and i can't even find the forgheen crafty horse, never mind getting back on it. I haven't been able to create anything at all, successful or not. frustrating! so hopefully a little bit of prompted inspiration push will help me clear things out in this new year. as such, i've decided to join sally russick in her lovely weekly photog challenge, "focusing on life". sharing one prompt a week should be a beautiful experience, shouldn't it? and being able to concentrate enough to get one specific photo or a set of pictures will be good for me....and keep me a bit more present and here, hopefully! so please join me and many other blogging friends on saturdays to see what we are up to!
our first "assignment" this week was to take a self portrait. yes, interesting. i'm not comfortable in front of the camera. give me the safety and anonyminity of being behind the camera and color me happy. so this was indeed a challenge. an accepted one, however.
but all ya get is that one picture. and I'll be honest, it was a near thing...the dog, however, wouldn't stay in my lap long enough to help me get the picture i was looking for! truth. i was trying to skirt the challenge and have the big boy obscuring most of my face. and i was thisclose to just taking a pic of my new booties and saying "there ya go!"
and yep, i've filtered and edited the hell out of this photo ;). and have gone darker with the hair and gotten a new sassy short cut since my last posted pics, either on FB or anywhere else too ;)
so, then, there you go. me. in a hazy, lazy self portrait. do you think taking self portraits are difficult?
please join me and everyone else next week, when we'll be sharing our one word for the year. which i still need to discover. of course.
