a happy mess :-)

a happy mess :-)

Here is my "happier" SP, specially made for those who worried about my moody pictures, at times disturbing and depressing.
Donít worry, Iím perfectly alright! Photography has become my way of self-expression in this particular gallery.
It may not always capture my usual self, but it reflects my many thoughts and emotions, right and wrong.
A very wise man once said, "No one can know us, when we donít really know ourselves".
You may not see what I see as it takes a deeper look at my pictures and my words to better understand.
It does not really matter. All I want is to stir up your own imagination and feelings.
As I discover more and more of myself, I hope you also do the same to yourself.
And yes, for now Iím a happy mess! :-)))

(Part of my new gallery: exposed...)

Powder your face with sunshine
Put on a great big smile
Make up your eyes with laughter
Folks will be laughing with you in a little while
Whistle a tune of gladness
Blue never was in style
The future's brighter when hearts are lighter
So smile smile smile

Powder your face with sunshine
Put on a great big smile
Make up your eyes with laughter
Folks will be laughing with you in a little while
Whistle a tune of gladness
Blue never was in style
The future's brighter when hearts are lighter
Future's brighter, hearts are lighter
When you're wearing a great big smile

Hello beautiful girl :) Even not seeing your eyes I can see your lovely smile and how beautiful you are! My Vote.
Galina Stepanova13-Nov-2006 19:20
Really like this smile though.

Beautiful! Love it, Al. Vote
Jim Ross11-Nov-2006 08:36
Love it...Cracking shot...
Doug Kessler10-Nov-2006 22:23
Yes, this is truly a joy to behold. Your smile here is in sharp counterpoint to the intense drama of the series. This is dramatic as well but in the sense of joy it brings to the viewer. Voted

Catherine_D31-Oct-2006 13:02
Hey smiley!!!!! :) :) :) Love this!!! :) :)
Guest 31-Oct-2006 05:19
Love this! Nice to see a "happier" SP. Still, evokes a sense of mystery because we can't see your eyes (I'm sure they are beautiful). As usual, very creative.
emmii!!!!!31-Oct-2006 04:47
Awesome work Ai Li once again!
The smile is beautiful but the messy hair just tops it off!
Dave Wixx31-Oct-2006 04:37
That's more like it!! Another great addition to a great gallery.
Guest 31-Oct-2006 02:54 that a new hair colour?
Very nice..
Cindi Smith31-Oct-2006 02:52
I love it! I think you have done wonderful work and i love it all! V
Craig Persel31-Oct-2006 00:16
This is amazing.
Ann LT30-Oct-2006 22:56
We can't see your eyes but your smile shines through!
Made me smile too. :)
JSWaters30-Oct-2006 22:48
A wonderful counterpoint to the often wrenching depictions you've posted in this gallery. I, for one, like the tendency to hide your eyes - it pushes the viewer to examine more closely your intention with the image.
JD30-Oct-2006 21:09
I agree that we could see you smiling while unhappy or see you depressed while very happy to make the shot. A nice messymmetry!
Guest 30-Oct-2006 19:58
Ed Goodnight30-Oct-2006 19:52
Your smile comes shining through
lovely image
Phil Douglis30-Oct-2006 19:51
You have never made a portrait of yourself that is not in someway an abstraction, forcing the viewer to imagine what is not shown. By hiding the eyes here you make us see them in our minds. Yes, you tease us with a shy smile behind a mass of tangled hair -- but at the same time, you tell us who you are...a gentle, thoughtful soul with a big heart. We may not be able to look into your eyes, but you continue to grow in front of our eyes, Ai Li.
TimA30-Oct-2006 19:40
Glad to see you happy :-) well portrayed and voted.
Bill Harris30-Oct-2006 19:32
Unique and creative, processing too which fits exactly the image :) V
Ray :)30-Oct-2006 17:50
Looks as if you are hiding a very pleasant secret...
Love it.
Mostafa Moftah30-Oct-2006 17:45
Fanciful SP, waiting to see your eyes :) ~V~
petem30-Oct-2006 17:18
You'd make a wonderful mannequin too!! Happy Monday.
Kathy Pedersen30-Oct-2006 16:11
A strong emotive portrait Ai Li, in you exposed gallery you have yet to show us your eyes~ However, the un brushed hair and the glowing smile portray's the beautiful "you"
Victoria30-Oct-2006 16:02
Brilliant creative one, yes, a little mess hair but gorgeous smile , cool......VOTE , Bravo
AL30-Oct-2006 15:23
You may not see my eyes but my smile is real. And I'm no mannequin! LOL... Will try to do a SP with eyes next time, just for you :-)
david procter30-Oct-2006 14:49
Fascinating portrait Al Li, yes you may well be smiling but I dont believe you can really show happiness until you look into someone's eyes ...the window to the soul as Kal quotes. I find this really quiet unnerving as if caught in a mannequin's gaze.
Guenter Eh30-Oct-2006 14:48
Daring work Ai Li! I see a hidden smile behind the "mess" of hairs! Thanks for the "happy" message!!!
Adrian Reilly30-Oct-2006 14:37
Great to see you smiling Ai li X
Kal Khogali30-Oct-2006 14:34
Anonymous beauty Ai Li, not just on the outside....!! ;-))K PS, I like the idea that we can't see your eyes (the window to the soul), your mouth now speaks, and we have to listen.
