thorns and corn fields

12:48 AM

The other day I really felt like taking pictures, but none of my usual models were available, so I ended up taking self-portraits. I actually think it was a step forward on my self-portrait quest. :) Those little branches were filled with thorns that seemed to be in love with my skin, so in consequence I got scratches of all shapes and sizes. It doesn't seem to be possible for me to go on a self-portrait shoot without getting some sort of injury. ahah I bet it's a curse. Anyways I may edit some more later but, for now, these are the ones I have.

 Let me know what you think...






























 Oh and this is me with the curling rolls on, looking like a housewife.
(webcam quality, I know, I know. :)

  1. Oh my, your blouse and your curls and everything look perfect! These are beautiful.

    And I know what you mean about the injury thing, I've twisted many an ankle jumping off things and falling over trying to hold the strangest poses. It comes with the job, I think. ;)

  15. I always try hard to look at your photos objectively; positive comments and praise are nice but they don't always help an artist grow.

    Honestly as someone on the outside looking in I can't think of anything that could improve what you've presented here Teresa. The setting, the mood, the composition all make for some almost ethereal and very captivating photos.

    I always enjoy coming here to see what you're up to, and I've never been disappointed.

  21. Olá teresa. Pelo nome, calculo que fale português daí este comentário. Tomei conhecimento das suas fotografias através de um blog australiano e visitei o seu flickr. Vi cada uma das fotografias que postou. Todas. Para mim, são das fotografias mais bonitas que já tive oportunidade de ver. Fiquei desejosa de ter esse dom ou estar, eu própria, dentro de uma das suas imagens. Quero, portanto, felicitar-lhe e pedir-lhe autorização para partilhar o seu dom no meu blog para que também os meus leitores a possam conhecer.
