96 degrees in the shade

hotII

I returned from camp on Saturday, enjoyed some Thai food and a few drinks, and began resting for the next adventure: I’m flying to California the day after tomorrow! I’m being sponsored to shoot a friend’s wedding. Flying me out and putting me up, they claimed, was cheaper than hiring a local photographer. It’s my second working vacation in two weeks, but who I am to turn down free tickets to the San Francisco Bay? Not a damn fool, that’s who.

In my precious few days at home, I’ve finished sewing a killer dress for the wedding, ordered a backup camera battery and five spare SD cards ($19.99 on Amazon!), and fretted magnificently about navigating the airport by myself. I arrive in San Fran at 1 am Friday morning, and I’ll have to keep track of hundreds of dollars worth of camera equipment while my body thinks it’s the crack of dawn. Anyone want to come chaperone me? I’m taking applications.

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.

  1. I used to be SO afraid of travel and airports – but luckily, there are signs EVERYWHERE that guide you where you gotta go and once you’re in your terminal (each airline is assigned, etc.), you can’t really get TOO lost. You just have to get to your assigned gate! When in doubt, there are employees everywhere but you’ll be fine!! Once you do it once, you’ll be a pro!

  2. That sounds thoroughly exciting! What a wonderful opportunity and way to play an integral part in yours friends’ big day. I hope all goes well and that you have an awesome time (I feel you regarding airports – they’re not high up on my list of fave places either).

    *PS* Great outfit! I love your Enidd Collins (or EC style, if it’s not one of her designs) bag.
