52 week self-portrait (8/52)

So, the idea here is to actually make myself DO the idea…follow through. As ridiculous as any particular concept that pops up may seem at first, it is even MORE ridiculous after you start clicking! : ))

1 box thin spaghetti - Wal-Mart Great Harvest enriched spaghetti product, 32 oz.
1 pair of cheap sunglasses, frozen then fogged with steam from boiling spaghetti and promptly re-frozen
1 YW strobe set atop at 30% power with 8” softbox
1 YW strobe set left-center of subject with 1/8 honl grid
1 undersized tank top from college

I’m doubling up this week, since I lost a week or two.

Please listen to this if you have not yet uncovered M83. French musician Anthony Gonzalez is quite talented, and his last double-album release is chock full of gems.. Trust me you will appreciate it.

    well, I made a real mess of it, so didn't much feel like making a meal out of it when I was done!

    Hilarious! I have a pastafarian magnet on my car.

    that is awesome.. I didn't put two and two together until after Mr Umber offered his caption brilliance. That you have an FSM/pastafarian magnet on your car makes you even that much cooler imho!

    Hahaha! I see a Rolling Stone magazine cover in a few of these! Much respect for not taking yourself too seriously and just doing what needs to be done for the theme of the project! Have a great weekend.
