This is what happens when your friends in Vienna are from Italy. They dress you up, they make you up, they take photos of you and they make you look like a model. But, wait! Did I say model? OMG, I am not a model, nor do I have the aspiration to be one. On the contrary! I feel very awkward looking at all those photos of myself all over the internet. But yes, we definitely love being creative and taking pictures that tell a story. And when I say pictures, I mean not only pictures of macaron, cupcakes, and Sacher torte, but also pictures of us too. Hence, for me it is more about taking up a role and creating a story, than modeling.
This blog post is made in Austria by the Italians and it took us half of the day to have the result that you see above. Who said taking nice pictures is easy? Not at all! It takes a lot of time and it is hard work. When we were done, we went to our favourite french bistro downtown Vienna, Le Bol, and we are already thinking of our next photo sessions. If you have any idea, let me know. ♥
Here is a collage of some of the photos I took around Vienna on November. Some of you might don’t believe me when I say that I take those photos with my mobile but I really do. By the way, I plan to buy a camera in the near future and then hopefully I will realize other plans that I have had on my mind for a long time.
Anyway, I am glad you follow my Viennese adventures on the streets of Vienna and I hope you enjoy it like I do. By keeping myself busy and doing the things I like, I fight against the winter blues in November when we mostly have cold, dark, short days in Vienna. (And don’t believe me if ever I say that I like to be in Vienna in November! I would rather be in the Southern Hemisphere of Earth, somewhere in Hamilton island, where the temperature hits 20 degrees.)
