Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art


The brief for this weekly photo challenge is to think about an image that could be used as a cover for something – a magazine, an album, a book perhaps.

I’d like to make an album at some point.  I know what the cover is going to be like, I’ve got it in my head, but I don’t want to reveal that yet.  I’ve started writing a book and I’ve got an idea of what the cover of that might be, even if I’ve got no title and no definite conclusion to the story.  So I’m not going to reveal that yet.

At some stage I’m going to put together my photo journal of Felt Sherlock‘s travels and I think this should be the cover:IMG_8072

I re-pierced it after Dad died and dyed my hair back from gingery blonde to dark auburn as I already had a job in a school then.

 

I don’t yet have a tattoo. I was very, very tempted to get one in Asia, but I’ve not been able to get my Hep B booster, so I thought I’d better not. My main problem, however, is that I’m too indecisive.  There are things that I’d like as a tattoo but I’m not sure I’ll still like in however many years.  Maybe I should just bite the bullet and get something done.
