That's right! It's faceless week! Woot! Prepare yourself to be creeped out...but for some reason I'm always inspired by faceless week. And I really needed the encouragement. And I just want you guys to know, I'm over that donkey...I have been for awhile. It's not so much about that...but more so about how I tend to compare myself to other contacts by quality and popularity. Then when I'm done I tend to think "I'm not good enough" "I don't have enough charisma" "I'm not talented enough" ect. And I know it's wrong to compare myself to other people...I'm not them, I'm me. There's nobody else like me, as mediocre as I may be in society and on flickr.


But I do appreciate everyone who follows me. It means the world to me...and while I tend to think of the future and concentrate on what could happen or what could be or how things could be better...know my heart ALWAYS appreciates where I'm at. You guys are amazing and I feel terrible because I've been a bad contact lately :( I have no excuse, just been lazy.


Anyway, I was going to do a more cliche shot today. Was going to do a hand heart on the belly but I was scared that'd get people thinking I'm pregnant. I'm not. Though earlier this week I was spotting and for a few days I was utterly convinced I was pregnant and it terrified me. I then turned a mommy forum where I got two women's opinions saying they thought it was just my birth control doing funny things to me. Turns out it was. Whew...I can't tell you how relieved Garry and I were when my monthly showed up...the damn thing. I never want it until it might not show.


But I figure, as far as faceless shots go this is pretty cliche. So...HCS!


PS. I'm so proud of the before and after of this picture I had to blog about it. Since blogger was being a butt I ended up getting a wordpress...please stop by and let me know you're watching...it'll make me wanna update more often :-P

    Glad you've stopped comparing yourself to others. I get it though. Flickr is hard sometimes. There will ALWAYS be someone knocking out better pictures. You can only be true to your own style and progress. That's what 365s are for - to force us to keep on trying and learning and growing.

  • Sharon's Shotz 5y

    these faceless wonders you create are always awesome, I think that is what first brought me to see you talent here. Funny, but we people are always our own worst critics often being too hard on ourselves. Your talent is amazing.

    i love you kat, great work
  • Jo 5y

    Another one of your freaky ones Kat! Awesome! I love the blank look on your face that you're holding, like its completely lifeless...brilliant!
  • Quave 5y

    Does anyone do this better than you?
  • Brooke Golightly 5y

    I think this is awesome and I can definitely associate to those weighing feelings. It's a constant battle so much so that I often think I should just quit photography. But, of course, that's not what I really want to do. Wonderful job, it's fabulous.

    This is freaking insane! You are a true artist. Your photostream needs WAY more publicity. You deserve it!
  • *iNiNa* Tracey Christina Photography 4y

    I love this - for lots of reasons but mainly for the reason you too mention on your blog - the before and after are amazing!
