The first thing I have to do here is express the amount of excitement about my new camera (okay, well it's actually mine and my dad's camera, but I just like the way I can say it's mine.) Eeeeeeee!
Okay, now I can carry on with the blog post. So these are the first batch of photos taken on said camera- a Canon 5D to be precise. They were done on an autumn afternoon at a nearby favourite place to walk. It used to be an iron age fort and had views across most of the county.
But on to the outfit! This stunning satin red evening coat was purchased by my Czech Great-Grandma (paternal) in Washinton D.C, America in 1966. I believe it was bought for an important reception.
The vibrancy of the coat complimented the colourful leaves falling around me.
When the coat found its way to me, Babi (my grandma) referred to it as 'The Balenciaga Style Coat.'
As you can probably tell from the nature of my shoots, I love the fantastical, the surreal, myths
and fairytales. I'm really inspired by Tim Walker's photography and I love planning the use of contrast in the resulting photos- even if I'm not taking them! Hence, an evening coat in a wood.
I can't believe the quality of the photos taken with this lens.. I think I'm in love!
The black dress is a WareHouse one found in a charity shop by my mum, the boots (my favourite of the moment!) are also charity shopped and the necklace made from freshly picked berries and leaves was the creation of my lovely mum!
I'd also like to quickly say a huge thankyou to the following people for giving me blog awards..
-Jill of http://streetstylelondon.blogspot.com/ for the 'Over The Top Award.'
-Sophie of http://beautiful-rampage.blogspot.com/ for the 'I think You are an awesome Girl'
-http://expensive-junk.blogspot.com/ (Sorry, didn't know your name) for the 'Splash Award'
I'm sure there was someone else too, but I've completely forgotten. If there is, could you please make yourself known so I can give you credit?
Thankyou so much to all of you! It's really lovely to be acknowledged..
One other thing, I now have over 150 followers. I' really like to thank every single one of you for taking the time to follow me. I can't believe that I didn't even have a blog a few months ago!
