So before going to bed tonight, I have decided to make this post into some sort of bedtime story for myself. So I guess I should star with a traditional opening...so..here it goes...
Once upon a time there was a girl called Ariana who happened to have a magical device that with just one click it would capture black and white images...I think my inner child just gave up on that attempt. Instead, I will just behave like another regular young adult and will just stick to ordinary yet briefly entertaining prose to tell you a little bit about today's story.
The other day, I was kind of assisting my mate Andre during a photo-shoot with one of my best friends and personal chocolate muse (Yes, I have officially taken the liberty of naming her like that, conclusion: one must not necessarily be a former member of the Beatles in order to receive a royal title...just don't get carried away and decide to do it with your pet). Anyways, while doing the make up and some styling,I guess that the whole "forest environment" got to me and made me turn into a sort of creepy spy with a camera as her only weapon. I was not planning on taking any photos, but a calling is a calling my friends and one should not dare to fight destiny right? However, I decided to remain kind of anonymous during the shoot and try to capture scenes through the eyes of someone who is behind the scenes. I had so much fun lurking around and trying to somehow disguise my subjects as I was trying to disguise myself.
Wishing everyone an amazing weekend!
This is the beauty about improvisation. There are no protagonists, it is all about the stories that are to be created. I ended up being no longer behind but in front of the camera and even had some sort of duet performance if I had to give it a "royal title" once again.
