    and what you are is beautiful.
    the Goo Goo Dolls

    I have been struggling for almost three months, since I made this photo, and even before then, to make a photograph with which I am truly satisfied. I can't begin to explain how awesome it is to post th is photo and feel so proud.

    This shot was inspired by Utata's Me and My Camera project... it just took me a while to incubate the idea. It is a sort of follow up to this photograph, from last summer. Same photographer, same prop camera. New studio, new home, new country.. me, one year later.

    The 10 cent designer, Kalabird, and 24 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Excellent portrait. Beautiful look.

      For sure, a shot to be proud of! I particularly like the composition, with your elbow just touching the bottom of the frame; it gives the picture a three dimensional quality in that your arm and the camera seems to come out from the photo. Wonderful background colour too!

      Stunning portrait... I absolutely love the color of your hair next to that soft bluey-green background!

      How did I miss this? Oops just checked the date and worked it out, anyhow I'm glad to have found it at last, and can only agree with all the others.

      ~year by year, each snap of the shutter, you grow, no matter the results each image is a growth, and extension of who you are, in some manner of speaking~
