Week 1! Self Portrait =/

Alright so here it is Week one of the photography challenge and it starts with a self portrait.  I had mixed feeling about this because 1 like most woman/mothers/people out there I HATE pictures of myself.  Well except the ones from when I was like 20 and then my wedding pictures which don't even look like me (in a totally fabulous kind of way) Any whoo... the thing that I did like about this was that it was easy all I needed was my camera and me! So after trying all kinds of nifty ideas that didn't exactly work the way that I wanted them to.  I did this accidental oops of a shot that totally spoke to me AND you can hardly see me in the picture BONUS! haha but I'm there and I think it's kind of neat. This is me as reflected by my horribly splotchy fingerprinted computer screen. I accidentally used my flash but it gave this vintagy (not a word) look to the shot.

Can you tell the kids have been touching the screen??

I cleaned my screen as soon as I was done BTW. Let me know what you think about it!
I also sort of like it a B&W as well.

So I'd say we're off to a good start. Next on the list is "what makes you smile"'s either gonna be my little monkedoos or food most likely but you never know! HAHA Don't foget to check back next Thurs. and see.  Also you can see the details and the rest of the list here if you're thinking of joining in on the fun!


  1. :) I like! You should try doing a refletion self portrait in an angled mirror. You might ike the resaults!
