Challenge: Strange-Looking People (Expert Editing)
Collection: 2012 Challenge shots

Prior to this shot, I've done 3 self portraits on DPC. They received a 5.4, 5.6, and 5.8.

Now there's a strange people challenge, and I have a 6.68 going!

I've found my niche.

I'm strange!

About the photo: So -- it was a day where I had very little time and a very big headache. The only idea I had was to take a picture of me in a purple feathered mardi gras mask and see if I could do something with it.

Absolutely not. It looked incredibly dumb.

During the self portrait phase in the morning, I did two shots without the mask for lighting and focus testing.

I grabbed one of those and wondered if I had taken anything during the week that I could use, since the headache was too bad to actually go looking for something.

Two days before I had done a shot for letters a-z: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_998980.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_998980.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I grabbed the top of the i and went from there.

Completely and totally shock that people are liking this -- and two favs?? That's so awesome!

I did not guess this was yours -- much less actually you. It/you are lovely, and you did a masterful job editing.
