AmandaJ 's Thoughts:

One of the most awkward parts of having a personal fashion blog is capturing the images each week. Lugging around the tripod, searching for new and interesting backdrops, getting the camera to focus on the right thing, and the trickiest of all- bystanders!

On this particular day, I wandered behind a building in not the nicest part of town, set up my tripod and got ready to just get it done and be gone. For starters, a man came out of his house, stood in his front yard, and just sat there smoking and staring at me. Awkward! And as if that wasn’t enough, a man came out of a neighboring building to get his cigarettes and proclaimed how happy he was that he had forgotten his cigs, lest he missed such a sight. Three other guys followed, with awkward, if not crass, remarks and half hearted attempted at making conversation.

“If anyone bothers you, just let me know! I’ll take care of ’em!” Ummm… you, sir. You are bothering me.
