You wrote that your attempt to hang yourself failed. Hope we can assume that the overdose did as well. Remember that things could always be worse and quite often are. Your photos are well done in mho. I used to take nude photos but now, at my age, my husband demands I keep my clothes on. Welcome to the Forum (As Caligula was fond of saying!). Say hello to everyone on the other side of the world.

Thank you all for the beautiful comments, you too sparkle, this comment slightly confuses me though, I never tried to hang myself or commit suicide in any other way..

You have a photo of some girl with her feet off the floor and a fallen stool beside her. You made the comment that you would like to make a film about the subject. The subject of your current photo is a naked, sleeping (?) girl almost falling out of bed. My attempt to be humorous seized upon the co-relation.

I'm sorry I didn't pick up on the humorous note I'm actually a rather happy person, just interested in what I can't understand, (strong) emotions and most importantly in stories and there's simply not that much to say about being happy. Or so I feel.

Evocative image. Stirs up lots of emotions. I know nothing about portrait photography but this one really moves me. Excellent.

A marvellous image, these tasks are so difficult to maintain the discipline to keep going, especially when you know the subject so well.
