Deja Vu 2
Does this setting look familiar? That's because, last summer, I shot an outfit post here (check it out, if you haven't already!). I'm usually against repeating locations because I feel like it's an excuse to not doing my job, I always try to find new cool spots that I haven't shown to you guys before but I have to say, there are exceptions, especially when I travel, and this mural is a big one. 

Last time I was here, I remember everything flowed perfectly, the lighting was on point, no people were around, my outfit was good... That shoot went very smoothly. This time around, things were a bit different: the light wasn't perfect, my outfit was cool but my hair needed some work... I don't know, it was the same but it didn't feel the same, you know what I mean? In the end, I really liked the photos and I think I started off this trip to Sacramento on the right foot, but that's not the end of the story.

Tons of people think of creativity and originality as finding something no one has before, creating new things; and some of that is right but I also feel like repeating things and changing certain elements of the activity can also count as creating something original. It's about rearranging what's already there because, let's face it, it's extremely difficult to find completely new products, especially when it comes to blogging and photography. I would like it if people started seeing things that way, thinking about originality as something flexible and not necessarily as something totally new, wouldn't you?

// ¿Esta pared se ve familiar? Es porque, el verano pasado, tomé fotos de atuendo aquí (¡puedes verlo si aún no lo has hecho!). Usualmente, no me gusta repetir locaciones porque siento que es como una excusa y que no estoy haciendo mi trabajo, siempre trato de buscar nuevos lugares padres que no haya enseñado antes pero, debo decir, hay excepciones, especialmente cuando trabajo, y este mural es una de ellas.

La última vez que estuve aquí, recuerdo que todo fluyó perfectamente, la luz estaba perfecta, no había personas alrededor, mi atuendo se veía bien... Esa sesión de fotos salió muy fácil. Esta vez, las cosas fueron un poquito diferentes: la luz no era perfecta, mi atuendo estaba bien pero mi cabello se rebeló... No sé, fue igual pero no se sintió igual, ¿saben a lo que me refiero? Al final, realmente me gustaron las fotos y creo que empecé este viaje a Sacramento con el pie derecho, pero ese no es el final de la historia.

Mucha gente ve la creatividad y la originalidad como encontrar algo que nadie ha visto antes, crear nuevas cosas; y sí, hay algo de razón en eso, pero siento que repetir algo y cambiar ciertos aspectos de esa actividad también cuenta como crear algo original. Se trata de recaudador lo que ya está ahí porque, seamos honestos, es extremadamente difícil encontrar un producto completamente nuevo, especialmente cuando se habla de blogs y fotografía. Me gustará que la gente empezara a ver las cosas de esa manera, pensar en originalidad com algo flexible y no necesariamente como algo completamente nuevo ¿a ustedes no?
