are you looking at me?

Behave yourself... because sometimes the trees really do have eyes... hehe. ; )

I realize that probably none of you believe that I'm actually in England at all, since I'm still uploading pictures of Mexico, but I'm actually really glad I had so many stockpiled. In addition to my continued homelessness (ending tonight), my camera is out of action due to my accidentally deleting the memory card last week. The photos are recoverable, but... oh, it's a long story. Anyway, I won't be showing you pictures of sunny October Greenwich until some time in November, and in the meantime I need to go buy a new memory card.

It's a shame that I didn't have a camera this weekend actually, because the weather here is absolutely beautiful. Seriously, it's been like Guadalajara, but without the humidity and storms!

Anyway, these pictures are actually from Guadalajara, from my endlessly photogenic former neighbourhood (Avenida Libertad, I miss you)!

You're totally gorgeous in those pants.

Mexico has some kind of magic I really like.

What a brilliant tree eyeing you up there! The bow on your belt is such a sweet detail :) Love it.

Congrats on the end of homelessness!

Imogen said...

Wow that tree is incredible, I have never seen anything like it before. I aodre your red jeans and the bow is a lovely detail.

A said...

Very nice pictures. What kind of camera do you have?

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

@ A: These were taken with my boyfriend's camera which is a Panasonic of some sort with a Leica lens (there's basically an identical Leica one for a few hundred dollars more. ; ) I can discover the model number if you like. It's not a DSLR, just a regular point and shoot.

We're big believers in not needing an expensive camera to take nice pictures. A lot of pictures on my blog are taken with my $89 Sony, though I'd be lying if I didn't say my boyfriend's is better. Taking photos in good light and a bit of photoshop tinkering can solve lots of problems however!

Diana said...

this is so cute i love the idea:) and the red pants are fantastic

daisychain said...

Oh wow, those trees..incredible

ching said...

haha the trees now freak me out. :D

Kerri @ OldLadyChic said...

Red pants=awesome! I'm curious since you lived in Mexico for so long are you fluent in Spanish?

SG said...

Nice post. I wonder if Donna Mills got her inspiration from these trees for her video "The Eyes Have It".

Arielle said...

what an amazing tree!

Daniella said...

Alice said...

Sorry I have not been very regular on your blog.
I like your outfit. Specially the belt with the bow. You did not mention where you got that from.
Oh I dig out from my older pics so many times. It helps.

Ashley said...

It' all about the bow :)

Those eyes remind me of evil eyes are are prevalent in the middle east, like TURKEY!! :D

Michal said...

That tree is awesome, your red pants are awesome. The end.

Love the eye pictures! You sound like me kinda, where in the world... now? :) But I'm going back "home" soon, whatever that means. What an amazing crazy life, no?

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Tree art? Great concept! The vibrancy of the colors used is so... eye-catching ;) I like coming across quirky, out-of-the-ordinary things like this.

Love your red jeans, Emily. What a fun piece to have in your wardrobe. I've had a thing for colored pants and jeans this year, too. I bought a pair of purple jeans a few months back that I've been wearing to death (haven't blogged 'em yet, though).

I'm happy to hear you're no longer homeless!

Terri said...

I'm wondering if there is some cultural meaning to the eyes...

Really liking those red britches. I've been shopping a pair, in the interest of brightness, but haven't come across just the pair I want, yet.

Glad to hear you've found a place.

Jenny said...

I WANT those red pants!

Kayraheart.fashion said...

Those red pants are hot..And that tree so so adorable....love ur blog..
xx

A said...

Emily,

I have DSLR but pictures are not as good as these. I always thought a good picture is 90% composition and 10% camera. I bought DSLR just for night photography.

Krystal said...

tree drawings! I love it!!!!Village

Amber Rose said...

You are so gorgeous dollface! :)

I'm too wondering about how the eyes got there! :)

Glad the homelessness is ending, but so sorry to hear about the memory card. Yikes.

Rio said...

I have a strange fascination with eyes, especially drawing them, so this is right up my alley! ;) Sooo cool! Bummer about your memory card, but I do enjoy seeing the rest of your Guadalaraja photos! Your red pants are red hot (ooh word play!), and I love your bow belt too! :) Glad you'll have a home by tonight :).

Greer said...

oh my dear, i love those sunglasses of yours!!xx

Chaucee said...

Wow you are so luck to be traveling so much! PS the bow on your pants is adorable.

Madeline said...

Wow, these are great, and vaguely looking over the rest of your blog, its great too! all very interesting to somebody who's not really had the opportunity to travel as of yet! I'm now following!

Thrive on Novelty said...

Gorgeous outfit! I want your jeans! xx

Rebecca said...

I think more trees should have eyes! It's fun seeing all your photos from warmer climates and glad you're enjoying London.

The Breakfast Lover said...

Oh! i have the same trousers but the black ones, zara is everywhere! i love it!

Raquel said...

you look rockabilly perfection Emily!

it's funny that type of art work on trees, I've always related Mexico with colour and wood handicraft (don't know why though!) and that is the perfect match relating to mu thoughts haha!

glad you found yourself and apartment! hope it's not too tough when it gets to my time ;)

Elo said...

Really nice pics! ; )
Thank you for the comment!

franki said...

Haha I've heard the saying "walls have ears" but "trees have eyes"?! Crazy!
Love your red jeans - very cute! x

Emma said...

Tree art - I love it! Hope you're enjoying England x

Abi said...

Oh wow! These trees really do have eyes! I wonder who thought to put them on there.

I love your red trousers and bow detail on your belt. Sorry to hear about your camera. Can't wait till you get it up and running. I would love to see your photos in and around Greenwich village!

Have a great week!

SMASH said...

you KNOW how I feel about those zara pants and you are rocking them like no other! Also, no more homelessness?! Ahh, congrats! Let me know when you want me to send your blouse out ;)

Nice, if I was a tree I'd also look at you ;)

MissNeira said...

Love the red jeans! you just reminded me I have a pair!

raji said...

@ EMILY NICE PICTURES .WERE DID U FIND THIS TREE?The place seems interesting "guadalajara"i saw some pictures from your previous post too.it resembles some indian cities.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

@raji. That's very interesting; a few people have told me that some of the architecture reminds them of India too. I'm not sure why that would be. But I think maybe Mexico and India share a culture of colour. And chaos!
