A picture can often say a lot about not just the subject, but the person behind the camera. Especially if it’s a photograph that reflects that person. I have a two bookshelves, that once were part of an entertainment center. Several moves over the years broke off the already flimsy middle section of the entertainment center, and since I can always use more storage space, I have kept the two bookshelf/sides.
Currently they hold a plethora of “stuff” I have collected through the years. As I sat watching some television yesterday afternoon, I looked at all of my stuff and realized that my bookshelves reflect me in a very visual way. I decided it would be interesting to take a picture of each section and show you all.
This is 1 of 6:
So as you can see, my reading material is eclectic, as you will see with the next photo posts I make.
Vampires: Yes, they have always fascinated me. Although I hate to admit this, but lately, I’m over it. Maybe it’s just the total saturation of vampires both in movies, books and television. I also don’t really go for the way they are portrayed these days. Some sparkly, some sex obsessed, and some just dumb.
The Strange: I’m always up for reading about oddities!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Loved the show! I really was very disappointed when it was cancelled. I thought there was still one more good season there.
Pink ribbon bear: I bought this many years ago, through Avon. It was during a Breast Cancer awarreness campaign, and it caught my eye. Proceeds of the purchase of the bear went to research. My mother died of this horrible disease, and whenever I can monetarily, I try to support.
Nefertiti: Another fascination for me. Not just her, but all things ancient, be they Egyptian, Roman or Greek. But, mainly it’s the ancient Egyptians that have always for some reason attracted me.
CD’s: Not that they attract me but I have a lot of files saved on these. I recently purchased a new laptop and have been in the process of downloading some saved files. I’ve also lost many things over the years and have been searching through these files to see if perhaps I have them saved here.
Incense: No explanation here. I simply love the smell of incense burning. I am however particular with the scents I burn. I like the earthy scents.
The dark fidurine: That is a figurine of Professor Severus Snape that a very good friend of mine sent me. I love it!
That tiny bottle: My boss got that a couple of years ago. I have no idea where he acquired that odd little bottle with the leprechaun, but he was going to throw it away and I thought it was cute, so I kept it.
