15-01-26 Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself – Self Portrait Blizzard Version

A photographic portrait is a picture of someone who knows he is being photographed, and what he does with this knowledge is as much a part of the photograph as what he’s wearing or how he looks.
Richard Avedon

The Weekly Challenge is Express Yourself

15-01-24 Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself Take 2

“What a gulf between impression and expression! That’s our ironic fate—to have Shakespearean feelings and (unless by some billion-to-one chance we happen to be Shakespeare) to talk about them like automobile salesmen or teen-agers or college professors. We practice alchemy in reverse—touch gold and it turns into lead; touch the pure lyrics of experience, and they turn into the verbal equivalents of tripe and hogwash.”

Aldous Huxley

The weekly challenge is Express Yourself.

Since I believe that is what I do with this blog everyday, I am choosing to highlight others I have met in my travels over the years who expressed themselves.

My first attempt is here.

If you visited Provincetown anytime in the summers between about 2000 and 2011 you may have met Ella. Damn but she could sing.

15-01-23 Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself –

The challenge this week is Express Yourself

Since a blog is nothing but a person expressing themselves I thought I would start with moments I have caught of others expressing themselves. I may have posted these before during 2013 but I don’t think so. Even if I have I think it is a good way to kick off express yourself weekend.
