Festival Photography Fail

Long time no see. Now that I have gotten a split second to exhale for the first time in a week, here I present all the wonderful pictures I took this weekend at Festival International de Louisiane (please note the extreme sarcasm). I have always generally failed at taking pictures of anything anywhere, let alone at an interesting event I will want to remember and share with others. I could venture to the moon and back ending up with nothing to show but a few pictures containing half faces and blurred nothingness.

Not only was I so busy this past week that I had to put the blog in time out, but I was even unsuccessful at documenting my weekend via enchanting photos to make up for it. Typical. This failure happened, embarrassingly enough, also due to tequila technical difficulties. Unfortunately, I temporarily lost the ability to tell whether my Iphone camera was in picture or video mode, so I basically ended up with these photos below… and a bunch of three-second videos of me posing awkwardly waiting for a flash that never came. Lovely.

I also threw in a picture of the most peculiar Diet Coke box I have ever seen, and a picture of me after attempt to coloring my hair “dark red blond” flying solo. Should I stick to hiring the professionals? I feel a bit… little mermaid-ish.

  1. Cool pics! Nice work!

  3. That kitty is adorable! How cute. They always play with the strangest things. Your hair looks lovely too.

  4. Personally, I think your hair looks gorgeous. I am a bit biased towards those gingers, though. That quirky, cute smile help sets the whole look off, too.

  5. 1. Your hair is gorgeous. 2. What mascara do you use? 3. I have also waited for a flash and ended up taking a video–it’s always embarrassing to watch. 4. Yay tequila!

    • I was nervous doing it myself, I had to make two separate trips to Sally’s beauty supply, and I made a mess so thanks a lot for the compliment! I’d SO buy you a shot for that one! I use Covergirl lash blast fusion (it is a orange tube) in very black.
