The truth is I forgot my sunglasses on, I wasn't planning on including them in the shoot. But then I got to thinking about something a friend of mine once told me. She said I should not look at the camera every time I take a picture because each and every person looking at it will take a piece of my soul away. I didn't give it much thought back then, but it somehow makes sense. I am exposing myself to my readers on a daily basis and that can make you vulnerable. Hiding behind shades from time to time can be beneficial.
