Drowning 2 by myrkky Drowning 2 by myrkky
Self Portrait

Quite different to the 1st Version ;)

The writing in the chest reads:

RED INK: WANT TO KNOW WHAT I'M FEELING?

BLACK INK: While my lungs filled with water the intense burning in my chest fades away as I slip into unconsciousness and to my death - drowning.

Within 3 minutes of submersion I might be unconscious, within 5 minutes my brain will begin to suffer from lack of oxygen and the heart may stop pumping.

Breathing may have stopped, or I may be gasping for breath.

This piece is very intense, and it has a strong meaning it. It's breathtaking - literally.

:aww: Very neat as always, Love the concept, and I kind of agree with MerenTakana, Turquoise is more of an innocent color which kind of adds to the... in lack of better terms... creepyness? of the photo. I Get the cold Idea though too, Both I think apply. Very nice job as always.

With the turqoise clear water it almost looks more .... I can't place the right word.... horrible? not quite I know... but almost? like turqoise is an inocent colour, childrens are wearing it and in south water is full of colourfull fishes and coral and the water is only few feets deep and turqoise, still the fishes might have fangs or stiks or even elecrity, coral can be poisonous and it's sharp tought it looks smooth and sharks can smell even a tiniest bit of blood in the water...

I think this colour gives it a very cold feeling to the image.

No I do all the shot with timers, it takes a bit more effort trying to do everything in 5 secs from pressing the shutter to get in position but i manage it somehow :)

Hmm, the other one was all cloudy, a dream of it all, like a romanticised vision of drowning...and this one is cold, the actual reality of drowning. Or something. I like how the words on your chest are more visible in this one, crispier, it feels cold. :D I love your work.

i'm sorry, but this is far to painfully emo for me, i think there's a point to how far you can get across emotion.......writing it on your chest is a little obvious

talent, it is talent to capture your own emotion, it can be so easy to look upon others but so difficult to turn the camera on yourself.

my gosh, how do you take such great pics all by yourself, hang your camera to the selling or something?! I definitly prefer this version(though the other one is good as well) , maybe because of the colours, I dont know, anyway, this is awesome

Gah, I hate getting water up my nose. If it's chlorine water, it stings and everything. Awful! I can't even stay under for more than 10-15 seconds... ;_;
