In the weeks before we shot this next set of photos for our loosely The Addams Family themed photo, I scouted a barren plot between two apartment buildings in my neighborhood. I picked it for the boarded up windows and the rusty fire escape, but when we got to shooting there were other grungy elements that we did not plan for. This time instead of aggressive wild turkeys, there was just a lot of dog poop. What can we say? DIY is very rarely glamorous.

You might not see it, but there is doggie doo everywhere in the grass around us. It seems that the lazier pet owners in the neighborhood use this empty plot of land to hide their shame. So each time we set up our tripod in the grass, I lost a little time with the self-timer while trying to gracefully keep my skirt clean.
