A study in humility

















Earlier in the summer as I was getting ready to go out, hair in rollers, lipstick applied, I thought I would see how many ridiculous and unflattering faces I could make in 30 seconds. I have always loved making pretty hideous faces...this is the result. I never intended to post it since it is well, so unflattering, but you know, I think the internet has made many people guilty of purporting to be something they are not, or perhaps just allowing for these these controlled presented concepts of self. It is important to me to remain humble and ridiculous even, so I thought I'd go ahead and post this character study collection because after all, these are possibly some of the least flattering photos of myself!

I agree with you about blogging and identity (false constructions of self)...really funny and cute way to make that statement ;)

I love your philosophy on this. I'm always looking for a great shot to post on my blog. However, isn't the point of beauty to attain it naturally? If we're picking one good shot out of hundreds, how natural is that? You're very brave, and I adore you for that.
