The 31st round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt is upon us. This is my entry for the word "Window"
Window. Its like a thing you can see out of... almost like a window to the soul, but not. So I decided to make a self portrait with a window to my soul....
I tried mocking up something, and immediately hated it. I mean, can you blame me?
So in desperation I looked up to the My Little Pony on my shelf (fun fact: first Christmas I shared with my now-wife, then girlfriend, she asked me what I wanted, and I said "a pony" so she got me a My Little Pony doll. I had no choice but to marry her after that) ... and inspiration struck.
My Little Ponies have designs on their asses - they call em cutie marks, I call em ass-tattoos. Throughout my brainstorming for window I kept getting flashbacks to my PTSD inducing IT days brought on by that damnable Windows OS. So doing the math: pony ass + logo == good enough!
And by definition good enough is good enough, so I grabbed the pony, took it outside and tossed it on a small concrete block retaining wall in my back yard, positioned it for the then setting sun, and started shooting.
One of the straight-from-camera shots looks like this:
