Sincerely Yours

When you wander into isolate areas by yourself with a camera and tripod in hand you're bound to have a few scary stories from your adventures. Sometimes the situation is actually a bit precarious, while other times you're mostly just jittery because you think you are fairly isolated and then a random runner trots out of the woods and you jump out of your skin in surprise. Rarely do I consider myself the potentially frightening figure, but the other day while taking pictures near my house I accidentally startled a couple of girls sledding in the snow. They were coming around the corner and while I could hear their approach because they were chatting to each other and slushing through the snow, I was unintentionally stealthy as I quietly set up my camera and tested my remote. Making them jump when they saw me was bad enough, but when I realized my remote needed new batteries and I headed to the store to pick some up, the girls were there too. They were lingering near the shelves were the batteries were, so I hung back a bit to stay out of their way and overheard them saying to each other that I looked like I was "stalking" them. I took my time in the store after they left, trying to not run into them again but as soon as I walked out they were on the street ahead of me walking in the same direction as me. I felt if they looked over their shoulders and spotted me a third time all of their concerns that I was stalking them would be confirmed. So like a rather creepy stalker I tried to hide at bit on my walk home so they wouldn't see me, which in hindsight is far weirder than just walking home at a normal pace...Still I got the batteries I needed, headed back out into the snow and managed to take my pictures without scarring anyone else! sincerelyurs-2 sincerelyurs-33

  1. Haha, you certainly don't look the part of a stalker! XD I do get some weird looks when I bring my camera out and take pictures in public, but I've never had anything to that extreme. XD
    Adorable outfit! The hat goes well with it. :)

  2. Haha, if I were a guy I'd be please you were stalking me! I get self-conscious when I whip my camera out too, sometimes!

  4. I've had this happen too. Once I spoke up and said, "No, I'm not stalking you, we're just going the same direction." We ended up having a really good laugh. It's funny, I don't know why you'd be stalking them, maybe it was the camera that made them think that?"

  9. Haha! At least you have some funny stories to tell! So far the only things I've ever encountered are people who want to chat a lot while I'm still trying to get shots going. And I don't mind chatting, but if it's already cold outside and I've taken off a coat to get my photos, I start to shiver and it just ruins the whole vibe. Ah, well. I'm glad you were able to get the photos you needed! This outfit is so cute!
