  1. What to Wear: Interviewing a Pig Racer

    Thursday, July 21, 2011

    That's no euphemism. Today one of my assignments was to interview and photograph a man who puts on a travelling zoo called the Down Home Hillbilly Show. He's in town for the Big Valley Jamboree, which kicks off next Thursday. We're doing a special pullout on BVJ, so I was glad to go down to the grounds and check it out.

    Unfortunately, the pigs were saving up for the big race so we didn't get any action shots. But we had this group shot (he calls himself Big Boss Hog, seen here with the Daisy Duke girls):

    And then, because there is nothing cuter than little kids and little animals, I got this shot:

    I wore this, since I thought it would fit the bill.



    And that - among other slightly less interesting things - was my day! Just goes to show that there's no assignment too grungy for a nice skirt.

      I had to laugh when I saw this, it's the inevitable question: Can I get away with my heels and skirt for ?

      I managed to go beekeeping in a dress and heels so I commend you on your pig racing ensemble!

      By the way, that bit with the random question mark was supposed to say 'insert story here' but I must have put some HTML by accident as that bit disappeared! I'm sure you knew what I meant anyway :-)

    3. looks like a hoot and holler. You look cute too.;)
