Series: Visibility 1, 2, 3, 4

A series I've been playing with that developed into something more than I expected. One builds on the next, in order below from 1 through 4. I eventually took that literally with the last, a composite of the first three. If you click on them you should see larger versions.

What a beautiful surprise today! Beautiful you on Summer Solstice. Glad you joined the self portrait marathon. We are seeing each other more richly. I like this series very much...

Oh, good Lord. *You're* beautiful too? This is getting ridiculous.

Oh -- sorry -- that could be misconstrued. Not ridiculous that you should be beautiful. But that *all* these bloggers I've been reading should turn out to be this lovely is surely a wild statistical anomaly?

Wow, MB, you're blonde! Funny how we have certain images in our mind's eye. Those blue eyes, by the way, could be mine. How funny. These are great.

what a great surprise! :) i have always considered you mysterious, despite the revelations of your poetry. for me, a veil always seemed to "hide" you. so i am quite surprised to find the portraits of you here. you are indeed beautiful! i imagined you brunette - another surprise. and, the blue eyes are arresting...

The way the sun almost *latches* onto your face in #2 is very interesting to me. I like the 180 degree turn from 1 to 2.

Looking, looking, and seeing!
Love the variety of form/shape/proportion, nicely laid out.

Figure you've seen Sparky's Self-Portrait Marathon. You may need to share this with a larger passel o' people.

I agree with what 'Endment' said - this is a visual poem. And how lovely, and what a lovely surprise and great pleasure, to see your beautiful face, which is both how I imagined you, and not.

It's a beautiful thing, too, how this is snowballing - willingness to be seen is infectious (both to be seen and to be 'seen').

Dale, I think it's your turn! Sexual equality demands it (no, seriously, only if you want to...).

Hello, it's so lovely to see your face. How dreamlike, you appear and then fade. Pieces of you, like pieces of dreams. Beautifully done.

Anne, for some reason that does not surprise me. Even though I don't think I look like you!

Mary, yes, your guess is substantially correct. Thanks.

Brenda, Happy Solstice to you, too! I'm glad you enjoyed the series.

Michelle, thanks.

Dale, thanks for the clarification. And for your kindness. I won't debate statistics with you but I suspect your eyes and heart would find many beautiful.

Leslee, glad you enjoyed them. It is funny what preconceived notions we can have about each other!

Sky, you are another mystery, of course! As you might suspect, I hadn't planned to post these. But the series just got so interesting I changed my mind. I believe you are not alone in having imagined me brunette. Now I wonder why?

Dave, I appreciate your observations. I actually tried to make significant turns between each of these four, but the one you note is perhaps the most apparent.

Endment, thank you for that insight.

Pat, thank you very much. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. I'll stop by again, too.

Lori, thanks for your perceptions.

Jean, thanks. I appreciate your observations. You have been one of my inspirations in this work. I have enjoyed your series considerably.

Robin, thank you for your insight into the series. Your experience of it sounds not far from my own.
