These photos were taken during our five-minute break in French class, so I didn't really have the very best pick of locations. Most of the campus is decidedly unattractive, with dull gray blocky buildings all stained with age and dampness. Only the more recently designed places (the new library, or the research facilities) have any sort of architectural uniqueness, but these state-of-the-art structures seem a little out of place among what's commonly considered an eyesore of a campus. I usually try to take pictures in the nicer (or at least somewhat less hideous :D) areas of uni, but today you get to see the reality. How generous am I? ;)
You know what's awkward? Having people watch you while you get your picture taken! I've gotten to the point now where I'm comfortable posing near strangers, but when it's people I know, it's always a bit uncomfortable having to explain about "my style blog" without sounding narcissistic or conceited. I've yet to have a random stranger come up and say to me, "I read your blog!" but I'm pretty sure the prospect of that happening is remote at best at the moment, so I'm not going to stress myself out about thinking of an adequate and non-awkward response.
Question time! For those with blogs, have people ever asked you what you're doing while you're taking outfit photos? How do/would you respond? I need tips haha! :D
