What wasn't planned, though, was trying to find a place to take her picture. The chocolate store is in a strip mall, so finding a small piece of wall without glass next to it or parking lot behind was a bit of an adventure. This photo was shot on about 2 feet of wood perpendicular to a glass window, with the parking lot showing on the other side.
I thank my lucky stars every day for the invention of Photoshop! If I knew who invented it, I'd send them chocolate from O'Shea's!
But without further ado, I bring you Alexis.
For fun, I edited it this way, too.
Which one do you like best? I think I'm partial to the full colour. I love the gorgeous tone of the wood against the turquoise of her necklace and cami.
