A little something to think about

I was going through some tumblr-blogs (or what the heck you're supposed to call them) and came across with this piece of text:

It scares me that some people believe that if one chooses to be naked on the internet (or engage in any kind of sex work), one forfeits any kind of privacy, personal space, respect, etc. As though being naked on the internet gives the entire world the open invitation to look at you, touch you, or make you feel uncomfortable.
Fuck you, fuck you…..andddddddd fuck you. (Source: Somos lobos, no ovejas, originally from here.)

I'm not going to make this another tumblr-kind of blog, but this text just hit me. Some time ago I had a conversation with a person about putting my pics on the internet and how I react to reactions by people who see them and comment on them. I think I can still be creeped out about comments or get sad or angry about what people on the internet, or otherways, say, even though I have made the decision to put pics of my (naked) body here. It does not justify everything even though I myself put myself in this situation and I don't need to feel bad even if I get upset or feel uncomfortable.

No one still has no right to make me feel uncomfortable, even though this blog is here and these pics exist.

Do I make any sense? :D

Oops, I totally thought that I'd posted pics by Teemu that we took on my last trip to Helsinki. But apparently I haven't. O.o Dearie me.

Anyways we did a test shoot and he tried out some lighting techniques and so on. Here are a couple of things that came out of it. :)

Three quite different looks with the same make up and hair. Well, for me it's all about make-up and hair and outfit, since I don't know much about lights and such technicalities. :D

I already linked Teemu's flickr, here's his ModelMayhem page.

 Do you like me to write more - or less? Or are pics enough for you? :D Do you prefer me as a blabbermouth or silent..? x)

Oh, and in case you wish to see these bigger, check Nadi's blog!

Aaaand another little thing

I found out that some people had found their way to my blog through this blog: Luurankoja kaapissa (Skeletons in the closet).

And what I then found when I checked the blog. Me me me meeeee! JGM on a post about her favourite blogs that is. ^^ Aaaaaw! Heheee, it's about this easy to make me happy like a little kid. :D

I identify..

with her. :D

Anyone who's ever met me probably understands this as well.

By the way, this wonderful photo is taken possibly mid-sneeze. I found it here.

And then we shot some more. :D
(But that was maybe the best compliment ever. For any model. Coming from a photographer who shoots nothing for free. Well, except... ^^)
