That moment when someone makes you feel like pulling the curtains aside to let sunshine in, but you are still afraid to do so…

Hello Alexandra, lovely image of yourself. Really fits the solitude tag. :>)
thank you, conspicari 🙂 happy you like it…
thank you so much, rabirius!! 🙂
Wow! I think the shadow of the curtains really adds something to this, Alex. You do such great self portraits. Cheers!
lol, you better like the shadow cuz I was chasing it two days around my living room :))
the photo would have been totally different without it, you are right, Chris… thank you so much, am happy you like the self-portraits, these are not easy for me to make!!
I’m not sure if you were shadow dancing or shadow boxing but it was worth the effort. Cheers
both I guess lol 🙂
Very nice picture ! I love its composition. You’re a lovely actress… 🙂
haha, I’m a lousy actress… but I like the “lovely” part… thank you, Fil 🙂
I don’t know how you did this but it is gorgeous perfection. ❤
thank you so much, Lois ♥ well, I cleared the entire living room of all the furniture lol… the mirror is at a slight angle, and the camera is on a tripod right next to me, but not reflected in the mirror… and I let the gorgeous sunlight do the rest… so happy you like it!! xoxo
thank you, thank you so much, Lois!!
What a gorgeous shot and hope you let that sunshine i!
thank you soooo much, Patti!!! ♥
Lovely take on the prompt!
thank you!! 🙂
So beautiful, Alexandra! Perfect fit for the solitude theme! Marcus
thank you, Marcus, much appreciated 🙂 have a great week!!
You too :-)!
The curtains are wonderful – very creative!
thank you so much, Tina 🙂 happy to read your comment!!
I like your acting very much, and the geometry of the picture as well. Congrats to the movers too 🙂
thank you kindly 🙂 yes, geometry is a very apt word, I was consciously looking for it in the shot 🙂
lol, I moved the furniture only to clear the light on the wall, it is all back in its places now
Great shot Alex and love the music…
so good to hear from you Andy 🙂 thank you, am glad you enjoyed the music too 🙂 have a great week… and get back to that camera of yours!! 🙂
Long live rock and roll…
This is such a great set up and shot. So seamless. It now looks like you have a clean living room…hopefully it will stay that way. Enjoy the sunshine and hope more to come for you 😊
aww, love the word “seamless”, thank you so much, Mabel 🙂 I loved building the setup, it was more fun than shooting the photo lol… I should have taken a photo of the setup as well, now that I think about it… lol, all the furniture is back in its place already, alas…
have a fabulous week, Mabel xoxo
♫ So let the sunshine in
Face it with a grin
Smilers never lose
And frowners never win
So let the sun shine in
Face it with a grin
Open up your heart and let the sunshine in ♫
(I was going to say, “So how did you take the photo????” but someone beat me to it lol)
thanks, Gaya ♥ am glad I made you sing lol…
so cool actually that the photo made you wonder about how it was shot, thanks much for that also…
Lovely bit of geometry with the triangle of light.
I won’t say much, but I’ll say this: Yeah.
hell yeah, Viking :D)) xoxo
Such a beautiful work of art! Really love the light and shadow!
thank you sooo much for stopping by, Susan, very happy you like the shot… 🙂
Jolie compo, la lumière est bien filtrée et la forme géométrique de sa diffusion me plait particulièrement.
Bonne fin de soirée.
merci, Thierri, for your lovely comment :)) xoxo
Great self-portrait! And I just love Muse!! 🙂
thank you so much, am happy you like the photo and enjoyed the music too :))
You’re very welcome Alexandra! 😄 Have a lovely weekend! xxx
You look beautiful, vulnerable, and ready (can’t say for what, anything really, but if u ask me, me personally, I would say: for happiness!)
thank you so much, Mirjana, you just put a smile on my face with that lovely comment 🙂 am not ready for anything yet, not sure if ever… but I reached some inner balance and that’s good… maybe that’s the happiness, who knows 🙂 xoxo
Clever shot! The invitation to let sunshine in is represented in the shadow of the curtain, the mirror seems to be depict continuing self-analysis, and the ample negative space seems to suggest the inbetween.
thank you so much, Kishore!! you are spot on, as always!! I used the mirror as a symbol of insecurity, “mirror mirror, on the wall?”… plus it provided the frame to intensify the sense of isolation and loneliness… it was a fun to build the setting of the shot, cleared the wall of all the furniture after I noticed the light forming the patterns there… and exploring mirror reflections has been fascinating too… always happy to read your comments ♥
I guess we are either artists, or we’re not. I don’t see shadows, moved furniture, angles, whatever. I see the woman. Or I should say, the physical manifestation of the woman.
then you see right into the heart of the image, and that’s all that matters… good to hear from you!
