Oh dear. What to say about these pics? I've had them queued up for a couple of days now, and not sure what to say. I want to say something, but I'm not sure what.

Oh well, here goes...

I like them, particularly this one, but I find them disturbing. Maybe it's ME, something in MY subconscious. I find them a bit creepy. Are you saying something about yourself in these? I feel a conflict, an internal struggle. Anguish.

Ugh. I don't want to say anything more, in case I'm reading something into this that just isn't there. It's frightening.

to be honest , i know what these photos are about , and i dont ! if thats possible ? haha
let me explain : with these photos i almost wanted to make them have an ability for discussion , but leave the theme so open , that the topic of discussion i couldnt predict ? and that very thing seems to be happening ! lol
i had no real story i wanted to tell , like right now in my life , i have nothing about myself going on that excited me enough that i wanted to say it . although i did however want to play on the idea of being real and fake - this is very much prominent in my work and with guys at the moment , and its annoying me understandably , its all about creating your own opinion of something , even when there is no one thing shoved in your face ? nudity , sexuality , stuggle , macabre thoughts , psychological thoughts - it really is a case of see things for what they are , or see things for what you want to see ? but tell me what they are to you ! haha :D
i hope i made some sense there ?
