As I mentioned earlier, I like to obsess over little unimportant things… like bags and shoes. I rarely buy them so when I do I have trouble justifying the purchase and really over think it. I’d been searching for a pair of size 10 Vivid Blue Low Rise Converse sneakers for aaaaaaaaages. Steve never wanted to hear the word Converse ever again but last week as the family was pouring over piles of Christmas junk mail I found them… and they were buy one pair get one free!!
Converse had discontinued the colour I wanted so I was absolutely thrilled to find them. I even rang the store to double check before I drove halfway across Sydney to go and get them. Sure enough, they had one pair left and they were MINE. I really wanted two in case something happened to the first pair (god forbid) but I had to suck it up, appreciate that I’d found one at least and for the free second pair I bought the other colour I liked, Sangria.
I needed “shoot shoes”, shoes to wear whilst photographing families and weddings. At weddings I usually wear black or muted tones so I don’t stand out, I find necklaces annoying with my camera strap so making a statement with my feet sounded like a good plan. Cons are great as they’re enclosed, have a good grip on slippery surfaces and just plain awesome. The fact that I managed to find a pair that matches my business/blog marketing colours exactly is surreal.
What do you obsess over?
