8 May: Hug
Joseph is distrustful of my hugs because he’s scared I’ll tickle him. Which I only do, like, half the time.
My friend KatrinaÂ had an excellent comment on this photo: “I love how a lot of your shots of Joseph have that ‘capturing a rare creature on film’ look/feel!” It’s very true! He is so difficult to get in the frame because he runs quickly at the sight of a camera.
10 May: Read
That craziness appearing just to the left of my face is a plant, not my wild hair.
11 May: Eyes
13 May: Future
This is one of my favorite photos to date. It looks great on black over at Flickr.
I finally bought a tripod (considering the number of self-portraits I take, I’m not sure how I ever did without!) and found a secluded spot to take advantage of the landscape of Texas. I was out there for about an hour and am not sure what to do with all the photos. I thought about posting them here but that seems a bit egotistical. Let me know if anyone is interested in seeing them!
14 May: Baked
You’ve likely already seen this image and the recipe to go along. May 14 was a great excuse to bake something pretty.
15 May: Company
Courtney, me, and Liz. A big “thank you” to Liz’s friend Ryan for snapping the photos of us!
These ladies kept me company through a great semester of Shakespeare followed by a fairly tough semester of Tudor Court literature. Liz just graduated and moved to Florida, and Courtney will be heading home to California after her graduation this summer. They are basically trying to get as far away from me (and each other, apparently) as possible while still remaining in the continental US ;) We took this photo at Liz’s graduation/birthday/bon voyage party.
16 May: Copy
Copies of my sister’s graduation announcement and invitation. I took Tori’s senior portraits a few weeks ago, so seeing them on her invitations was very cool.
17 May: Gross
This is not gross to me–quite the opposite, actually–but I know it is to many. Actually thinking about Sonic’s chili cheese fries makes me realize they are quite gross, but I still have my weaknesses (i.e. cravings).
I just realized I am in every photo except for the one of Leonardo’s eyes, and that day I originally took a photo of myÂ eyes that I decided not to use. I must be getting bored of this project. Though my still life photography is not yet where I’d like, I find self-portraits a bit more fun. The photos take much more work when I’m the one both in front of and behind the camera, but I like the challenge
