No sound but the wind

Today I’m sharing a little bit of my photography with you. I know, I know, I am by no means a pro at this but I just found these photos to be so magical! Who knew it would be this hard to photograph dandelion sead heads!? We blew about twenty of these and took more than a hundred photos, but only these three turned out good enough. Even on my fastest shutterspeed these little fluffies fly away too fast, haha. 
Last Thursday I met up with a real photographer in Antwerp. She’s asked me to model for her fashion in the studio assignment and I was more than happy to do so! While waiting for her in the Central Station I channeled my inner Laurein / fashionista and drank a not so stylish non-Starbucks take-away latte with hazelnut sirop. Delicious! Note to self: you must do that more often. The shoot was so much fun and apart from the ones where I was trying to balance my clutch on my head all the photos turned out really good. I can’t wait untill she sends them over so I can share them with you. I hope she gets good grades on the assignment too.
For those who asked: my prom pictures still haven’t gone online! I am anxciously waiting for them myself. I hope they turned out better than they did last year, haha. Anyways, i’ll be back on Friday with a new post on The Simplicity Project. Stay tuned!

    These are definitely magical photos. It's reassuring to hear how you had to go through many to get to these three. It makes me feel better that I take dozens just to like a couple. =)

    These really are lovely images.
