To balance that out, I thought I'd post some awesomeness that doesn't blur any socio-political lines--just unadulterated awesomeness.
Check out the photos of Los Angeles-based freelance photographer Katherine Elizabeth. I was most intrigued by a set she called 365, a series of 365 self portraits completed over the course of one year (aka, 365 days). The lighting and coloring, styling, etc., of the photos are pretty amazing.
I've added one of my faves from the group, "Batwoman (026/365)". Check out the set and enjoy yourself immensely. Have an awesome time!
