Lipstains at Lexington Market


Often times, ideas that are in my head do not manifest into a great reality. Even with the grittiness of Lexington Market in Baltimore, I was adamant about doing a shoot there. There is something about showcasing ALL parts of Baltimore that is appealing to me and not just showing the "clean" and "tourist friendly" places. I believe when you are in a city you should experience every part of the city minus anything dangerous. I got alot of push from alot of people about shooting there. "its dirty" "the people are gross" yadda yadda.. yes, all those are true but really who cares? Isn't a personal style blog supposed to be personal and not all glitz and glamour but sometimes a little grit and glamour?  I grew up in a hoyty toyty, suburban Wisteria Lane where we still borrowed sugar from our neighbors and could forget to put our garage door down while gone on a 1 week vacation and find our home and belongings completely intact (true story). I was sheltered. Immensely. It was not until I left the nest and started wandering off on my own did I see the "real world" and even then it was still a very subdued glimpse of it. I am not the absolute most comfortable in more "urban" areas (bc Im wide eyed and naive and just look like I am out of place) but I do not shy from them either and this post was important to me because I wanted to do something different. I wanted to put myself in a different situation. I wanted to show the juxtaposition of my seemingly sweet outfit with the toughness of the locals but alas we just could not get a good enough shot inside or outside of Lexington Market. My posts from here on out are not meant to be perfect but I want them to be real. This is a fashion blog/personal style blog but I am a real person and not a model (no matter how many offers I get). But, unfortunately this post is NOTHING like I wanted or envisioned in my head but that is what is great about ideas. Some can come to fruition and be successes and others just stay something great in your head but in the end what is important is always TRYING it out. If at first you don't succeed, try and try again! 
We shall meet again Dear Lexington Market!

I sure am reading, I read this site every day and all the comments. Thank you so much for the kind compliment! Jenni will contest that one of my flaws is accepting compliments and recognition for my work, so I am working on it lol. Thank you again, it is nice to hear when someone takes to liking my photography.

Jenni could not have said it better. We had a sold plan, ideas for shots, talked about it on the way there, then once there it seemed that no matter what we tired nothing was working right. This is not excuse making lol this is just knowledge passing, as we learned no matter how much you plan you can never plan for everything. Lexington Market is a great staple of Baltimore culture, and to quote Jenni "We shall meet again Dear Lexington Market". The day of this shoot Lexington Market was packed, and I mean PACKED. I have been to the market on many occasions and know there is always a good volume of people, but this day was above the norm. Lastly I am not sure if it was Jenni or the combination of her and seeing me with cameras strapped all over me, but everyone wanted to talk to us to include a guy who decided to talk into my lens as I was snapping a picture thus causing dramatic hazing on images which could not be identified until the post processing! In all was the shot a failure? Of course not, Jenni with her typical positive mentality moved on and found the amazing wall painting that worked out well....... We will concur Lexington Market hahaha!
