Dry Swallow

Nothing too special except that now my tongue is numb.


I took 95 photos and only 1 looked halfway decent! I guess that's all it takes...


Just to clear suspicions, it's not narcotics. I'm not into drugs. I do, however, have a headache problem that calls for 400-800mg of ibuprofen per day, which often makes it look as though I'm a pill-popper. Trust me, drugs are not my thing.


Hmmm, I feel this photo is missing something...

    I don't know what this photo is missing, it looks pretty good to me :)
    I like the numbers on the pill, it makes it even more freaky, the blue streak also does the finishing job, to make this one a fave.

    About taking 95 photos, its also happens to me sometimes, and the other times the 'good' one happens first and all the rest turn out 'not so good'. I guess its luck and a bit of 'in the moment' consequences that make you take the photo differently the next turn.

    well, for all the trouble you went through, i say it was well worth it.
    suffering for art just makes it that much more valuable eh?
    anyways, i really do like it, the crop is great, and it has a the concept is great. And yes, I do love your camera!

    beautiful shot. something missing? um... What if you tried turning down saturation a little bit on everything except the pill?

    Just a thought. Loves it though~
