feminine

Roar.



Here we are... the conclusion of my unplanned shoot.

I realize that I failed to tell you a bit about Ana. I'm pretty sure Ana is somehow related to me -- and not because both of our dad's are from Uruguay -- but because we are insanely ALIKE.




The talking, the obsession with food, the love of fashion, and in other less obvious ways. Like the ease in picking up the phone to ask each other the smallest of opinions; our natural tendencies to host people, feed them, and be extremely expressive in our interactions. I can't describe what it's like when the two of us hang out together. Our husbands just roll their eyes and leave us be ;)




Or as Jose would say, we are cut from the same tree.




Whatever the expression, I'm very grateful to have met Ana and that we unite like family :) She rocks her beauty both inside and out.




Don't you love collar bones? Just me? It creates these grooves and curves that, to me, fall in the same category as low backs -- these subtle elements that just roar femininity.



Roar. I like that word :)

Day 47: Smoking

Granted, this is not the sexiest display of "smoking" -- quite the opposite actually -- but I suppose because I'm not a smoker, I don't find it appealing. Though I imagine out there, somewhere, there are women who feel... "femme fatale"-ish when they smoke. At least I remember in middle school that was the sentiment about not being caught smoking. The cigarettes gave girls an edge, replicating the Hollywood glorification of being a rebel.

Then of course, there's the addiction aspect that completely tosses everything out the window. So there you go, something so far from seeming feminine -- yet, for others that is not the case. Or used to be.



I'm not crazy...




Yes, we have come a LONG way. Goodnight.

Day 2: Feminine Challenge

“Men have always been afraid that women could get along without them.”
- Margaret Mead, anthropologist




I find that women, more than men, absolutely love to read. And not only do we love to read, but we are engrossed in our books. Hence my picture (which took 6 tries on the self timer :) representing how your environment (mentally) begins to change when you are caught up in your book. I'm reading about Alice's character about to dive into the pool... and my feet can just about feel the chills of its cold temperature trickling from my toes to my shoulders :)
