Award Shortlist   


By cattyal  
Another set-up that came to me today - well it was going to be a load of fabric wrapped round my head but I was buying paracetamol and decided bandages would be better.

Another tricky one to do - a few test shots without the bandage and then wrap up my head, take 95 shots and see what happens.

I've a few I quite like, one which I'll upload with this one and then the others might appear over the next few days.

Thanks again to Zarozinia for your grungy texture - I've still not got round to making my own Smile

Thanks everyone - these shots came out better than expected and therefore encouraging. Sometimes I'll do a load of shots and can't find a decent one amongst the lot of them.

Breathing happily was ok - well could have been better but I'm happy to suffer slightly for my 'art' Smile You're right though Roy - I don't really do aggressive - even dynamic is pushing it a bit for me - easier though with my face hidden.

Thanks for the mods as well - I really should make more of an effort with B&W but it simply rarely occurs to me! I like the double take too - again that kind of approach rarely comes to mind so it's good to see.

A belated thank you all again - the inconvenience and near suffocation was worth it Smile

Thank you too Pete for the EC - that brightened up my morning considerably!

Thanks Mike and of course everyone else! - I'm just about to go and wrap my head again - thought I'd better come down and shut the back doors up just in case the neighbours boy decided to swan in uninvited as he tends to do! Seeing me half clad with my head wrapped in bandages might not be a good thing for an 8 year old to witness!

Thanks again folks - I'm rather enjoying these bandage pics and have more in mind for the weekend. Better hope for dreary weather so that I don't settle down in the garden with a book instead!
