The Masks We Wear

I’ve been thinking about it, and I’m going to try being a bit more intimate here. Part of what’s on my mind lately is that I seem to have quite a bit of disconnect regarding human interactions. Everyone has walls, and some are thicker than others. It’s probably a life’s journey to understand the layers that even I don’t know about myself, but isn’t that what part of living is about?

There is this peace I feel when it’s just me and my camera. It reminds me of why I started taking outfit photos- I was trying to be less awkward in front of the camera, and I guess it worked, but only when there isn’t anyone else behind it. Heh. The anxiety will have to be something I work my way out of. In the meantime, there’s all these masks to wear, and all the stories to share, and life is going to be as interesting as it’s always been.

Here’s what I wore for my self portrait session. I went with a simple but bold combination of black and red, having the oversized, angular vest play off the waves of my skort. As for the mask, I’d been waiting for a chance to use this beautiful embroidered piece ever since Shasha brought it back from her trip to Europe. It’s so pretty. ♥
