Mature warning because some people freak out about breasts, even on statues.
This is the other part of my self portrait assignment for my computer class. We had to make a self portrait that did not include a picture of us, but rather, pictures we took and make a 'story' from it. My story for this is, I'm in love with France, Paris especially. Nike and Venus are 'broken' because I'm not in France yet, but they will be when I make France my home. I hope that made sense lol Also, the tree represents my dad, he took the picture. This picture is ultimately about my future, and I included that picture because I hope that my dad is part of my life in the future. But that's ever if I can forgive him.

All pictures but the tree were taken by me. The tree pic was taken by my Dad on a business trip to Germany about 7 years ago.

On the story you gave: what I gather is your dad is not a part of your life currently so here is an interpretation.

Your current state is that you are armless like that Venus statue because you cannot hug your dad right now.

And in the future you need to be prepared to be headless since you want to forgive him and you can only do that by forgetting the negative thoughts in your mind.

The tree, to me looks leafless, maybe I'm wrong there, but if it is then it could represent your dad's thoughts: he is without that which furnishes his life with joy and beauty.

The rough sea, what both of you must overcome.

The tour Eiffel, I think of it as something to do with genetics, DNA structure, blood, there is something that connects you both at the base, you both just need to get to the top of the tower.

And the images overlap the rectangular border and those blocks like a jigsaw puzzle... does that hint towards a world where nothing is, literally, set in stone - the picture can change, Nike need not remain broken, Venus need not remain armless, the sea need not remain rough, the tree need not remain leafless and the tour Eiffel... you can get to the top because there is a life beyond the borders...

Thanks! One is of a stone wall in Italy and the other is of blurry Christmas lights. They had to be all images that we've taken, so it was tough coming up with textures
