A photo a day – lips

To those of you who posted good wishes – thanks. I am feeling better and plan to get up and out for a while to blow my cobwebs away.

Today’s photo is about health – I have blood in my lips and colour in my cheeks 🙂

Faces are funny things when you study them – you notice all the little flaws. I think photos of lips usually take on an iconic approach where these flaws are removed and the viewer is left with an unrealistic  image of lips. For example if you type “lips” into this (link) photo stock site see the types of image it offers you – iconic, and largely female. If I type in “men’s lips” then I get mostly head shots of men.

The sociology of imagery is interesting …..
