I’m in a diptyching mood I guess. Although I used to throw two or three photos together in succession as a sequence of shots, I did it mainly to save uploading time on Facebook. But diptychs are a bit different. They force me to be more intentional with the images I choose to sit side by side. This time I went for “grunge” to fit with the messy-bed-head theme. I found a TTV texture (Through The Viewfinder - very cool and I will elaborate in a future post) here, inspired by Heather’s WYP this week, and used it as a bit of border separating the two images. Although, traditionally, TTV’s are supposed to be square (correct me if I’m wrong), I wanted to try it out. I don’t know if it works or not but I think it’s kinda funky. I like the messy black borders.

I just discovered a new room to shoot in.  The bathroom!  Whoulda thought there would be such a cool glow coming through the window?
