This weeks Theme is EYES:
How do you like that one?
My eyes are the green ones – with flecks of yellow, I had a fever on Thursday and my eyes turn green or even almost yellow when I’m sick- and Hazel/ Brown ones (when I’m not really ill my eyes are hazel or brown). My husbands eyes are a grayish blue – kind of crystallized.
I was racking my brain this week trying to figure out what type of photo to present for this theme. Eyes, eyes … what can I do?
So on Thursday I held the camera up to my face and snapped some photos of my eyes. Then my husband came home and practically peed his pants (do men do that?) when he saw what I was doing. Hey, my pics were turning out … it was just a little weird. So he took over and took a few of the pictures. You can see him reflected in my eye taking my picture in the second eye at the top.
As Chris and I were standing in the kitchen taking pictures of each other eyes our boarder came home. Now, he was really puzzled as to what we were doing, and I don’t think he understood when I tried to explain that it was for a photo project that I was doing on Saturday. Oh well. He volunteered his eyes though- that’s his in the bottom right.
This project shouldn’t have been too hard for me … after all, I think I used to have some kind of eye fascination. You should have seen the walls of the bathroom in my first apartment. I spent a few months clipping photos out of magazines. Most were head shots, some were body shots, and for some strange reason a few feet fell into that pile too. Some of the head shots were large and I just cut an eye or two eyes out of several of those. Why? I don’t remember – perhaps I didn’t really like the actor or actress or think the face was all that attractive, but I suppose I thought the eyes were.
Is this starting to sound weird? It wasn’t really. Honest. It was just a redecorating plan and half joke. I haven’t talked much about my love or renovating our home, or painting the walls, or the venetian plaster effect that I did in our living room. I might if I feel better and my husband and I start doing more renovating this winter.
I had a room-mate in that tiny little apartment of mine. One night she went out to a party or a club and I stayed home. It was her birthday the next day and I wanted to play a joke. Quite an elaborate joke. Once she left I got out the wallpaper paste and my stock of clipped photos and I went into the bathroom. I think she went out around nine in the evening. I was just finishing up the job when she returned at oh about 3 a.m.
I’d been hoping to either be in bed when she returned or perhaps finished and watching TV. Oh well, she caught me, but I got to see her reaction. She loved it. It was actually pretty cool, a collage of famous and gorgeous faces. Here and there I’d placed some fantastic looking pictures of men – shirtless of course.
You wouldn’t think a bathroom would be a “must see” when new people came to visit, but it was. Just about everyone that saw it loved it. A few people who used the washroom or showered in there came out saying they were a bit freaked out by all the eyes looking at them, but they still liked the room.
People would go in and look at the pictures and try to figure out which actress or actor it was, or which model. I did that a long time ago. I doubt that that bathroom is still decorated with my collage of photos, but it would probably be even more interesting now than it was then since all those actresses and actors have aged or weren’t all that famous then as they are now.
I wonder if it’s still up?
Has anyone else done any interesting collage decorating?
Happy Autumn! It becomes fall at uh 4:03 a.m. (or something like that). Enjoy!
