underneath my skin



there's an endless story.... (new blog for my photographs)

this was unintentional. never knew how annoyingly hard it would be to do a self-portrait. i was struggling. my camera needs something to focus on for the self-timer to work (not the case w/other cameras) so it proved to be difficult. i should have took my friend on her offer. nonetheless, this is my fav shot of me ;)

Oh no! The giant snatched up the subject of the photo! Look, she's taking it away!

Haha, that's what it looks like. I like the size difference. Nice hair.

when i read self-portrait, self-timer, i thought that you finally implimented your idea of "self-portraits" ;)

Let's call this one "Lovely hair, empty chair".

mermaid said...

Her hair falls from the sky in leaves of rain. Are we fortunate enough to sneak a glimpse of her face?

Hair or palm-tree-fronds? Isolation on the beach? Now this is giving portraits a very original twist ;)

I think it is a portrait of you, maybe because it was unintentional... Sometimes a part of us, or an object that we use can say morethan we think about ourselves...
