Windy times call for tough boots

San Francisco weather is comparable to an indecisive person.
I decided to take some photos and the wind was really uncooperative, I think I have more shots of me eating my hair than not.

So its been over two weeks since I started this blog, and I like to take pictures outside in neighborhoods where there aren't too many people around so as to avoid the "what the hell are you doing?" stare. Unfortunately many a time I've been caught in the act by the random passersby.

We're all guilty of being judgemental towards others, but I was brought up to think "accept people for who they are".On the street, even in a colorful city such as SF, you tend to get strife for expressing yourself by way of clothing/accessories, depending on which neighborhood you're in, as if people don't want you to be out of the norm, or too different. You'd think our society would be more accepting after all these years of shock therapy with the outlandish trends we've seen so far.

So, fellow lady bloggers, how do you feel and deal with odd looks when you're rocking your fav threads on the street ?

  5. I absolutely love these pictures, the wind in your hair is gorgeous (although I get the part with your mouth being filled with hair, haha). Love the jacket and the boots.

    I live in Helsinki (in Finland, that is) and I've been photographing for 6 years now. I've been a blogger for about two months now. I've come to the same conclusion, young women are the worst. I know I sound like an idiot saying this, but I just despise the people who can't keep their nose out of other people's stuff. I usually take my outfit pics on the beach, which is a common hang-around place for teens, and I'm getting used to them looking at me.. My bf just tells me to ignore them and "nail" the photoshoot. ;)

    Follow each other ?

    Kisses !
