Bird's Eye View


I hope everyone had a fun-filled New Year's Eve like me - sipping wine spritzers while watching Inception for the third time! I actually fell asleep long before midnight. Oh well!

I've finally got some "robot" pictures to show you! The manfriend likes to build planes and helicopters (among a ton of other things). Lately he had been building a tri-copter but when that wasn't working as he wanted it he splurged and bought a quad-copter. He added his fisheye camera and now we have some aeriel photos of my outfits! Just what everyone needed! Usually he uses the camera on the planes to take HD video along rivers, fields, cliffs, etc. Anyways this is our first go at it and it was weird to take pictures with someone else involved. Half way through I said, "I dont know what to do...I'll just lean against this tree all nonchalantly!" We will have to keep practicing as you can't really see the outfit too much. Four sets of spinning blades of death are unsettling for close ups...

toque - uo
cardigan - j-crew
shirt - french connection
jeans - h&m



The Quad-copter.

  3. These photos are awesome! I'm so impressed with how they turned out. Is there some way able to view the camera screen while down below to make sure you're in the picture?
