I look into a mirror
I am moved to tears
I look too gorgeous
but bcoz I do not
“Hey you! why can’t you be
as pretty as you look
in your pictures”
Mirrored face is fake
but not as unreal
as the pictures
that Picasa remakes
Actually that is an exaggeration, as neither are my photographs too good nor is the actual face in a mirror too bad. Both are average, like that of every other common woman. But film stars and magazine models can very well sing this poem.
In general, these days people experiment with their photographs by modifying it slightly, giving it a special touch via picture editors like Photoshop, Picasa or Pic Monkey – lovely sepia, glow or other touch-ups.
Good thing is, most people use such image editors at one time or the other, so it’s kind of ok to do such touch-ups. Everyone is equally fake, or should we all are equally creative.
Probably it is good for self-esteem; quite similar to the purpose of our beauty enhancing make-up, foundation, BB creams, concealers etc, that do nothing much. Illusions and temporary effects in this era of quick-fixes. Instant happiness.
But do they give happiness? Well, kind of. Like children pleased with toys.
