What’s the best part of living in Australia? The beaches, the surf, beaches, and more beaches. What’s your most memorable story from living in Australia? Having my beautiful four-year-old daughter, Marni. How would you describe your face? Thick, flushed, round cheeks, full-faced, with a big smile. How would you describe the man you date? Funny, sensitive, outgoing, a total gentleman. If he was to draw your face, what would he draw? He’d probably draw me in all my different guises, maybe a soft-focus background of greenery and waterfalls, which would be Marni’s drawings. Tell us about the man you were dating. He’s the best guy ever. He loves to be with his friends, he loves to have fun, he loves to travel. He’s fantastic.
Why did I choose this photo?
Rachael Durie is a well known face from Australia’s social scene and is often seen at many top events including the Roger Waters concert and the Melbourne Cup.
What was my motivation for this photo?
I am hoping for a response from her, I love this photo because it reminds me so much of when I was a girl. I was at a kid’s birthday party and I was playing with a high chair for the party, when this woman asked me to pose for her, so I held the high chair (like she did) and then I asked her if I could take her photo.
Could I have taken a different photo?
Yes, but this one was more spontaneous. I am not a perfectionist when it comes to getting that photo just right. I am more about getting that spontaneous shot.
What is the best picture of myself?
This is an absolutely true question.
I think the best picture of myself is the one of me at day 11 (well, 14 days ago now) when I was having an absolutely hideous day. I was very tired and in pain from all the shenanigans of the day. It was very sunny and I was crying quite a lot.
On my face.
So I decided to take a picture and put it up on my Facebook page to share with the world. It was about a little over a week ago now. I put my hair back in a ponytail and wore a jumper over my T-shirt and I’m wearing a dark blue eyeshadow. I have had so much work done on my face. It’s just raw.
So I look at this and I look at my pretty healthy face. And I think, “Oh, this is what people are looking at all the time. And I don’t think I’m attractive any more.
How can I get “The Best Picture of Myself” ?
