Worshipping The Porcelain God


Don't even ask me what possessed me to actually go through with staging the shoot that produced the selfpic above - cuz I honestly couldn't tell you what it was. All I know, is that as soon as I saw those old nasty crusty potties - I instantly got the idea to stick my head down inside of 'em...despite the fact that this is what I came face to face with when I did:  


Yeah...pretty gross, eh?

Anyway...moving on to a slightly less grody topic - the grand opening of, and the artist's reception for the premier photography exhibit being displayed at my new "1 lb. Gallery" - is this Friday, July 5th - from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. - WOOT!

Those of you who live anywhere nearby, BEST get your butts over there to celebrate this festive occasion with me - and I mean it! I'll be serving complimentary beer & wine, along with my own version of Kir (mixed with Prosecco, instead of white wine - Yum-mo!) - plus scrumptious hors d'oeuvres (made with locally grown and raised ingredients), provided by my dear friend - the owner of "The Foxy Kitchen" in Millwood, Va. - THANK You, Carole!!!

It's gonna be a mess of fun (hopefully not TOO much fun though...would hate for any of us to end up with our heads in the toilet, heh!), and I do so hope that at least some of you might be able to make it! But for those of you who can't, don't sweat it - cuz there's always next month!

  1. Lauralyn you continue to amaze! Who would have thought that a picture of someone with their head in a toilet could be interesting but you make it so.

    Wishing you well for the opening. I would love to be there but I am too far away. I look forward to seeing some pictures of the event, and of the gallery.

    And more of you innovative photographs.

    1. @Raymond - Haha! Leave it to me to try and find beauty in an inherently disgusting theme!

      Thanks for your well-wishes, Raymond! It stinks that you don't live a little bit closer, but if you do ever happen to get down this way - PLEASE stop in to see me!!!

    1. @Ted - Yeah! If sticking your head in a filthy toilet isn't dedication to one's craft - I'm not sure what IS!

      YAY! So excited that you might make it to the opening! Just so ya' know - my gallery is located on a pedestrian walking mall, so there's no parking out in front of the building. There is plenty of off street parking, and even a small parking lot behind my building on Indian Alley, but it may be all full. I'll email you my ph# so you can call me if you run into any problems. Hope to see you there!

    1. @Penny - THANKS, Chica! I am SOOOOOO excited about the gallery :D The space looks amazing, plus I'm so proud to have Osmyn Oree's work on display for my first show! I honestly can't believe how lucky I've been lately...lucky enough to not even catch some wickedly horrid disease from sticking my head down into that heinously dirty toilet, too -HAHA!
