Pa-pa-Paparazzi



          Photography class - this time, it was me being the model, and Daryl behind the lens. A rare super-exposed image was made, IT'S SPLENDID. Here were the test shots and one final shot used at the end. One inspiration was for weardrobe's current contest, as the last part was for its theme this week, 'Downtown Dame'.

Theme for the layout was a person getting ready from the house ready to tackle the streets.








•wearing: grey parachute-fabric dress with yellow splats, red-framed Ray Bans
ah, mind about the laundry... purposely so...? hahaha



 
 •wearing all white! motorcycle jacket, ouval tee, polo pants.
newly added to the family, long-awaited ivory cut-out black-tipped oxfords 
from Adity Boutique sent from Mom in Bandung. Fated or what, been eyeing it since last year these leather good, and apparently my heart was strong enought to wait "for the sale". After a markdwon of 40% to in the end 50% no one still takes so I push my mom and said "you promised me!" for CNY•


 

wearing: Cotton On Angel top, DIY ripped/painted/zipper-added/raped black high-waisted Hugo Boss jeans, Trois+Inch snake wedges.
accessories: RiverIsland pouch, white Zara bugseye•

       Now, this is where we get our dialogue going. I need ya'll your opinions for this, for those who has the eye. Not sharingan or byakugan though, just plain aesthetic eye and a right-left brain going high speed with extra generator plugged. For my Culture/Contextual Studies essay.


Professionals, scholars, intellectuals, and keen people: what does this image above evoke firstly in your eye?

If you have read "Ways of Seeing" by John Berger, or read numerous textbooks about sociology and communication of how an image is semiotic and polysemic, please do put an input and let me know to get myself thinking. (First think then see my answer below. That first glance, then start to ruminate and scrutinize each inch of the picture! Hahaha)


 As for me, I would say that the girl is the boss and they're her slaves. Basically.

          As for traditional Visualization and Presentation class, task is to find any street style image where the person has at least more than five colors in their outfit. That means, there's only one country that wins it all - not counting the ones that adapt it. Say goodbye to The Sartorialist as it was written on our brief, and where I recently learnt about his affair which was truly just a disgrace to the Adam race, especially how he's shameless on how he's an online superstar and everyone knows. Public secret.

Say hello, nonetheless, to Mr. Newton, a NY resider as well, and of course, whereelse would I abide street style? Fashion Snap it is! The chosen five goes to...


 
 •Tavi, the Japanese geek like moi, by Mr. Newton•

  
 •Fashion Snap 1•

 
•Fashion Snap 2. The guys are not losing to the onnas!

•Fashion Snap 3. Rad red shoes he's got there. Hey Bryan I am looking at your shoes and high socks here...•


        The last is founded back at my old Japan street style research in prior for my trip prep, last shot, where I remember "duckgirl" because of her shoes and chosen colors.

       See it or not, how I place those pictures are color related un-accidentally. Yellow background, to a neutral and to the grey pavements with a nice flow.
