For those who may not have noticed, Sometimes Interesting is talking about the long tragic history of the Sheraton Hotel in Gary. I strongly recommend it, it is the most complete history of this building ever compiled on the internet.
A little background on today’s photo, it is actually from a couple of years ago. Yes, yes, I’m cheating a little. I had this brilliant idea to talk a couple of friends into doing a photo shoot with us and we spent the better part of a Sunday having a hilarious time wandering the top 3 sites for urbex with a pair of drag queens. I have awesome friends. I figure since TR is out of the country I’d post all the photos I meant to post but never got around to in the meantime.
As some may have noticed, the Oscars were last Sunday. I have finally started sorting through my photos from the Oscar party I went to. Normally Oscar parties aren’t my thing, but Robyn and Misty throw the best Oscar Drag party you could imagine.
This year Robyn went as Jessica Rabbit.
I also played around a little bit with deliberate camera motion when the big lights weren’t on, this is the best of the lot but overall it isn’t a technique I like very much.
Getting ready for stage 2 of the shoot, Misty changes outfits and fixes up a little and bemoans the lack of a dressing room.
Danger! Danger Will Robinson!
I’ve finally gotten around to going through my Drag Queens in Gary shoot for the second review. I took so many photos in one day, reviewed them once, dumped the really bad ones and posted the ones I liked on first viewing. After that I’ve been avoiding them like the plague since I pretty much hated everything I took. I could have done better, much better. Tons better.
My only excuse was I had just gotten my DSLR and had no idea how to use it, so while my models and location were just FABULOUS DARLING, my skills were not. Still, on second review (at long last) I find that I don’t hate everything as much as I thought I did.
So brace yourselves for Round Two of the Misadventures of Misty and Ivana!
