Create a portrait of your abstract qualities, that inner self, the one you can capture only by pointing your camera at something--or someone--else, in a way that only you can do.

Rules: Title your comp using music or poetry as inspiration.
New, or old, or very old photos allowed. Use anything you like to PP, from straight out of the camera to combining multiple separate photos & using textures, text, & borders. How I Did It notes are encouraged but not required. Post as often or as seldom as you like.

Perhaps the most famous Abstract Self-Portrait is "I Am My Work -- the Thorn that Weeps, & Holds the Sky Entire..." by 21.gif Bear_Music

I can start it off--feel free to practice your "first reaction" commenting on mine, no offense will be taken.

Very interesting and challenging. Perhaps too challenging for me. I have to give this a lot of thought and sleep on it. I'm really glad you suggested this thought, because it is so much food for thought.

This is a wonderful idea. I'd love to see this as regular challenge too.

All the things we hide in water
hoping we won't see them go—
(forests growing under water
press against the ones we know)—

and they might have gone on growing
and they might now breathe above
everything I speak of sowing
(everything I try to love).
