The assignment for this week was to take some portraits of others sans faces, and some of oneself in the mirror and in front of the camera.
Not only is this a challenge on so many levels, my photog helper (the one with the opposable thumbs) was out of town. What's a girl to do? I hit the archives.
First up the mirror shots...these were taken while in Tacoma. I loved the background and the window light was awesome...it just poured into the room.
Uh-oh...who's that interloper?? :)
I like hand shots as I think they tell so much about a person without including their face.
Although his face is in this one...it is nicely blurred and I think his expression adds to the story.
And yes...his creation tasted as good as his expression anticipated!
Speaking of blurring...some of my favorite shots of people are to just blur them completely. So not really "sans faces"...you really don't see the detail, but if you know them, you know who they are.
I leave you with this shot as a place holder for a future shot of the real me. It pretty much sums me up...but I'd like to think of myself as a little more 3-D than this...and of course the color in my hair is a little wan here! LOL!!
These assignments have been a blast! And I have so enjoyed meeting everyone and seeing how we all approached the same assignment. More importantly, I am checking in on everyone's blogs during the week to see what interesting things they are up to and what's going on in their lives. New friends...always a good thing!
It sounds like Camilla and Carolyn might do a little more online hostessing next spring. Count me in!! Thank you C and C for taking this on!
