The orange dress collection

These are a few of my favorite photos I took during my 3rd attempt at the 365 Days project. The 365days is a project where you take a photo of yourself for a year. I don't like doing the arm length head shots but after about 3 months my photos always reverts to those, usually because of lack of time.

I love love love this dress! It's a cute vintage '70s dress. I edited the sky to make it look nicer and it really made a difference. Or at least I think it did. :P

And this last photo was part of my House work "mini series". I'll revisit that when I have the time.

Unleash the Jinn!

It's been awhile since I've done a self-portrait. I had to settle down a bit, this year has been a little hectic for me. Getting out of the navy, a 2 month trip around Europe, and currently searching for a job hasn't left me much time to pick up the camera like I wish I could.

But I finally was able to get in front and behind the camera today! My brother brought me a beautiful oil lamp from Iraq while he was deployed there.

A Jinn was living in it! Though he wasn't a wishing Jinn I sadly found out. He was a nice Jinn, we had a lovely chat. The stories in 1001 Arabian nights must have exaggerated a bit when explaining Jinns ;)

Anyways, out of my imagination and back into reality I go. Here is the original. I never do too much editing on my pictures. To me that takes away from the actual point of taking a good photo.
