A favorite photo of yourself
I was away so this is a post I missed out posting - but still really wanted to. I hope you don't mind.
As Patrick's photography skills have improved so have the photos I have of myself. I couldn't pick one but I feel like both of these represent who I am in so many ways. He captured me the way he sees me. The way I look when it's just him and I, which can be quite different to how I look to/for the rest of the world. In these photos I feel like I am in my element. Enjoying the sun and being by the ocean. The first one was after a day of swimming at the beach. I was tired and red, finally out of a bathing suit and ready for a glass of wine. No make-up. Damp hair. Just me. No photoshop. No filters. Just a young woman who has good days and bad days. Who has her insecurities. Her vulnerabilities. But who isn't afraid. Who, for the most part, is confident enough to say, this is me. Get to know me if you like. Judge me if you like. But you will never judge me as harshly as I do myself nor will you love me as much as I love myself.
