My husband bought me these amethyst earrings for Christmas that year. I was attempting to take some photos of them and this is what I got. I like the black and white one, the color one is ok too.  The black and white one is interesting to me. Sometimes you have a specific idea of what you think you look like and then something comes along and makes you realize you have no idea what you really look like. The more photos I took of myself for this project the more I realized I look very much like a cousin of mine.  I previously thought we couldn’t have been more different. Perception is very interesting to me.
