My recent trip to NYC and the photos I took are fresh in my mind. But those photos… I included some of me (something I normally avoid like the plague) and now am forced to see what other people see when they look at me. When I think of how I look, I am still in my early 20s, with smooth skin and taut features. These photos show a woman with splotchy skin, tiny little eyes, a huge gap between the front teeth and an enormous double chin. WHO IS THAT?????????
That said, while in NYC, I had lunch at the Moda Restaurant (in my hotel). Before lunch, I was sitting in the lobby, planning my afternoon, when an older woman (70s or 80s, I would say) blew in. The concierge flew to her side, practically kissing her toes and welcoming “Lady so and so” back and “if there is ANYTHING I can do, please let me know.” I ended up being seated next to her in the restaurant. Lady so and so had had MAJOR facial work done. Her lips were plump and shiny, her cheekbones prominent, her eyes stretched wide open…it was incredibly sad to see. But that was before I saw myself in photos…I’ll bet Lady so and so photographs beautifully!<G>
