If only the sun could get higher...

So glad to be back to my regularly scheduled programming. Over the holidays I managed to add a cape to my wardrobe! I found it on my trip to Canmore for only $20! I've been looking for one for ages but they are always out of my price range so I was rather excited when I saw it and couldn't wait to get out in it. When I got back from taking these pictures I looked a mess. I ripped my tights, my legs were numb, cape was all caught up under my tripod bag and I was sweating and freezing at the same time. The picture of beauty!

Last night the manfriend and I were talking about getting a video of my meandering from up high with the quad-copter. I showed him the WishWishWish videos  for inspiration. I think we will wait until there is colour in the world again. Endless white is not really that interesting. Hopefully 2011 will hold some cool and creative things for Chesterfield. By the way, check out my About and FAQ section I just added and let me know what you think!

  2. Oh my goodness...I am SO envious of your cape. It's gorgeous. Love these photos too, the snow and setting look so beautiful :]

  3. Love the new sections, love the cape. And I don't think you should be afraid to shoot in the snow for lack of interest. If you wear a super bold color I actually think it could be really dramatic. BUT YOU WOULD FREEZE TO DEATH. Which means no more Chesterfield. So prolly a good call. ;)
