A Cathedral and a Rooftop






The rain nearly ruined this rooftop shoot. Gwynne and I took advantage of the surprising sunshine and warm weather that followed the dreary rain. This 55 degree January day had me confused about winter. It seems she's clarified any confusion over the weekend though,  it's freezing! Winter has me hibernating and slightly depressed. Spring must come soon for my sanity. It's killing my social life. I rarely leave my house besides work.  
So, the rooftop and the National Cathedral. Well, about a month ago I realized I have unauthorized access to the roof. How fortunate that one of the keys opens the door. With the cathedral directly across the street, this location seemed rather perfect for a photo shoot. Gwynne, a fellow blogger and jewelry maker, joined me and, boy, was it a blast. She also brought me a funky, recycled earring she made! Of course, I wore it.  We gave our best posh looks, but couldn't help laughing at our, well, my, failed attempts. And the shadows, well, that was plain  fun.
