I’m feeling very motivated to do some sort of a photographic project. I’m not sure where I want it to go, except that I’m pretty sure it won’t be an OOTD. There are so many people who are doing that, and doing it really well.
I don’t know.
I’m considering calling it the Rad Fatties Project, though, whatever it might turn out to be. (Thanks to Mama Carrie in the comments for the name inspiration.)
I’m motivated by this photographer. Jen Davis has a stunning, mind-blowing self-portrait set. If you haven’t seen it, please, please go check it out. It’s time well spent.
I went outside today and took some self-portrait-y pictures.
Maybe I’ll start a self-portrait project. But, I’m wary of it turning into either an excuse to pick myself apart, or a sneaky substitute for weighing myself.
Maybe I’ll just put up a silent self-portrait. Rad Fatties Friday? The silence means you can’t apologize or give an excuse for what you find wrong in your own photograph. Because I can sit here and tell you that I scrunch my shoulders inward to make myself smaller, or that I have a double chin–but those things are obvious and maybe best left unsaid.
Yes, I think silence, except a title. The title for these three pictures would be: This is what 340 looks like.
Also, I think this project would be a good addition to my Defiant Athlete academic study.
So, I’ve talked myself into it. Rad Fatties Friday. One silent self-portrait or a series–every Friday. Maybe a picture of you in your life. Or an OOTD. Whatever. Post it on your blog. I’ll see if I can figure out how to do a Linkie thing by then. Who’s in?
(If you don’t have a blog and want to participate, you could send your picture to me to post here.)
