Foto Fridays: Self-Portrait

So, 2 Dope Sistahs were on Pinterest and thought we would participate in one of the posts, “30 Day Photo Challenge,” which was originally posted on the Little Bennet blog. We decided to present our pictures on Fridays so that we can explore the power of the camera and how we see the world.

Day 1 is a Self Portrait

Da Realist 1: Cuttin’ my eyes

Cuttin' my eyes

Cuttin’ my eyes

Since I suggested “Foto Fridays,” you might think I would have been excited about the self portrait, but I was not. I was excited to finally use my tripod and learn how to set the self-timer on my camera. But I absolutely hate pictures of myself, even though I love taking pictures of everyone else. After taking many, many pictures of myself, I chose this one because it seems to capture one of my signature looks. My mother would describe it as “cuttin’ my eyes” at someone.

Da Hype 1: Salty

Salty about this week in race relations

This picture represents how I feel today and practically all week . . . salty! Actually, “salty” is an understatement.

I was salty on Monday when the Supreme Court decided to punt the Fisher v. University of Texas case back down to the lower courts. I was salty on Tuesday when the same Supreme Court decided to revoke a voter rights provision. I was salty listening to the Trayvon Martin case. I was pissed off reading the ways in which the Prosecution’s witness, Rachel Jeantel, was treated as if she were on trial and not a witness.

I am just plain salty right now!!
