my sister kingsley

my sister kingsley is pretty awesome. just sayin. she laughs at all my jokes & lets me believe i'm stylish, even though hipster fashion that ventures past wearing leggings escapes me. she even puts up with me having a camera in her face for the better part of our girls day out on saturday. we coffee-d, we window shopped, we perused galleries & discussed the merits of purchasing a gorgeous blue & green cushion from spacecraft against whether or not it would clash with a certain fluoro yellow 'jake' chair i've got my eye on from koskela. finally, we stopped in a brand new, new-york-style diner with a madmen vibe, that's just opened on gertrude street, where bam! i had my camera in her face every time kingsley took a sip of her asahi beer, (yeah she's a hipster. they're marc jacobs sunglasses she's wearing y'all). too dark. too bright. gotta adjust the shutter speed. no, still not right. time to up the iso. change white balance from cloudy back to auto for indoors. anyway i'm slowly getting my head around taking manual photos. these ones are totally untouched. i love the first one, but it's a little dark. the bottom left is my favourite, but i also love the pop of blue against the bright orange diner sign in the background of the others. what y'all think?

p.s. i've just decided to start posting bigger photos, but i'm wondering if they're a little too big. does it look & load OK on your screen?

  5. Bigger photos look great and load without any problems here too KK! Also, was the handsome-from-the-back man in the blue jacket any good from the front? Looks like a potential cool-cat match for your hipster sis to me!
