Her Happiest Place to Be by TeaPhotography Her Happiest Place to Be by TeaPhotography
Her Happiest Place to Be
To find a happy Tea
Look for her happiest place to be
And you'll always find her by the sea...

Location: Harris Beach, Southern Coast of Oregon, USA.

Planned for a shoot this day. It had been long since I had any new photos. There are 3 others from this shoot that I kind of like, that I may upload as a series. They are each different from each other. :aww:
I'd like to use one as a new ID. We'll see. :)


I am sometimes a seeming contradiction of character in certain ways. In the photo, I am holding a my childhood parasol, which I never used as a child.
One because it was so girlie, and I have never been very girlie, at all.
But two, because I have never used ANY umbrella in the rain. And I still don't. I don't mind getting wet from the rain-water. :lol:
But as an adult I have grown very fond of the parasol, for some strange nostalgic and artist reasons, and I DO use it for practical purposes in the SUN only, when on the beach. ;)

I am actually rarely seen in skirts, and never in dresses! But I do try to wear skirts at least once in a while as I've grown older, just to mixed it up a little, and to try to make it fun to do so.
And I like to at the ocean because I feel my soul flowing at the ocean anyway, and wearing a flowing skirt is just a way to match my outside to the way I am feeling inside. :)

I prefer colder beaches, always have.
And so it is one reason why I am always covered at the beach.
It is a very cool day in August in this photo. :nod:
[The Summers are NOT hot here, but for a couple days tops- thankfully!]
I LIKE the sun okay, but the sun doesn't like my milk-white skin which burns and reacts poorly to sunlight. :hmm:
It is a down-side to being a redhead.
So I have to protect myself very carefully from the sun. :sun:

So, Just a bit about me, Tea. :aww:


I used to really LOVE this song- still do. :heart:
I saw TRAIN perform this song at a Summer Fest concert at California State University Stanislaus in Turlock, just before they got FAMOUS.
[Don't remember the year, but it was LONG ago. ;) ]
They were on local and a few regional radio stations, and playing in bars and a couple venues. But just after this Summer Fest, they really made it BIG.

Favourite lines in bold:

Meet Virginia

by Train

She doesn't own a dress
Her hair is always a mess,

... wears high heels when
she exercises
Ain't it beautuiful
Meet Virginia


She only drinks coffee at midnight
When the moment is not right
Her timing is quite, unusual

You see her confidence is tragic, but her
Intuition magic And the shape of her body?

Yay! A good LIVE version! :boogie: :heart:


[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.
