Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

Holiday Selfs

I seem to have made a tradition of doing self portraits on or around holidays. I didn't intend to do one this Thanksgiving, but I ended up with exactly that. Quickly shot from the doorway of an unlit empty storage unit. Camera set on rapid shot self timer, propped on the folding two step stepladder I have, angle tilt in the second one achieved by the camera sitting on the brim of my baseball cap.

For several reasons I think the images are not the greatest, but they seem to capture my dark, frustrated, lonely, brooding mood of late. Or as American photographer Tawnee Lynne Cowan said, it speaks to my "ability to yell in a whisper."
