Losing Face

This was taken around the same time as these two photos.
Just playing around with quickly turning my head.
The photo didn’t work as well as I’d hoped due to how the blur was captured. However, when I came back to it the day after I first processed it and being more aggressive with adjustments the below came out and I feel the result works a bit better.

I feel the image is a little uncomfortable in a way. It probably isn’t but it’s how it feels to me. There’s a sense of loss of identity on the individual level, I think, or maybe a sense of masking. An eye still comes through, however. Maybe it speaks of something that remains beneath it all. Who knows?

This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s “Monochrome Madness” for this week. Participating is pretty straightforward and something I recommend. If you do, then include the tag “monochrome-madness” in your post.
If not participating, then at the least check out Leanne’s photography as well as what other people submit.

A lot of what people are submitting will likely end up here.

I hope you enjoy.

    I like photos that are slightly “not perfect”. It really shows our imperfect world.
