Behind the Camera



I would so much rather be behind the camera
being a voyeur of others' souls
than be laid open to the world





fearing I will be found
wanting
too plump
not pretty enough
too much
too little

Can you see my loving heart?
Is my inner beauty shining through?
That's what I want you to see.
Look for that in my self portrait.

Nice sentiment here, and the beauty of being behind the camera is that the photographer's heart often finds its way into the picture too, thus the inner beauty.

and yes...we see that inner beauty but it's totally dressed up with that outer beauty !!!

What I see is what you have written... a perfect reflection of your vulnerability and that is very endearing...

Wow, what a perfect sentiment for me for today! I just received an email telling me that someone on the internet dating site is interested in me. I haven't worked up the nerve to check it out, yet.

Beautiful picture. What a gorgeous mirror - you, too, are gorgeous, such as I can tell from looking at the pic.

I relate. I liked what Joanne said and second that. BTW< I met my husband on E Harmony -- which is how I ended up in Houston, as I was living in Manhattan. Married for the first time at 48! :-)

Wow Sydney - that's a great success story. I haven't met anyone on eharmony that I went out with more than once. And you were very brave to be open to searching outside your own stomping grounds.
