What you don't see

A warning that this collage contains an unnecessarily generous amount of pictures of yours truly, but I thought it'd be fun to show some "behind the scenes" from the Stone Barns Center trip. These are pretty tame actually - no teetering on chairs, hanging off trees, laying on the ground (hey, there was a lot of farm animal poop) or anything like that. Still, this was pretty much the making of the post down there (yeah, that one). At such a photogenic location like this one, it's hard not to have my finger on the shutter and face buried in my camera the entire time. It didn't stop me from enjoying the charm and beauty of it though. In fact, I sometimes think being so camera focused helps me appreciate the place even more, and I can't imagine experiencing it any other way. It's probably frustrating for my photography uninclined friends though, and I really appreciate when they can understand my bolting from place to place or else lingering around one spot for too long.

I just find some of these shots amusing, heh heh.

Thanks to JJ for these pictures. :)

  2. Too cute, master in action. Thanks for the BTS. I was thinking "hey, zen, she shoots with both eyes closed..."

    Also envious that you can shoot one-handed; my stuff looks like it was taken by a swinging monkey. Okay, maybe it was.

    Thanks to the shooter that caught you, too; only see shadow once.

  3. Dang, you are stylin'! Boots + jacket = win. I love seeing "behind the scene" shots, so this was great.

    And I feel the same way with my friends -- they're so patient with me lingering and dawdling along to take pics, but I always feel bad at making them wait.

  9. I have always been curious on how you actually manage to take pictures almost everywhere you go? Do you actually carry your camera along to everywhere you go? Just wondering! :P
