Another from a past #mermaidparade in #coneyisland. This particular #piholeportrait was made with a #zeroimage #pinholecamera. The zeroimage is my primary #camera though I do use cameras I make in 4x5, 4x10 and 4x10 formats.
To be honest...this is really hard for me to post. The two photos following this one are sides of my face I absolutely HATE showing. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it’s something I’ve always been insecure of. My jawline line is extremely uneven and I can’t help but compare myself to other beauty influencers. I always think “wow, they have such a symmetrical features. If I were to look like that, maybe I would be noticed”. It’s draining and I’m tired of “hiding”. This is probably a small thing to all of you, but this is something I’ve really wanted to talk about on a bigger scale.
I’m also tired of the same five faces I see posted on company’s pages. Let’s see uneven faces. Let’s see more trans men and women in makeup. Let’s see more real skin; raw, up-close, gritty. I just want to see more of what the world has to offer.

Brooklyn Ironhide, from Peter Kokis AKA Brooklyn RobotWorks. The toughest of heroes lives on! He's a 170lb. exoskeleton of the cranky Autobot Transformer, seen here on the boardwalk in Coney Island, Brooklyn NY. USA!
(This is what happens when the mom is away, the cousins will play) “I think I am a good pup, I don’t poop in the house, I let anyone pet me, and I don’t fuss when you dress me, but now this Come on! How do I get myself into these situations” #dogsofinstagram #shorkiesofinstagram #mermaidparade #adogslife
