This picture makes me laugh because it’s my attempt at a “flat lay” photograph. I’m a blogger, yes. I do it almost every day. But I’m clearly not a fashion blogger, food blogger, or any kind of style blogger, who requires fabulously styled, perfectly captured, photo-shopped and filtered images. Most days, I use real images from my real life, taken straight from my phone. They’re usually pretty imperfect. They’re not images meant to impress.
They’re meant to tell a story.
That’s why this one makes me laugh so much. Because I always know I’ll be writing a blog soon, when there’s a good story line building, I try to grab some sort of photograph of whatever is happening. This day, I looked down at what I found myself doing, laughed out loud, and took this “flat lay” image, thinking surely this experience had a good story in it.
We’re about to find out.
