We had a random warm day last week. Not warm enough that I was brave enough to get on my bike which is what I'm really dying to do, but warm enough that my first thought was "outfit photos!" I drove to my favorite new place to shoot only to find I couldn't park there. Despite it being "warm" (yeah, high twenties isn't actually warm) there was still snow on the ground and there were massive piles of plowed snow where I normally pull off. My car is kind of a weenie in the snow so I didn't risk getting stuck. I wasn't going to waste a warm day though, I was determined to shoot. I drove around for at least an hour. I kept thinking of all these awesome places, only to get shut down because I couldn't park. I was just about to give up when I spotted this building. I was able to park close, and finally get my photos.
It's funny because a year ago when I moved to Cleveland and was struggling with places to shoot I said something about how no matter what I'd never be someone who was comfortable shooting outfit photos on the sidewalk. While this was in a little more secluded area, it was still in the city, on the sidewalk and there were most definitely people driving and walking (eeeep!!!) past. It probably doesn't sound like a huge deal but this is a big victory for me.
I'm curious to see where I'll be in another year. Maybe I'll actually be good at parking my car. Haha!
