Bikini Girl British Flag Shoot in London #FAIL

April 26, 2013 by @VanessaRivers

OK that title is pretty lame but maybe it got your attention??

I am sad to say that I gave it a good effort but had a failed attempt at adding a British flag photo to our Flag Series gallery. Luckily I’ll have a few more chances to get better pictures since I’m living part-time in London now, splitting my time between here and California. (Blond Cali surfer chick does London, I know weird!) Anyway the purpose of The Flag Series is to take amazing flag photos in all the places we travel to, and I have to admit these pictures I’m posting here are far from amazing (LOL!), but like I said we did try. My friend Anna and I set out to Westminster Bridge for the shoot with hopes of capturing stunning photos but the weather had different plans.

When we arrived it was sunny and nice…

But soon a storm began to role in bringing dark rain clouds, ruining our good lighting…

Trying to make wearing a British flag and holding a dorky British umbrella sexy but it's not really working! LOL

And the wind began billowing through in sharp gusts from every direction…

Wind broke the umbrella LOL and make it super hard to get any pix without my hair in my face!

Until the sky opened up and started pissing rain down on us so relentlessly that Anna & I were literally forced to run to Westminster Arms Pub, to take refuge…

But not before filming this incredibly dorky video which I must admit I am extremely embarrassed of! But it’s the only footage we were able to capture before the crazy, erratic storm, which I am learning was not actually that “erratic” and just typical London weather. LOL Oh well I guess I get to go back to this famous spot for a second round of embarrassing myself next time I’m here! Joy!
