My goal for this self portrait had been to take a photo that was as close to SOOC as possible for me; quite a challenge since I'm used to manipulating things in post! But I made myself be good and only did minor light/color adjustments later on.
This one has a quiet, contemplative feeling to me. I was already wearing the patch on my should before I posed for this photo; it's a numbing patch to help with the frequent muscle pains I have from CFS. I thought about taking it off for the photo, but decided to leave it on as a touch of realism, and to give my looking longingly out the window a bit of grounding in reality.
