I had a hard time deciding what to do for my “Selfie” today. I don’t like taking photos of myself, for a couple of reasons, but mostly because getting selfie photos to look right is tough. Then, there was the “how much do I want to reveal of myself” conundrum. (Reveal meaning…seeing more than my eyes or a side profile but my whole face.) After taking many photos in different environments…in the office…in my car…at the beach…I settled on two different photos. I tried each one several times via instagram but not finalizing them until I decided this morning.
After finalizing and sending it off to the different social media sites I participate in, I held my breath, worried a little about the way looked (this is one reason I don’t photograph myself) and a little about how much this is going to reveal who I am (what I look like…because sometimes I like to be a little anonymous). Then, the comments and likes from my friends started to roll in the respective social media sites. Just receiving the likes and the comments made me feel a lot better. Thanks Friends!
Here’s my “Selfie” for Day 8 of the August Break 2013:
Well, that’s over. Now, I can get on to the “easier” (maybe) photo prompts.
