I'm replacing my week 3 photo with this one. It's more in keeping with the style of invisible self portraits that I've been doing, but is still a reflection of me in a shiny surface.

In this case, a shadowy reflection of me is shown on the floor of the supercuts I go to when I don't go to a barber.

This photo is shadow blending into light which represents my experience with barber shops. I would actually prefer the barbershop experience to hair salons, but they often won't cut women's hair and I won't get my hair cut where Carlie can't go with me. It's one of the things we've done together for years. In Los Angeles it was never a problem but in Phoenix it became one. Several local barbers have kicked her out saying "We don't cut women's hair" even tho she has long had men's hair styles. I really don't understand why anyone would refuse to cut someone's hair based on gender. She was really hurt, so for some time we have just gone to the supercuts down the street. Who knew a haircut could mean so much.
