    Nice pics. I think the first one is really good actually! and I like the stylised, CD cover look of the second one.

    Good job capturing the mood. I have always used photography as an antidepressant so I hope it works for you.

    Good job, I like the uneasy feeling the odd angle in the second shot gives. Just curious, are the head phones symbolic or did you just happen to be wearing them?

    my ipod is the most important thing in my life, oxygen doesnt stand a chance!
    they are not symbolic in the picture they are just a permanent addition to my head.

    i AM the smiths ;-)

    you can see what music i listen to here: http://www.audioscrobbler.com/user/deadjoe


    i may focus on getting more self portraits, these were just taken today as i had a bit of a breakdown, what you can't see from these shots is that i was actually crying at the time! i always try and stay behind the camera, i ain't the prettiest flower in the bunch but self portraits are "where it's at"...

    :) Awesome job. Props for taking them when you felt so totally vulnerable, and even more for posting these. They have a great feel to them. Hope you continue to improve. Music and photography....great antidepressants. :thumbup:

    what a great variety of music, i like anything from heavy metal, to would you believe classical,i used to work on the door of a local nightclub, and worked with a lot of good bands such as: "manic street preachers", "james","stone roses", "happy mondays", and lots of others. But hey joe! i had someone very near to me with depression, she is as right as rain now, so keep listening to that great music, and posting those cool photos :wink:
