I tend to be pretty simplistic in my poses on my blog - especially if someone else is acting as photographer! In that case it is really shyness more than laziness but even when I am taking self-portraits often when I try to pose it can come out looking forced. There are exceptions and if I am in a particularly experimental mood (or bored) I can be found dancing around in my garden trying to capture the silliness. I suppose that's where these photos come in. A lot of times these moods have everything to do with what I'm wearing; the fabric, how it moves, etc. I loved photographing this dress because of it's structured skirt and embroidered fabric. This was actually my birthday dress from last year (thanks, mama!) but I felt like wearing something fun to work today and this is what my tired paws reached for at 9am!
speaking of posing...

shoes: american apparel
The subject mater of this post reminded me of this lovely old Rufus Wainwright tune... "Poses"
