*****All photos and links to Windy City Pin-up have been removed from
my blog as I can no longer recommend working with the photographer.*****
On October 22nd I had a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and Sylvia Ji inspired shoot with Windy City Pin-Up. Here are a couple sneak peaks; I should be seeing the proofs this week, so, hopefully I'll have some official edited photos to post in a week or two.
Here are two quick photos I took of the work done by Laura (hair and makeup), however, I promise it does not do the look justice...
Ashlee (the photographer) posted this photo of a photo from the shoot on her Tumblr account.
I have been a member of LiveJournal for a long time (November 20th would have been my seventh anniversary with LiveJournal). Years ago LiveJournal decided to start putting ads on journals of non-paying members. I understood it because they have to pay for everything somehow. However, today, for the first time in a long, long time, I logged out of my LiveJournal and viewed it as a non-member; I wanted to see what visitors to my web-site (http://flyingpurplehippos.com/) saw when they viewed my journal. You know what visitors to my journal were NOT seeing? My journal. I didn't realize until today how intrusive the ads on LiveJournal are. What I saw instead of my journal was an ad floating across the screen that completely blocked out my journal, and required viewers to look at the ad for a required amount of time before they could even view my journal. I have been considering moving my journal for some time, and this was what I needed to convince me. This is the perfect time for a journal move since I am currently working on a redesign of my website, and hoping to add more things to my journal that interest others (tutorials, recipes, etc.).
Thank you for joining me here on my new home at Blogger! Look for the photos from my Day of the Dead/Sylvia Ji inspired shoot within the next couple weeks.
