Photo Hunters


About Photo Hunters, Photo Hunters Themes 2008, more Photo Hunters posts for today's theme.

The Photo Hunt for today is: self (yourself or part of you)!



I took several different shots of both ears to come up with the best one. Hey, holding the camera out with one hand and snapping it takes real art to perfect, ya know! Haha. I only have 5 earrings in each ear now. The most I had was 7 in each (7th in very top of ear wouldn't heel, so I eventually took it out), and for many many years I had 6 in each... then the ears rejected #6 big time. I took a cool photo of my feet too, but thought this might be more 'unique'... or not, haha. I'll see as I check out as many other posts as I can get to.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

EDIT:
I just wanted to add that face and body piercing as well as other things like those huge holes in ears, etc. When I got my ears done it was before these things became popular in our society. It was somewhere around 30 years ago.

THat's a really nice take on this week's theme. I love your ear rings. I'm not pierced but my other half has three in each ear. Have a great weekend

Liz Hinds said...

Very pretty blue earring. And very clever to take that shot of your own ear!

Hootin' Anni said...

This looks like my daughter's ear! She has several piercings, and I hope she stops...when her ears are covered. Lordy...to think she may get her tongue pierced just creeps me out. rofl


Mine's posted. "I'll show you mine if you show me yours". [and it's not what you think! ::giggles::]

That's a neat idea!

YTSL said...

Wow, 5 earrings in one earlobe = 5 more than I have, so it's hard for me to imagine being able to fit in 7 earrings onto one earlobe! ;b

Gattina said...

That's the first ear I see today ! so far I only saw fingers, lol !

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

I just have a minimal two per ear. I love your shot though. And I'm impressed that you were able to shoot your own ear so well. :D

Happy hunting!

Heather said...

Only 3 for me--great choice.

Melli said...

LOL! I did an ear too... no piercings though! It was a good experiment -- I never get to SEE my own ears!

I tried to snap one of myself and finally had to recruit hubby to do the job! :)

Nice job.

Happy Hunting, Alice from your friend CrAzY Working Mom.

Hi alice!, the plant is actully a wild tea endemic in the tropics, many studies were conducted and this plant showed many medicinal effects. I'm not quite sure of the scientific name for this plant but I'll tell you soon after I researched it.

Many tea plants do have beneficial effects on us and i'm sure your plants also give you refreshing feeling if make it into a drink...

Anyway you have a cool photo, piercing is now becoming fashion the world over and I'm glad to know you are one of those who love it. Given a chance I would like to have it but my work place is a bit strict on that matter so better yet I'll play safe and not to wear one.

Adios Alice and Thanks....

Wooha, that's a neat close up when you look at it large! GReat captured, as you said, it's difficult to take one of yourself.

Nice earrings, especially the big one and the small red one!

Its nice to see you or part of you...happy hunting!

CRIZ LAI said...

Maybe it's not that common to have so many earrings at the same time over here but the trend is catching up real fast. Some guys even have more than the gals. :P

What a great way to show your personality without showing your whole face! It's a little bit mysterious that way.

Rebecca (Ramblings by Reba) said...

I like your bottom earring quite a lot. :)

peppylady (Dora) said...

I see some self shot could be hard.
I guess I took an easy way out for my photo hunt picture.

5!!! The dangling earring is looking good :)
Have a good Sunday :)

Lovely. Your ears dress better than I do!

Definitely unique! :) Are they birthstones for loved ones?

jmb said...

Alice this is an amazing photo. You sure do love those earrings. The dangly one is lovely. Have a good weekend.

dixymiss said...

Very creative! You must be very fleXible to capture this unique shot. Yes, I did take some liberties with my interpretation of the theme (OK, I cheated). ThanX for stopping by.

Dragonstar said...

Great! I think I might have mentioned (once or twice - LOL!) that I love ear-rings. I never went for more than two in each ear, and I probably won't now (I take much longer to heal than I used to) but I love the idea. Your dangly blue ear-ring is gorgeous. Lovely shot.

nice bling :D

philos said...

Wow... those are nice earings. :)

Anonymous said...

Goodness. That's a lot of earrings. I remember when I got my 2nd piercing in 1988 how adventurous and daring it seemed. I felt like such a rebel. How times change.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Katney said...

I don't even have ONE.

Cheerio said...

Wow! Look at all those earrings! It must take a lot of guts to have yourself pricked with all of those. I'm just contented with one. Can't stand to be pricked.
Thanks for visiting.

Lemonjude said...

That looks cool on you...a part that you should proud of..

Thanks dropping by my PH.

Berni said...

I like those earrings, the long dangly ones especially. Do you make them yourself.

ipanema said...
