As the latest photoshoot outcome graces itself across my laptop screen, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the photos barely reflected the difficult and hostile conditions they were conceived from. Even when I was on the grass, I was battling a ferocious, sharp wind that I felt would toss me out to sea. It was even harder to maintain stability whilst standing upon uneven rocky ground in high heels. I can't even begin to describe how freezing cold it was as well. I always get headaches when exposed to these knife-like cold winds- it feels like giant blocks of ice are squeezing your head in!
To top it off were these new Ebay metallic ankle cuffs I had worn out for the first time, just to add a bit of extra embellishment over my new heels. However I had to take them off almost straight away as although they're loose around your ankles, every time the bone there moves (bottom of the tibia?) with the slightest twitch, they will cut your feet like a b*tch.
Luckily these photos ended up masking any remnants of suffering and the sting of buyer's remorse (damn you crappy Ebay cuffs!), and were in my opinion enriched with a sense of serenity and airiness. Despite the harsh conditions, just looking at the amazing rock formations and water in the background makes me feel light, carefree and a sense of knowing that we'll all float on ok- just like a certain band called Modest Mouse once prophesied. (one of my all-time favourite chillout songs!)
