The Long Way Home

Sarah thought it would be funny to wear what she dubbed the “Lisa wig” to create my twin. The wig actually looks a lot like my hair when  I wake up in the morning (no, really) and it’s also proof that Sarah can look good in anything, she’s so talented and pretty. One of these photos was also a rare moment where you not only see my face, but all of me, something I’ve been self-conscious about as I get older. What began as an effort in self portraiture to obscure my face in public forums such as Facebook or Flickr has turned into something of a shield in my photography. So this was an exercise in setting aside my vanity and poking fun at myself.

Thanks, Lizzie! I like the sky too – it makes Sarah look almost saintly.
