keeping it real.
So I know I’ve gotten a bit video-happy at the moment, but I have good reason. I’m really busy – my camera is dying a slow, unable to focus properly style of death – and I actually find making these little videos quite fun.
The following vlog is not your ultra-polished, professional-type job – it’s me, slinging things into a food processor, rambling off on tangents, and Viper interrupting not one, but twice. Argh. It IS in fact, real life Lou – who’d have thought!?
I think it’s kinda good to keep things real. It’s easy to hide behind written words (spell checked, edited and the likes). Painfully styled photos, agonised over for hours, days, weeks (?) – fine, if that’s your job to do so – but I don’t get paid for this, and I would rather a realistic portrayal of the person I am, and the life I have than some fabricated idea of “perfection,” whatever that means.
I don’t know, the world we live in these days is obsessed with perfection – how you look, what you do for a living, where you live – blah blah blah – reality isn’t such a terrible place is it? Thoughts?
