Theme of the Week:
Okay....so.....well.....I tried something new this week. Ummmmm....okay...so maybe SEVERAL new things. tee hee
Watch out....you may not like what you see, and for that, I'm truly sorry!
I did A LOT of thinking about this theme. While it would be rather easy to take a photo and over-expose the shot, I really started feeling like I wanted to say something MORE this week. This entire "52 weeks of ME" project has been incredibly interesting for me. I have felt, well......over-exposed. I have posted more pictures of myself in the last few months, than I have in nearly the entire time I've been blogging. I have taken WAY more pictures of myself than ever before, and I have felt....embarrassed....and awkward.....and vulnerable. Yes.....vulnerable, so I decided that I wanted to take some pics that portrayed how I've been feeling. EXPOSED.....VERY EXPOSED!
For the record...I have never taken photos of myself like this. The entire mood of these shots are nothing I have even ventured into. This was such an interesting project from conception to shooting....to editing. It doesn't end there. The idea of actually posting these on my blog is terrifying. BUT....isn't that the point? OVER-EXPOSED!
This first shot is what I imagined when conjuring up this project, but instead of just posting one photo....I decided to go ahead and post them all. Why not? I might as well lay it all out there.
“Most urgently, women's identity must be premised upon our "beauty" so that we will remain vulnerable to outside approval, carrying the vital sensitive organ of self-esteem exposed to the air”~ Naomi Wolf
So....there you have it! Corey....in the raw....feeling so very exposed.
I had a little fun with one of the shots....and for some reason...I rather like the result. I just might print it up for my mom for Mother's Day!
Just kidding! tee hee....
