I struggled with the “lips” theme that the photo mojo motivator threw out at me today. I had lofty notions of assembling a series of self-portraits of my own lips in various expressions. The snag is that I'm not keen on having my photograph taken coupled with struggling to get the lighting right so I rapidly rejected all my attempts.
I then moved onto more abstract numerous lipstick blots on tissues, lipstick still-lives and lining extended tubes of lipsticks up like little soldiers. But then I couldn't choose between the resultant shots. I asked LB for advice and she conceded the colour was preferable in the still-life but the orderly standing to attention lipsticks were very me!
