I envy you bloggers who always have an amazing photo location for your blog shots. I do almost all my Visible Monday pics on our balcony because: 1) it’s covered from the weather; 2) it’s (mostly) private; 3) the light is good; and 4) it’s convenient. The pale yellow paint out there on the balcony is a good backdrop, and of course there is ceramic kitty to lighten things up.
Finding a memorable photo shoot location is no challenge in NYC, where I’ll be next week. I love all cities’ street art, and am drawn to the juxtaposition of plain and artsy. Our small downtown has a few good spots but I’m wearing them out.
I like this downtown Melbourne, Florida location, with the weathered column and modern stone building:
Above, I’m in disheveled all-black, but feeling cheery. My stylist and I cannot seem to get the yellow out of my gray hair – it’s persistent. She thinks it’s from using minoxidil. If you’ve had any success in this area, please pass on your tips.
Now for some artistic photo shoots, take a moment to enjoy these fab over-40 women of Visible Monday:
Rely on Mother Nature: Tiina of Elegance Revisited is often in a gorgeous natural setting, or in the charming streets of her part-time home in Finland. She has a great eye.
Build it yourself: Suzanne of of Suzanne Carillo has natural outdoor settings in the woods, and a collection of brilliant backdrops in her home. She always captures a great pic.
OK, we can’t top this every day: BiTi of Pret-A-Vivre is in Rome, and doing as the Romans do – looking terrific in front of an ancient arch. I need this.
Stay fabulous, wear what you love every day, and enjoy every sandwich, xo
