 My Big Fat Photo Essay, first posted on June 23, 2011 (3 weeks after my competition)
From Dowdy Ass-Kicking Feminist

Photo essays are supposed to speak for themselves, as if the meanings of images are obvious and the same for each viewer. Well I think we all know what bullshit that is, especially after the Family of Man fiasco at the Museum of Modern Art in 1955. All  the same I will keep my comments to a minimum as I document my transformation from angry reproductive rights activist (well I am still one of those) to dehydrated bikini exhibitionist. Enjoy, and as always, I welcome your feedback.
