Outfit: Rain, Rain Go Away


These new wellies by Plueys are probably the most appropriate footwear in my closet right now.
While I try not to take pictures in the rain, I'm still often venturing out on rain-slicked pavement and into moody woods. Such is life in Ireland, I suppose. But sweetly printed rainboots are a definite silver-lining. Plueys boots are a good reminder that not everything practical has to be boring. The upside of our rainy days is how lush it makes all of the plants. With giant hogsweed like this I always feel like Thumbelina.

I love the trench coat, and your boots are adorable!

When you go out to take pictures, do you generally just wander around until you find a spot you like? Have you ever run into other people?

@Anna, I do sort of just wander and see what works, but I'm also wandering through areas I know to an extent. As in, I didn't *know* that I was going to shoot in this giant hogweed, but I knew it was out in the direction that I was going, along with a few other spots I thought could be nice on a grey day. Of course sometimes I have something in mind and when I get there it's gone (like flowers dying) or doesn't work at all in the conditions (too dark & rainy to be in the woods where there's very little light).
Yes, I do run into other people. I'm usually going to public parks, so if the weather's nice there are usually other people around. But I seek out quieter corners so if I see anyone it's usually 2-3 people while I take pictures, rather than a huge crowd. I do discuss most of this in my photography posts & FAQ, if you have more questions. :)

Hello! I love your boots and may have to find some. I just wanted to be sure you know that giant hogweed can actually cause severe burns on your skin...my public service announcement for the day:) http://www.canadiangardening.com/how-to/pests-and-diseases/beware-of-giant-hogweed/a/31773

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Julia yes I had heard/read that. I took pictures with hogweed before & mentioned the danger in that post. For me I'm always careful not to touch it. :)

Hi Rebecca,
I am in awe of the giant hogweed...it has such an impressive presence to your photographs!
The colours are deep and lush, I love it!

I always wear boots with long socks on show, it just makes them look better...not sure why, but it does!

@AnnaSophia, I use a Canon Mark--it's actually all my in FAQ if you have any photography questions

Bonita Vear said...

Oh wow! That giant hogsweed surely is something else. It looks very fairy-world to me, but in Australia we just don't have plants like that!!

Your outfit is super cute though, and I love how that little birdy ring keeps popping up in your photos. It's so pretty and it's nice to see more of it! :) ❤

The plants look amazing! I was scrolling through to find out where the exotic location was, only to find out it was Ireland! Gorgeous background for the lovely outfit! Xxxx
