Gratuitous portraits, chicago edition

Considering when I met him, J barely knew what an SLR was, I'd say he's blossomed into quite the photographer. Now when we head out on photo walks or travel anywhere, he usually gets the 5D while I shoot with the Contax. It's cool that we can geek out over awesome light or backgrounds together (usually he gets more technical than I care to know!). So as I wait for my Chicago film to be ready, I can share some stuff he took (processed by me). Whee!

On an unrelated note, I was very uncomfortable in glasses until fairly recently. I suffered a pretty bad infection back after a trip to China (I was an idiot to wear contacts on the 13-hour plane ride back) and my eyes have never been quite the same - they are extremely sensitive and dry now, i.e, they get bloodshot all too easily. Of course, I rebelled a lot and wore contacts despite doctor's warnings. Thank you, Warby Parker, for letting me feel just as "pretty" and confident in this trendy pair. :P I still feel different in glasses, but in a good way. Now if someone could only make fog-proof glasses for nasty summer days and eating hot soup...

  8. I know what you mean! I always chose designer glasses, but they still made me look like a really strict Catholic school teacher until last week, when i got a pair of huge Zadig & Voltaire glasses. Now I look so much better and hipper. If I had waited a few months, I might have been able to get glasses from Warby Parker or Bon look but i couldn't wait. Your glasses seem really cute. What frame is that?

  9. I love your trench coat! I've been searching for a trench that looks good for my short frame.

    And my boyfriend is just like J. He knows all about the technical stuff and I just try to take a nice photo.
