Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, clear as the sun..
Song of Solomon 6:10..

I turn my back
To face the sun
There is no lack
Of God's own son,
Who lights the way
For us each day.
Poetry by me AJP

This is a SP that I did this afternoon and I decided to try something different and not face the camera. I pinned in a hair piece to attach to my own hair which is not that long. I just had to be truthful. My own hair didn't get long overnight with a magic grow potion.) I liked the lighting to where I am facing and decided to work my SP in the direction of the sun which rim-lit my shoulders. In evaluating my work, I wish I would have tucked my sleeve in the jumper a little better as it looks like it is bunched up on the side. Of course you don't see this in a self timer when taking a photo of yourself. Also one of the straps on my jumper is twisted. I am probably more critical of myself when I see something I don't like. But I love the lighting on this beautiful Nov. day.

    I love this new look Andrea!!! Before I read what you wrote under this one I went back into some older photos of you trying to determine if your hair was that long and I had just not noticed it - lol : ). The hairpiece looks really nice, I like this back pose a lot and the lighting on your shoulder is great! I don't think that the bunched clothes on the side is detractive at all and I never noticed the twisted strap until you mentioned it.

    I love the different "angle" here. It gives your SP a unique eloquence. Your portrait and poem paired together are perfection.
