Soo it's Christmas time, a.k.a. the time of secrets. Secrets about the presents that are waiting inside the giftwrap, about the elves behind the trees looking for good kids and grandmom's secret planning of the Christmas dessert.
I personally always keep my presents as surprises until the very end (or, atleast try!) and I love the surprises myself as well, but there's this one secret that I don't think you would mind overhearing and that I would love to share with you guys. Self timer, that is.
I kept my blog as a secret from my friends for really long and even though that nowadays I share it with them, I still fel very shy about taking photos. I often ask my mom or my sister to help if I need outfit pics (which is part of the reason why I post them so seldom) and even then I feel kind of shy. Seriously, I don't know what is wrong with me! Or I do know, but I don't know how to fix it. Slowly but surely, I guess! And tips are appreciated ;)
But that brings me to the point. Since I prefer to not show my oh so professional poses in practise, empty street/house and a camera with self-timer is the perfect solution for me. Yes I know that this is totally what a blogger is not supposed to do and that pics taken by an actual person are a lot better and a lot more interesting, and if happen to succeed with self timer I might not go shouting about it, but why bother. Most of my photos still are by humans - or a sloth when I find one who could and would liketo take photos- , but sometimes I have to yell my battle shout, Go self timer!
The topic by the way also refers to the Alone at Home - movie, which is an absolute Christmas must-see! This year no less. But until waiting for it to show on TV I'm enjoying my Transformers advent calender and the christmas lights and smells and everything, I hope you are too! Have a wonderful weekend!
Ja hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää jo etukäteen!
