"Wild Aim" Self-Portrait Wednesday.

TAKING a cue from another blogger, I decided to take random photos for SP Wednesday and not really aim. Just see what happened.
Well, I got photos of sky, ground and nothing much else. So much for random. I tried being just a little bit more focused, but not looking at the camera during the shot. Just sort of before.
I'm also down-sizing my photos, per Susan Sanford's suggestion -- and it's a good one. (Do go check out her "Nature Boy" today!) I put huge photos on this blog, and I suppose they take many computers a while to "work" with them. But I just love seeing everyone's work up close and in detail. I'll bet most of you know what I mean.
In one of these photos it looks like my face is melting off. My earrings are a long, almost solid, blur. The sky and trees look wavy and shimmery.
The lilies had no smell, by the way. Just looked wonderful -- creamy ivory color. I probably have orange dust on the end of my nose. I haven't checked yet. Just took these and rushed them to you before they were even dry!
I think in one of the photos, the one with the big white slash of sky above, my nose looks swollen, like it found a bee -- or a bee found me.
I've begun my Disco project and I think I might have stumbled on an idea tonight. Can't wait to see where it leads me.
And, oh, yeah, I had that thing done today where you stand by the big humming, ice-cold machine and have your breasts ironed flat, only not with heat. Good for me. I made my yearly appointment and KEPT it. How about you other ladies out there? - fEmmInIsMo

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I posted quite a few more randomized images since you were on last night. I use a Nikom D300, so the automatic functions of the camera are pretty accurate- and astonishing. I absolutely was not looking through the lens. Pretty fun what resulted. A number of gestures, expressions, moments, are less self-conscious in every way, and have a nice discovered poetry to them, in my view. It was a fun process, and interesting in its way.

I also enjoyed viewing your work- interesting honest stuff.

These are superb, Jeanne. I love them and your courage in the face of random theory (lol) gives Me a lot to think about.
That next to last photo is so dreamlike... I love it but then, I love them all. The colours are fantasy incorporated, imho.

That thing? That thing! What the--??? Is it that time again? Didn't I just do this???!
