laughing, crying or singing? by pistache

laughing, crying or singing?

you may well ask. i was behind the camera for the 'emotion' theme for this week's selfie, and was trying to emulate a bit of carrie mae weems's slow fade to black images, which rather appealed to me: http://carriemaeweems.net/galleries/slow-fade.html. i liked the blur, and the intense emotions she captures
Looks like a scream, are you rehearsing for a remake of "The birds"

Well done. Maybe 'wake in fright'. You've done it well.

ha you make a good Ella lol

did you figure out why she calls them slow-fade to black?

I like it.

Nicely done.

You look horrified

Singing?

This is disturbing and surreal in such a good way. So artistically rendered!

@francoise @francoise there's an explanation in one of the youtubes on her channel i linked you to... something about all the wonderful black singers who are no longer played on the jazz stations, she laments.

You got the intensity here. Because of the look in your eyes, I interpret as a scream - so fear or shock might be the emotion I read. Great emulation for the artist

thanks kali for giving an explanation ... and haha that you all thought i was screaming when i was supposed to be singing ... i've always been a terrible actress, and this weakness clearly continues :)

@pistache i think the best singers are those who screamed a lot as babies!
