It may come as a surprise to many, but I actually still hate posing for blog photos. I absolutely love dressing up but pretending to be a 5’3 non-skinny model whilst people walk by and stare at you part, not so much. If I’m lucky they just look for a couple of seconds and go away. Some of them just stay there and look at you for minutes which I have to be honest are the creepiest couple of fellas. And sometimes they talk, make jokes, get interested in your camera, suggest you a more “colorful” wall or generally ask questions about what the hell you’re doing.
The funniest one we ever got were the couple living across one of the walls we frequently shot coming up at us and asking why we always take photos there, if it’s an important wall or not – they were pretty relieved when after a year they finally figured out that we were not insane. This weekend however a pass-byer unknowingly named the post by yelling out “Nouvelle Manteaux de 2016” as he walked away. Thank you stranger, yes it’s THE way to wear your coat in ’16, you’re the master.
