Unravelling week 2: reflections


This was a hard week for me because I hate hate hate being photographed. There are hardly any photos of me after the age of 14 or so, when I finally got sick of my dad constantly brandishing a camera and started to hide from it. I didn't take many photos this week, and I cheated a bit by not even being in all the photos I did take. (The above is one of the Unravelling writing exercises, reflected in my makeup mirror.)

I have had a kind of nothing weekend. No drawing at all. No painting. And I can't scan anything right now anyway as I rearranged my desk and now my printer lead doesn't reach my computer (did I mention I bought a new iMac? I love it) so I ordered a new one and will have to wait till it arrives. But I'm thinking I might do a doggy version of the "lots of cats" drawing tonight.

YAY iMac!! I love mine too! She's 16 months old.
Your old cameras are great. Cool sketches. I think it's good to use film as well as digital. I find I get 'lazy' with digital as you can take so many pics. I take more care with film.

this is a beautiful photo and it's still a reflection of a part of you:-)

i loved this photograph from the time i first saw it. it says a lot about you imho. one of the reasons i love to take pictures is for what i see "out there" - and i think that's such an intangible thing to know about one's self, something not so readily gleaned. so i guess what i'm saying is we do see you even if it's not so literal. same goes for your other photos. and you've shared a lot of words and memories too, more so than others. not that it's a contest, just so you know you're doing your fair of unravelling :)
