Focusing on Life~52 Photos...Week 1, Self Portrait
I jumped in at the last minute and joined Sally Russick's 2013 challenge...Focusing on Life 52 photos. Each week she will send an email prompt with a specific topic or theme for the week's photo. Week 1 was a self portrait. Yikes...I join the numerous ranks of women who really hate having their photo taken. Like many others, I can't seem to look at my reflection without listing all the things I hate about the way I look. Whenever hubby takes photos of me and the boy, I always have final say in any that are emailed out! It took about 20 or more shots to get the one I use on my blog and that I include with bios!
I actually put the task at the back of my mind, then late on Saturday, remembered, pulled out my phone and took an Instagram shot. I decided to go partial face, and used a filter to add a grainy, newsprint look.
Oh, well...maybe if I force myself to do this more, it won't be so painful!! Thanks, Sally!
