self portrait challenge – bathroom


this is my first contribution to self portrait challenge. i’ve completed the challenge in the past, just not gone all the way to posting here.

i found the bathroom topic to be intriguing for a few reasons.
the first being that i love the bathroom here at my boyfriend’s apartment and was excited to photo-document myself in it.
the second being that scene in Say Anything when James Court gets into his empty tub, with all of his clothes on to cry about how his world is collapsing around him. that scene has always made me cry with empathy.
the third reason takes the second reason into consideration. i’ve been going thru a lot of changes emotionally and mentally and find that i gain solace when in the bath.

in these photos, i attempted to capture the strong, yet emotionally challenged state i’ve been existing in for the past few months. it just so happens that these two images were, respectively, the first and last photos i took for this challenge.

    I understand.. my world has been so crazy lately – there have been times I’ve just wanted to throw myself somewhere and sob. I think you completely captured the mood. Welcome to SPC.
