Behind the scenes at A Safe MooringWednesday, February 29, 2012
Truly great photographs like the one above don't just happen, you know. To misquote the great Dolly Parton, it takes a lot of time and effort to look this half-arsed. And you can't expect The Talent (that's me, obv) to just stand around trying out different hand positions all day. I've got people to see, places to go, Pens to Do. So in these situations, I turn to my trusty stand-in.
Oh dear. Fin, what is that hand position all about? You need to create some shape, dahling.
And is that a snood I spy on that chair?
The hand! It's giant! Zoom out, zoom out!
Oh yeah, you nailed it! Quick, somebody tell The Sartorialist to get himself
round to my living room.
Thumbs up from the crazy leopard-print lady.
We really know how to have a good time in my house.
