Mien: demeanor; also, aspect; appearance

I had so many thoughts (and so much fun) while shooting this, where to start?

I have always wanted to do one of those photo booth strip images, and while this isn't a true replica, this is how the image popped into my head after I read this morning's word. I realized I didn't have any true photos of just my face--and I began to think of how one's appearance really has so much variation because we all have so many different expressions. Plus I love to emote in front of the camera. It's why so many of my LPS entries feature me as a model (well, that and I'm easier to bribe with chocolate). I chalk it up to the years I spent in theatre. I actually majored in acting for two years in college, and I loved every moment of it. I could even cry on cue! Believably. :P

I also kept thinking of The Three Faces of Eve while shooting this, even though there are four faces. Even though my name isn't Eve. Perhaps I have Bette Davis eyes, though?

...Yeah, I kind'a thought it was a stretch, too.

But, hey, you get four photos for the price of one today! That has to count for something.
