Self-Portrait ‘Duality’

Who am I? It depends on the context.

I’m always myself, but the side I show varies with the each audience.   I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing, and as much as I admire people who put all of themselves out there 100% of the time, I just can’t do it, nor do I want to.

Once I’m comfortable with someone, forget it though…. I’m an open book, they will get all of me whether they want it or not. I’ll bring on the perverted, crazy, psychotic that I truly am, but why scare them off right away? Right?

I have many sides,  few people are unlucky enough to get them all. But let’s be honest, there are some settings where you just have to refrain from showing your true self, like…

A bake sale at your kids school for example:

“Hey, I’m Dye, so and so’s mother.”
“I’m Mary, nice to meet you. Care for one of my muffins, I brought a big box.”

 

Now this… this is where I refrain, because you know what I’m thinking of saying?

You have a big box and you want me to eat your muffin. 😀

 

That’s just one of many examples.  The truth is, you get the me that I’m comfortable with showing you.

When I do self-portraits I like to show my sexy side, or my fun side, very seldom will I show or talk about my feelings, which I have many of because, well… I’m a girl.

In a professional setting, I keep it classy, or at least I try to. Sometimes I’ll do something stupid and ruin my image. On a few occasions, just recently in fact, I’ve sent out emails using the wrong email account, the one where my signature links to all of my online shenanigans. Sigh… I might as well have just sent a message saying, “It was a pleasure to work with you, oh by the way…. here’s a link if you want to see my ass and read about how much I love sex. Okay then, let’s do business again.” Arghhh!  This is what happens when you have multiple email, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, you lose track.

Oh well, thankfully it takes a lot to embarrass me, I am who I am. You either like me, or you don’t.Whatever face I show you, it’s still 100% me, it’s just usually not all of me at once.

…..And that’s what inspired the image above.  Every month one of the Self-Portrait groups I’m a part of will hold a photography challenge.  This month the theme is ‘Duality’, a way of showcasing different sides of your personality. Here’s the information if anyone is interested in participating.

‘Dismissed’ Self-Portrait

Didn’t expect my first self portrait of 2017 to be kind of depressing looking. Geez! I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come this year. :/

I was actually in a decent mood when I took this.  Of course, it was only 7am and everyone was still asleep, so I had no reason to be blah….yet.  As the day went on however….BLAH!  Maybe subconsciously I knew that when the the kids woke up they would act like awful demon spawns sent here to test every ounce of patience I had “kids”.  Ah…yes, my little angels! By the end of the day I was run ragged.  Didn’t help that I also felt old yesterday, I don’t usually feel that way, but I’m starting to notice how gravity is taking over my face, and I hate it. Thank goodness for make up, and Photoshop, and boobs that distract people from looking at my face. Even I, in this photo am staring down at my boobs, thinking “you’re all that’s saving me, don’t let me down, boobs!”
