Flaws and all by lorrainemd Flaws and all by lorrainemd
People have asked me why I don't do too many self-portraits anymore...
there are alot of reasons. And they ask me why the ones that I have always cover part of my face....this, i guess is a security blanket.

So in order to break from the norm, here is a exposing self-portrait...no fancy clothes, makeup or props to hide behind...just me...flaws and all.

I'm sure you've heard it all before at this point in regards to this picture, Lorraine, but if you can stand one more ----

I really like the simplicity of this shot, and how nice it turned out should be a testament to how hard it is to make shots like this look good. It might seem easy, but I don't think it's ever simple to get one of these, but that could be me and my equipment. I also really like the duality that's going on here, where you are obviously vulnerable in your nakedness, but you seem so strong at the same time as well. As if one situation causes the other. It's awesome, and I really like this in your gallery. :rose:

who was it that said "the beauty is in the flaws"?

the beauty of nature is in its imperfections. you may not realize how beautiful you are until you step away from the masks, the shields or barriers that you put up around you.

the cliche is that everything is in the eye of the beholder.

Heh. I was going to write a comment about "flaws and all? what flaws? You're beautiful!" or something to that effect, but it looks like about 100 people have beaten me to the punch. Anyway, in this case, the masses are correct. :)

Beauty maybe in the eye of the beholder...
But when it fades it will definitely be colder

Are you not the most beautiful woman?

I don't know your heart, but if it's anything like your eyes describe, you are an amazing, strong-willed, determined, driven, passionate, fun loving, crazy, happy, self judging incredible person.

This is wonderful!

::gets out a magnifying glass.... tosses it:: ::gets out a microscope:: ::rubs his eyes:: um, what flaws? You've got great looking skin, and, to be blunt, are quite beautiful. Don't hide it!!! Btw, I love the expression on this piece, I can almost feel the " you wanna see my face, fine! here's my face, happy?" hehe to which I think most have responded,(and I won't differ.) Yes, we are happy. :) thx for opening up for us.

What a lovely visage. Nice image with excellent as usual contrast. Nice pout to your expression. I usually like images like this to be bereft of makeup to truely expose the person in the image. Some water drops on the skin would have also been interesting. Great self portrait.

What flaws? You're fucking gorgeous! :w00t:

I know how hard it can be to shake negative thoughts about yourself -- after all, I'm a quadriplegic neat-freak with Cerebral Palsy, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder (i.e. Manic Depression) and skin as only befits a Frenchman: that is, oily as fuck -- and I'm having a hell of a time with it! *lol*

On the other hand, you should bear in mind that someone's always worse off than you, eh? Without all of the interesting peculiarities that exist in the human race, we would be driven mad by our similarities ... anyways, whenever you're feeling down, remember that there's a Canadian cripple rooting for you :P

H.

P.S.: you'll have to excuse my language; it's a bad habit, like so many other things I do :)
