Whats the Big Deal?

I have been LOVING all of the flowers popping up everywhere. Is that a surprise? I have been wanting to get down to the Seattle Japanese Garden for awhile now and figured this time of year would be a good time while all the trees are flowering. I really need to explore Seattle more. The garden was in an area of the city I have never been to and was on the border of a large arboretum. Which I now know I need to take a walk through.
I took these photos in a public place, with other people around. I almost left without getting the pictures taken because of this fact, but just couldn't do that. I drove all the way down there specifically for these pictures and decided to just suck it up and do it. Im extremely glad I did. While I was taking the ones on the bench, I know I had an audience from across the little pond that was there. Ill let them wonder what I was doing. Ill never see them again, right? So whats the big deal?

  4. I love your hair! I'm always so self conscious when people are watching my boyfriend take pictures of me. I'm always worried someone is going to say something about it.

  6. these are such pretty pictures! and i really like your hair:-) also, you're absolutely right, one shouldn't make taking pictures of themselves in front of others into a big deal (though it's easier said than done, haha)! xx

  7. You are beautiful, no wonder they stared! I always have such a difficult time when taking pictures in public places. But you are right. You will probably never see them again and the pictures were worth it because they are stunning per usual!

  10. These pictures are beautiful. Good for you for taking the pictures anyway! As someone else who is always taking photos in crowded places, it's a little awkward, but always worth it :)

    Have a great day!

    1. Sort of! Do a deep part and then a dutch braid, instead of french. So instead of bringing the hair over the middle section go under the middle section so it sticks up. Hope that wasn't confusing...

  15. I have to tell myself that everytime I am doing pictures out in public. They are all strangers, I'll never see them again haha! But it's always awkward to have an audience :P You have a lovely blog btw!

  18. You were so close to the job site I've been on! I can see the arboretum from the new portion of the 520 bridge. (Kaitlynn, by the way.) I just might need to prowl around in there sometime this summer.
