Everything looks better in black and white. Everything? Well I should say, most things. Some things must be seen in color. Like a rainbow, or a field of blooming flowers. When I was little the best part about the wizard of oz was when it turned to color but in most instances I prefer black and white and especially in portraits.
Today my back aches cause of the stress I give it. I get all rattled sometimes at my job. My main position is MONEY. I’m just going to say it, "makes the world go round." I have to generate the money…keep it coming. And you know there are a lot of people who don't like to pay their bills, even when the work has been complete. It can be stressful. I let it get to me, so my neck hurts my back aches and yep…you guessed it, I’m scratching my legs like a mad woman cause somehow I think this gives me some sort of relief. Next….how to break a bad habit? Anyone know?
Back to today. So today I came home and decided to take a picture of this person who feels stressed, who has redness around her nose because she has a dry patch/rash that will not go away, the girl who went to bed with wet hair and just got up and put a clip in it without even combing it. The girl who doesn’t feel very pretty today. But I happen to know a few tricks that even when one is feeling all these things, one might still be able to “trick” others into thinking she is radiant, confident and ready for the world. It’s called....... find the light. My bedroom window. Second use the super cool app called TinType, next just smile a little bit…but mean it. Think of something nice. And there you have it. A Self Portrait that isn’t all that bad. I’m not saying I’m all that but I’m saying…you simply do not know the history of my day by looking at a mere photograph. Just remember that. Looks are deceiving. They really are.
This is day four of my five day challenge. Just an image with words.
I have been invited by basildonkitchens aka Connie my cosmic twin to the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. I discovered Connie’s beautiful blog when I was on wordpress and noticed right off the bat we had some things in common. I admire her talent for making gorgeous quilts, her love of the sea and of course Mr. Sock Monkey, he gets me every time. When I want to get away and look at beautiful things, I come visit Connie. She keeps herself busy with a photo a day challenge she faithfully participates in with fat mum slim.
Today I would like to challenge my friend Kate. She is busy, this I know because she is a kick butt mom to Mr. T and together these two have super powers, I've seen it. The duo can do some stuff. Mostly they are busy making others feel real important, they are good at that, they beam with light. Kate do you have the time to take on the challenge?
