As a neurotic blogger it’s my job—nay, my pleisure—to prevent myself from succeeding. For instance, I am careful to make the same mistakes as often as I can. And I restrict myself with silly rules rather than set myself sublime goals. Today I decided to defy my habit of shooting myself in the foot. (In the foot because the silly rule says that thighs are for arrows. And kneecaps are for gangsters.) For this pictorial, I tinkered for two days trying to get the right combo of tattoos to fill up the fields of flesh exposed by R2 A/D/E’s dress. The tats then spent a day playing “now you see it now you don’t” on Maitreya’s Lara body. Typically I fail to photograph the elements that were toughest to coordinate—see the last pic in this post for an example—or I don’t like the picture and decide not to use it. Not this time. Not after three days of hasslement. I deliberately shot the tricky tats head on and I am posting the pic even though I dislike it. Why do I dislike it? Because I deliberately shot the tricky tats head on. Obviously.
If you asked me I’d tell you that I never do closeup shots because they are pure vanity. Really I’m concerned that the closer the shot the more obvious my limitations will be. Today I fear that you will see my misplacement of nose-rings or my 1,286th failure to correct the dumb dent in the line of my av’s upper lip. If this pic made it into the post it’s because I deliberately shot it half blurred, guaranteeing that it would be 50% less bad.
I hate it when my av appears to be floating above the floor (or chair or bed). It’s not a pet peeve because it’s all my fault. I have never been able to get a floor pose to put my av on the floor. (Four years ago Shortcake Sugarplum explained to me what I was doing wrong. I never got it right and I never had the nerve to ask her again.) Today, this pic of a floating crawler makes it into the post because my av is in outer space, where gravity ain’t all that.
I have a bad habit of washing out my av by layering her with variations on a single colour. Today I went with rose gold hair and rose gold halo. And I’m not-so-secretly chuffed. (The prominent nipple adds to the high.) Nyah nyah me.
