Shock Me Like an Electic Eel


I was planning on taking self-portraits with these electrical towers. I passed by them everyday on my way to elementary school in the typical, big, yellow bus so they remind me of my childhood. When I was about to head over one of my best friends called me and told me to pick him up from the train station. Therefore, I casually brought up having to take pictures for my blog and he offered to help out. After a quick lesson on how to use my camera, he got the hang of it and snapped some shots. I'm getting good at this whole enslaving my friends thing ;)


(dress wet seal, skirt some nyc boutique, belt h&m, shoes target)


I'm volunteering at a place called Better World Cafe in a couple of hours and I can't wait! It's a cafe where you can choose how much you want to pay for your food and no one is turned down. All of the workers are volunteers and no one goes hungry. If you guys are ever in the Central NJ area you should definitely check it out. :)


My friend snapped this shot above because he thought it was funny I was only a little dot. He's stupid. Plus, now you can see all the weeds and the photo location isn't as beautiful. It's all about capturing the right angle. :P

  12. Another great location! How did you find all these amazing places to take pictures at? I'm zeeaallloouuss :)

    LOL @ enslaving friends to take blog pictures! I should start doing that too. I'm too shy to pose in front of a real person, hence, self timer and a tripod are my BFFs :D

    And of course, LUV LUV LUV the outfit :)

  16. My boyfriend loves taking pictures of me where I'm a little dot! It's sort of dumb, but I also sort of love it. And I love that shade of lavender on you! It's fantastic. Better World Cafe sounds wonderful--I just signed up for volunteer at the local Crisis center here because I missed volunteering so much!

  20. You have GOT to teach me this whole "enslaving friends for photos"-thing, Jen! I am in need of a photograph, but I'm too shy and embarassed.. :P

    You have a way of finding the best locations. They always compliment your outfit, for some strange reason.. ^^

  26. I love the picture where you are a 'dot' - it seems very artsy, and I think the weeds make it even artsy-er!

  27. Cutie!
    And don't call your photographer stupid, he knows the angles that will make you look bad.

    P.S. I've heard of the Better World Cafe on t.v. I think it's a pretty cool idea. Good for you to volunteer there!
