In Repose

It’s been a busy few weeks. Well, really, it’s been a busy few months, in many ways. I feel like I’m always behind, always forgetting something important, always on the go. Even when I’m resting, I’m not quite able to force out all the noise of the things I should be doing, things I could be doing, things that I’m going to have to do soon.

I’m tired, but not completely exhausted anymore, at least. I’ve been getting some good down-time in, lately, and that’s helped me feel not quite so overwhelmed. I think I’m catching up, though I’m sure there will be more stuff to do as I finish up what I’m doing. I took a nice break from editing, short though it was, and did a little art stuff. Just for me-time. Besides this shot, you might note there’s a new piece in the Body Lines Gallery, Body Lines 05. Jez was wonderful as always, and we hit the exact shot I wanted within about five minutes of getting set up. I love when that happens, though I probably could have used a little more art time.

I’m laughing at that. It cracks me up that I’m moaning about being too successful on a shoot. But no worries, I’m not moaning too much. I’m actually quite happy about it, and about a lot of things these days. It’s a nice feeling, that “happy” thing.



The lovely model for this shot is Jez, who was very kind to allow me to use this shot.



To repeat the disclaimer, this is a project about re-discovery. It’s about remembering who I am, what I’m about, what I love and what I do not. Fair warning, this project will be posted here rather than at my SFW site because there will be nudity from time to time. Some of it will be of me, some not, some artistic and pretty to look at, some just raw.

I don’t intend to think of something every day and then shoot it, though I may do that sometimes, too. But sometimes I will just shoot, and then find something about myself in the frames and post about that thing, whatever it is.

All my #365SelfDiscovery posts will be filed here.
