52 photos of me – instalment 2

faded-me

I’ve kept up with the project I accidently started in January to take a photo of myself every week.

For this set I applied the soft faded effect from the Pioneer Woman to all of them because the top left one needed attention due to poor indoor light and then I decided to to the same to all.

I love that the strong colour in my shirt in the top right photo survived being faded.  It and the photo bottom left were taken a week apart but could be 2 sides of the same photo.

The bottom right photo was my one for this week because I’m much more aware of thinking about washing my hands here in Bangladesh – because of the ever present dust; because of the lack of soap and clean towels in some places; and because the cleanliness of what I put in my mouth is a more present thought  (no problems yet – and that’s probably already too much information!!!).

The background to the photos is a texture from Pixel Dust Photo Art – called yesteryear.  I’m liking using textures instead of papers at the moment.

Lovely LO Helena. I interchange papers and textures all the time, particularly on layout's as I just can't get to grips with digital patterned paper!

I love the pictures of you that you are posting. I have a hard time with exposing myself to my readers. I guess it's a confidence thing. You are a great photographer and I love following your blog. Thanks for writing about your unique experiences. Peggy from PA
