Quick question

How would you describe these photos?:



And the profile picture:



In particular, I'm referring to my skin.

Answers in the comments, if you will.

Rosy.

Pink.

Tobias Ziegler said...

English.

No, wait - rosy is what I was actually going to say. To avoid accusations of plagiarism:

As Rogenous (2008) argued, "rosy".

alabaster

Iain Hall said...

Ah the wonders of soft focus ...

Keri said...

It's a camera phone, Iain. There is no soft focus.

And I'm not shy about posting the shitty photos, so I think that's fair.

I do have reasons for asking.

Nic said...

Rosy, but of course not in an English way.

Is everything OK?

Keri said...

Nic - Things are fine, as far as I know!

Iain Hall said...

The picture is hardly what you would call crisp and clear Keri but at least the colour balance is better than the earlier photo which looks like it was lit by fluoro lights because your skin has a distinctly green tinge about it in that one.

The Editor said...

Taupe.

(I feel a bit dirty sharing a comment thread with Iain Hall.)

Keri said...

Iain - Perhaps I should explain: I'm referring to the colour of my skin, not the photo itself.

Ed - Taupe? At least you didn't say Fawn.

Sassy said...

It looks pretty and clear. Is that the right answer? Is there a right answer?

Mary said...

Strawberries and cream

Kate said...

Here from ICLW. I have to agree with rosy.

Cara said...

Blush - Can't wait for the answer!

Glowing. Fair.

Jill said...

I'll say Rosy, too. Is that what you're looking for? I'm bad at these games.

Keri said...

There is not right answer, I just needed an opinion on what people think of the colour of my skin when they see those photos for a post I'll be doing this afternoon.

Iain Hall said...

That bottom photo passed the fleshlight test!

Jenn said...

I was going to say clear. (ICLW)

Andrea said...

Smooth as a baby's butt! Lovely!

nancy said...

Fresh.

Jason said...

What's wrong with fawn?

Chuck A. Spear said...

The top pic is too small and the bottom one isn't sharp enough for me to give a proper dermatological assessment at this juncture.

Stacie said...

I think the picture has a little pinkish tint, but it is flattering.

Now I am curious about what the upcoming picture is of...
