She Claimed She Loved The Camera

She claimed she loved the camera. She responded to it's naked glare, it's slavish attention to every expression of face and body, with the kind of immediacy a trusted lover could expect. ~Anne Edwards

Not much time for traditional art this week but I did manage to process a few photos and take a self portrait. It's been a while since I was inspired to take a self portrait that wasn't on the spur of the moment or with the iPhone. I was inspired by the quote. Sometimes, it's the other way around and the image calls for me to dig up a fitting quote, one that captures exactly what I was trying to say when I took the photograph.

Still writing steadily every day for the NaNoWriMo project but the tank is running low. I love the meat of the story, but it's gotten scattered and really needs a lot more back story in the beginning. Editing is going to take a long, long time I'm afraid! However, once November is over, I must concentrate on finishing The Sketchbook Project since that will be due January 15th and we all know how fast the holidays skip by us!

So, here are the few images besides the selfie that I managed to process this week. Enjoy!

Shall we meet by the pale dull pallor of an old gas light?

Speak poetry to me and you will warm my soul.

What a wonderful and diverse compilation of images; especially your self-portrait! You look nothing short of a stunning sexpot! Over 39,000, that's almost 40,000! You're soooo close!!! Kudos for consistently getting words on the page! Editing could be fun ... and most importantly, at your leisure. Thanks so much for your comment on my blog; it feels good to have your support and uplifting comments always :) ♥

Thanks Lita for your support too! I know, I'm am so close now! Too bad my story is going to be longer than 50,000 words,lol. Yes, I will enjoy the Editing part I think. Really polishing it up! And next year, I'm counting on you to do it with me! :)

WOW! What a great shot of you! That is one lucky camera:) You look fantastic! You have done incredible meeting your writing goal. I am sure you will do just as well when it comes time to edit. The best part... like Lita said it "will be at your leisure"

Thanks! I have really good light in the bedroom. :)
I'm looking forward to the editing part. I'm actually going to finally buy a book on writing and figure out the best way to go about it. The front of my story needs filling in badly, but I'm loving the middle part which is the meat of the story, so that's a start!
