I’m sitting in my bed and thinking that it has been a while since my last blog. Tomorrow I have to be at work at 6am. Yes, don’t envy me please. I’m going to cut this little short , so I hope you don’t mind. My bag of Seedless raisins is next to me.I chose to eat it and not fall into the chocolate trap. What is it with me and chocolate?, very simple I’m very addicted to it and it changes my mood so quickly. I notice that when I eat chocolate, I stop drinking water and I have a swingy mood. So watch out for those mood swings and don’t feed me chocolate please.
On last Saturday I contacted the photographer Garry Wilmore and planned a last minute photo shoot that we did on Sunday. Reason for that is that I was tanned enough for it. I know sounds very silly, but I will explain.I competed on Saturday at the USA dance sport challenge. So as usual I pro tan at home a day before the competition. Since my body had a good color, I thought that the photo shoot would be perfect to do. I met Garry at a dance showcase last year and I saw his shots , he gets great photos. You can check his work on flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/86013963@N00. He has a great portfolio.
I had two things back to back going on last weekend and I was very pleased with the results. If you wonder why am I doing those photo shoots, the answer is obvious : I LOVE TAKING PICTURES . Now that I got that off my chest, I do wish that I get paid for that. But , since I’m rich and I really don’t need the money , I will just do it for fun. I hope you hear the sarcasm in my voice?, oh wait this is a blog ! never mind.
One of the poses that I loved and I challenged myself to do, is to try to use my core and leg strengh to sit in 90 degrees angle and yet sit on what we call ” tipi toes”. The challenge was using the light stand as a support and pressuring my toes to a solid concrete ground. I kept thinking that this has to look EFFORTLESS, like dancing, I cannot show that I’m tensing any muscles. I wanted it to look as if I’m relaxed though I’m not. As you see this is inspired by a dancing move . Dancing, dancing, dancing!
I’m going to bed now, goodnight
