The many faces of bloggers…

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

When asked to gaze longingly at something, this ^ is what you'll get from me.  A smirk.  A silly, self-conscious smirk.  

While editing these snaps (taken up at Buda Castle on the Buda side of Budapest.  Can  you tell that I like to say "Buda" a lot?), it dawned on me, though not for the first time, that there bloggers/models have a great many faces.  

There are those super high fashion, gazillion-million-Instagram-follower-garnering bloggers who are able to successfully achieve the sexy, sultry, Victoria's Secret Angel look.  There are those who try damned hard and do a pretty good job of gathering a solid following.  And then there are the bloggers like me: we cannot pull off a sexy face at gunpoint.  We try, but it erupts into explosive laughter (see below).  The only time we are actually able to achieve that longing look is when we aren't actually looking directly at a camera, but showing off how fancy the back of our dress is (again, see below).  Smiles are all you get from us, and while Instagram users seem not to like that very much, it is the way it is.  

So there.
