abi

today haley and emir got to experience the madness firsthand that usually only emre gets to see. that of me doing my self-portrait class homework. first it consists of me trying five million different ridculous ways of securing my camera into as suitable position, usually resorting to the use of electrical tape and various t-shirts and boxes to prop it up to the right angle. all because i don't have a tripod. whose stupid idea was it to take a self-portrait class without a tripod? i guess it was mine. then they got to see me doing stupid things with chotchskis from the 99 cent store and donning silly costumes and make up. emir was kind enough to be a stand in model for my focus. assignment to follow. it's so not done yet though.
what i've learned: i'm a terrible model. have no idea nor control whatsoever over what my face is doing. had to prop up a mirror to get anything decent at all!

Hey Emir! Kitty, can't wait to see your assignment. :)

My question is... how did you come up ABI as a title???

abi means 'brother' in turkish in the casual way like you'd say, 'hey man'. it's what i call emir.

I "found" your blog through your sister Amy... wow, girl! I spent about 20 minutes reading and laughing last night! You have such a way with words, your storytelling is phenomenal. My favorite is your self-portrait composite, it took me several minutes to find all of "you" in the photo- that was SO cool! I can only imagine the amount of time to set that up and combine all of those photos! Keep up the awesome work, you are seriously talented! :)
