Take me to the place where you go where nobody knows...

photos by Tom b.

- vintage dress via 1385
- 70s navy espadrilles
- vintage Coach purse
- listening to: Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory? "Don't Look Back in Anger"

When we were out taking these photos I spotted that old broken down truck and thought it would be the perfect place to plop down and take a few shots. Little did I know that the location had already been claimed... by a huge nest of yellow wasps! In that last photo, my left hand is about three inches from the nest. Ick! Once I spotted the nest we quickly moved out of the way and left the wasps to do their thing.

When it came time to edit the photos, I kept wondering, "what in the world is that on my leg?" Upon closer inspection I realized that Tom had unwittingly perfectly captured one of the wasps mid-flight to the nest! Click here to see the super-duper close up! Ha, ha!

These are great photos! I love your bag and your dress.
Ha! The wasp. It seems that spring and summer shooting could be full of flying bugs:) This weekend I took some photos of my dog and unwilingly captured a fly, here's the photo. And my dog isn't a fly lover, he's always trying to catch them:)

I love the little bits of red on your dress and how it kinda matches your hair... your purse and tattoo also match your hair and dress! I just really love the color and style of your hair. Can you tell? Ha ha. Anyways, these pictures are so quality and look great!

oh Jennifer, these photos are so beautiful. perfect lighting and perfect dress. i love how casual the shoes are too. you look like your should be baking a pie or hanging dresses up on the clothesline, typical womanly duties of that era. i love the shot of you by the truck and the fact that Tom caught that wasp gunning for the nest!

Jenni said...

Aiieee! Wasps are frightening. That last picture is kind of awesome, though--it looks like a tattoo. :D
I love this dress, by the way. I will be dressing in something like that pretty much every day this summer, I feel.
