Come On In

Let me preface today's piece by saying, this is not an outfit post! My friend, Nilou Lueck, had to snap a few portrait shots as part of a photography class homework assignment. I volunteered my face and my place of residence with the ambition of  becoming less camera shy.

Thus, the shoot begins and Nilou beautifully captures a lazy Thursday evening in the life of Valerie Friedrich. I think the aspiring artist has a bright future ahead of her. What do you think?

One additional note: I do not smoke any more, but love the visual presentation of smoking in photos; the act gives the hands and mouth some sort of purpose. That's why I have my furry children in most of the shots that you're about to see.
