Okay, so this admittedly is not the best background I’ve ever used on this website.
A little context – I’m standing on one of the staircases in North Dining Hall (not to be confused with South Dining Hall, which I have frequently featured as a backdrop here). It was actually the suggestion of the friend who was doing my pictures that day, and while I was initially hesitant given the super public nature of the location, I figured I would give it a shot.
It’s better than just another door, right?
I think it just really comes down to the lighting here – since I’m indoors rather than out, everything just sorta looks washed out and dull i. That’s sort of the nature of the beast though, but combining the dull light with the already pretty dull background, I feel, just makes for maybe not the most interesting photos I’ve ever done.
I do rather like this outfit though, with its utilitarian, post-apocalyptic look. You might have noticed that that’s a look I’ve gone for several times before on this blog (notable examples can be seen here and here). That would be, of course, because I rather like it – it’s not really something I can go for everyday, and not something that I can do all-out out of fear of coming off too costume-y, but it’s fun to incorporate influences from media like The Hunger Games or Mad Max into my daily wear.
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame! Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
