Today was one of those nothing-goes-quite-right-and-you-can’t-find-your-groove kind of days.
As we were closing up the shop at the end of the day, C asked me if we’d taken photos yet. To which I replied, “photos of what?” “Uh, your 30 for 30 post.” Oh yeah… oops. There were only precious moments of good light left, and we were running out to meet someone for drinks at the bar down the street, so we decided we’d snap a few shots when we got there. Then I (self-proclaimed art director extraordinaire that I am) suggested we get all artsy and creative by taking them in front of the “billiards” sign at the pool hall a few doors down from the bar we were headed to. And that’s where things went downhill.
There was a guy messing with his motorcycle in the parking space about 50 feet in front of me, and people eating dinner in the restaurant next door, and that (compounded with the grossness of my day) resulted in some serious camera shyness and all-around awkwardness on my part. I’m still working on this taking-pictures-of-yourself-in-public thing, and I started trying to be all non-chalant, and pose without looking like I was posing, and my timing got all off with C, and we were in a hurry, and things just weren’t gelling, and…
Seriously, you guys, the shots that resulted from today’s little photo session were aw-ful. They ranged from over-smiling (like the one above) to deer-in-the-headlights stares to weird arm placement.
Naturally, since I got a good chuckle from them, I thought I should share them in case any of you had a similarly less-than-stellar day. And, just for the heck of it, throw up a poll to determine the winner of Awkwardest of Them All. Because that’s how we roll in the old U-S-of-A.
So, here's your chance to pick your favorite ridiculous blooper shot. Which deserves the title of Awkwardest of Them All?Wearing: INC tunic (Macy's sale), my beloved jeggings, Candie's boots, bamboo scarf c/o Casualmere.
