The Final Edited Draft

It started to rain on me at several points, and the fog was unbelievable! But hey I loved how it gave an eerie sense to the pictures.

First I tried the property wall adjacent to the street, but I decided I didn’t like the background and I wanted to be closer to the fog.

I first tried it with the apron, but I decided it was to distracting. It’s really difficult to take self portraits because I always seem to end up making a funny face.

Until I finally got a shot that I liked! (As seen above).

Kitty RafikiI got really bored one day at home so I photoshopped my neighbors cat’s face onto mine. This all stemmed from the idea that I wanted to see my eyes in the darkness.

While I admit this was the most wonderfully satisfying photography “assignment” (considering the fact that I was burning a particularly nasty ex boyfriends shirt) I must warn that it was incredibly difficult and I am alive by sheer Irish luck. But I couldn’t resist, something about the first real snow storm just made me think, “hey, let’s set myself on fire”

IMG_9848First we tried against the wall, but we decided it didn’t give the affect that we wanted.

So then we did an up close against my black drop to see what it looks like and decided to run with it!

My feet and I are missing summer.

I took my brother to a beautiful pond in Andover. Little did he know I had more than just a nature walk in mind.IMG_9552

I borrowed him to help me with my concentrationIMG_9561 IMG_9568IMG_9595 IMG_9604

Let’s just say that my feet were incredibly cold. And I was sure wishing that I brought an extra pair of shoes and possibly some toe warmers.
