I was thinking about how leaves are a part of nature and the fact that they are falling mean that they are shedding and the plant is growing. I was thinking that this image has two sides. A woman who is natural and accepts herself, but is shedding her idea of her own thought of what beauty is. That one side is a dark skinned woman who sometimes wishes she was light skinned. And the light skinned woman who wishes she was dark skinned. Since yellow represents wisdom/joy/happiness and the fingernails stay the same color on both sides, it means to me the reconsiliation of wanting to be soemething other than what is. Accepting of oneself. The eyeliner squiggles remind me of the eye of ra or (horus); The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet which means Green; known to the Greeks and Romans as “uraeus” from the Egyptian “iaret” meaning “risen one”. This persona depicted in this image means that she has risen above her ego and sees equality in both because they are one in the same. Furthermore, green is life. Abundant in nature, green signifies growth, renewal, health, and environment. On the flip side, green is jealousy or envy (green-eyed monster). Since the leaves are falling and the eyes are now equal, it shows that in general this woman has grown and has accepted her roots that she is all and all is within her. ♥”
Absolutely love it. The best piece of writing to “Two Sides To Every Story” that I’ve seen from anyone else. She has immensely inspired me. I love learning from my supporters about my photography. Check her out here.
