I will admit that I had a mental cringe when I saw this week’s theme. I didn’t start out moderating this group which means that I didn’t come up with the weekly theme list, but when I saw this week, I wanted to change the theme. I could have–and no one would have known but me… but then my conscience kicked in and I recognized that I definitely needed to do it. If hearing about the theme caused me to want to avoid it, it’s a perfect week for me right? Theoretically?
I haven’t taken very many self portraits and I know that I didn’t even have to interpret it that way, but I procrastinated the week away and was left with the literal approach when today came and I hadn’t worked on anything yet. I knew I didn’t want to just take a pretty portrait and thought I should do one that is very real, raw, and vulnerable.
This is me.
I’m very curious to see what everyone else has come up with this week. Next in line is Heather Robinson from Durham, North Carolina. http://heatherrobinsonphotography.blogspot.com/2012/10/52-wednesdays-week-41-self_16.html
