Wind Enchantment (and other excuses for my Narcissism)

The location for these photos is one of those places that you drive by once a week and think "Wow, I need to take outfit photos there" (or is that just something I do). The place ended up being cooler than I thought with a wealth of photo ops. Furthermore, the weather decided to emulate a tornado and there was this eerie howl floating in the air. It's never windy like that in Colorado, or at least not along the front range, so I'm always enchanted by the meteorological anamoly. I went completely picture crazy. Just when I thought I was finished, I turned to see myself in the mirror. Not unlike the story of Narcissus, I was transfixed by the fuzzy reflection and I couldn't help myself. Sorry!
Now, I'm popping Cherry Sours and finishing up some grading. Blech, I hate grading! It's loathsome.
