I'm not Mary Poppins


I'm wearing:

1. Black funnel mac, from Asos.
2. Tribal print t-shirt, from Zara.
3. Skinny jeans, from Zara.
4. Leather lace-up boots, from Asos.
5. Umbrella.


If it's raining and you have an umbrella, what's the logical, sane, thing to do? Of course, jumping and climbing light posts and staying out getting wet, right? At least for me, that's completely normal. This shoot was particularly challenging because the floors were all slippery and, yes, the rain was quite obnoxious. 

My friend and photographer for the day, Fer, was stuck inside the car and taking the photos from the window (completely dry) while I was out and about jumping like crazy. The thing is, how often can you really do a jumping-in-the-rain shoot? Almost never. It was my golden opportunity. 

Fortunately, my awesome black jacket repels water magically, and the boots didn't let any water on my hobbit feet. I really liked the contrast between the bold tribal print and the simplicity of the other pieces. I must admit, even the umbrella looked good. It was a nice touch. He. 

// Si está lloviendo y tienes una sombrilla, ¿qué es lo lógico, cuerdo, por hacer? Por supuesto, brincar, escalar postes de luz y quedarse en la intemperie para ser mojado por la lluvia. ¿Cierto? Por lo menos para mi, eso es completamente normal. Estas fotos fueron particularmente difíciles porque la acera estaba resbalosa y, sí, la lluvia era molesta. 

Mi amiga y fotógrafa del día, Fer, estuvo feliz y seca dentro del carro tomando las fotos desde la ventana mientras yo estaba afuera saltando como loco. La cosa realmente es, ¿cuántas veces puedes hacer sesiones de fotos en plena lluvia? Casi nunca. Era mi oportunidad de oro. 

Por suerte, mi gran chamarra negra repelió el agua mágicamente y las botas no dejaron que mis horribles pies de hobbit se mojaran. Me gustó mucho el contraste entre la playera con estampado tribal salvaje y la simplicidad del resto de las piezas. Debo admitir, incluso, que la sombrilla se vio bien. Fue un buen toque. Ja. 


I'm recovering from a nose surgery but that doesn't mean I'll not be posting, maybe only less frequently, but I'm still here and, hopefully, will breathe better. 

Estoy recuperándome de una cirugía de nariz pero eso no significa que dejaré de postear, tal vez sólo baje la frecuencia pero aquí sigo y, con suerte, respiraré mejor.

X, Hen.
