    ArtScience Museum: Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests

    Oh I’ve really gone and neglected this space. I originally intended to update this post on my trip, but realised that I’d forgotten to bring my reference photos, and then other things (such as sleep) soon took precedence over the blog. Oh well, I’m here and trying to pull my socks up with all the backlogged photos I’ve accumulated for the past year and change!

I wanted to write a bit about the thoughtless grind of taking outfit photos for my blog simply for the sake of creating content. Interestingly, the dress featured in these three outfits is what Ottie calls my “nun outfit” – it’s long, black, and I should stop right there because I just found my mind in the gutter. Anyway, I’ve been thinking for a while now about steering this space into something with more intent. Simple outfit photos against a backdrop usually doesn’t compel me to write anything substantial anyway, so what’s the…
