What a dumb day to start doing daily outfit pics

So I have been struggling for a long time with wanting to do outfit pics, but lacking a) the time to shoot, process and post them; and b) a good place to shoot them. I can't really photograph myself anywhere inside my house; I can't find a spot where the lighting and the backdrop will work to get a good head-to-toe shot. And the area around my house just doesn't seem to lend itself to photos, because the ground is very hilly and bumpy, making it tough to set up (or jerry-rig) a tripod for a timer shot.

Anyway, last night I got to thinking that I should just find a spot in town to take my photos. So I picked a park that's right next to my daughter's day care center. I dropped her off this morning and then went to the park to get these shots.




Did I mention that, with the wind chill, it's about -10 today?

    1. Thanks! I bought these red pants on a whim and I wear them ALL the time. I have a real weakness for red if you can't tell!
