Oh shit.... by tarantulove Oh shit.... by tarantulove
"oh shit, I'm in love"

This is an older image, I forgot that I never posted it here, it's accually one of my favorite images I've made.

This was created after a revelation I had that being in love was probably the most irrational and masochistic state one could be in. No matter how much he/she makes you uncomfortable(stressed/depressed/insane/paranoid/ignored)/hurts you (physically/emotionally) or treats you poorly in general, and no matter how much you know it would never/should never last (distance/age/social status/future plans/moral beliefs/general compatability) you feel it's still a good idea to maintain the relationship.

"...but I love him"

I made this because, well, you SHOULD be terrified when you realize you're in love, because you're in for a long run of inevidable pain and suffering; is it worth it? Completely.

I would have liked to put this under conceptual photography, but admin would have bitched.

so true.
with love comes extreme happiness, yet at the same time inevitable pain.
this photo captures it well.

...btw, in my attempt to capture some of what i find "worth it" in our relationship...

as a girl dealing with the reactions of an ultra-conservative christian family to her otherwise perfect relationship with another girl, your description really hit me. im having a hard time deciding how "worth it" the relationship is; i could lose welcome into the homes of my family just for being with the person with whom im in love. how can i be willing to give up either?

ya see, i have a canon A510 and, i wish i could get the same amount of easy lighting and clarity with my eye shot. oh well, i love how it flows. a little touching and it works together. aside from the revalation is something straight out of a movie scene.

this is really really caught my's very original i've seen many pictures of altered/enhanced eyes (...that sounds kinda weird) but none with such a fun fresh vibe. it reminds me of pop art kinda...dun know why.
