Faceless Friday

For those of you who didn't know....I played the violin for 6 years! I know, I know...you're probably thinking "she did whaa???" 

Haha I had always wanted to play the violin, and I guess after a couple years of me begging my parents, they got so annoyed that they finally gave in and bought me one! I took lessons and played in the school band off and on throughout middle school and high school.

My good friend Holly needed to use my violin for a photography project, and while she was as it, I asked her to snap a few photographs of me with my violin. I only have a few photos of myself with my violin (mostly taken at my middle school band concerts), so I thought it would be neat to have a 'nicer' photograph. And of course Holly did a fabulous job!

I actually JUST had my wisdom teeth taken out the day before this photo-shoot, so my face was um....well....kinda sorta fatter than usual. And I had a large green bruise on my jaw that was not able to be covered with makeup! So faceless photos it was!   

Holly needed photographs to represent different genres of music for her project, and ended up using me as a 'model', since we were conveniently already in her boss' photography studio....(see photo below)

Does it makes me look like a hard-core rock star or something?! I seriously just love this particular photo...it shows my inner punk side. Not that I'm a huge punk person, but like most people I have a huge imagination and have always wondered what it would be like to rock out on stage. I'm a huge music fan. When I put my earphones on....my life instantly becomes a music video. So this photo really fits me. 


Unfortunately I haven't played my violin as much as I wish I had time to. But a few college friends want to enter our college's upcoming talent show as a group...they play their guitars as I play my violin. Haha I don't know if that will ever happen, but we will see. 

Have a wonderful weekend! 
Peace
