blogging,
