Today is my birthday. I am twenty-eight. Each year on my birthday I take a photo for my graceful ageing photography project and then I post it for all the world to see. I shamelessly stole this idea from Mandajuice, who has been doing it for far longer. This is the only time each year you’ll ever see me without any makeup on.
This is the third year I’ve been taking these photos and although I know it’s a little narcissistic, I do find them quite interesting. Over the past year I have changed my hair quite drastically, which I think makes me look a little older. My skin is looking a bit more tired – I am not keen on the redness on my cheeks. My pores across my nose are also entirely too visible, but aside from that, I don’t think I am looking too bad.
