Queen caught barefoot by paparazzi

Oh, the struggles of celebrity. There I was getting a preview of the 23rd Annual Pasadena ASID Home and Kitchen Tour when there they were– the paparazzi. Hey, I’m trying to work here, but no avail, photographer Terry Miller had spotted the 31st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade Queen – me – and couldn’t resist.


Terry, who is also known as Sir Terence Of Camera Obscura, Royal Photographer, was kind enough to share a couple of his shots. So here you go~
