And Happy New Year!Â I hope you all enjoy your new resolutions, organizing, spring cleaning, getting back into shape, getting back into ‘work’ mode (obviously not all applies to everyone!) – and anything else you plan on doing for 2012!
This year, I’ve joined up with a new group of gifted and excited photographers from BLOOM to embark on a new 52 week challenge.Â The theme this first week is the dreaded self portrait……
Been a rough week for me.Â On New Year’s Day, I ate some turkey and sauce for lunch and about 2 hours later I started to feel sick.Â Fast forward a few hours – (trying not to be so graphic) -I ended up throwing my guts so much that I ended up in the hospital from dehydration.
Came home – and was very weak for a few days after that – REALLY did not want to take a self portrait – (barely wanted to take a shower!).Â So – this is something I took before – the first (in the mirror) was taken in November of 2011 – tried the selfie – but failed since I’m sooooo out of focus.Â But – it makes me look better – I actually did no touch ups – the fuzz covered up the wrinkles! 🙂
This is one I took over the summer up North at my parents house.Â I just adore older, charming homes, and my parents live in one.Â The dirt, the chipped paint, the French fabric curtain in the basement window just sums it up.Â I spent a good amount of my life in this house.Â We don’t have too many of this type of house here in Texas (at least where I live) so I really do miss it.
Now please continue the circle and take a look my friend Leah at LCH Photography firstname.lastname@example.org to see her self portrait!Â (Also check out her graphic design skills!Â Awesome!)
