i am often pleasantly surprised when my pictures come out well!
i took this picture after my father yelled at me for wearing “inappropriate clothing” to go out for a movie. it was a pair of shorts, with stockings held up by garters. you could barely see the edge of the garters poking out, but that was enough to warrant him yelling at me. i had dressed up in the first place because i wanted to take myself out on a date, to make myself feel pretty and wanted since my boyfriend lives far away and it had been a while since i last saw him. so, after unsuccessfully trying to explain this to my dad (i’m almost 21, i should be able to dress how i want!), i went upstairs and took a million and a half photos of myself. this one came out the best of all.
I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS. The colors, the patterns, the realness of it! I’m sorry that your dad didn’t quite understand your intent but seriously i really love this - i hope you continue to use photography as a healthy outlet.
