+ [30-12-13] - Self-portrait | Kaleidoscope-Blue — taken in my home in Nigeria.
Note: one of my favourite Self-portraits to-date. I find the stories behind my self-portraits are often far more enjoyable than the portrait itself. Aside from the fact that I’m serving you guys 90s-soft-grunge-realness. HA!
In this particular shot, I am looking at my mum! She caught her “little princess” (don’t you dare laugh) in the kitchen at 7 AM taking photos. She was up, doing laundry and walked by the kitchen and caught me in the act. After a while, she dropped the basket she had in-hand, stood by the doorway with arms folded and watched in admiration. (Probably ‘cause the dress I’m wearing was hers back in the 90’s and I snagged it from her wardrobe. (((:)
I tried to maintain a straight face, but her glare was so intense, I broke. I looked over to her and I just melted.
I don’t think these words do justice to what was encapsulated in that moment, and how significant it is to me.

Needless to say, many Natives are not fans of the trend. But that hasn’t stopped the festival from capitalizing on the “white kids playing Indian” motif and offering tipi rentals for the low weekend price of … $2,200? Paying rent in a New York City rat hole never sounded so good.
I rarely ever do this but she melts my heart. Poor little baby Hope was chained up, doused in kerosene and set on fire by her owner who has since been arrested. She may have some permanent eye damage but that is the least of her struggles. You can donate here to help with her medical expenses so she can receive the treatment she needs. Every little bit counts so even though they have surpassed their goal I still suggest you donate even a tiny amount. I have zero tolerance for people who hurt innocent animals they are just sick and disgusting. What could this precious little baby have done to deserve such a thing? All I can say is he will get his and I hope it’s just as painful for him as it is for her.
Anyone who fucks up dogs is pretty much dead to me. Send on money if you can. They have surpassed the goal amount, but I know from just having little doctor visits a couple times a month, the bills stack. This dog deserves so much better than she was given, & hopefully she can have a new chance at a good life now.
