Random Thoughts.


Yesterday, after teaching someone the basics of makeup (and after putting makeup on our faces), I decided to take a photo of myself. I haven't done this in awhile, self-portraits. I've changed a lot since January. I've put on some weight, gained new experiences, and is richer in things and ways that matter.

Remind me though to smile in pictures. I look shocked here, no? LOL. This was taken in very low light, reason why I processed this in black and white and added more noise to the already noisy picture. And I rarely really put makeup on (except for powder, blush, and lipgloss), so I kind of look different here.

But different is good.

And yes, I'm taking out my makeup brushes again.

. . . . .

I'm back to posting at Flickr. I've neglected it for almost seven months. And that's not good. I shouldn't be neglecting things I've chosen to do.

I miss Flickr and my Flickr-friends. I've found good friends there. Some of them have constantly been writing me in the months that I wasn't posting anything.

Yesterday, someone wrote: "I love how creative, fun, beautiful, charming, intriquing, magical, mystical, colorful, & inspirational all your work is! You are so talented!"

I am grateful to people who take time to send me love messages like this. This inspires me to go on, to never stop taking pictures.

. . . . .

And then, there's Mary who, when I told her that I pursued photography, emailed me: "You've always been the brave one."

Pin It!

Some people have been making kulit about teaching them or doing their makeup. And I finally found time, quickly though. I've almost forgotten how much I love doing makeup.

You're right, it's such an enjoyable art. :)

Thank you, Chel. I need to lose weight, though. I can hear my knees crack when I walk. LOL. :D

You are one of the bravest people I know!

Thank you, T! Now that you mentioned it, I do have a picture of me as a young girl with that exact same expression.

I think, I'm really just a little girl deep inside. :)

I agree, makeup party! It would be fun!
