Let’s See How Long I Can Keep Up With This

I think that I need to breathe some life into this blog. Perhaps I could post one photo a day, preferably not a self-portrait as I have my Flickr for that. It’s also about time I practice on taking photos of objects or other people, no matter how boring I find those subjects to be.

Yes. I do not want to take your photo. I am easily exasperated and have difficulties conveying and verbalizing my thoughts (my preferred mode of communication is mind osmosis, what’s yours?). I have a picture, an idea in mind and sometimes, I think I’m the only one who gets it. Thus, I know how to move, I know how to pose, I know how to look at my camera (and nail that shot in fifteen minutes). Other people would probably get it all wrong.

Then, I really don’t know. I have never yet to try it, I might surprise myself.

Unfortunately, this idea came to me at 930 in the evening. When I get home, I’ll be too lazy to take a picture of— I don’t know— my dinner or the best diet pills in the world. So this is today’s photo:

rockabilly Helga

I was aiming for pinup, ended up with rockabilly.

Aren’t you excited for tomorrow’s.

    It looks very American. In a good way, not a trashy way.

    I love how unapologetic you are. Don’t ever change!

    ngayon ko lang napansin yung shadow sa hand mo! :) hehe

    on the good side, taking photos of food make you want to be healthier, at least they say so. :)

    I love taking pictures of my friends and loved ones and catching them off guard — laughing, hugging, being pensive. But only my friends.

    Pag pangit ayaw ko. Such an eyesore.

    I thought no self-portraits? Haha but it’s great Helga. You look great in this pic and I love the concept. You’re right, you nailed it!

    I too have been neglecting my blog. It’s time you get back your interesting writings from your wacky mind. =p
