For WDYS. Thank you very much for hosting it dear Sadje. I’m late in my response this week.
“Could I remove these freckles and pimple marks on the face?” Asked the photographer to a 24 year old while selecting her pics after a photo shoot.
“This is for someone who could be my life partner, don’t you think I should look real?” The girl questioned … (In india arranged marriages are common. The photographs of the prospective bride/groom to-be is shared and exchanged matrimony beareaus and a match-making happens. Later the couple meet to see if they can lead a life together )
I’m in love with my imperfections
I’m in love with what is natural
I’m in love with my colour
I’m in love with the blemishes
I’m in love with my raw self!
I’m very much the old school types..
I’m in love with the way my creator made me!
For this is what I am! It is what it is!
For I believe, I’m beautiful, the way I am!
A/N : I respect and I’m in awe with photoshop. It’s a tool which can be used in a lot of ways to improve the quality of a photograph
Once, I was going through a friend’s wedding album and I see the bride’s skin as smooth as butter. In reality she has a lot of pimple marks. I initially thought it was the effect of the makeup. But then I realised a big mole in the top of her lip is not there in the pics!! I asked her and she said it’s photoshop skills. She asked the photographer to make her skin n colour look “good”. While her wish of seeing herself with a clear skin got fulfilled, it left me with a question… isn’t it nice to love yourself the way you are?
There’s one telugu actress by the name Sai Pallavi. I don’t follow other language movies very much, but my kids loved this song called “Rowdy baby”. I was watching her on screen and I liked something about her. I then realised it’s her rawness. It seems she doesn’t allow too much make overs for her hair or skin. So I loved her “girl next door look”. I liked the fact that “it is what it is”, and that a movie actress from the glam world chose to look her natural self 😊
Thanks for reading. I love feedback 😊
