How to Channel Your Inner Greta Garbo in Photos

Dear Lydia,

Sometimes the photos you take and the photos you think you take are quite different, you know? I didn’t realize quite how dramatic we looked– me with my “I want to be alone” pose and Nnenna doing her best to totally stare that squirrel down. How dare you try to steal the spotlight, Ms Squirrel!

Yeah, we’re just a bunch of crazies. We know.

    seems like whenever bloggers get together, the photos get extra crazy… I think after a while the idea of photographing yourself everyday feels quite routine and I am very serious – all business – about doing it. So having another blogger with you tends to bring out the idea that yes, we are posing for photos for a blog, and this is a rather silly, and fun thing to do.

      Hmmm yes, that’s true. We can get extra silly and fun together.

      I’m still determined to put Nnenna in the middle of the crosswalk, taxis and skyscrapers behind her. I want photos like that for everyone.
