This is a tough one. If you read my blog, then you have already seen photographs of me here and/or on Flickr. I think it is really difficult to intentionally show your true self. Especially through the medium of photography. And through the medium of the blog. You are always editing, selecting what you want people to see.
The top photograph was taken by my husband Tomory. The day after our wedding. I was so tired. I took a nap. You are pretty defenseless when you sleep...but I messed with the color and the lighting in this photograph...to make it look "better" ...and I cropped out my legs, and underpants ;)
The other photo. It's Tomory and me at the end of our wedding reception. Before the after-party. Tipsy, tired, my
makeup is all worn off. I snapped a photo of us before we went back to Irene's Adobe for more celebrating. But I still gave this the old B&W treatment...to make us look less harsh!
The weekend we married and during our honeymoon- was probably the most I've felt like my true self in a while. No work. No real stress. Just enjoying the world together.
