Shattered

I had the itch for a self-portrait for quite a few weeks, and finally had a chance yesterday to do one that I had sketched out a while ago.

For the most part it turned out how I had wanted it to. I do wish that there was more glass on my face, but it just kept sliding off. I plan on doing a sequel of sorts, and have figured out a way that should get the glass to stick, so hopefully I can get to that in the near future.

I am really drawn to the one with the eyes closed, but have heard from many that the prefer the opposite. So I am curious to hear, which one do you here on my blog prefer? I would love to hear some feedback!

I started shooting for this semester’s project tonight, which brought me to my friend’s storage unit. Her and her husband were reorganizing things and found some broken frames so I grabbed a few pictures after getting my project shots out of the way.

My project (as of now) is focusing on things that hold us back. Things like money, time, possessions, et cetera. So, I would love to hear, what holds you back?

Elliot (my boyfriend) is a computer science major and works for a place that deals with laptops (selling, trading, buying, repairing) at the moment. So he has access to a ton of computer parts that no longer work and would just get thrown out. He likes to teach me about computers, and brought me this hard drive to look at a bit ago, and I kept it to take pictures of (because I am just as much of a nerd as he is). Well tonight he wanted to see what happened when he took a lighter too it. The answer to that question is nothing. At least at the moment. He then put some pressure on it just as he was walking away and it busted. So in case any of you were curious, hard drives can take serious amounts of heat, at least until they get pressure put on them.
