self portraits

I think this photo basically describe my mood lately quite perfectly. I've been thinking a lot about the direction I'd like to go photography-wise and I'm going to try to experiment a bit more with b&w composition. It's always attracted me more than the average coloured photo. Gives it a very dramatic effect when compared to others and seems to hold a lot of meaning and depth. I'd like all my photographs to have that sort of feeling but capturing said images is of course easier said than done. I have nothing better to do with my time than just take photographs anyway, currently being out of school etc. so I better take full advantage of it. I have definitely seen better days. Memories and things I'd like to forget in the past are constantly creeping up on me, more than I thought they would at this point in my life. I've been trying to buy my happiness back and grasp at things that I should not. Letting my thoughts get the best of me is not something I've been familiar with but it's been happening every single day beyond my control. I guess I just have to keep occupied and not drift away into my negativity. Really hope I can do it..
