Selfie Sunday is a new serie on the blog. Not perse every sunday, and not perse a ‘real’ selfie (taken by myself). Weird definition of series and selfies you have, Curly! Yeah, I know;-). Let’s just say that you will find a picture of me here regularly on sundays. A picture with a story.
Today we take of with Selfie Sunday #1:
So what’s the story behind this picture?
Let me first introduce the characters in this little story.
When we arrived in Singapore, I explored online the tango scene in Singapore, as I do everywhere I go. I found a FaceBook group and on that list was a name that sounded Dutch. That made me curious, so I sent this person a message, asking: “Are you by any chance Dutch? Do you live in Singapore? And do you dance tango?” The answers I got back from Sylvia, as was her name, were : “Yes, yes, not any more.” To make a long story short, we met for coffee and are friends ever since. How cool is that?
While exploring pictures on Flickr, I stumbled upon the pictures of a German woman, named Sabine. She lives in Singapore and is a fantastic photographer. We got in contact via Flickr, met for a coffee and we are friends since then as well. Don’t you just love how online connections can turn into IRL (In Real Life) friendships?!
At a certain point Sylvia started the successful fashion blog 40plusstyle. She regularly does fashion shoots for that, usually #OOTD (Outfit of the Day) shoots . Sabine is always looking for photo opportunities and cool backdrops. And I love photography, my friends and Haw Par Villa.
So one day we went to that wonderful, weird sculpture garden, armed with cameras, clothes and props. We dressed each other up, threw ideas at each other about poses and good spots and had a lot of fun.
This picture is taken by Sylvia. I am wearing my own purple dress, a red vest from her and her red hat. The earrings and ring are my own, so are my light-blue nails;-). The purple veiled cloth was brought by Sabine.
Aren’t the crazy fake green/turquoise ‘rocks’ the perfect backdrop?
Our Fashion Shoot at Haw Par Villa resulted in many cool shots by and from all three of us.
So far for Selfie Sunday today, peeps. Have a great day!
