The night before, have a mildly angsty rifle through my wardrobe trying to find something blog-worthy that you haven't already seen before. Decide that I don't own any nice clothes. Give up and go to bed.
In the morning, go "argh" and shove on something that looks vaguely presentable.
Give up tea break to:
Go and stand in the freezing cold by my beloved brick wall.
Hi, brick wall! You are looking bricktastic today.
Having had to put sensible spare flats on to get to the brick wall, swap for shoes I've actually been wearing.
Prop camera up on picnic table, check I've got the settings right and fire up the multishot option.
Try my utmost to avoid being seen by any passing gardeners/visitors/school children. This often to leads to photos such as this:
Keep coat on initially, then decide that despite the freezing conditions, it really must come off at some point. Take a minimum of 50 photos.
Decide I look like a troll in all of them and ponder whether I'll ever be brave enough for an outtakes post. Attempt to distract from this by taking arty-ish closeups of the jewellery.
Run back inside and have v. large cup of coffee to warm self up.
Give up lunch break to:
Groan almightily at the amount of them where I'm either looking gormless or have managed to zoom in too much and chop my feet or head off.
Narrow it down to a few that I don't actively loathe. Crop, resize, alter the exposure if necessary.
Upload to Blogger and edit the HTML coding so they show up as a decent size. Tag, add links, loudly curse Blogger's really annoying habit of inserting random coding in places and making it look a mess.
Get massively sidetracked by work (yeah, lunch breaks are a notional concept here).
Remember I haven't finished, go back and write something vaguely interesting to accompany it. Usually fail.
Think "oh feck it" and hit "publish post" anyway.
Feel guilty about my shocking lack of replies to comments.
