up close

I thought this would be a fun meme to do.

Instructions: Take a picture of yourself, right now. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair, just take a picture. Post that picture with no editing and post these instructions with it.

First attempt:

I definitely have my pimply face on.

I'm thinking of starting a self-portrait project. I'm not sure why, as I don't think of myself as being particularly photogenic. Maybe it's because of this or this. Or maybe it's because I really like Cindy Sherman's work. Whatever the case, it could be an illuminating project. I'm not sure if I could pull off a daily self-portrait, but maybe I could do a weekly one.
